Who Can Make Gains with the EpiTrain Elbow Support?
The EpiTrain is suitable for a range of elbow and arm conditions, ranging from relieving pain associated with arthritis, to helping you recover from surgery. Suitable uses include:
- Epicondylitis (e.g. tennis elbow, golfer's elbow)
- Tendon insertions pain
- Fasciae pain
- Muscle pain
- Post-operative and post-traumatic irritation
How Does the Bauerfeind EpiTrain Elbow Support Work?
The EpiTrain Support is ideal for any repetitive strain injuries of the elbow, as well as being used for rehabilitation post surgery, or to reduce the symptoms of arthritis. With conditions such as tennis elbow, the tissues are over-strained and become swollen and inflamed. EpiTrain massages the tissue during exercise and stimulates the metabolism, which can help the swelling go down quickly.
The two component pads on the device is designed to target pressure in key areas, while massage nubs offer targeted stimulation to intensify proprioception of the radial and ulnar muscles. This combination of compression and support allows the injury to recover with more speed.
Which Size Should I Choose?
The Bauerfeind EpiTrain Elbow Support is available in seven sizes. To decide which size is right for you, please measure the circumference of your forearm 12cm from the elbow, and then check the sizing chart below.
|Size ||Forearm Circumference (cm) |
|Size 0 ||21 - 23cm |
|Size 1 ||23 - 25cm |
|Size 2 ||25 - 27cm |
|Size 3 ||27 - 29cm |
|Size 4 ||29 - 31cm |
|Size 5 ||31 - 33cm |
