The bones of the human skeleton structure, of which there are over 200, have a variety of functions. They support the body and they also offer protection to the soft parts below.
It is not only the vertebral column that has this supporting function. The bones of the upper and lower extremities also offer shape to the body. At the same time, bones serve as musculature attachment. Another important function of bones is its metabolic function (calcium metabolism, forming blood in the red bone marrow).
The bones are organs composed of several types of membranes. Its main component is bone membrane. This is the building material and the main support for the bones. However, there is also fatty tissue and hemotagenic tissue in the bone marrow.
We find cartilage at the ends of joints and in the growth zones. There is tight connective tissue at the periosteum. There is elastic connective tissue in the wall of blood vessels, which run in networks in the bones. Nerves supply the bones.
Altogether, we can say that the bones are the hardest material in the body, with the exception of the tooth material. They are a combination of high strength and low weight with great flexibility.
The Human 3D software features diagrams of the Human skeleton as well as numerous human skeleton pictures. The software presents a virtual atlas of the human skeleton.
