Static position sense
The static position sense depend on the range of movement of the joint. At the level of the skin, skin receptors or exteroceptors are used to determine joint position. At the mid range of joint position the important receptors are muscle spindles. At the extremes of joint angulation, paccinian corpuscles, Ruffini's end organs in ligaments and deep tissues are used.
