Product benefits

How does it work?/Mode of action

During longer periods of rest (e.g. when
sleeping) you should take the medi Epibrace
off.

Donning/fitting instructions

Attach the pad within the marked frame
depending on the indication. For lateral
epicondylitis (tennis elbow) onto the outer
area, for medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)
onto the inner area. For the right arm
the tip of the pad faces upwards, for the left arm the tip of the pad faces downwards. When wearing the support the tip of the pad should always point towards the hand.
Adjust the circumference to be as large as possible and fix the strap to the support. Pull the support up over the affected forearm, always with the fastener facing outwards. In order to find the correct position for the pad on your forearm pull your clenched fist upwards if you have lateral epicondylitis, or downwards if you have medial epicondylitis.

Place the pad on the tense muscles (radialis = outside of the arm [lateral]), ulnaris = inside of the arm [medial] so that the edge of the support is about 5 cm from your elbow joint.
Lay your forearm on a firm surface and tighten the strap to the number that corresponds to the circumference of your arm, e.g., up to “6” for a forearm circumference of 29 cm. The support should now fit your arm firmly without slipping or causing constriction. You can adjust the pressure to maintain your own personal comfort.
The product must always be used on the instructions of a doctor and put on for the first time under the supervision of trained professional staff, e.g. an orthopaedic technician. Please ask your doctor if you are using other products at the same time.
