Fig. 1a. Quick survey. At rest, fingertips normally fall into a cascade posture of increasing flexion from the index to the small finger. With flexion, the fingertips tend to converge on one spot, roughly over the distal pole of the scaphoid. If fingertips descend together, they abut each other, but if they flex out of the synchrony, the tips tend to cross over each other.
