Features

Product benefits

  • Highly-elastic, anatomically formed, knitted two-way stretch support

  • The compressive effect improves resorption of oedema and effusions

  • Rapid reduction of swelling, with pain relief in the affected region


How does it work?/Mode of action

Provides relief of the irritated joint and improves blood flow to the soft tissue areas surrounding the joint by producing a constant compression and massaging action during patient movement.

Donning/fitting instructions

Grasp the elbow support at the top edge (label) and pull over the forearm. Bring the support up over the elbow until the integral comfort zone is positioned in the fold of the elbow. When correctly positioned, the elbow will fit correctly into the outer shaped part of the support.
