How do I navigate Hand Kinesiology?

This site is divided into four sections; Bone and Joint Structure, Ligament Structure, Muscle Arrangement and Nerve Distribution. To move between sections, return to the home page. Return to the home page by clicking the Hand Kinesiology link at the bottom of a page or click the picture of the hand. The methods of navigation for this site include hyperlinks, site maps, clickable images and roll overs. Each of these methods is described below.


The Hand Kinesiology site contains hyperlinks (also called links) that take to other pages in the site.  Hyperlinks are indicated by underlined text. You may visit a link as often as you like.

Site Map

The site map contains an outline of the content of the site. It has links to all of the pages within the site. The site map is the easiest way to jump to a specific page. Go to the site map.

Clickable Images

Some images within the site contain "hot spots" that link to other pages. The arrow cursor will change to a hand when you are over a hot spot/link. Click the hot spot to go the other page.

Roll Overs

Some images contain "roll overs" As you roll your cursor over an image, parts of the image will change. Like the clickable images, the cursor will change to a hand when you are over a roll over. Roll overs may or may not be links.
