Flexor Digiti Minimi Brevis Muscle of Hand

Last Updated: Jun 11, 2015
Continued From Above... The flexor digiti minimi brevis muscle of the hand is a short muscle arising from the hamate bone of the wrist and inserting on the phalanx of the little finger, serving to flex that finger. A flexor muscle is one that decreases the angle between two bones, as in bending the arm at the elbow; raising the leg toward the stomach as in kicking a football; or bringing the lower leg up toward the thigh.
