The muscular system in our body is what allows us to move our body. There are many parts that make up the muscular system. This time we have a collection of muscular system diagrams that will help you study more about the system. All of the diagrams are posted in the following images below. Click on any diagram to enlarge and download it.
The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and circulates blood throughout the body. The muscular system in vertebrates is controlled through the nervous system, although some muscles (such as the cardiac muscle) can be completely autonomous. Together with the skeletal system it forms the musculoskeletal system, which is responsible for movement of the human body. In the following muscular system diagrams, you’ll see the skeletal muscular system diagrams.
Skeletal muscle is the only voluntary muscle tissue in the human body. The function of skeletal muscle is to contract to move parts of the body closer to the bone that the muscle is attached to. Most skeletal muscles are attached to two bones across a joint, so the muscle serves to move parts of those bones closer to each other.
The last diagram above is the unlabeled version that you can use as evaluational media. With these diagrams, we hope you find more information about the muscular system in our body. Get more educational diagrams in our site by browsing through numerous categories!
