Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Elbow Splint

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that involves pressure being placed on the ulnar nerve when the elbow is bent, causing numbness, pain and general discomfort. The Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Elbow Splint is designed to alleviate these symptoms, keeping the elbow from bending to prevent pressure on the ulnar nerve.

Who Can Benefit from the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Splint?

This brace is designed to alleviate the symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome, but is also useful for anyone suffering from discomfort as a result of a pressurised, stretched or trapped ulnar nerve. By ensuring the arm stays straight, this elbow support offers a versatile solution to ulnar nerve and cubital tunnel syndrome pain.

Will This Cubital Tunnel Splint Fit My Arm?

This elbow brace is designed with a one size fits most design, and can be easily adjusted to ensure a secure and comfortable fit. To determine if it will fit your arm, measure the circumference of your arm roughly 8cm above your elbow, or at the beginning of your bicep. This support will comfortably fit anyone with a measurement between 22cm and 42cm.

Is This Brace Comfortable to Wear?

This ulnar nerve splint is made with lightweight and breathable materials and a padded wrap, ensuring it is comfortable to wear all day long. The breathability of the elbow brace helps to prevent overheating, making it suitable for use in all seasons.

What Is Cubital Tunnel Syndrome?

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition caused by the ulnar nerve becoming "irritated" as it passes through the cubital tunnel. This can sometimes cause a 'pins and needles' sensation and associated nerve pain. The condition is made worse when the elbow is bent (held in flexion) for long periods of time, such as when you are sleeping.

Where Is the Ulnar Nerve Located?

The ulnar nerve, sometimes referred to as the 'funny bone' nerve, runs up your arm in a groove from your little finger to the inner side of your elbow. When the arm is bent, this nerve becomes stretched or 'trapped', and can cause an electric shock-like sensation that shoots up your arm.

How Does This Cubital Tunnel Brace Relieve Pain?

The Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Splint helps to reduce the pain associated with cubital tunnel syndrome by restricting the bending of your elbow to prevent undue pressure on, or stretching of, the ulnar nerve. The splint is a soft padded wrap with an adjustable aluminium stay for optimal comfort.

Is This CTS Splint Suitable for HNPP?

This brace can help relieve the symptoms of most conditions that involve pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve, including HNPP, or hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsy. While this elbow splint does not represent an overall treatment, it may be helpful in reducing symptomatic pain, numbness or tingling.

Sizing of the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Elbow Splint

The Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Splint is a universal, one size fits most product. The minimum and maximum sizes that this product fits are as follows:

  • Smallest circumference above the elbow 22cm
  • Largest circumference above the elbow 42cm

Fitting the Cubital Tunnel Elbow Splint

Please use the graphic below to aid in fitting the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Elbow Splint. The simple four-step process should ensure that you are getting a good level of support and fit.

Fitting Guide for the Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Elbow Splint

On Which Side of My Arm Should the Rigid Stay Be Placed?

As can be seen in the fitting diagram above, the rigid stay should be placed on the inside of your arm. This allows the ulnar nerve brace to prevent excessive bending of the arm, which will prevent trapping, stretching or pressure on your nerve.

Can This Brace Be Worn All Night?

Yes, this brace will work as an elbow immobiliser or night extension splint while you sleep, preventing your arm from bending at night. This is one of the most useful aspects of the brace, as it prevents the bending of the elbow that will often occur during the night, which is one of the highest risk times for those suffering from cubital tunnel syndrome.

Can I Wash this Elbow Brace?

This elbow support can be washed, but is suitable for hand washing only. Afterwards it should be air dried flat, as it is not suitable for tumble drying.

Can I Bend This Support?

Yes, this support is designed with a bendable aluminium stay, allowing easy adjustments and shaping. This allows it to be bent to a 45° angle, which may be preferable for those who find that sleeping with their arm in a fully straight position is uncomfortable.

What If My Arm Is Too Large for This Elbow Brace?

While this elbow splint is designed to fit the majority of people, those with larger arms may find that it is unsuitable. In this case, we would recommend the MedSpec Cubital Tunnel Brace, which is a similar product that features a slightly larger arm circumference range.

Can I Adjust the Compression of the Elbow Support?

Yes, this support is made with a wraparound design, allowing it to be easily adjusted to your liking for both fit and compression. This makes it ideal for use by those with a wide range of arm sizes, and for those who require a wide range of compression levels.

What Is the Length of This Splint?

This splint measures 29cm in length. This is a universal size, and should be suitable for use by the majority of individuals.

How Large is This Elbow Support When Delivered?

When it is delivered, this support will be provided folded up in packaging measuring 30 x 19 x 3cm.

Does This Support Contain Neoprene?

No, this support is made with lightweight and breathable materials, and does not contain neoprene. This makes it ideal for those with neoprene allergies.

Is This Support Latex-Free?

Yes, this support is completely latex-free, making it suitable for use by those who suffer from latex allergies.

Can This Elbow Brace Be Used While Running?

While it is not expressly designed for use by running, the breathable and lightweight materials of this brace make is suitable for use during exercise. The elbow immobilising nature of the brace may make running slightly uncomfortable, as normal form and running motion may be disrupted.

Is the Aluminium Stay Removable?

Yes, the aluminium stay is removable, allowing this elbow brace to be used as a regular elbow compression splint. It is not, however, designed for this purpose, and we would recommend the Bauerfeind EpiTrain Elbow Support for elbow compression purposes.

Is This Ulnar Nerve Elbow Splint Suitable for Tennis Elbow?

No, this elbow brace is designed to prevent ulnar nerve entrapment and pressure, and is not suitable for tennis elbow. To treat the symptoms of tennis elbow, we recommend the Tennis Elbow Epicondylitis Jura Clasp.

Can I Return This Support If Unsuitable?

Yes, this support can be returned if unsuitable, providing it is still in its original packaging and in a saleable condition. For more information regarding our returns policy, visit our Returns Policy page.

The product is well made and comfortable, especially after bending the insert a little to the recommended angle. Too early to tell whether it's going to fix my elbow problem (which I've had for a while), but it does seem to be helping. Delivery was incredibly prompt - it arrived two days after ordering. Really pleased with the service.

Once I had bent the aluminium stiffener slightly so that my arm wasn't so straight, the brace was quite comfortable to wear at night and resulted in relieving the numbness I had been getting in my fingers.

The splint is satisfactory and does what it is intended to do. However, the material used causes arm to get very warm and as I have arthritis in my hands the fastenings can be difficult. The ordering process was simpler and delivery excellent.
