(sū'pi-nā'shŭn), [TA]
1. The condition of being supine; the act of assuming or of being placed in a supine position; rotation of the forearm such that the palm of the hand faces anteriorly to the anatomic position; rotation of the foot such that the plantar surface of rotated upward.
2. The opposite of pronation.

2. Transverse plane motion at the radioulnar joint or transverse tarsal joint.

supination

The act of turning the body to a SUPINE position or of turning the horizontal forearm so that the palm of the hand faces upward. Compare PRONATION.

The biomechanical lab study found no difference in flexion force or supination torque between the anterior and posterior reconstruction groups.
However, because strength and endurance of the muscle can decrease by about 25%, physical laborers and high-demand athletes may notice a degree of residual weakness with supination and elbow flexion.
The subject was asked to perform an isometric contraction for five movements: hand open, power grasp, fine pinch, pronation, and supination, but this time the trial consisted of three parts (Figure 4):
Supination and pronation were measured with a neutral position of the shoulder (0[degrees] shoulder abduction) and 90[degrees] of elbow flexion and a pencil placed over the distal palmar groove of the hand.
Between groups comparison showed that there were non-significant differences between the two groups at the baseline measurements of all values including NHPT (p = 0.582); FM tUE (FM A to D motor function) (p = 0.123); FM UE (FM A motor function) (p = 0.303); elbow extension (p = 0.067); and forearm supination (p = 0.851).
These patients differ from calcaneus varus because they are not able to achieve any supination prior to push-off.
In this study EMG signal are acquired by placing bipolar Ag/AgCl electrodes on the left and the right forearm surface, then features are extracted for classifying, five hand movements; finger flexion, wrist flexion, wrist extension, pronation, supination (see Figure 2).
The aim of this study is to investigate the supination and flexion strength of the elbow joint--the main function of the biceps brachii muscle--from a large cohort of healthy participants without a history of LHBT injury.

In this test, the patient is observed while forcing his or her feet into supination (inversion) in a standing position (Fig.
At the elbow joint, flexion, supination and pronation of forearm movements were studied.
