Description

The invention relates to an epicondylitis banda ge according to the preamble of claim 1.

From the German utility model 82 04 983 is a sol che known epicondylitis bandage, which essentially consists of a tubular section that the Un encloses the arm along its entire length, from one transverse and longitudinal elastic material, two Drawstrings arranged in the circumferential direction are provided are whose voltages are adjustable. A drawstring is under the crook of the arm, the second drawstring nearby of the wrist. Thanks to the continuously adjustable train can the tension correspond to the respective needs be set accordingly. By the pressure exerted the forearm muscle is stretched as a whole - it becomes longer - and thus relieves the painful area. In this known bandage, a heat accumulation is said to be quite know to be avoided. In the meantime, however, it has changed shows that heat is essential for treatment success.

A so-called "tennis arm" is egg painful irritation in the area of origin of the Un extensor tendons on the outside of the elbow, where the tendons are anchored to the bone. Unlike the Be drawing "tennis elbow" suggests, such occur  painful irritation not only in tennis games learn, but create a painful stimulus said, the number in an even greater scope for professional activities or household activities can be determined.

In tennis players, such irritant states occur when a tennis player has a wrong technique, d. H. too much Strength instead of momentum. Often there are also metal sleeves ger the cause of a so-called tennis elbow. You off sorb the vibrations less than traditional ones Wood or modern Corbon fiber rackets. In particular the one who strings his racket tough his arm out of great danger. Then the ball too can only be hit wrong a few times an hour this may be the cause of complaints. Changing too from slow Grandplatz to fast floors like concrete, Plastic, artificial turf or carpet promote the complaint the. The ball jumps differently, almost always faster. The ballistic curve becomes flatter and the ball is bad to calculate ter. This leads to hurried, un harmonic movements. Wrist and forearm muscles The errors must be cramped in a fraction of a second adhere to strike techniques.

The same can also be said, if ever someone in the job about certain force-demanding movements hastily and inharmoniously performing. This is particularly so then the case when a certain rhythm of time from outside ß is specified, especially in the case of tape or postcard cord work.

But also for women working in the household or in the office the so-called "tennis elbow" can occur. Iron, In such cases, knitting or typing can be done  be the cause.

In the acute state of irritation, lifting is already prepared a coffee cup of pain. In addition, the painful area sensitive to pressure.

For treatment u. a. different types of ointments volumes recommended. It is also a so-called epi condylitis brace that affects the arm in the Near the elbow joint essentially semi-ring-shaped spanned (DE-PS 26 35 426). Such a belt-like However, structures have the disadvantage that practically no heat Meeffekt is enabled and the pressure pads not ge can be loosened, otherwise they will slip the pressure pad would lead. However, it has proven to be proven to be advantageous after about 10 To relax minutes of activity to a certain extent, since the Muscles in a load because of the stronger through bleeding is known to swell and this through the curl sufficient amount of the drawstrings must be gen. Otherwise there is a rapid Fatigue and muscle weakness. Finally give in the previously known version, the pressure pads Pressure just a little more concentrated. The achievable ef this is effectively reduced.

For the reasons mentioned, the one in German Ge usage pattern 84 10 987 described (so-called) "Banda ge "not really satisfactory since it too consists of a belt with pressure plates. Furthermore the printing plates are padded and can print there do not pass on in the desired concentration.

The same applies to the epicondylitis bandage according to the German utility model 83 12 360. They too  consists practically only of a belt with pressure plates, so that a desired warming effect is not achieved is cash.

The last mentioned epicondylitis bandages are missing not only the desired secure hold of the printing plates even after loosening the tension strap, but it the therapeutically desired one is also missing Effect of heat, since only a very narrow strip Arm embraces.

The invention has for its object an epicondy to create litis bandage, both from medical Point of view as well as in terms of their practical application is of particular advantage.

This is done with the help of the characteristic features of claim 1.

Advantageous further developments result from the sub claims.

It is important that the pressure effect by ei sling around the arm with the help of plates is generated, which is assigned to the positions of the epicondyles are not. Belts and plates are fixed with an ela connected armband. The bracelet wraps part of the forearm, elbow and part of the Upper arm and is highly non-slip and guaranteed the medically correct position of tensioning straps Platelets even when the tensioning belt is not very tight mens. Another advantage is the thermal effect of the band age.  

The invention is described below with reference to the Drawing figure explained for example.

In the drawing figure, a hose section 10 made of elastic material, in particular knitted or circular knitted, can be seen, the shape of which is essentially adapted to the arm joint. The cunning chabschnitt 10 can be worked so that the existing in the circumferential direction elastic tension seen in the longitudinal direction from the forearm to the upper arm decreases continuously Lich. This has an advantageous effect on the bleeding.

The tube section 10 is designed so that it corresponds in its form to the anatomical conditions around the elbow joint. At the elbow joint zugeordne th location of the tube section 10 , a gusset 11 can be sewn in or the tube section in a continuous operation, for example in the circular knitting process, have received a slight bulge.

If the hose section 10 is not circular knitted, but is made from a flat web or from a flat knitted fabric, it will have a seam which should preferably run along the longitudinal line of the hose section 10 corresponding to the inside of the arm. At the epicondyles (radial radial profundus) speaking points of the tube section 10 are rela tively firm, substantially plate-shaped inserts 12 are provided, which in these places - if necessary. In a pocket - sewn onto the tube section 10 or otherwise there are attached. As a result, mechanical relief of the muscles at their starting points, namely the epicondyles, is never achieved. The consequence of this in turn is relaxation of the hand and finger extension muscles and consequently an improvement in the irritation of the periosteum. The insert 12 serving as a pressure plate is preferably flat and consists of an elastically deformable material. It is adapted to the radius of the forearm by the elastic hose section 10 and by the tensioning belt 13 . Understandably, the pressure of the plate is greatest in the middle and decreases continuously towards the edge area. The pressure is very specifically concentrated on the radial radial nerve, which is responsible for the perception of pain in the so-called "tennis elbow". The pressure leads to a calming and pain relief. In the case of hard-elastic printing plates in particular, the pressure is strongly concentrated in the middle. With flexible printing plates, however, the pressure is evenly distributed over a larger area. The pressure distribution can be individually selected based on the different hardness of the material.

As already mentioned above, the pressure on the forearm muscles on the epi lateral and medial condylar strain relief the tendon attachments (extensors and flexors) reached. The panels also provide additional damping the impact shock and vibrations from the racket on the tendon base. Painful pressure len on the edge area of the plates are avoided that the pressure is practically continuous towards the edge diminishes.

The circumferential tension can be set in this area via a tensioning belt 13 which at least partially engages over the two plate-shaped inserts 12 provided. In order to achieve an infinitely variable adjustment of the tension of the tensioning belt 13 , this is provided with a fastener known per se. It can be a strap or buckle closure, but also a so-called Velcro closure.

The tensioning belt 13 can also be guided twice, in which it is returned through an eyelet 14 or 14 a and from there in its starting direction. The fixation of the tensioning belt 13 then takes place with respect to the tensioning belt 13 itself, as is shown schematically in the drawing figure.

The epicondylitis bandage described above has proven itself extremely well in practice. This should also be due to the fact that through the elastic hose section 10 in conjunction with the plate-shaped inserts 12, mechanical relief of the muscles in their starting points, namely the epicondyles, it is sufficient, which results in relaxation of the hand and finger extension muscles. Another advantage is the additional heat effect of the bandage, especially in cases where a heat-insulating textile or other layer is additionally provided or an additional heat-insulating thread material has been incorporated into the fabric or knitted fabric.

The bandage described above can also be prophylactic used for work or sport-related movements that may trigger epicondylitis or have already had a first illness have leads. Especially after a first illness there is always a risk of relapse.  

The targeted pressure development, radial and / or ulnar, leads to an optimal pressure distribution in the endangered area. The elastic tube section 10 corresponds to the anatomical shape of the forearm and guarantees slip resistance, optimal fit and possibly also a continuous change in the circumferential forces over the length of the tube section 10 .

The circumferential section not detected by the tensioning belt 13 should be fitted with an elastic band 15 so that the bandage elastically adapts to the changing arm when bending and stretching the arm and the pressure of the plates does not become too great even with increasing arm circumference. The elastic band 15 also ensures a certain minimum tension in the circumferential direction if the user gradually loosens the tensioning strap 13 after a certain period of activity. The closure light enables an individual adjustment of the tension of the tensioning belt 13 , in particular when using a Velcro fastener 16 .

It should also be mentioned that the tube section 10 described above leads to an intensification of the vein pump in the entire forearm area, without impairing the arterial blood flow. The size of the plate-shaped inserts 12 can be adapted to the size of the arm to a certain extent, will be on average about 7.5 cm × 5.5 cm.
