More About This Product
Hemi Shoulder Sling uses a unique shoulder saddle that transfers arm weight to scapula to maintain constant depression of the scapula combined with a fully adjustable elastic cuff to elevate the humerus and reduce subluxation. The three-point adjustable fixation straps mimic the role of the deltoid muscles to maintain the integrity of the shoulder joint while allowing for proper force registration as rehabilitation continues.
Unlike conventional slings that immobilize or limit motion, which may result in contracture, this lightweight sling allows full ROM of the arm while still maintaining stability and distraction. Sling can be worn over or under clothing.
Suggested code: A4565.
Sizing: Measure arm circumference at widest point of bicep. Round up if between sizes.

Patent #5,403,268Offload the humeral joint
Arm weight alone can contribute to painful subluxation during the rehabilitation of conditions such as CVA, post-humeral fracture, brachial plexus injury, and shoulder-girdle weakness/flaccidity. Conventional slings lack the ability to adequately offload the humeral joint while retaining ROM and prevent potential contracture.
The Hemi-Shoulder Sling uses a shoulder saddle to offload the shoulder and humeral joint subluxing forces and transfer the weight of the arm to the scapula. The fully adjustable elastic cuff with three-point fixation straps easily adjusts and allow full ROM while still maintaining stability and distraction. Fits a variety of patients and stages of rehabilitation.
