Shoulder joint orthoses for immobilization in internal rotation
Place the shoulder strap over the neck in such a way that both ends are of equal length. Wrap one end of the strap around your wrist and fasten it tightly. Now wrap the other end of the strap around your forearm and also fasten it tightly. This is how the product should be worn during the day.
At night, wrap the wide waist strap around your stomach and tie it. The shoulder strap can now be attached to the waist strap using the hook and loop fastener attached.
Hook and loop fastener should be closed for washing. Soap residues, lotions and ointments can cause skin irritation and material wear.
Wash the product by hand, preferably using a medi clean detergent, or in delicate cycle at 30°C using a mild detergent without fabric conditioners.
