The muscles of the hand are as listed below:

  • abductor pollicis brevis
  • flexor pollicis brevis
  • opponens pollicis
  • abductor digiti minimi
  • flexor digiti minimi
  • opponens digiti minimi
  • digitorum profundus
  • palmer interossei
  • dorsal interossei
  • flexor retinaculum
  • palmer aponeurosi
  • flexor digitorum superficialis

These muscles along with many tendons help to control the hand and are broken down into different groups of muscles.
