The Hemi Arm Sling provides effective support for patients following a stroke. It is also ideal for conditions with soft tissue injury, and can assist with supporting ligament strain.
The Hemi Arm Sling is designed to provide a comfortable and supportive arm sling that immobilizes the shoulder and arm during recovery. The Hemi arm sling is easily taken on and off and can be worn under clothes discretely for the most effective support anytime. The design of the arm sling properly positions the head, humerus, and scapula in the correct positions for proper recovery and healing. Hemi Arm Sling is most effective following a stroke, soft tissue injury, or ligament damage. The nylon cuff system with polyester foam provides comfort while wearing while also enhancing normal gait patterns.
