The arm is the part of the upper limb between the shoulder joint, and the elbow joint to produce the various movements of the forearm. There are five-arm muscles that play a role in this movement which are biceps brachii, brachialis, coracobrachialis, triceps brachii, and anconeus. The first three are responsible for the forearm flexion, the other three are involved in forearm extension. The anterior compartment contains the biceps and the brachialis. The posterior compartment contains the triceps. the Arm refers to the portion between the shoulder and elbow joints. It is the scaffold of the arm and its main functions include forearm movement, motion transmission, and passage of neurovascular structures along the upper limb.
