Actimove Arthritis Care Compression Elbow Support
Retaining body heat and providing light compression, the Actimove Arthritis Care Compression Elbow Support is designed to relieve the pain and swelling associated with arthritis of the elbow. This product includes unique ceramic fibres and compressive material to warm the elbow, whilst also improving circulation and mobility.
Please note that this elbow brace is ambidextrous, meaning it can be used on either the left or right hand.
Who Can Use the Actimove Arthritis Brace?
The Actimove Arthritis Elbow Support is designed to provide compression and warmth, making it versatile enough to improve most forms of elbow pain. In particular, this brace is suited to:
- Repetitive strain disorders
- Use while reintroducing activity after injury
Will This Elbow Brace Relieve Pain?
Yes, this elbow support is designed to relieve pain in two ways:
- Heat Retention: Unique ceramic fibres reflect body heat back toward the elbow, soothing the area and increasing blood flow
- Compression: The brace will provide light compression to the elbow, helping to increase circulation, promote healing and manage pain
Which Size Should I Choose?
The Actimove Compression Elbow Brace is available in four sizes. To determine the correct size for you, please measure the circumference of your elbow as shown in the diagram, and refer to the table below. If you fall on a sizing boundary, we recommend choosing the larger size of the two.
|Size ||Elbow Circumference |
|Small ||19 - 23cm (7.5 - 9") |
|Medium ||23 - 26cm (9 - 10.25") |
|Large ||26 - 29cm (10.25 - 11.5") |
|Extra Large ||29 - 32.5cm (11.5 - 12.75") |
How Comfortable Is the Actimove Compression Support?
As this brace is designed to be worn for long hours of the day, it is made with irritation-free materials and breathable fabric. Completely latex-free, this brace is perforated to make it comfortable whether you're sitting at a computer or taking part in sports.
How Do Ceramic Fibres Increase Heat Retention?
Aside from the compression this brace provides, its main benefit comes through the heat-retaining ceramic fibres designed to trap the body's heat. As is shown in the diagram below, ceramic fibres work to target Far Infrared Radiation to the elbow, which helps to improve mobility, promote blood flow and relieve pain. This soothing warmth effect allows the brace to provide a greater pain-relieving effect when compared to braces that are made with compressive fibres alone.
Can My Patient Play Sports with the Actimove Compression Arthritis Brace?
Yes, this brace allows full movement of the elbow, making it suitable for use during sports. The materials used are lightweight, breathable and irritation-free, allowing users to wear the brace for hours of activity without fear of chafing.
How Do I Apply the Actimove Compression Elbow Sleeve?
As there are no straps or adjustments to worry about, you can simply slide the sleeve onto your elbow and enjoy compressive pain reduction immediately. There is a smooth motion-comfort zone over the outside of the elbow, and once this area is over your elbow, you'll instantly feel that the support is where it should be. The diagram below shows proper application procedure.
Does This Brace Contain Latex?
No, this brace is made with ceramic and compressive fibres which are completely latex-free. As latex is often associated with allergic reactions and skin irritation, the materials used make this arthritis brace particularly suitable for those with sensitive skin.
