The Masalo® Cuff is a medical device according to regulation 2017/745/EU
The cause of the epicondylitis with microcracks and inflamed tendon insertions
Masalo counter-traction principle against tennis elbow, golfers elbow, mouse arm, epicondylitis which immediately reduces the tractive forces

Main cause of the epicondylitis

With each movement of the arm, fingers or wrist, tensile forces of the forearm muscles act on the tendon attachments at the elbow. Unusually high loads, strenuous or repetitive movements of the arm can lead to microcracks in these tendons and they may become inflamed. These are the main causes for the tennis elbow / golfer’s elbow.

If tensile forces are the main cause for the injury and if every single movement of the arm may even aggravate the condition, wouldn’t it be logical to apply a counter-force to the area affected?

That’s exactly what the Masalo® Cuff does – simple, logical, very effective!

Operating principle

The Masalo® Cuff MED works with the proven Masalo® counter-traction principle, which is still unique in the field of epicondylitis treatment. More than 26,000 customers have already been able to rid their treacherous injury with the help of our Masalo® BASIC leather cuff.

The comfortable forearm cuff of the Masalo® cuff MED is placed a few inches apart from the elbow and fixed with the high-quality and very durable Velcro fastener. The upper arm strap is then also fastened with a Velcro and adjusted accordingly to the desired activity and load of the arm.

Now, with every extension a counter-traction is exercised, which attenuates and sometimes even completely neutralizes the tensile forces acting on the tendon whereby elbow and tendons are relieved. Despite relief of the forearm, the muscles are not weakening, because the arm can still be used normally. Due to the unrestricted blood flow the healing process may also be promoted.

The unique and patent pending construction keeps the upper arm strap in place regardless of the movement or the flexion of the arm. Slipping of the belt is prevented by an additional element with silicone nubs (which can optionally be easily removed as well). The tensile forces are reduced or completely stopped by the proven counter-traction principle, the affected area is relieved immediately. The negative tractive forces are diverted to the redesigned upper arm strap.

The Masalo® Cuff does NOT work with compression and works like NO other ordinary clasp, brace or cuff available!

As a result, the affected tendons have the chance to heal, although the arm can be used at full strength again.
