When To Use an Arm Sling
The Deluxe Arm Sling can be used for a number of different injuries and problems. However, we recommend its' use for the following:
- Immobilisation of forearm, elbow and arm
- Post upper limb surgery
- Post upper limb trauma
- Broken, Sprained or Pulled arms
How Should an Arm Sling Fit?
An arm sling needs to immobilise the area to prevent further damage. As a result, it needs to hold the arm in the ideal stable and neutral positioning, allowing for sufficient blood flow and therefore faster healing.
Key Features and Benefits of the Deluxe Arm Sling
- Breathable lightweight polyester cotton sling minimises skin irritation
- Soft padded plush foam straps for complete comfort
- Touch-and-close (Velcro) fastenings are easy to use and intuitive
- Thumb loop and full circumferential wrist strap for stability
The Deluxe Arm Sling has a foam waist strap (attached at one end to the sling at the elbow, and the other end Velcro for adjustment) for stabilisation, and a foam shoulder strap with Velcro at both ends for complete customisation of length and elevation of the arm or wrist.
The shoulder strap and waist strap both feature Y-tab Velcro at one end, enabling you to adjust the length of the straps by cutting the foam strap and re-applying the Y-tab to the end of the strap within seconds. This makes the Deluxe Arm Sling highly adjustable.
Integrated Thumb Loop
A thumb loop inside the Deluxe Arm Sling will stop the sling from migrating down the arm and will prevent the forearm from slipping out of the sling. This is perfect for ensuring that your sling remains in the correct position over longer periods of use.
Washing Instructions for the Deluxe Arm Sling
Hand wash the Deluxe Arm Sling in cold water (maximum 30°C) using mild soap and rinse thoroughly. Do not bleach the Deluxe Arm Sling and line dry only.
