3. Pronator square, proniruet forearm.

Muscles of the forearm posterior group has two layers - superficial and deep. Deep layer belonging to the rear group includes:

1. Arch support that is placed on the muscle surface and Spinneret forearm.

2. Long muscle which moves the finger brush large and full brush.

3. The short extensor of the big finger on the hand attached to the base of the proximal phalanx of the thumb. He and finger great on the brush removes, and extends the proximal phalanx.

3. The extensor digitorum is a muscle belly, passing first into four tendons, which in turn transformirovalsya in stretching the tendon fixed to the base of the distal phalanx and middle the II-V fingers. The function of the extension and the fingers and hand.

4. The extensor of the little finger, attached to the base of middle and distal phalanges on the fifth toe. It extends the little finger.

5. Extensor muscle of wrist, ulnar recorded at the beginning of the fifth metacarpal. He brush extends and leads her. Thanks to all of the above muscles, and possible movement in the joints of the wrist and elbow, as well as in the joints of the fingers.
