What is "skeleton"?


The skeleton refers to the framework that supports and shapes the human body. It consists of all the bones, joints, and cartilage that form the structural framework of the body. The skeleton provides protection to vital organs, supports the body's weight, and enables movement. It serves as an attachment site for muscles, tendons, and ligaments, allowing for coordinated movement and locomotion. The skeleton also plays a crucial role in the production of blood cells, the storage of minerals, and the maintenance of overall bodily structure and integrity. The skeleton is a dynamic and essential part of the human body, providing support, protection, and the ability to perform a wide range of physical activities.
