EpiTrain® PowerGuard Elbow Support
Protects the elbow from overextension.
Bauerfeind's EpiTrain® PowerGuard helps reduce the risk of elbow hyperextension while throwing. The anatomically knitted support relieves stress on the elbow, providing targeted pain relief and reduces the risk of further injury.
The adjustable Boa® closure system integrated with a compression sleeve helps support and stabilize the joint and protect the UCL from potentially harmful overthrowing motions while maintaining ball force and accuracy. The compression covers a large area of the arm, which helps activate the muscles, improve joint awareness and relieve pain during movement.
The integrated Boa Closure System can be set precisely to the millimeter and released with ease. When the arm extends powerfully and rapidly, the strap system contracts and triggers a counter-reaction in the forearm muscles to balance out the force and take the stress away from the joint.
In competitive overhead throwing and pitching sports like baseball, the Ulnar Collateral Ligament is often exposed to injury due to overuse. The EpiTrain® PowerGuard can be worn not just by athletes that are susceptible to injury, but also those who have already sustained injury and want to further prevent elbow stress and those who have undergone surgery as part of the rehabilitation process.
