pronation the act of assuming the prone position, or the state of being prone. Applied to the hand, the act of turning the palm posteriorly (or inferiorly when the forearm is flexed), performed by medial rotation of the forearm. Applied to the foot, a combination of eversion and abduction movements taking place in the tarsal and metatarsal joints and resulting in lowering of the medial margin of the foot, hence of the longitudinal arch.
