Caption: The carpal metacarpal saddle joint of thumb rotates. Saddle joints which, as the name implies, fit together in a manner similar to a rider in a saddle. This sort of articulation allows a bending motion in several directions without sliding. The carpal-metacarpal joint of the thumb is an example of a saddle synovial joint. Movement may include flexion, extension, and adduction, along with abduction and circumduction.
