    • I broke the ulna in my left arm and dislocated my elbow 4 years ago. On 6/17/16 (2 mths ago) I feel again this time breaking the radius in the same left arm at the elbow causing a compound fracture that has since been repaired. I've been in a post-op brace and am looking for something more comfortable to start rehab in. Is this a good option? What are the washing instructions? Thanks

    • I had a complete distal bicep rupture to my right arm less than a month ago. Had a endo-button used to reattach the bicep. I had it measured during rehab and its down to 17". My left arm is at 191/2".

      Do you have any larger sizes?
      Will I eventually be able to not use it during weight lifting etc?

  • Shane W at 5/11/2016 1:21 PM
    • Is the mid-bicep measurement to be taken with the elbow at full elbow flexion, 90 degrees of elbow flexion or at full elbow extension?

    • The measurment of the bicep should be taken while the elbow is in a realaxed position
  • Jordyn at 5/4/2016 7:51 PM
    • I have a chronic shoulder injury that does not allow for external rotation. When I do activities where my arm is extended away from my body (such as riding a bike), this puts a lot of lateral strain on my elbow joint. Would this brace be light weight enough to help with the lateral strain without inhibiting motion or causing extra fatigue in my already weak shoulder?
    • Yes the brace has hinges on both side of the elbow to provide that support.
  • Matt at 5/4/2016 7:19 AM
    • Last September I had a complete rupture of my UCL in my left arm. I did not have surgery and took physical therapy instead and let it heal on my own as the surgeon advised me it wouldn't be smart to get the Tommy John surgery due to it not being my dominant arm. I need a good brace for the gym & lifting weights. I have been using a basic brace but need more support ... Will this brace be he best option? Thanks
    • Yes the Bionic Elbow Brace is a hinged elbow support that will provide support for that injury

    • I am a softball catcher suffering from Ulnar Neuritis in my right elbow (my throwing arm) my nerve often dislocates and slides around. I was wondering if this brace would help prevent my nerve from sliding and would allow me to get back out on the field. Thanks!
    • I would suggest the Trizone Elbow support for you as you will not be able to throw the ball with the Bionic Elbow
  • Randy at 4/10/2016 3:18 AM
    • I fractured my left radial head in my elbow in 3 peices. Had surgery and 4 screws were inserted to repair it. Majior damage also to the cartliage , tennons and soft tissue affecting forarm and wrist.
      It has been 5 weeks post surgery. I am not able to straighten out the arm all the way. Iam a prison officer. When i return to work, chances are fair that i will get in a altercation with a prisoner.
      Im worried my arm will be forced straight beyond its current stopping point, resulting in torn tennons etc.
      Would the Bionic Support Brace be the choice of protection for my circumstance?
      If not, what would you reccomend?
      Thank you.
    • Yes the Bionic Elbow has hinges on both sides of the elbow joint and will protect the elbow. There are also straps that criss-cross on the elbow to restrict elbow extension which should help you with having the elbow forced

    • My son is recovering from MCL/UCL tear in his non-throwing arm. Had surgery to re-attach (not Tommy John). Looking for added support/protection for HS Football (QB/LB) & Baseball (catcher).
    • The Bionic elbow would offer him the best protection for his elbow after that surgery. This brace has bilateral hinges to provide medial and lateral support to the elbow, and cross-straps to prevent extension.

    • In December of 2015 I had surgery on my right elbow. I had an ulnar nerve transposition. I am currently having pain and issues with the lateral part of my elbow. I plan on playing softball this spring and was wondering if this brace will help with the pain I have and will it also protect the medial part of my elbow that still has the scar and protect it from injury.
    • The Bionic Elbow will provide support on the medial and lateral side with hinges and provide compression. The pressure of the hinges could cause pain over your scar, you might want to go with something without the hinges like the Trizone Elbow support. It will provide compression and mile elbow support.
  • Mandy at 3/18/2016 9:18 AM
    • My son is 11 and needs a hinged brace. Do you have a brace like this that is offered in a smaller size?
    • The smallest size the Bionic Elbow is available in is a Small. It should fit an 11yr. old, depending on the size of their bicep. Please see the Size Chart to determine if the small will work.
  • Ben at 3/16/2016 7:24 PM
    • My son had prp treatment for partial ucl tear. He's begun weight training again will this brace allow full extension and support the ucl?
    • Yes, the Bionic Elbow will allow for full range of motion or you can utilize the cross-straps to limit extension. It also has 2 metal uprights that will support the medial and lateral ligaments of the elbow.

  • Emily at 1/28/2016 8:33 AM
    • Is this brace's hinges adjustable; can the hinged motion be limited between 30-70 degrees.
    • No, the Bionic Elbow hinge is not adjustable. It will allow for full range of motion, and the cross-straps can be used to prevent extension.

    • I'm post repair of a torn biceps tendon and am wondering if the bionic elbow brace gives enough hyperextension support to help protect the elbow, biceps, and tendon during bull riding.
    • The Bionic Elbow prevents elbow hyperextension by two cross straps in the front of the brace, the hinge is also designed to not allow for hyperextension of the elbow.

    • I had surgery in February of 2015 on my left Ulnar nerve which consisted of some peripheral nerve reconstruction and reposition. I try to be a pretty active weight lifter but, during the on going pt, I still continue to issues with joint pain and to me it feels as if I have a very unstable elbow. I was hoping your staff could point me in the right direction because the tennis elbow relief strap I've tried did little to nothing it seems except annoy me. The tommy coppers sleeve I've used, also seem to do little to nothing. Thank you for your time.

    • The Bionic Elbow is a hinged elbow support so it is going to offer more support to the elbow than the previous braces you have tried. The hinges will give both medial and lateral elbow support.

    • I dislocated my elbow about a month ago and I was given 4 more weeks until eligible to wrestle. Would this brace speed up my recovery time? And also protect my elbow enough so it doesn't get reinjured?

    • I have your trizone elbow brace and love it! I purchased a size Large and it is very comfortable. I hust purchased a Bionice elbow brace and can barely force it on my arm it is also a large. is it supposed to be this tight, the fit chart says it should be the same as the trizone. Will it loosen up, I even checked the size inside to make sure it is a large. I am perplexed to say the least.

      The neoprene may fit a bit more snug than the material that makes up the Trizone. If the brace is uncomfortably tight I would return it and get the X-Large

    torn bicept and tendon

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I am a professional football player (offensive lineman) and I tore my bicept and tendon in my right dominate arm. I was told that football would be out of the question and I would probably lose most of my movement and strength. I'm now back playing better then ever after surgery and I have to thank a lot of that to this elbow brace by donjoy performance! The fit is amazing, it stays where it should through out the game it almost feels like I have nothing on! The protection I feel with this when I take or give a hit is impeccable. Well worth your time and money to buy this brace! I also have donjoy knee braces and donjoy has always fit and made me get back in the game with comfort and piece of mind!
    Pros: Fit Durability Colour Sizing Material Protection (basically everything!!!)
    Cons: Please make one size bigger! That's all I ask!

    Thought I was going to have quit playing tennis. Doctor said I lost most of the cartilage in my right arm, I am right handed. Serving and backhands were painful. Any hyperextension. After wearing the DonJoy Performance Bionic Elbow Brace, I am able to serve and play relatively pain free. Has given me a new life with tennis!!

    Brace has good support but the sizing is terribly wrong. The forearm should be measured as it is hard to even slide it over the forearm.

    I weightlift daily and started experiencing pain in my left elbow. By the end of my workout the pain was so bad that it was a task to hold my cell phone to my ear. I have been using the brace for about a month and haven't had any pain since. The only draw back to the product that I don't like is its size limitation. I would like to see the product increase to accommodate at least an 18 inch bicep. Using the brace for what I do didn't take to long to break it in. I read other reviews that didn't have luck with the stitching around the hinged area. So far I haven't noticed any wear with my brace.

    I have a tear in my UCL (tommy John ligament). And have had 4 elbow dislocations. I am 17 years old and play basketball at the varsity level year round. I have found this brace as the only reliable brace, and it gives me confidence that my arm will be stable. The downfall is the brace lasts less then a month with the poor stitching, the metal hinges poke through, defeating the purpose of the prevention of hyperextension. I really hope this can be a fix, maybe put an extra layer of stitching? Or add an extra material to increase the durability of the brace.

    2 of my boys had UCL injuries (one a complete break of the medial epicondyle corrected with surgery, the other a partial tear with a medial epicondyle fracture) from wrestling. We used this brace for football season and now for wrestling. It has worked great. It protects the joint, and gives the boys confidence that the elbow is stable. The only downfall is the durability of the brace over a full football season. The neoprene has torn over the hinges due to multiple cleanings and contact during games.
