External Rotation Shoulder Cushion
The medi SAS light is a brace for immobilising and relieving strain on the shoulder at an angle of 15° abduction and in a neutral position. This position is particularly recommended after shoulder dislocations and for shoulder instability. The open design facilitates follow-up treatment and increases wearer comfort. The ergonomic arm sling is simple to open, making specific exercises (pendulum exercises) possible as part of therapy.
- Secure holding in 15° abduction and neutral position.
- Postoperative healing of the rotator cuff and avoidance of contractions.
- Holding position supports the installation of the ventral labrum and the relief of the rear capsule parts.
- Avoidance of frozen shoulders and adhesions.
- Position the wide strap beneath your chest and fasten it.
- Position the external rotation cushion under your injured shoulder and fix it to your forearm with the velcro strap on the cushion. Your hand should sit comfortably on the hand rest. You can adjust the strap by cutting it to make it shorter if your forearm is narrower.
- Stick the shoulder strap that goes across your back to the strap that goes around your stomach. Then bring the strap around your uninjured shoulder and close the clasp. Adjust the strap until load is relieved on the injured arm.
- To prevent the arm slipping backwards, the additional strap should be fastened, particularly at night.
- Shoulder instability
- Acute shoulder dislocation after reduction
- Stabilisation of the shoulder in arthroscopic or open technique
- AC joint injury – operative/conservative
- Fracture and osteosynthesis of the shoulder girdle
- Implantation of a shoulder prosthesis
- Humeral head fracture
- Reconstruction after rotator cuff defect
