The band works very well for tennis elbow and the "pull strap" is good for tightening the band around the arm/elbow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cweb1212 Good product for small forearms!
This product is probably good for smaller forearms... I don?t by any means have giant POPEYE forearms... average probably, but the Velcro isn?t strong enough to offer substantial enough pressure and loosens on flexing of the forearm especially when I do an athletic activity... It maybe better for smaller forearms. I should have looked for one that was a slip on sleeve style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HarfordLifter Great relief for forearm tendinitis
I am an active weight lifter (3-4x/week), and I lift heavy for strength, not endurance. I've had persistent problems with forearm tendinitis on the tendon which starts on the outside of my upper arm and curves over to the inside of my forearm, roughly following the brachioradialis. It bothers me with nearly all gripping exercises. I tried kinesiology tape, which does work but irritated my skin after a couple days.
I'm happy to report that this support strap seemed to help considerably, and that pain is gone (after suffering with it for 6 months). In short, it works! The strap itself is easy to use and seems durable enough, but I'm waiting to see how long the velcro lasts because I keep it fairly tight. If you attach it tight below the widest part and then move it onto the widest part of your arm, you can achieve significant tension. Otherwise, it's hard to get it tight using one hand.
It loses one star only because of the likely durability of the velcro and the difficulty achieving tension that I mentioned. However, it's effectiveness is definitely five stars, and it's value is excellent as well. Definitely worth a try if you're having similar issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pbw one size does NOT fit all
I bought this brace for my tennis elbow. The package says that one size fits all but it doesn't.
Try this brace on before you buy it!!
