At subsequent follow-ups of 3 months and 12 months, the patient remained asymptomatic with full range of motion and 5/5 strength on testing both elbow flexion and resisted forearm supination. The patient remained unchanged at final 2-year follow-up.
In a meta-analysis of 14 studies on intramedullar fixation of distal radius fractures, Hardman et al.21 reported ROM for flexion 53.62Adeg, extension 56.38Adeg, pronation 69.10Adeg, and supination 70.29Adeg, radial inclination 18.12Adeg, volar tilt 5.35Adeg, radial height 8.98 mm, radio-ulnar variance 0.66 mm.
The biceps brachii tendon functions in flexion and supination of the forearm.
The task started with a rest of 10 seconds, and it continued with a ten-second isometric contraction of hand open, power grasp, fine pinch, pronation, or supination, depending on the trial.
The respective ROM for the right extremity was as follows: elbow flexion, 120[degrees]; elbow extension, -35[degrees]; forearm pronation, 90[degrees]; and forearm supination, 70[degrees].
Subjects were instructed to carry out the four positions of the ROM: maximum flexion, extension and functional forearm rotation in pro- and supination. Attention must be paid to the difference between functional forearm rotation and pronation and supination.
Uncompensated (very uncommon) Calcaneus Vertical & Navicular Raised = Supination (lateral foot weight shift, 1st ray off ground) Compensated
As it was mentioned first, the cavus is corrected by supination of the anterior plantar compartment.
The support vector machine (SVM) classifier accuracy is over 96% for identifying of six motions (open to close, close to open, supination, pronation, flexion and extension).
Review of the current literature shows that neither reference values nor the impact of anthropometric factors affecting the strength of the elbow supination and flexion exists [12].
[7] compared four radiographic views (lateral, 45 degree supination, 45 degree pronation, and dorsal tangential views) to determine the most sensitive view to detect screw protrusion.
