Title (EN) ELBOW BRACE FOR ATTENUATING TENNIS ELBOW
(FR) ATTELLE POUR COUDE ATTENUANT L'EPICONDYLITE DES JOUEURS DE TENNIS OU TENNIS-ELBOW
Abstract:
(EN) A brace (10) for preventing or attenuating the effects of tennis elbow utilizes a pair of shock absorbing elements (20, 22) that are placed over the arm over the lateral and medial epicondyle of the humerus bone. These shock absorbing elements (20, 22) provide a medium for absorbing a portion of the shock energy and vibration that can travel along the forearm and exit the elbow of a person during physical activity. The elbow brace also includes pressure transmitting elements (24, 26) which are designated to localize pressure directly on the tendon that extends from the extensor digitorum (36) muscle that is attached to the humerus. The other pressure transmitting element (26) can be placed in contact with the arm directly over the tendon of the triceps branchii which is attached to the olecranon of the ulna.
(FR) Une attelle (10) destinée à prévenir ou atténuer les effets de l'épicondylite des joueurs de tennis utilise une paire d'éléments absorbant les chocs (20, 22) placés sur le bras au-dessus de l'épicondyle ou de l'épitrochlée. Ces éléments amortisseurs de chocs (20, 22) constituent un milieu destiné à absorber une partie de l'énergie de chocs et des vibrations pouvant se déplacer le long de l'avant-bras et sortir du coude d'une personne lors d'une activité physique. L'attelle de coude comprend également des éléments (24, 26) transmettant la pression, lesquels sont conçus pour localiser la pression directement sur le tendon s'étendant à partir du muscle extenseur commun des doigts (36) attaché à l'humérus. On peut mettre en contact l'autre élément (26) transmettant la pression avec le bras directement sur le tendon du triceps brachial, lequel est attaché à l'olécrâne du cubitus.
