At Formedica, three materials are used in the manufacture of orthopedic supports: elastic, neoprene and wool.
The elastic support is used to create a slight compression in case of joint weakness, swelling or even edema. It therefore ensures comfort and support for long-term wear.
In the case of the wool used in the Arthri-Forme products, it is combined with elastic and nylon to provide greater support. It also helps retain body heat, which promotes blood circulation and thus brings comfort and relief from arthritis pain.
Neoprene meanwhile brings increased support for more intense activities. It supports muscles and ligaments weakened following a strain, sprain or muscle overexertion. Neoprene also provides better air circulation which reduces sweating and skin irritation.
The tennis & golf elbow brace provides uniform pressure and is used to decrease inflammation in acute pain. It can be worn continuously during daily activities, though it is not recommended to wear it overnight.
The tennis & golf elbow stabilizing support will focus more on short periods, for example during intense physical activities, such as golf and tennis. It relieves a specific point and can control the symptoms of tendinitis, or prevent its recurrence.
