Medical illustrations that explain the anatomy and physiology of the achilles tendon of the human ankle. The first illustration shows the achilles tendon, soleus muscle, gastrocnemius muscle, and the lower leg and foot bones from a lateral view. The second image is an enlargement of the same ankle and foot anatomy in an extended position, demonstrating the action of the achilles tendon during extension when the foot is extended.
