Aim: to detect the regularities of age variability of bones in the forearm at adult men. Material and Methods. By the method of a direct osteometry the greatest length and the circle of the middle diaphysis of radial and ulnar bones were determined. The thickness-length index reflecting massiveness of a bone was defined as a percentage of a circle of middle diaphysis to the greatest length of a bone. Results. Age features of the greatest length, the greatest circle of a diaphysis and the thickness-length index of bones in the forearm, and also correlation of the studied parameters with a body length were revealed. Conclusion. The greatest length of radial and ulnar bones changes with age slightly whereas the circle of the middle diaphysis of bones in the forearm significantly increases with age according to the statistics that affects the increase in an index of massiveness of bones.
