The knee is an example of what kind of joint?
The knee joint is a type of hinge joint. It consists of three compartments that allow the knee to bend and function.
A hinge joint
No, the knee is not an example of this. The knee is an example of a hinge joint along with your elbow. The hip and shoulder joints are examples of a ball and socket joint as i…t has movement in all directions. Your knee can only move up and down like the hinge on a door. Hence that is why it is called a hinge joint!

No, knee joint is a compound joint (condyloid joint between tibia and femur and saddle joint between femur and patella). Yes, there is a pivot joint in the knee. Pivot joints …can also be found in a person's neck, forearms, and other parts of the body. This is because the pivot joint moves by rotating. The knee is mainly a hinge joint not a pivot joint.
The Name Of The Joint In Your Knee Is The Hinge. Wierd, huh? But It's True.
pivotal hinge joint that allows flexion, extension as well as slight medial and lateral movement.
The knees, toes, and fingers are all hinge synovial joints.
Our Knee Join is a hinge joint.
"It bends when you need it too. If we did not have that then you wouldn't be able to walk." what.
The knee joint consists of the tibiofemoral joint and the patellofemoral joint. It is a combination of hinge and gliding joints, respectively. It is also in a class called fre…ely movable joints, which are also called synovial, or diarthrotic joints.
Anatomically: pivotal hinge joint Structurally: synovial joint Functionally: uniaxial joint The knee joint joins the thigh with the leg and consists of two articulations: …one between the femur and tibia, and one between the femur and patella. It is the largest and most complicated joint in the human body. The knee is a mobile trocho-ginglymus (i.e. a pivotal hinge joint), which permits flexion and extension as well as a slight medial and lateral rotation.
