The BORT Stabilo® epicondylitis orthosis is designed for ‘tennis/golf elbow’, which occurs as a result of overexertion and irritates the tendons. Wearing an epicondylitis orthosis about 5 cm below the elbow joint provides relief in that area. This is achieved as a result of compression of the muscles of the arm, which, however, does not restrict blood circulation.
CHOOSING THE SIZE
|Size||Arm circumference (5cm below the elbow)|
|1||22 – 23 cm|
|2||24 – 25 cm|
|3||26 – 27 cm|
|4||28 – 30 cm|
|5||31 – 34 cm|
How to use:
Place the epicondylitis orthosis externally so that the wider part of the orthosis is on top of the lower arm, facing medially (toward the center of the body). A properly fitted epicondylitis orthosis relieves the tendons of the extensor muscles on the outside of the elbow and the tendons of the flexor muscles on the inside of the elbow. Epicondylitis orthosis should only be worn during manual activities. It should not be taken as a rest splint.
Epicondylitis, chronic or recurrent epicondylopathy, tendinopathy, overuse, so to speak tennis/golf elbow.
Peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD), impaired lymphatic drainage and indistinct soft tissue swelling away from applied support, loss of sensation, circulatory problems and skin rash in the treated body area.
