Orthosis for immobilising the shoulder

The medi SAS comfort can be used for relieving the shoulder. This orthosis positions the arm in 15-degree-abduction. For example, this is required after a rotator cuff reconstruction (due to a torn tendon in the shoulder), after a surgical shoulder stabilisation or anterior shoulder dislocation.
This orthosis immobilises the shoulder. The ergonomic hand rest ensures early-stage functional therapy to train the forearm at the same time. The sophisticated strap system distributes the pressure across the entire shoulder and allows the orthosis to be put on and taken off independently.

New: In order to relieve the ulnar nerve (nerve on the inside of the upper arm) in a targeted manner, medi has enlarged and improved the anatomical upper arm section in the abduction cushion of the medi SAS comfort shoulder orthosis. In addition, a new, pleasantly soft inner material provides more wearing comfort. This supports the compliance with the therapy.
