The examples of active grip dilemmas are everywhere and are directly causing diverse & costly elbow problems (and injury to the entire upper extremity). Elbow stability is especially at high risk in sports, music, hobby and in the workplace. And the result of these active elbow problems are becoming more apparent as an enormous baby boomer generation ages, and as our society becomes more grip, finger and thumb dependent with regard to cell phones, gaming & computers. Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome, radial tunnel syndrome are the most common examples.
