Cool Anatomical X-Ray Gifs That Show How Joints Work

Ever wondered what your skeleton looks like in motion? Take a look at these gifs of joints in action under X-ray.

Most people don’t really think about joints unless they start to become painful. In fact, their motion is really quite beautiful, but that beauty can be hard to appreciate because we usually can’t see how the bones are sliding around relative to one another.

This time it will be possible thanks to these X-rays gifs created by Cameron Drake of San Francisco. He has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing.

Please Note: Most of the credit for this work belongs to Dr. Noah Weiss for conceiving the idea and producing the footage. To See the final Gifs in action visit:
