WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Arm Sling & Swathe is comfortable to wear with a single, fully adjustable padded shoulder strap.
The arm section is long enough to support the hand. This can prevent hand drop. If the patient wants to use the hand, the hand section can be folded back on itself. Once the sling is in position, a separate swathe can be fitted to support the arm against the body.
The sling can also be used when the patient is lying in bed, by undoing the shoulder strap at the elbow and re-fastening it on the loop sewn under the hand. Used in this manner, the sling will hold the arm vertically.
This item is also available as the sling part only without the swathe (wrap-around part).
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Arm Sling & Swathe is suitable for someone who needs an arm sling. It is generally recommended by a surgeon or therapist.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place your arm in the sling and attached the padded shoulder strap. Fit the swathe (wrap-around part) if required.
