|Hinge joints||elbow (between the humerus and the ulna)|
|Pivot joints||atlanto-axial joint, proximal radioulnar joint, and distal radioulnar joint|

Beside this, what type of joint is between the humerus and ulna?
Elbow Joint. The elbow joint is a complex hinge joint formed between the distal end of the humerus in the upper arm and the proximal ends of the ulna and radius in the forearm.
Furthermore, what are the articulation points between the humerus and ulna? The distal end of the humerus has two articulation areas, which join the ulna and radius bones of the forearm to form the elbow joint. The more medial of these areas is the trochlea, a spindle- or pulley-shaped region (trochlea = “pulley”), which articulates with the ulna bone.
Similarly, you may ask, what type of joint is formed between the radius and ulna?
The distal radioulnar articulation (inferior radioulnar joint) is a joint between the two bones in the forearm; the radius and ulna. It is one of two joints between the radius and ulna, the other being the proximal radioulnar articulation.
