medi Easy sling support for immobilisation of the shoulder joint

The medi Easy sling is a support that is used to immobilise the shoulder joint in internal rotation. Three different wearing options of the support are possible for an individual adaptation to the user as required. For example, the joint can be held more securely during the night by using an additional waist belt.

The medi Easy sling support is used for all indications requiring immobilisation of the shoulder joint in internal rotation, such as:

  • nonsurgical treatment after anterior shoulder dislocation and /or chronic subluxation
  • after rotator cuff repair
  • acromioclavicular joint dislocation (nonsurgical, postoperative)
  • scapula fractures (nonsurgical, postoperative)
  • fractures of the humerus head (nonsurgical, postoperative)

The medi Easy sling gives the user three different wearing and fixing options depending on his or her needs: during the night, an additional waist belt ensures a more secure fixation of the arm. During the day, elements can be removed from the support - to enable the patient to regain a gentle, controlled mobility.  A further wearing option of the support relieves the neck and shoulders during the day: This can reduce the tension on the neck and shoulder, while the shoulder joint remains immobilised. 

The high-quality padding material of the shoulder support ensures that it is comfortable to wear. The medi Easy sling is available in two different sizes for a good fit.
