Supination electrode placement, option one. The lateral epicondyle is marked with the X. The small negative electrode is placed very proximal. A large positive electrode is placed on the upper arm. Stimulation of this electrode configuration results in forearm supination, along with elbow extension, some wrist extension, and finger extension.

The supinated contraction would be graded as three out of five.
