medi SAS® 15 - shoulder support
The medi SAS® 15 is a support for immobilisation of the shoulder. It helps to hold the arm away from the body at a 15° angle (abduction) and provides tangible relief for the shoulder. The anatomically preformed cushion allows a secure and comfortable positioning of the joint. The breathable lower arm pocket also increases the comfort in wear of the shoulder support.
The support can be used for all indications requiring immobilisation of the shoulder joint in abduction such as:
- after rotator cuff repair
- humeral head fractures (nonsurgical, postoperative)
- after insertion of shoulder prosthesis
- after stabilization of acromioclavicular joint dislocations
- after biceps tenodesis
- impingement syndrome (nonsurgical, postoperative)
The lower arm pocket of the medi SAS® 15 is easy to open for early functional follow-up treatment such as physiotherapy.
The wearer can put the medi SAS® 15 support on and take it off without assistance. Both the construction of the shoulder abduction cushion and the high-quality fastening mechanisms make the product easier to handle.
With its high-quality padding material and breathable textile mixture, the medi SAS® 15 ensures a pleasant comfort in wear all year round. Since the shoulder support is easy to modify, it can be worn on both the left and the right sides.
