    4. Position the product so that the hinges are on either side of the elbow.
    5. Adjust X-Cross fastener to appropriate tightness to prevent hyperextension.

  • Wear directly against the skin. Do not use heat creams inside the support
  • What is elbow hyperextension

    The largest joint in the elbow is called the humero-ulnar joint. This joint is responsible for the flexion and extension of the elbow. Surrounding this joint is a range of ligaments which prevent the elbow joint from over stretching when the arm is fully straightened. Hyperextension of the elbow occurs when the elbow joint is extended beyond its normal physiological range of motion. Pain may vary from a dull ache around the elbow region to a sharp pain during joint movement. Swelling may also occur in severe cases.

    XS was too big so had to return August 10, 2016
    Reviewer: Sue from North Narrabeen, NSW Australia  
    Sadly, this product in XS was still too big for my daughter's elbow so I returned it.  Happily, product arrived quickly and the return process was quick and easy too.  Would recommend this merchant and would purchase again.  Four stars because of great customer service.
