The Tennis Elbow Brace Epi by Push Med provides targeted compression to the tendons in the forearm and relieves the pain of a tennis or golfer's elbow (known as epicondylitis).
The elbow support brace places pressure directly onto the inflamed area to relieve tendon pain and promote healing. It is ideal for a number of common elbow conditions including tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow.
The Tennis Elbow Brace Epi by Push Med provides targeted support to the forearm and elbow to soothe pain and encourage healing. It is suitable for conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow where the muscle has become strained from overuse. The brace provides compression without restricting circulation for optimal support while allowing you to play tennis or golf during your recovery.
The support can also be used to treat general pain and tenderness in the surrounding area, helping you to ensure that your arm can be restored to its normal strength.
How does the Tennis Elbow Brace Epi work?
The pressure pad ensures that pressure is directed to the extensors (in case of tennis elbow) or the flexors (in case of golfer’s elbow) of the wrist. This relieves the tendon insertion of these muscles on the elbow. The pad consists of a skin-compatible viscoelastic polymer. A c-shaped shell ensures evenly distributed pressure around the arm and prevents the restriction of blood flow. The good anatomical fit and the pad material help the position of the brace to be maintained during movements. The brace can easily be fitted with one hand around the forearm.
1. Place around the arm with plastic loop on the top of your arm, 3cm (approximately 2 fingers) down from the elbow to allow complete bending to 90°
2. Ensure that the pad is in the correct position to exert pressure on the tendon
3. Adjust the Velcro strap to achieve the desired traction
