Radius (radial bone) - The shorter of the two long bones of the forearm, extending from the elbow to the wrist; it is the bone on the thumb side of the arm.

Radius (radial bone) - The shorter of the two long bones of the forearm, extending from the elbow to the wrist; it is the bone on the thumb side of the arm.

The radius connects to many muscles, such as  the biceps, supinator, flexor digitorum superficialis, flexor pollicis longus muscles, extensor ossis metacarpi pollicis, extensor primi internodii pollicis and the pronator teres muscles   Furthermore, the radius is found on each arm thus contributing a total of two bones to the human body skeleton. http://www.learnbones.com/arm-bones-anatomy/

Like the humerus, the radius’ primary function includes motion of the arm and support of the arm. http://www.learnbones.com/arm-bones-anatomy/

Waldorf ~ Movement ~ Copper rod exercises can serve the developmental needs of grade school children…first through eighth grade (and beyond):  • Physiology that supports writing and reading - radius and ulna  • Direction, rhythm and sequencing - related to math  • Proprioception and balance - one of the “Multiple Intelligences”  • Working with anticipation; social skills  (group and individual excercises, games & verses)
