Lower member


The lower limb has a weight bearing function, locomotion, has the ability to move from one place to another and maintain balance. The lower limbs are connected to the trunk by the lower limb cingulate (hip and sacrum bones).

The base of the lower limb skeleton is formed by the two hip bones, which are joined by the pubic symphysis and the sacrum. The lower limb cingulate and the sacrum together form the BONE PELVE.

The bones of the lower limbs can be divided into four segments:

 Pelvic Waist & #8211; Iliac (Hip Bone)

 Thigh & #8211; Femur and Patella

 Leg & #8211; Tibia and Fibula

 Foot & #8211; Bones of the foot
