    • Can this be worn on the attacking/spiking hand in volleyball without limiting movement and performance?
    • Thank you for contacting Better Braces. You should be able to wear thsi brace for volleyball without restricting performance. It is importnat to note the brace is designed to limit hyperextension so it may feel different as you are getting used to wearing the brace. As well the brace has hinges on both sides that support the elbow joint, and is designed to restrict movement that would cause extra stress on that joint.
  • Shayan at 9/25/2016 9:18 PM
    • I sprained my elbow ligaments and tendons 2 years ago. My doctor told me that my elbows hyperextend (more than 180 degrees) and that I should always be careful not to fully extend my elbow when lifting as I can damage it. Will this product help me prevent injuries when playing Volleyball (serving/spiking)? Is this one better than DONJOY
      ELBOW GUARD for the purpose I described?
    • Thank you for contacting Better Braces. The Bionic Elbow has metal hinges to help prevent hyperextension as well as the adjustable criss cross strapping to help reinforce the hinges. The Don Joy Elbow Guard works the same way, the only difference is that you can access the hinges and additional ROM stops can be inserted by a clinician or local representative if you needed more restrictions.
  • Stephen at 9/17/2016 1:28 PM
    • Does this brace have a right or left arm option ?? Or is does it work on both elbows?
    • The brace has aluminum hinges on both sides of the elbow and is designed to be worn on either the right or the left arm.
  • DARYL at 9/15/2016 2:24 PM
    • I need a XXL for the brace. Mid Bicep is 17 inches. Do you make a XXL?
    • Thank you for contacting Better Braces. We do not make the Bionic Elbow in a 2XL but we do have that size in the elbow guard that functions the same as it has the hinges and criss cross strapping. The difference is that it has teh ability to add additional stops to assist in restricting motion. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-elbow-guard

  • SAC at 8/19/2016 9:53 PM
    • My 15 year old daughter has a significant ulnar ligament tear. She needs a brace for dancing. Her mid biceps measurement is only 9 inches. Some of the comments seem to suggest this brace runs smaller than the size chart states. Any chance a small would fit her? Or suggestions for a similar brace in a child's size? Thanks
    • Unfortunately the Bionic Elbow Brace is not made in a smaller size and the manufacturer doesn't make pediatric sizes of elbow immobilizers. If you'd like to try the small size of the Bionic you will have a 60 day return window to send the brace back in the case that it is too large.

My bicep measurement was 10.5 so I bought the small I can't get it to slide up my arm enough to get the brackets to be centered on the elbow as it shows in your instructions. I took it with me to PT and he couldn't get it to move up enough on my arm. What do I do. The upper portion is loose and the wrist feels like it's cutting off my circulation.

  • Brad at 3/15/2016 5:35 PM
    • I recently broke my elbow and its fully healed but the only problem is that it is now shaped differently than a normal elbow. I ordered the bionic elbow but the metal hinges on the side cause pain and discomfort to the recovering elbow. Should I return the bionic elbow and get a new product or find another solution?
    • this depends on what you need the brace for. If you need it to prevent a motion or provide support while doing something active you may need to what a bit to use it until the sorness is gone. If you need something for compression maybe a sleeve such as the Trizone elbow would be better right now.

    • I dislocated my elbow mountain biking and fractured my radial head. I had surgery and have slowly been getting my range of motion back. I'm at the stage where I want to start riding again. I have already done so but am concerned about re dislocating. While this brace offer the protection I need? Will it offer any more protection than the trizone brace in this regard? I like that one because it's lighter and sleeker.
      Can I twist my forearm wearing this brace supination/pronation?
      How breathable is this brace? Does it get excessively hot?
    • Sam the Trizone will not be enough support for your elbow. The bionic elbow is neoprene so it will be a warmer brace but will provide the better support for the elbow.
  • MissRubySFO at 9/3/2015 10:50 AM
    • I do not see how to measure the arm for this product. My bicep is a 15 & my forearm is an 11. I usually order braces a bit snug for the elbow ... not too snug ... but they get sloppy after use. :( What would you recommend, please? Thank you! Have a groovy, pain free day!
