The bones in the upper limb are those that can be found within the pectoral girdle (3), arm (1) forearm (2), and hand (27). There are also a number of accessory ossicles, predominantly occurring at the wrist. Bones provide sites of attachment for skeletal muscles as well as a framework to neurovascular and lymphatic elements.
