Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber absorbs the vibrations whenever your elbow is subjected to sudden impact such as golf, tennis, baseball, hammering, pounding or typing on a keyboard.


How does Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber work and why is it the most effective treatment?

Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber utilizes a high-density proprietary liquid to absorb vibrations, significantly neutralizing the force of impact. For tennis elbow (and golfers elbow!) this means vibrations transmitted from the tennis racquet or golf club to the elbow are decreased by 50 -70 percent. As a result, an increase in strength and power may also occur.

The best treatment against tennis elbow, golfers elbow, muscle stress and fatigue!

Studies prove Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber is the most effective treatment.

Five independent clinical studies have shown that Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber dampens vibrations better than anything ever seen and actually prevents tennis elbow or golfers elbow and tendonitis. Wear it on your wrist, like a wrist watch, it will help treat injuries and combat pain before it gets to the elbow!

Engineering Studies conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at HAKO Research Laboratories, concluded that the Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber reduces migratory vibrations by 50 - 70 percent making Tenex® the most effective treatment against tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome available today.



"Our results say that Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber dampens vibrations better than anything we've ever seen."

Trial Tests of Tenex® Elbow Shock Absorber on subjects suffering from tennis elbow revealed a dramatic improvement in their condition, and in some cases, complete treatment of the symptoms.

Clinical Testing found a measurable improvement in players' strenght and power, attributable to a reduction in the inhibition caused by pain:

"I developed tennis elbow in 1988. Because tennis is my bread and butter I would not stop playing. I tried to play with different bandages hoping for a miracle. The miracle never came until I was introduced to Tenex®. I put it on my wrist, and since then my tennis elbow has disappeared. That was a miracle. I believe 90% of the people with tennis elbow who have been trying Tenex® have had 100% improvement with the injury completely disappearing."

What is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is an injury to the muscles and tendons on the outside (lateral aspect) of the elbow resulting from overuse or repetitive stress.

The narrowing of the muscle bellies in the forearm, as they merge into the tendons, creates highly focused stress in the areas where they insert into the bone of the elbow. Injury to the lateral aspect of the elbow is the most common upper extremity tennis infliction. Tennis elbow is generally caused by overuse of the extensor tendons in the forearm, particularly the extensor carpi radialis brevis.



Outside of the elbow
(lateral epicondylitis)



The location of pain, on the outside (lateral) of the elbow, is usually gradual with tenderness felt on or below the joint's bony prominence. Movements such as gripping, lifting and carrying are difficult.


50% of players will experience this condition


Commonly experienced by the amateur player, this injury is often a result of 1) a one-handed backhand with poor technique (the ball is hit with the front of the shoulder up and power generated from the forearm muscles), 2) a late forehand swing preparation with resulting wrist snap to bring the racquet head perpendicular to the ball, or 3) while serving, the ball is hit with full power and speed with wrist pronation (palm turned downward) and wrist snap, which increases the stress on the already taught extensor tendons. The damage incurred with tennis elbow consists of tiny tears in part of the tendon and in muscle coverings. After the initial injury heals, these areas often tear again, which leads to hemorrhaging and the formation of rough, granulated tissue and calcium deposits within the surrounding tissues. Collagen, a protein, leaks out from around the injured areas causing inflammation. The resulting pressure can cut off the blood flow and pinch the radial nerve (one of the major nerves controlling muscles in the arm and hand).
