Volar

Volar
Pertaining to both the palm and sole. It comes from word "vola" which the ancient Romans used for "the palm of the hand and the sole of the foot." By comparison, the term "palm" applies to only the palm (the grasping side) of the hand. The Romans actually used the word "palma" for the outstretched palm of the hand.
