- The elbow brace uses a pad to exert pressure on the affected lower arm muscles and thus relieves the strain on the tendon insertions of these muscles to the elbow.
The Push Sports Elbow Brace was developed to address strains at the insertion points of the extensor and flexor muscle tendons in the lower arm. These strains (commonly referred to as tennis or golfer's elbow) are caused by a (sudden) sharp strain, or prolonged strain, on the muscles involved. The elbow brace is easy to apply, adaptable to your individual needs and has specialized features to ensure it won't slide during movement and activity.
The elbow brace uses a pad to exert pressure on the affected lower arm muscles and thus relieves the strain on the tendon insertions of these muscles to the elbow. The effectiveness of this brace is a function of the viscoelastic material used in the pad, and a small elastic section on the strap. These features cause the pressure to increase gradually during flexion or extension of the muscles.
