  Medical specifications

medi SAS® comfort – for protection of the shoulder

The shoulder abduction support (or shoulder abduction splint) medi SAS® comfort is suitable to be used for all indications that require immobilisation and relief of the shoulder joint. These include:

  • After rotator cuff repair
  • Humeral head fractures
  • After insertion of a shoulder prosthesis
  • After stabilization of acromioclavicular joint dislocations
  • After biceps tenodesis
  • Impingement syndrome (nonsurgical, postoperative)

The shoulder support positions the arm at a 15 degree angle (abduction) and immobilises it in this position. medi SAS® comfort therefore contributes to protecting injured structures and reduces movement-related pain. The anatomical upper opening in the cushion relieves the ulnar nerve and considerably improves wearing comfort. Furthermore, the shoulder support reduces the pressure in the subacromial space (space under the roof of the shoulder joint).

Users can easily apply and remove the medi SAS® comfort shoulder abduction splint without help. It is available for both the left and the right side of the body in three sizes (S, M and L). The super soft pad encloses the arm comfortably, while the breathable material makes it pleasant to wear, even at high temperatures. The ergonomic handrest and the reduction in the tension forces resulting from the ring straps ensure a very high comfort in wear.
