If you have suffered an injury that requires you to wear a sling to help
protect your arm while it heals, it’s important to ensure you have
setup the sling properly to avoid the arm sling from falling off, sliding
or not supporting your entire arm. Wearing a sling keeps your arm against
your body and prevents you from moving your arm too much as you heal after injury.
When fitting the arm sling the most important element is to ensure you
are starting with the appropriate size sling. Then, follow these steps
to ensure you are wearing the sling properly:
- Back strap is adjusted first, allowing for convenient front strap application.
- Arm and wrist are entirely supported.
- Elbow rests in back corner pocket, at 90 degree angle.
