Vulkan AirXtend Elbow Support
Vulkan® AirXtend supports help to retain heat at the site of the injury, accelerating the healing process by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the damaged tissues. Adjustable supports provide even compression and maintains full range of movement for weak or injured elbows. The supports feature a combination of Airprene neoprene and Coolmax® fabric to provide optimal comfort.
Airprene is a closed cell synthetic rubber with perforations that provides support and compression. The perforations in the material allow increased ventilation to reduce skin irritation and improve comfort. This allows the support to be worn for prolonged periods whilst keeping skin dry and comfortable. The Coolmax® fabric lining moves perspiration away from the body, and through the fabric, where it can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and more comfortable.
- Align elbow at centre of support
- Fasten the bottom tension strap below elbow
- Fasten the top tension strap above elbow ensuring the support is firm but comfortable
- Ensure that the support is not uncomfortably tight and does not restrict blood flow
Hazards and Cautions
Do not wear if warming or heat-generating liniments, ointments, or creams have been applied. Should an irritation or rash develop, discontinue use immediately and seek medical advice. If your injury is severe or does not improve within three to four days seek medical advice.
