I suffer with tennis elbow/tendinitis off and on. I work out a lot lifting weights and doing strength training and if I push myself too quickly, I tend to flare up my tennis elbow. I was in search of a good brace that I could use to workout in and give me some extra support as I healed.
I find the brace runs small. It's very snug on my arm and I have to really pull it on and tug to get it off. I find it pulls on the sorest spot on my arm when I try to take it off, which counters the effects of wearing it. Also if I wear it for more than an hour or two I find it starts to really irritate the inside of my elbow. The seams are not covered inside and rub and irritate the inside of my elbow. I also can't work out when wearing this. I find it limits my range of motion too much by being too bulky in the join area and makes doing things like bicep curls, push ups, tricep dips, etc...to difficult. I'm going to have to switch to a tennis elbow strap I believe.
Besides the above issues it does give good support. The tightness is effective, although it's a bit too much. The strap is adjustable so you can get just the right area and the right pressure for yourself.
Overall, this is an okay brace, but it could be improved, even if they just fixed the seams inside to make it more comfortable.
