If you experience more severe pain or strength-related difficulties in and around the elbow joint, the Platinum magnetic elbow support is your best choice for relief. It works extremely well, reducing more severe discomfort from arthritis, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow pain, and speeds recovery after repetitive strain injury.
I am 24 years old and my elbow has hurt ever since I pushed myself too hard with strength training in high school. I tried everything to relieve what the doctors described as Golfer's Elbow, but nothing was a permanent solution. I decided to try the Platinum Full Elbow Support, which I have now been using for over a week. I am happy to report that the pain is significantly reduced and the support has allowed me to resume my normal workout almost immediately. I am really impressed with this product.

The Platinum elbow support can help to significantly improve flexibility and joint function for chronic elbow conditions. 10 large 13,800 gauss neodymium and ceramic magnets are configured to penetrate deep into your forearm, as well as above and below your elbow joint for more extensive relief.
The Platinum magnetic elbow support more effectively eases pain and swelling. Improving blood flow to injuries like tendonitis, elbow strains and bone bruising, speeds up the healing process by delivering more oxygen and nutrients to damaged cells, and more efficiently removing the chemical toxins that build-up as a result of an injury. This helps to reduce swelling and restore flexibility quickly.
Therion® supports and braces are made with patented Acticel™ high-performance fabric. Acticel™ provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
Acticel™ technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of physical activity, allowing Therion orthopedic supports to be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without perspiration build-up.
A Velcro adjustable compression strap reduces strain on your forearm (for example, pain experienced when playing golf, tennis, baseball, or lifting heavy objects) and provides a customized fit. You’ll feel comfortable and protected, as this stable forearm support reduces strain on your tendon, easing pain during arm movement and relieving some of the pressure that causes pain and soreness.
Please note: Not everyone can use magnets. There are a few restrictions.
Acticel™ is a high-performance orthopedic material that provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
Traditional Neoprene supports provide excellent compression, but are non-breathable so they prevent heat and sweat from escaping. This causes over-heating and excessive sweat build-up, making them very uncomfortable to wear for more then a short period of time.
While having advantages over traditional non-breathable Neoprene in certain circumstances, “Breathable” supports provide minimal therapeutic heat benefit because of their uncontolled heat loss. This causes condensation of sweat, which cools the skin. At higher levels of activity, the support will eventually become soaking wet and very uncomfortable. There is also a significant reduction in the compressive and elastic qualities of the material.
Acticel™ creates a perfect therapeutic microclimate between your skin and the support by maintaining optimum therapeutic temperature and low moisture (sweat) at any level of physical activity.
This patented technology is why Therion orthopedic supports can be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without sweat build-up.
Acticel™ uses a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers, each with a tiny hole at the top to replicate the way the leaves of a plant transpire (lose water vapor).
While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny holes at a controlled rate. The chambers flex and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small holes. This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside.
The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user's level of physical activity. This ensures that body heat, blood flow and compression remain consistent during a wide range of activities.
Acticel™ technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion where heat will always move from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature; and water vapor will tend to move from an area of higher density to an area of lower density in order to regain equilibrium.
The unique design of the Acticel™ vapor chamber provides the required air space for excess perspiration to evaporate and collect as vapor. This creates the necessary conditions to establish a steep diffusion gradient at the tiny hole on top of the chamber, allowing maximum removal of vapor, while minimizing therapeutic heat loss.
