Sports Elbow Support improves the movement of the elbow during longer sporting activities through gentle, beneficial compression and protects against overloading. The support surrounds the upper arm and forearm. Two anatomically contoured functional elements or “pads” protect the inside and outside of the elbow joint against pressure peaks. When the arm moves, the pads and the knitted fabric of the support massage the connective tissue and the muscles. This action stimulates circulation and metabolism. This stimulation over a large area triggers positive sensorimotor feedback: the stabilising muscles are activated more quickly, thus improving joint co-ordination in the long term. This provides effective protection against stress and injury risks. Irritation and overloading pain subside more quickly, preventing the adoption of damaging relief postures.
The knitted fabric of the Sports Elbow Support is similar to a fine net made of an airy mesh and consists of a breathable, hard-wearing material. This makes the support especially lightweight, comfortable to wear, and practical for sports. Its anatomic contouring and adhesive zones guarantee a secure fit and maximum freedom of movement.
