: i am thinking now on what I can get to better protect my arm. i know even when healed, when i slam forward, i will kept right arm bent so i will slide on my elbow/side of arm. outstretched arm wont happen. i will need better foam at elbow then PD 1/2" kiddies. i was told those with a hard shell provide more protection. i was going to get standard PD but if my arm is bent, wont a bmx/motorcycle give more support if I can get equal foam? i really cant fit adults unless custom. my right forarm is now less then 7" around lol.

I don't know, Claudine. Pads are pretty personal AND usually require some trial & error. I know, personally, I'm always looking for the right balance between protection & comfort/flexibility. I mean, let's face it: If it's too bulky/heavy/sweaty/whatever you're eventually going to NOT wear it. Then you're in Trouble.
Wear what works for you. Good Luck Keep Healing.
