How to Use the High Arm Sling

The High Arm Sling is universal for both left and right arms. These instructions for use demonstrate the product in a right arm application, however the left arm configuration is an identical application process.

  1. Place the injured arm into the sling, ensuring the elbow is held securely in place.
  2. Whilst holding the sling in a closed position, attach the securing strap to the front of the sling as shown and fold over to secure.
  3. To attach the D-ring strap, ensure it is positioned 5 - 7cm up from the patient's wrist. Fold over to secure, ensuring that the side facing D-ring is positioned on the inside of the sling.
  4. Place the shoulder strap over the uninjured shoulder and feed through the D-ring attachment, securing the strap firmly with the Velcro fastening as shown. Adjust the height as required.

To Use as a Shoulder Immobiliser

  1. Attach the immobilisation strap to the front of the High Arm Sling, 3 - 5cm away from the securing strap
  2. Place the immobilisation strap around the back of the waist
  3. Feed the immobilisation strap through the side facing the D-ring (as shown) and secure with the Velcro fastening

Just what was needed
Thursday, 8 July 2021  |  Catherine

I needed a high arm sling following a wrist operation and this does the job perfectly. I had to shorten the shoulder strap as far as it would go in order to keep my wrist elevated and the velcro can be a little tricky with my left hand, but it is so much better than struggling with the cloth sling I was given. I just use it for going for walks outside now because I'm able to rest my arm in it and it makes me feel secure outside.

Excellent product
Thursday, 18 February 2021  |  Lucy

I bought this for my broken wrist which needed to be elevated to prevent swelling. It's very supportive, easily adjustable to the correct height by velcro especially useful when using only one hand and very well constructed. It can also be adjusted for your arm to be in a horizontal position suitable for other arm injuries. It was delivered on a Monday after ordering on Friday and I was kept up to date about its delivery. I can recommend this product.
