Our knees really keep us going every day. The combined structures in this area allow us to bend, walk, kick, and jump. The many muscles in this area include the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles, many of which originate in the insertions behind the patella, or kneecap. Of course, it is very important for medical students and professionals alike to understand the muscular system, especially in this very detailed area. For enhanced understanding, we suggest anatomical models such as our collection of muscled knee joints.
