SHOULDER SLING

Both versions of the UltraSling II provide immobilization for rotator cuff repairs, capsular shifts, Bankhart repairs, glenohumeral dislocation/subluxation, and soft tissue repairs/strains. This sling has been designed with an easy-open front panel to encourage forearm exercises. Adding to the comfort of the patient, the UltraSling II allows the arm to be positioned in a variety of ways dependent on post-operative requirements (either more posterior or anterior).

Features and benefits include:

  • Breathable, extra-padded fabric for greater comfort, particularly in longer-term use.
  • Encourages effective healing by allowing the shoulder and arm to remain in a neutral position
  • Helps prevent post-operative internal rotation contractures that can occur in a sling
  • Promotes auxiliary air exchange to reduce risk of secondary infections
  • Exercise ball stimulates circulation

The AB version includes a large, comfortable pillow giving greater abduction where required (45 or 60 degrees).
