The upper limb (upper extremity) is commonly referred to as the arm. Anatomically speaking, however, only the structures distal to the shoulder joint and proximal to the elbow are referred to as the arm. The structures distal to the elbow and proximal to the wrist are called the forearm (antebrachium), and the structures distal to the wrist are called the hand.
