Study Notes

  • Echte und unechte Gelenke werden unterteilt in „true“ and „false“ joints.
  • True joints are characterized by the presence of a “filling material” between the two bones, while false joints are limited in movement.
  • An example of a true joint is the shoulder joint, which is surrounded by a protective cartilage layer.
  • In contrast, unechte joints, such as the shoulder joint, are limited in movement due to the lack of a joint space.
  • Gelenkspalt is a space between the two bones in a true joint, while in an unechte joint, there is no joint space.
  • Bands, tendons, and muscles provide support and directionality to the lateral joint movement in true joints, while in unechte joints, these structures are limited.
  • Various joint cartilages allow for different movement patterns.
  • The ability to move only forwards and backwards and in all directions is due to the different joint cartilages that the body is equipped with.
