Product Questions

  • Jeff at 11/3/2016 11:35 AM

    • 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
    • The Bionic Elbow brace, https://www.betterbraces.com/bionic-elbow-brace , would be a great brace to begin your rehab. The cross straps that are implemented onto the brace are designed to immobilized the joint and protect from any further injury. It also has bilateral hinges to prevent any hyper extension. It is best to hand wash, in lukewarm water, with a mild detergent.

    • My daughter measures at 9.5 inches. Will the 1/2 inch make a difference causing the brace to not fit?

    • 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?
    • The Bionic Elbow only comes in sizes s- xl. It is designed with maximum support for injured and recovering elbows, and it had hyperextension stops to prevent hyperextension. The cross strap design allows you to set the max angle of extension to your joint protected.
  • 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.
  • Jason at 2/9/2016 6:55 PM
  • 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.
  • Butch at 1/24/2016 2:41 PM
    • 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.
  • John P. at 1/14/2016 2:02 PM
    • 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.

      John P.
    • 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.
  • Draven at 1/9/2016 7:38 PM
    • 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?
    • No brace will speed up the body's receovery time, however the brace will protect the elbow and help to prevent further injury, during recovery
  • Stephanie at 1/7/2016 6:40 PM
    • Would this brace be ok to wear while playing volleyball?
    • Yes, you can wear the Bionic Elbow while playing volleyball. This brace will support the structures/muscles on the inside and outside of the elbow.

    • 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.
    • David
      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
  • Rose at 11/9/2015 10:22 AM
    • Does this have a god range of motion for back handsprings? Can I refund it if it's not right for me?

    • Hello, my daughter has an elbow which dislocates at times. She is a cheerleader and we are looking for an elbow brace to help try to prevent it from dislocating during competitions. Do you have anything you would suggest to try? Thanks
    • Dorinda
      If your daughters elbow dislocates with elbow extension then the Bionic brace can help to reduce extension. I would suggest asking her medical professional for any other options for her.

    • Avery
      The brace is made of 4mm neoprene so it will provide some amount of cushion to the elbow. The bilateral hinges will provide protection to the elbow joint itself.

  • Gabriela at 10/7/2015 4:17 PM
    • Is the material meant to be tight? I have one that is for compression and I find I have issues wearing it because it's too tight. I have a sublaxating ulnar nerve, cubital tunnel syndrome and chronic tennis elbow. Will this product help my issues?
    • Gabriela
      The brace should be snug but should be so tight that it causes pain. The Bionic Elbow is appropriate for all of the conditions you listed

  • Doc at 9/7/2015 4:04 PM
    • How well does this brace hold up in High School Varsity Football? I have 3 athletes who dislocated their elbows......I'm thinking of trying this brace when they complete rehabilitation.

    Inspires confidence & is fairly comfortable, not much hyperextension protection.

    This brace gets better as it breaks in. It seems to be well constructed of quality materials. I'm a professional climbing arborist and i bought this brace to climb/work and ride in after a traumatic injury to my left arm. I have sixteen screws in my left hand and the connective tissue in my left elbow was destroyed when I was hit head on by a truck while riding a sportbike to work. No, I was not at fault. As others have stated the elastic around the cuff is tight on my Popeye forearm, but seems to be breaking in with normal use and a little coaxing. Overall I like this brace enough to write a review and I don't write reviews. It is comfortable enough for all day use, I've worn it all day in the heat and it's fine if you're not a wimp. It does inspire confidence working construction and riding with my fragile elbow. I particularly like riding with this brace. It breathes nicely at speed and again.. inspires confidence on the motorcycle, but that's about it. When it comes to actual lockout protection and re-injury prevention and the "backup-stability" that a brace should provide, in my humble opinion it leaves much to be desired. I find myself cinching the cross straps down really tight to get enough out of the brace and I feel that it may be stretching the capabilities of the stitching holding the two plastic beckets for the "X straps" to the neoprene. In the event of a fall or other force motivating your arm in a way you don't want, I don't see this brace doing all that much to protect the elbow, at least from hyperextension. Seems to do better with lateral force. I will continue to use this brace and it is worth what I paid on sale. Thank you better braces for providing these products. Long live The Republic and Godspeed.
    Pros: Breathes fairly well easy on/off washes well good range of motion
    Cons: Pinch point inside elbow at times questionable stitching/design for the x-strap re-direct beckets

    I bought the brace because I tore my triceps and for a variety of reasons can not have the surgery done to heal it completely. The brace does give me some strength and support I would not otherwise have. But it is very hot to have it on and too tight around the wrist.

    I dislocated my elbow last summer playing soccer, I wanted a brace to wear this season to prevent injuring it again. This brace was perfect, it wasn't annoying or bulky to wear and made me much more confident my elbow wasn't going to dislocate if I fell on it again. Definitely recommend this brace.
    Pros: Fits well, doesn't rub or irritate skin, I honestly forget I'm wearing it most of the time
    Cons: A little tight around the forearms for the first couple of uses but once you break it in it's fine

    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!!!)
