The calcaneocuboid articulation is the joint between the calcaneus and the cuboid bone.
The ligaments connecting the calcaneus with the cuboid are five in number:
Movements : The calcaneocuboid joint is conventionally described as among the least mobile joints in the human foot. The articular surfaces of the two bones are relatively flat with some irregular undulations, which seem to suggest movement limited to a single rotation and some translation. However, the cuboid rotates as much as 25° about an oblique axis during inversion-eversion in a movement that could be called obvolution-involution.
