One pair consists of biarticulate muscles (from shoulder to forearm), while the other two, respectively, actuate the shoulder or elbow joint (monoarticular shoulder flexors, monoarticular shoulder extensors, monoarticular elbow flexors, monoarticular elbow extensors, biarticular flexors, and biarticular extensors).
DISCUSSION: The distal radio ulnar joint is the distal articulation of the biarticulate rotational arrangement of the forearm where the ulna is fixed segment and the radius rotates around it in supination and pronation.
