    Would anyone like to comment further?
    Yes, in most cases it's just 'рука'. If you need a distinction for some reason you can use 'кисть' for a hand и 'рука' for an arm.
    And of course there is also 'плечо' (shoulder) and 'локоть' (elbow).

    The hand itself has two parts - a palm (ладонь) and a back of the hand (тыльная сторона). Wrist is запястье and fingers are пальцы.

    Clavicle - Ключица
    Scapula - Лопатка
    Humerus - Плечевая кость
    Medial Epicondyle - Средний надмыщелок
    Lateral Epicondyle - боковой надмыщелок
    Capitulum - Головка (кости)
    Radius - Лучевая кость
    Ulna - Локтевая кость
    Carpals (8 bones) - Запястье (8 костей)
    Metacarpals (5 bones) - Пясть (5 костей)
    Phalanges (14 knuckle bones) - Фаланги (14 костей)
    Send me a PM if you need me.
