The Arm Sling & Abductor Pillow may be used after:

  • Rotator cuff or similar operations,
  • Some dislocations
  • Subluxation
  • Strains etc.

Your medical adviser normally recommends and fits this Sling. The Arm Sling & Abductor Pillow abducts the arm at approximately 15°.

It consists of:

  • An Abduction Pillow
  • Sling
  • Shoulder strap
  • Wrist Strap

To Fit

Normally the Sling is fitted after surgery by the health professional while the Patient is still asleep. Otherwise, below is a general guide:

  • Place the patient’s arm in the Sling.
  • Have the elbow fully back in the Sling.
  • Take the shoulder strap from the wrist area over the unaffected shoulder, across the back and down through the plastic fitting next to the elbow, adjusting to size.
  • Place the Abduction Pillow under the Sling so it is held in position by the Hook & Loop Tape fastening. The surgeon will decide if the bulbous end is to be in front, or beside the chest. Use the strap provided to secure the Sling around the patient’s waist. The Hook Tape should be on the outside.
  • The wrist section can be opened for inspection by undoing one of the Hook & Loop Tape tabs. Fold the front section of the Arm Sling back if you do not want to support the wrist.

If you notice any reactions such as swelling or pain, immediately contact your medical adviser.
