Why Do I Need an Adult Elbow Splint & Stabilizer?
This elbow splint helps prevent your elbow from flexion (bending), while still allowing some arm movement. It can be used for your right or left arm. With sizes ranging from small to large, this elbow stabilizer fits a variety of people, including children, teenagers, and adults.
Helps Restrain Your Elbow for a Variety of Reasons
The elbow brace can be used for many things - to prevent movement of an injured arm or prevent further damage to a surgery site. Some of the most common uses of this elbow support for treatment include:
Cleft Palate and IV Therapy
View our pediatric elbow stabilizer for toddler and babies. This elbow splint is ideal for when your child’s movements must be limited, such as when they have a cleft palate repair or for IV therapy.
Ulnar Nerve Entrapment
This brace can be used for ulnar nerve entrapment (cubital tunnel syndrome) and ulnar neuropathy treatment. When your ulnar nerve becomes compressed, irritated, or pinched, you might experience an aching pain or tingling sensation on the inside of your elbow. It is one of the main nerves in your arm so keeping it immobilized will help minimize your pain. For even more support, check out our cubital tunnel brace.
If you are experiencing pain because of a broken elbow, you may want to use this splint after a surgery or when the bones are at low risk of moving out of place and you just want to keep it still.
After surgery, your elbow may be unstable, weak and/or swollen—all scenarios where you could use support and immobilization. For that reason, this elbow splint can also be helpful post surgery.
Elbow Night Splint
This brace could also be used as an elbow nighttime splint. It will prevent painful movements while you are sleeping or resting and keep your arm in a comfortable position. Sleeping with your elbow bent can increase the pain you are experiencing. Using this brace will help you from bending your elbow too much.

We bought these elbow immobilizer to try and prevent my mother from scratching at her eyes after her surgery. They did not work at all She was able to easily pull them down no matter what we did. They did not help to restrict her movements at all. So, if you want them for such a purpose, look elsewhere

I am wearing this daytime brace for my cubital tunnel syndrome, which was agonizing before it began to heal from the firey nerve pain down the arm into 2 baby fingers--classic for this type injury. It came right on time for a fast delivery fee added (hey, it's been a Long 6 months of this injury!) and it's excellent for the price, considering I hope I never need it again. I got the medium size, as I am an average size woman with average everything for arms, legs.... and I did this because I was on the border of Small/Medium, and liked the idea of extra length in arm. I did not want it slipping around on my elbow, which of course, is only slightly able to bend, but only enough to avoid total bend (BAD for elbow). Word of advice: the inside is very synthetic material, and very hot after on for a short time. I took a washcloth sized piece of thin,100% cotton from my artist's stash, trimmed it to length of brace and double thickness, by folding in half, for the inside of brace, and it's far more comfortable. If this keeps the overall priced down, it's worth it. The velcro type tabs are easily adjustable. It is not sliding around, esp with cotton "stuffing" inside.
Not good, they are quite tight.
Before I got it, I had a makeshift Ace bandage brace. I needed help getting that one on. With your product I could put it on by myself.
I should have spent more money on a better design.
