The Groovi-Elbow cuff is a Counterforce brace for the targeted application of pressure to relieve tensile loading on the tendons above the cuff, on either the outside (Tennis elbow) or inside (Golfer’s elbow) of the elbow where the tendons attach to the lateral and medial epicondyles of the elbow respectively.
By applying the pressure from the Counterforce brace distal (below) the tendinopathy, the amount of Load or Force on the damaged tendon is reduced during wrist activities (eg shaking hands, opening a jar, playing squash etc). In this way, the damaged tendon is allowed to rest to accelerate recovery, and reduce or prevent further microtrauma to the elbow tendon.
The Groovi-Elbow cuff is made from neoprene and has a loop-lock closure. It has a high density tear-shaped pad which is used to apply compression to either the wrist extensor or flexor muscle mass, depending on its placement.
