Why wear this elbow support?
Wearing this elbow support may be recommended if you suffer from epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) to help you get back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, badminton, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo). It is easy to put on and tighten, with a compression knit and airy fabric to keep you comfortable.
What is epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow)?
These two types of tendinitis occur when the tendons in the elbow become inflamed. For tennis elbow it is the tendon on top of the arm and for golfer's elbow it is the one underneath. People doing any sport can be affected (basketball, handball, rugby) but tendinitis is most common among people doing racket sports and golf, generally because they are training heavily, and the injury becomes aggravated by repeated impacts with the ball.
CHOOSING YOUR ELBOW SUPPORT
Measure your arm circumference, 5 cm below the inside of the elbow. Then match the measurement taken with the following size chart:
Size 1: 21.5 - 23,5 cm
Size 2: 23.5 - 26 cm
Size 3: 26 - 28 cm
Size 4: 28 - 30cm
