Elbow Compression Sleeve Uses
The Elbow Helix Compression Sleeve is a breakthrough in compression supports. It was designed for relieving joint pain from elbow injuries such as Tennis Elbow or Golfer’s Elbow. This extremely comfortable elbow support provides firm, even compression to the elbow joint and the attached structures. This makes it an excellent sports support for Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis), Golfer’s Elbow (medial epicondylitis), and proximal forearm injuries.
The targeted Elbow Helix is shorter than the Full Elbow Helix. The Elbow Helix provides compression support right at the joint, making it a more comfortable fit for warmer weather or when injury and pain are specific to the elbow joint.
It is helpful to know which High Performance compression wear is best for you. Athletes who participate in contact sports choose the Elbow Helix for protection of the elbow; whereas, tennis and baseball players wear the Elbow Helix for injury prevention.
Body Helix uses the latest advances in fabric science to make straps, wraps, braces and tape obsolete. The Elbow Helix compression sleeve offers medical-grade compression that stays in position even while you serve, volley, throw, hit, punch, or lift.
The Elbow Helix utilises Form Fit Technology. The incredible stretch and elasticity of this compression sleeve means it fits comfortably over the elbow and allows for a complete bend of the joint. Athletes find that our supports do not “bunch up'” in the crease of the elbow and can be worn for hours without the discomfort caused by other braces and sleeves. The sleeve will not absorb excess water, bacteria, or odours, and it can be washed after every wear.
What is the difference in styles?
The small Elbow Helix is 6″ long, medium is 8″ and the large is 8.5″. Please see the Full Elbow Helix for comparison. The Full Elbow Helix is generally preferred by taller athletes and when compression of a larger area than just the elbow is desired.
A proper fit is Important
It is very important to measure your biceps 1-2 inches above the crease in the elbow (antecubital fossa) with a straight arm in order to get the proper fit. Please do not measure your forearm.
