Function of the Radius Bone?

Answer

The radius bone is also sometimes known as the radial bone. This is one of the two large bones found in the forearm. The other is called the ulna, which is longer. The main function of the radius bone is to contribute to the movement of the wrist joint. This bone is called radius because the bone acts like a radius of a circle as it rotates around the ulna bone and the area where the radius joins with bones of the hand.
