The Aircast Pneumatic Armband’s Aircell can be adjusted to compress tendons in the forearm. The resultant pressure reduces the force transmitted through the tendon, relieving the painful symptoms of bursitis, tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. A Vulkan Tennis Elbow Brace acts in the same way to prevent tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) during any sporting or work activities that involve a gripping force.
Activities that require gripping motions over time can result in a Repetative Strain Injury such as lateral epicondylitis that results in pain when performing twisiting movements such as turning a door handle. Wearing an Elbow Compression Strap will work to eliminate such pain by applying pressure and support to the forearm.
