Shoulder support for positioning for immoblilisation in 5° abduction and in neutral position

medi SLK 90 is a shoulder support with positioning cushion (and ring straps) to relieve the shoulder in a splayed position (abduction) of 5° and in neutral position. The anatomically moulded cushion makes a stable positioning of the arm possible, while the various straps on the support hold the joint firmly. The intelligent ring straps reduce the tension in the shoulder-neck area, which increases the wearing comfort of the support.

The medi SLK 90 shoulder support can be used for all indications that require immobilisation and relief of the shoulder joint in abduction and neutral position, for example:

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

The anatomically moulded cushion of the medi SLK 90 serves to immobilise the joint in 5° abduction. In this case, the shoulder is positioned securely in neutral postion (90° angle to the frontal plane). This relieves the posterior shoulder structures.

The ergonomic design of the hand rest improves the wearing comfort of the shoulder support, while at the same time allowing the hand to still be moved freely. Early functional follow-up treatment, for example, after surgery, is easily possible thanks to the uncomplicated handling of the support: thus, the lower arm pocket can be easily opened, which, among other things, makes it easier to perform physiotherapeutic exercises.

With the immobilisation of the shoulder, the pain on movement in everyday life can be prevented. The high-quality cushion material promotes the wearing comfort of the shoulder support.
