The radioulnar joints can be found in the forearm, one proximally and one distally, functioning as a pair. They serve to rotate the forearm and hand with assistance from the interosseous membrane which also has an important role in the transmission of forces throughout the upper limb.
This online learning course is designed to aid your understanding of the anatomy of the radioulnar joints in conjunction with how they function. On the next page you will find the objectives of the course, breaking the topic down into subsections. Work through achieving these objectives in order by clicking on them, reading the information and completing the exercises as they are presented to you. Each of the information sections within the objectives are titled as a question which you should be able to answer to yourself after having read the content. Some exercises are activities designed to use skills such as problem solving, and others are quizzes of varying styles but each will come with their own instructions. These will allow you to test your knowledge more definitively as you get instant feedback. Active participation is required throughout the course which may involve you having to draw, print out a worksheet or perform some simple arm movements so all you should need is a pen and some paper (a printer isn't completely necessary, the worksheets are visible onscreen and fairly simple to reproduce). At each stage you will be directed to exactly where to find the answers but do try to work through the exercises to the best of your ability before checking as this will boost your knowledge and memory of the topic.
You can take a break at any point by clicking 'take a break' in the top right corner, returning to complete the course at a later time but try to cover each section at some stage as this will provide you with the fullest understanding of the functional anatomy of the radioulnar joints.
Once you have begun working through an objective, you can navigate through the pages by clicking next at the bottom of each page or by using the arrows in the top right corner which will also allow you to return to a previous page. If you wish to return to the list of objectives whilst in the middle of working through an objective, simply click the house icon in the top left corner.
Check your progress in the top right corner of the home page (where the list of objectives are) and only once you have reached 100% click 'submit results'. Important: only do this once you are sure you are finished otherwise you will lose your progress.
