The brachioradialis is located at the upper outer region of the forearm. This muscle's name was coined from "brachio," meaning the arm, and "radialis," referring to the radius bone of the forearm.
This muscle acts to turn the forearms and palms upward (supination) as well as downward (pronation). It also assists the biceps brachii in flexing the arm at the elbow joint.
