Action(s) for leg extensors?

Hallucis Longus: Extend the first toe (metatarsalphalangeal and interphalangeal joint), dorsiflex the ankle (talocrural joint), invert the foot.
Digitorum Longus: Extend the second through fifth toes, dorsiflex the ankle, evert the foot.

Origin for leg extensors?

Hallucis Longus: middle, anterior surface of the fibula and the interosseous membrane.

Digitorum Longus: lateral condyle of tibia; proximal, anterior shaft of fibula and interosseous membrane.

13

Insertion for leg extensors?

Hallucis Longus: distal phalanx of the first toe.

Digitorum Longus: middle and distal phalanges of second through fifth toes.

14
