Fits well, adjustable pressure as needed for the amount of gripping. Does not slip off easily. 3 months later the item still works.

The product looked good, has a little pad where extra pressure can be applied to the tendon - nice feature. I really wanted to like this band because it looks nice too. The problem is that if you play tennis it will not stay on your arm. At first I though I had it too tight (i like it a little tight) so I loosened it. Well it still pops off with an aggressive hit like a hard serve or forehand. I don't think a replacement will be any different, I just think it's a bad design for tennis. The area where the Velcro is to secure the band is just too small to hold it in place. If you buy this band just try to pull the band loose from a horizontal direction, or a vertical direction. I believe you'll see there isn't much holding the band on. I'm an advanced player, but I still don't think it should pop off. I've had several other bands and they don't pop off. I have a simple Nike band, all black, not the features of this band, but it stays on my arm. I had another one with a little air pillow and beige strap... it work okay, I just don't like the look as well. Well, it's back to the Nike and air pillow. If this company makes a new version with more Velcro I will buy it. This one is being returned or trashed.

I was looking for a brace that wasn't as big and bulky as the braces sold in CVS. This brace is definitely a smaller brace but it's not as sportive. I use hammers and hand tools often and I like the CVS brace more than this brace. Also, the brace has a plastic flange that is supposed to prevent you from getting pinched or abraded by the buckle. This plastic flange is in itself uncomfortable. I wouldn't bother buying this product. The CVS brace is better.

Fine for spot support, though it did make the underside of my forearm itch like crazy. Glad others found relief with this. Every injury has a somewhat different genesis, of course. Didn't do much for what I thought was tennis elbow, though the Mueller Hg80 is a bit better quality than the drugstore Ace variety.For anyone experiencing elbow and shoulder pain, it might be good to also look into muscle/tendon trigger points as the culprit. Turned out, my "tennis elbow" was 2 areas of knotted trigger points further up under and around the shoulder blade, as tendons and muscles are a connected system. What finally gave me not just relief but healing was methods of muscle relaxation and kneading-massage techniques in "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook," using a Back Buddy ... and being more conscious of my posture when sitting at work. Took a few weeks but I was able to ditch the creams, braces, aspirin, and pain.

For tennis elbow - a strain of the tendon on the top "bump" of the elbow, this therapeutic aid works to help heal a very difficult injury. The support is simply a strap with a pressure pad stiched into it. It has a clip for tightening and velcro securement. The purpose is to put pressure on the tendon/muscle just in front of the tennis elbow pain area. Center the pad over the tendon/muscle involved and secure with the velcro strap. The pressure pad will take some pressure off the tendon insertion area on the bone allowing less stress for healing. Tendonitis heals very slowly, so plan on wearing this strap for several weeks or even months. The key is to not do anything that aggravates the tendonitis pain, as this reinjures the tendon and delays healing. I have found that warm packs twice a day (20-30 minutes per session) speeds healing by increasing circulation to the injured tendon. To apply the heat, take a cloth/towel and place over the elbow folded so that there is about an inch or so of fabric above the injured area. Now position the elbow under a water faucet and allow warm to hot water slowly dribble into the cloth fabric and onto the elbow area. The cloth tempers the water and holds the warmed water over the tendonitis area. The water must be warm to increast circulation. The skin should be red after 20-30 minutes of treatment time. Do this routine twice a day and wear the elbow brace between sessions and the tendonitis will resolve much faster. The tennis elbow strap is mostly comfortable to wear, even cinched up tight, stays in place without slipping, contains no latex, and is washable. It will last for years and does not snag clothing. My only complaint, and this is minor at bestis that the clip is a bit uncomfortable on the underside of the forearm. I am very pleased with this product over all. kone

Just got 2 of these braces today, so it's an early review. Having tendonitis in both elbows, the first thing I noticed when I put them on is that I felt relief right away. The second thing I noticed was that the stitching did not poke me. I had another brace (forget what brand) that worked well but I had to put tissue underneath it to keep the stitching and velcro from scratching my arm. Not sure if they would be good for working out or not (as some reviewers mentioned) but I bought them so I could work and lift small things, and I think they will be just fine. So far, so good :)
