Arm and Shoulder Immobilizer.
Doctors commonly treat the dislocation of the shoulder by putting the head of the humerus back into the joint socket of the scapula. This sort of a procedure is called manipulation and reduction (M&R). This is usually followed with an X-ray to make sure this process did not fracture the surrounding bones. The arm is then immobilized in a sling or a device called a shoulder immobilizer for several days. If you suffer from such an injury then the Arm and Shoulder Immobilizer by Freeman is for you.
The wraparound chest band is made of a half section of one way stretch elastic that is attached to a half a section made of foam pile. The chest band depth is 6" and secures by ‘hook and pile’ contact. The push-back elastic wrist and humeral cuffs are sewn to the elastic portion of chest band and are adjustable by ‘hook and pile’ closure. This item is recommended to be used for temporary immobilization of the arm and shoulder. It is reversible in order to accommodate the left or right arm. It is sized according to body circumference.
Arm or shoulder slings can be used for treatment of different types of conditions pertaining to the arm, shoulder, elbow or wrist in adults and pediatrics. These conditions can be caused by a strain, surgery, dislocation, fracture or injury. This shoulder Immobilizer has a contoured design to fit both male and female patients. The elastic chest strap stretches to properly fit the patient. Humeral and wrist cuffs are made of soft foam backed with durable poly/cotton material.
It is simple to use, comfortable to wear and suitable for most adult sizes. It is also completely latex-free. The light and open construction of the orthosis makes keeping personal hygiene easier, particularly around the wound. It holds the arm securely, relieves pain and can also be worn at night.
Sized according to body circumference.

Well made in the USA. More comfortable than the one I got from the hospital after implant of a pacemaker.
