Elbow brace and / or elbow bandages are indicated for common elbow disorders such as tennis elbow.
The indication "Tennis elbow" concerns an overload injury of the adhesion of the wrist extenders on the outside of the elbow. Most complaints occur when the backhand is hit, indicating the pain on the outside of the elbow. Many tennis players use an elbow brace, in which roughly three types can be distinguished. 1. An elbow bandage
2. A "counterforce brace"
3. A medical elbow brace limiting the maximum stretch
The elastic elbow bandage keeps the elbow warm and feels comfortable, but does not provide mechanical support.
