Elbow compression support with pad
Pain in the elbow can have many causes: In tennis elbow (Epicondylopathia humeri radialis), golfer’s elbow (Epicondylopathia humeri ulnaris) or pain caused by arthrosis / arthritis, the Epicomed E+motion elbow support helps to bring relief with its compressive fabric.
The integrated silicone quartz pads with 3D profile create a beneficial massage effect as you move. They also stimulate the circulation of the tissue. This means that swelling and oedemas can be relieved more efficiently and the healing process promoted. The pressure on irritated tendons can be individually adjusted with the detachable strap. Alongside the tried and trusted medical effect, the Epicomed E+motion scores extra points with its exclusive features in a sporty look. The breathable fabric made from active fibre and merino fibre support the thermo-regulation in both summer and winter, adapting perfectly to movement and also giving the joint extra stability for high stress during sport, at work or in everyday life. The extra-large comfort zone makes the support particularly comfortable to wear. The wide, flexible cuff with integrated silicone thread ensures it sits firmly during all activities.
Epicomed causes a massage effect, which supports perfusion, by interacting with compressive knitted fabric and the two integrated silicon inlays. This effect furthers the decline in swellings and bruises. Irritation and pain are relieved. In addition, the lashing strap can be individually adjusted for the level of stress at work or during sport. This helps to reduce excessive stress on the musculature and tendons. Supports cause the greatest effect during physical exercise. In principal, the support can be worn all day. However, this depends on how comfortable the support is to wear. You should avoid bending your arm tight for a long period. The support should be taken off for longer breaks (e.g. when sleeping).
To make putting Epicomed on easier, fold down the upper fastening edge.
Pull the bandage over the elbow so that the crease of the elbow sits in the middle of the knitted comfort zone and the seam on the back side runs over the middle of the elbow bone at the back of the arm. Then roll the upper part of the bandage back up.
The position of the bandage is correct when the inner and outer bone (epicondyles) can be felt in the gaps in the silicone inserts.
The strap enables the pressure to be regulated for each individual, depending on what their body requires (tightening, loosening). If required, the strap can also easily be removed whilst the device is being worn.
Please take care that trained staff instruct you when putting on the support for the first time.
If you suffer excessive pain or discomfort during wear, please take off the product immediately and contact your doctor or specialized shop. The support is also suitable for use in water. After use, please rinse out the product thoroughly.
