ANATOMY 101:
Just dealing with Gross Anatomy, the Study of the "Anatomical structure seen by the naked eye, indicates that the THIGH, in Latin, the FEMUR, described as the heavy, long, bone is connected at both ends."

As part of the lower limb, going down, there is the KNEE & the KNEE CAP, the PATELLA, connected with the CONDYLAR joint, involving the shin, ankle & feet." This joint, the CONDYLAR, only "bends, folds one way & helps to support our body weight."
