For use immediately after surgery to protect and immobilise the elbow joint. In the immediate post injury or post surgical period, the brace may be used to comfortably immobilise the elbow due to the effectiveness of the aircell strapping systems. For static stretch, the control knob is set to the desired degree of flexion/extension. Once the arm muscles have stretched to the designated degree, the muscles can relax minimising the inflammatory response that can occur in dynamic stretching. In addition, the control knob can be unlocked allowing for free range-of-motion (ROM). This unique feature enables the patient to have the benefits of stability and protection while promoting elbow movement to prevent or treat contractures.
