This sling for broken collarbones is designed to support the arm, shoulder, wrist, and hand after injury or surgery. It may also be used to limit movement or to elevate the arm to reduce pain and inflammation following injury or surgery.
The flannel lined wrist cuff is secured with a Velcro strap, making application and adjustability quick and uncomplicated for the user. The sling itself is also adjustable, allowing the patient to modify the length of the collarbone sling and the position of the hand and wrist.

Collar and Cuff Sling for Fractured Humerus
The collarbone runs between the top of the sternum and the shoulder blade, helping to connect the arm to the rest of the body.
A broken collarbone is generally the result of a direct fall or collision to the shoulder, or a hard fall onto an outstretched arm. Broken collarbones are one of the most common sports injuries, especially in contact sports or other sports involving risk of a hard fall.
Most collarbone fractures will heal on their own as long as the arm is properly immobilized in a sling for broken collarbones such as this one. Collarbone fractures should also be treated with ice and physical therapy depending on the severity of one's injury.
In some cases, if the collarbone is significantly displaced or the break is severe, surgery may be necessary to realign the bone. A cuff sling is also useful following surgery for collarbone fractures and shoulder dislocations.
In the case of fractures to the wrist, hand, and arm, one will likely have a cast or wear a sling, or in some cases both. Doing so will immobilize these injured areas to promote rapid healing and prevent harmful movements. Following removal of a cast, a sling is very beneficial to reduce swelling and pain.
