In a three-dimensional movement, there are three axes, two horizontal axes that form a plane and a vertical axis. It is important to identify the frame of reference used in the description of motion. An example of a reference system placed outside the body is the starting line in a race. The center of an anatomical joint, such as the shoulder, can be used as a reference system within the body. The arm can be described as moving through a 90° angle if abducted until perpendicular to the trunk. 6 m from the ground.

Therefore, sagittal plane movements are best viewed from the side of the body to allow focus on a frontal axis of rotation (Fig. 1-17). Similar to sagittal plane movements, frontal plane movements can occur about a joint. Characteristic joint movements in the frontal plane include thigh abduction and adduction, finger and hand abduction and adduction, lateral flexion of the head and trunk, and inversion and eversion of the foot. Frontal plane motion about an external point of contact can especially be seen often in dance and ballet as the dancers move laterally from a pivot point and in gymnastics with the body rotating sideways over the hands, such as when doing a cartwheel.
