Ball joints bring flexibility to all sorts of systems and structures

Ball joints bring flexibility to all sorts of systems and structures
People use ball and socket joints every single day; they just don’t know it as it is in the form of their hips. They allow people to move in many ways - from gentle strolls to rigorous exercise. In engineering terms, axial ball or ball and socket joints rotate smoothly in all directions, so can absorb considerable amounts of misalignment of shafts and structural elements. As such they are invaluable in a wide variety of machines and engineered systems.
