When it comes to pain in the elbow, normally tendonitis or RSI, most of us can't afford to take the time off work to let the joint recover. Finding a good elbow sleeve is often tricky, with normal ones at the chemist getting too sweaty and uncomfortable, or losing any compression within a week or two, especially for those in more physical jobs.
Bauerfeind have a range of elbow sleeves that are perfect for virtually any problem with the joint, whether it's tennis elbow, nerve pain, muscle fatigue or an old fracture.
What's the difference between a sleeve and a brace?
While there's no clearly defined difference, sleeves generally refer to a more simple support that uses compression and gel but no rigid components. Braces tend to have moving parts or rigid components suited to more serious issues.
Will these stop my elbow getting injured?
The only thing that can 100% protect your elbow is laying perfectly still all the time. Even when walking down the hallway at home, all it takes is a slip to fall and land on the elbow. While these sleeves can't protect it from everything, they keep the elbow muscles strong and firm, reducing fatigue, stress and other factors that lead to the more common injuries like tendonitis, fracture and impact.
Can I wear these in the water?
All our elbow support are perfect for wear in any situation, whether it's the surf, the bush or the workplace. Durable and easy to care for, you can focus on your movement instead of your injury.
How do I take care of these products?
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
What is the warranty for these products?
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
How do I know they'll fit?
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
