Elbow pain can make everyday life frustrating and difficult, twinging and aching every time you try to pick something up. Whether it’s a fracture, tendinitis or nerve pain, wearing the right support can mean the difference between getting on with your day and long-term discomfort.
To assist with managing elbow pain, today we are shining the spotlight on the EpiTrain Elbow Brace and what sets it apart from the sleeves available at your local chemist.
Managing Elbow Pain with the EpiTrain Elbow Brace
What does the compression weave do?
Bauerfeind have been refining medical-grade compression for almost a century, perfecting each thread to get the best possible compression.
The EpiTrain uses a special flat knit weave that targets each individual muscle in the elbow with the ideal amount of pressure, providing a range of benefits:
Increased blood-flow. An increase in blood flow promotes healing and recovery in the muscles, and helps to provide strength in each movement.
Muscle stability. By minimising excess vibration of the muscle, the compressive weave cuts down fatigue in the muscles and helps isolate movement to prevent soreness the next day.
Ultra-breathable. The special cotton weave allows for moisture to be drawn from the surface of the skin, keeping the skin underneath cool and comfortable.
Have you heard of massage gel pads?
The EpiTrain has two specially shaped gel pads, each with their own insert. The pads themselves are made from viscoelastic gel, meaning that it moves with you so no matter the position your elbow is in.
The massaging inserts inside these pads contain special nodules that track the tendons on the inside and outside of your arm, helping to stimulate and soothe them.
The perfect fit
The EpiTrain demonstrates German engineering at its finest with the anatomical fit construction. The sleeve itself is shaped to the elbow, meaning that from forearm to bicep there’s consistent fit and support.
This anatomical fit flows through into the gel pads that sit around the elbow joint to protect the parts that are most sensitive. A soft weave on the inside of the elbow means that all day wear is nice and comfortable without chafing or irritation.
Why choose the EpiTrain elbow brace?
One last thing to note. Bauerfeind have put the EpiTrain through extensive testing, research and refinement.
Through clinical studies, the EpiTrain has been conclusively proven to treat elbow tendinitis and other injuries to great effect, shortening recovery time and reducing pain noticeably.
In its brand new iteration with improved weave and massage pads, the EpiTrain Elbow Brace is the best support you can get for your elbow.
