What kind of joint is a multiaxial joint?
A multiaxial joint is a type of synovial joint. The x-axial refers to how many planes of the movement the specific joint provides, so in the case of a multiaxial joint, that means it provides movement in many planes of movement (multiaxial usually refers to three, which can then also be stated as triaxial).
