Medi-Dyne is extremely proud to report that two of its products, the Cho-Pat® Achilles Tendon Strap and Cho-Pat® Golfer’s Elbow Support™, have received endorsements from the Mayo Clinic™. Both of these products, which are designed to bring relief to athletes of all skill levels, were developed in conjunction with sports medical professionals at the Mayo Clinic™.
Cho-Pat® Achilles Tendon Strap
This medically proven device reduces stress and alleviates the pain associated with Achilles tendonitis. Our tendon strap provides this relief by applying consistent heel support as well as adjustable pressure. It is recommended by many sports medicine practitioners in addition to traditional treatment procedures. Benefits include:
- Adjustability for maximum effectiveness
- Firm, comfortable compression
- Comfort straps to ensure the optimum fit
- A range of sizes to provide the best possible results
Achilles tendonitis is commonly suffered in people who participate in sports that require a great deal of running and jumping, such as volleyball, basketball, football, track and soccer. In many instances, over-straining or a lack of proper conditioning of the tendon can result in swelling and a negative effect on performance. When used in conjunction with other types of therapy, such as stretching and ice, the Cho-Pat® Achilles Tendon Strap can bring relief from discomfort and pain.
Cho-Pat® Golfer’s Elbow Support™
Also designed in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic™, the Cho-Pat® Golfer’s Elbow Support™ provides stability to the muscles of the forearm to minimize stress and alleviate pain. It is lightweight and durable and provides a perfect fit as well as shock absorbing support.
Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) is commonly experienced by people who participate in sports and other activities that result in stress being applied to the forearm area. It is usually characterized by tenderness and pain in the area of the elbow where the forearm tendons attach to the medial epicondyle, or the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. This injury is typically a result of excessive over-use and strain. By applying the correct amount of pressure, the Cho-Pat® Golfer’s Elbow Support™ brings substantial relief.
