Here's a video with do's and dont's:
Top Five Mistakes to Avoid When Using Flextend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06dE_-oa0wQ

I don't have experience with the Flextend. It seems it was made largely to treat carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrist.

Just based on how it works, I would think the twisting motion of the Theraband Flexband http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB3TVb8a5mk would be a better exercise for the muscles/tendons involved in tennis elbow, but it certainly does seem that comeback had great results using the Flextend.

I hope comeback sees this and can explain further the specific exercises he used - how much flexion and extention and how much twisting exercises. Also I would love to know if he first used the Theraband Flexbar without results.
