Palpation of the pronator teres muscle

The subject holds his elbow in 90° flexion and the forearm in the neutral position between pronation and supination. Ask the subject to pronate
the forearm and resist the movement. Palpate with the other hand in the thick muscular mass just distal to the cubital fossa. A round and strong muscle can be felt running from the medial epicondyle to mid-radius. This is the pronator teres muscle.
