With accidents occurring every day, such as car crashes, slips, and falls, it's no surprise that many people experience some type of broken bone in their lifetime.
One of the most commonly broken bones of the human body is the arm. Arm breaks can occur in either your upper or lower arm to the radius or ulna. The wrist is actually the most common bone break in the arm, and is typically broken when you attempt to stop a fall.
Many people are guilty of self-diagnosing their broken arm as something else and avoid seeking appropriate medical attention. Without proper treatment, the break can heal poorly and impact wrist function in the future. As a result, other painful conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis may also occur later in life.
An injured arm requires constant rest as well as care. This arm sling is committed to providing effective relief, helping unload the weight of a heavy plaster cast while you recuperate. It also provides a sign to others to treat your arm gently.
The ergonomic, patented design gives men and women the freedom to wear it in a variety of ways, depending on what is needed for your specific injury. It can be worn over either shoulder and on either arm to target a range of shoulder or arm injuries.
It holds your arm at the elevation you adjust it to, allowing it to heal in the proper orientation. When wearing this arm cast sling, your arm is not completely immobile.
If extra support is needed, bandages or wraps can be applied around the body and upper arm to hold your arm firmly at your chest. Otherwise, for complete immobilization, check out our Sling and Swathe Immobilizer for shoulder injuries!
A collar and cuff sling is most commonly used for an upper arm injury, dislocated collarbone, or clavicle fracture when a standard sling is not available. While wearing a collar and cuff sling, your elbow hangs naturally at the side of your body. A strip of cloth or a belt is wrapped around the wrist of your injured arm and worn around your neck, like a halter top.
Because cuff and collar slings support your arm by putting pressure on the back of your neck, many people experience pain and irritation. Our patented sling for broken wrists moves that pressure over to your shoulder and can switch sides to your other shoulder so that one shoulder isn’t forced to support that burden alone.
This design is the most versatile sling on the market. Completely unique to the orthopedic world, since it is the first sling that can be worn over your injured or non-injured side. This has many advantages for certain injuries and conditions, such as clavicle breaks, AC separations, dislocation, nerve issues, and more.
Most patients complain about their “good” side hurting due to the strap pressure from a traditional sling, now they can switch it from side to side. This brace also leaves your elbow free! If you suffer from elbow bursitis, regular slings can irritate the elbow as you wear them.
Regular, triangular slings support your arm by placing pressure on the side of your neck, which can become very uncomfortable after a couple of hours. This strap distributes pressure over your shoulder and allows you to switch sides so one shoulder isn’t forced to carry the weight alone.
The low-profile design is also much more freeing than an average arm sling. It leaves your arm uncovered to avoid overheating. Ideal for hot weather, working out and getting air to your injured arm or shoulder.
Specially designed with all-day wear in mind, it is made of a soft elastic material, which is comfortable next to the skin. The elastic strap uses medical-grade fasteners and a heavy-duty metal buckle, ensuring they will hold strong throughout the day.
Perhaps “waterproof” isn’t the best phrasing, as this sling will still absorb water. However, it is water-friendly, meaning it is safe to get wet. Great to wear in the shower, bath, pool, and at the beach!
It can be worn on the right or left arm, suitable for men, women, and children. The one size fits most style is designed to fit people ranging from 5’ to 7’5” tall.
It can be very difficult to put on shoulder slings by yourself post-surgery or with a painful injury. One of the greatest parts of this brace is that, unlike many shoulder slings, it is fully adjustable with just one hand. This strap system can be quickly adjusted throughout the day to change the size and fit of both the shoulder strap and wrist strap.
