overview functional examination
The examiner stands next to the patient.
The patient holds his forearm in 90° of flexion and in supination.
The contralateral hand is placed on top of the patient's shoulder.
The other one is placed vertically under the patient's forearm and prevents the arm
from moving downwards .
Make sure the fixation is maximal in order not to allow any movement.
If necessary, in a very strong patient,
the examiner may place his own elbow onto his own upper thigh.
