An isokinetic device using surface electromyogram sensors attached to the biceps brachii (BB) and brachioradialis muscles was used to measure opposing muscle strength for each angular velocity ([degrees]/s) of the elbow joint.
Both the artery and the nerve lie under the brachioradialis muscle in the proximal and middle zones.
In its proximal third, the RA courses beneath the brachioradialis muscle belly, and then progressively leaves the lower surface of the muscle, running beneath the antebrachial fascia, between the brachioradialis muscle and the flexor carpi radialis muscle or its tendon.
Predominantly affecting male adolescent presented with insidious onset and slow progression of muscle weakness and muscular atrophy of the distal upper limb, including thenar, hypothenar, interossei muscles, and wrist flexors and extensors, with sparing of brachioradialis muscles. The border of muscular atrophy runs obliquely over the volar and dorsal surfaces of the forearm, called oblique amyotrophy.(7) The phenomenon of cold paresis is widely observed in the patients, characterized by exacerbating of finger weakness on exposure to cold environment.

It provides motor innervation to the triceps and brachioradialis muscles and to the extensors of the posterior compartment of the forearm.
