    Abstract The two bones of the forearm, the radius and the ulna, have been shown to bear different proportions of the overall forearm load at the wrist and the elbow. This biomechanical data suggests load transfer between the bones occurs through the soft tissues of the forearm. Load transfer from radius to ulna through passive soft tissues such as the interosseous ligament (IOL) has been experimentally measured. Ex vivo studies of the forearm, however, cannot account for the effect of internal loads generated by the muscles and, in some cases, external forces acting directly on the forearm bones. The objective of… More >
