Therefore, painters, plumbers, housewives and constant computer keyboard and mouse users are more likely to develop tennis elbow. The tennis elbow continues to bother a wider range of people. Elbow is designed to make the problem easier.
When the user constantly stretching and bending their arms, or waving their arms, the Elbow make use of this energy. It generates heat with the energy storage, alleviating pain through hot application on the elbow.
