Epi-Lock Elbow Support

September 11, 2008

This uniquely-designed tennis elbow strap is more effective and comfortable than conventional supports. Epi-Lock’s unique distal strap supports extensors that are deeply buried and harder to support near the elbow where tennis elbow straps are usually worn. Its two straps together give exceptional support and pain relief.

The non-elastic straps are worn comfortably snug. When muscular force is applied, the extensors automatically enlarge causing the straps to tighten. Because the straps are relatively narrow, they focus the binding force for maximum effectiveness. As the extensors relax, the straps return to their comfortably snug condition.

Epi-Lock Elbow Supports
are manufactured from DermaDry, an exclusive material that outperforms all conventional bracing materials. DermaDry combines the breathability and water-vapor transmission capabilities of open- cell sponge rubber with the durability, stretch and compression of neoprene.

This process allows perspiration to evaporate and is further enhanced by the KwikWick treatment of the soft polyester that coats the inside and outside of the braces.

DermaDry keeps just the right amount of soothing warmth in the soft muscle tissues, keeping them flexible while providing compression. A flame lamination process is used to secure the KwikWick treated polyester to the rubber, eliminating the need for industrial adhesives, a known cause of contact dermatitis.

Epitrain Elbow Support

July 12, 2007

The Epitrain elbow support is worn by many professional athletes and is Bauerfeind’s most popular elbow support. Knitted elbow support incorporating two anatomically contoured silicone inserts surrounding the medial and lateral elbow bones (epicondyles) and lying over the flexor and extensor muscles. The Epitrain contains silicone inserts that leave the elbow bones pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema. Promotes proprioception, thus heightening sensory awareness in the elbow for increased joint stabilization.

The Epitrain brace features graduated compression at the edges which prevents constriction of circulation. Lightweight, breathable knit will not retain heat and is completely machine washable.


The Epitrain Tennis Elbow Brace can be used to treat: Lateral Epicondylitis(tennis elbow) Medial Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow) Post elbow Athroscopy Elbow Strains or sprains Pre and Post-Operative elbow conditions Chronic swelling and edema Arthritis/osteoarthritis.

Whenever joint problems stop movement, the Epitrain active support helps to restore mobility. Under the product group Train (Epitrain), Bauerfeind offers anatomically knitted compression supports with Visco-elastic inserts. Activity is not restricted and actually the opposite occurs.

Train (Epitrain) active supports work with the body to exert a healing effect. The intermittent massage combined with the compression exerted by the specially knitted fabric helps stimulate circulation, enhance metabolism and thus accelerate recovery. Train active supports are available for all of the principal joints, thus ensuring the appropriate medical management of the corresponding part of the body. The breathable materials and quality workmanship are additional features that ensure maximum wearer comfort.


Size is determined by loosely measuring the circumference of the arm, with the arm slightly bent, at 4 3/4 inches below the lateral elbow bone.
