ORGANS OF RUFFINI ANATOMY

Encapsulated nerve endings, which are buried deep within the layers of dermis and subcutaneous tissues, one can find the organs of Ruffini. These are designed to respond to the sensations associated with forms of deep and continuous pressure as well as the sensation of stretching. Those which are found in the joint capsules are designed to detect the movement of that particular joint.
