Thuasne Silistab Epi Elbow Support
If you've injured your elbow, it's integral that you stop performing exercises that put strain on the affected muscles and tendons. Such injuries can have you out of action for weeks on end, so it's important that you stabilise and compress the area to speed up healing. The Thuasne Silistab Epi Elbow Support is effective at treating and relieving medial or lateral epicondylitis and has a dimpled silicone insert to massage your skin and relieve pain.
Who Can Make Gains with the Epi Support?
Elbow injuries can be caused by a number of different sporting activities. For instance, overhead arm motions such as pitching or bowling the ball in baseball and cricket alike can cause elbow injuries, while golfers and tennis players often develop elbow conditions because of the repetitive motions they perform with excessive force. The Silistab Epi Support helps support and compress the area to help you recover from your injury.
Conditions like tennis or golfer's elbow often return if you've suffered from them in the past. Thuasne's Silistab Epi can be used even after you've recovered to help stabilise the elbow and protect recurrence of the condition.

Provides Optimal Comfort
Although most elbow supports can restrict you to such an extent that movement in the area is severely limited, the Silistab Epi Brace has been designed with comfort zones at the elbow crease. These help ensure you remain comfortable throughout use, even when you're bending your elbow. Its anatomical fit also maximises compression while keeping you comfortable.
Designed with an elastic knit, the Thuasne Epi Elbow Support provides a reinforced proprioceptive effect. This helps improve your balance and ability to sense movement in your joints. The brace also uses patented pull tabs so you can apply and remove it easily.
