With an ellipsoid joint, the circumference of the joint is an ellipse with the articular surfaces longer in one direction than the other. Therefore, the range of movement is very wide in almost all directions. It is a lot wider than the range of a gliding joint which normally allows movement in one direction. ex. ellipsoid joint is like the wrist ex. gliding joint is like the joint in between the head and the spine.

and is it gliding joint only on flat surfaces?
