- Relieves elbow pain and swelling above and/or below elbow joint
- Ideal for arthritis, elbow sprains, and overuse strains
- Acticel™ support technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of activity
- Reduces inflammation
- Speed healing, helps regain mobility quickly
Relieve pain and inflammation around the entire elbow joint. The Balance magnetic elbow brace uses 10 large, 4,300 gauss ceramic magnets, increasing blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nutrients to damaged cells, helping to speed up healing and regain mobility.
The Balance magnetic elbow brace is made with patented Acticel™ high-performance fabric. Acticel™ provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
Acticel™ technology maintains an ideal comfort zone between your skin and the support at any level of physical activity, allowing Therion orthopedic supports to be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without perspiration build-up.
The magnetic elbow sleeve offers flexible compression to help support weakened elbow joints, making it ideal for arthritis, elbow sprains, and overuse strains. With an easy slip-on design, you can rotate the support to target pain on the inside or outside of your elbow.
Please note: Not everyone can use magnets. There are a few restrictions.

What is Acticel?
Acticel™ is a high-performance orthopedic material that provides superior compressive support, and offers significant advantages over other neoprene and elastic support materials.
The comfort problem with orthopedic supports
Traditional Neoprene supports provide excellent compression, but are non-breathable so they prevent heat and sweat from escaping. This causes over-heating and excessive sweat build-up, making them very uncomfortable to wear for more then a short period of time.
While having advantages over traditional non-breathable Neoprene in certain circumstances, “Breathable” supports provide minimal therapeutic heat benefit because of their uncontolled heat loss. This causes condensation of sweat, which cools the skin. At higher levels of activity, the support will eventually become soaking wet and very uncomfortable. There is also a significant reduction in the compressive and elastic qualities of the material.
What are the benefits of Acticel™?
Acticel™ creates a perfect therapeutic microclimate between your skin and the support by maintaining optimum therapeutic temperature and low moisture (sweat) at any level of physical activity.
This patented technology is why Therion orthopedic supports can be worn for long periods of time without overheating and without sweat build-up.
How does Acticel™ work?
Acticel™ uses a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers, each with a tiny hole at the top to replicate the way the leaves of a plant transpire (lose water vapor).
While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny holes at a controlled rate. The chambers flex and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small holes. This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside.
The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user's level of physical activity. This ensures that body heat, blood flow and compression remain consistent during a wide range of activities.
What is the science behind Acticel™?
Acticel™ technology is based on the laws of thermodynamics and diffusion where heat will always move from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature; and water vapor will tend to move from an area of higher density to an area of lower density in order to regain equilibrium.
The unique design of the Acticel™ vapor chamber provides the required air space for excess perspiration to evaporate and collect as vapor. This creates the necessary conditions to establish a steep diffusion gradient at the tiny hole on top of the chamber, allowing maximum removal of vapor, while minimizing therapeutic heat loss.
