EpiTrain PowerGuard protects the elbow from painful overextension during throwing and overhead movements. The support provides smooth cushioning during movement with an incorporated strap system. Its preset tension takes effect when the arm extends rapidly, triggering a counter-reaction in the forearm muscles to balance out the force and take the stress away from the joint.
The EpiTrain PowerGuard sports support makes the arm’s elasticity easier to control during repeated throwing and overhead movements and protects the elbow from overextension. This relieves the joint and ligaments and reduces the risk of getting injured (again) or developing chronic pain. The support gently cushions arm extension during movement with an incorporated strap system that uses the wearer’s own muscle strength. Tension is applied to the strap system and it is fixed in place on the bent arm with a BOA closure. The tension can be set precisely to the millimeter and released with ease. When the arm shoots forward quickly and powerfully, the strap system contracts, together with a strap around the forearm, which triggers a slight warning pressure on the inside of the arm. The muscles’ counter-reaction to balance out the force then cushions it and takes the stress away from the elbow. The compression exerted by the support over a large area also stabilizes the elbow, as well as activating the muscles and relieving pain during movement.
