Discover the anatomy that enables our fingers to move and grip so well in this engaging video for kids! Join our hand model friend as he flexes and extends his fingers, explaining the tendons, muscles, and joints involved. Kids will learn how the flexor and extensor tendons connect finger bones to muscles in the palm and forearm. See how these tendons allow our fingers to bend, straighten, and grasp objects with coordinated motions. Simple graphics demonstrate the joints where the finger bones pivot. The perfect introduction to the basic biomechanics that give our hands their impressive dexterity and how the fingers are able to move independently.
