Location

This is a two-point set on the palmar aspect of the index finger, evenly distributed along the ulnar margin of the proximal phalangeal bone (line D). Divide the proximal phalanx into thirds, and locate these two points at 1/3 and 2/3 of the distance between the MCP and PIP joints. Some sources indicate this is a three-point group rather than a two-point group.
