Rolyan Hemi Arm Sling II
The Rolyan Hemi Arm Sling II provides unilateral anti-subluxation support. It positions the head of the humerus in the glenoid fossa and the scapula in the external rotation, as well as enhancing the normal gait pattern.
Indications of the Hemi Arm Sling II
The Hemi Arm Sling provides effective support for patients following a stroke. It is also ideal for conditions with soft tissue injury, and can assist with supporting ligament strain. The arm sling is also suitable for heavier patients and patients with increasing active motion.
Benefits of the Hemi Arm Sling II
The Hemi Arm Sling II has been designed to offer optimal support for the patient. The dynamic elastic straps enable the patient to move actively as muscle strength is restored. This enables the performance of exercises to help with the healing of returning muscles. The support is also useful for helping hemiplegic patients to use their affected arm during functional tasks.
Sizing of the Hemi Arm Sling II
The Rolyan Hemi Arm Sling II is available for both the right and the left side, with a choice of five sizes for the best possible fit. To determine the size required, measure the distance from the acromion to acromion posteriorly across the midpoint of the scapula. The diagram below can provide further information.
If a medium size is required, measure the circumference of the chest around the armpits to determine if the narrow or broad option is required.
