Positionung cushion for immobilisation of the shoulder
medi SLK 90 is a shoulder luxation pillow. The product is exclusively to be used for the orthotic fitting of the shoulder and only on intact skin.
- Allows positioning of the shoulder at 90° to the frontal plane releasing the posterior capsule to optimum position
Open the hip belt’s red click-in fastener on the cushion. Place the shaped side of the cushion above the hip bone of the affected side.
Wrap the belt around your waist and secure it. Adjust the length of the belt to achieve a perfect fit.
Open the black click-in fastener at the front of the cushion and allow the belt to fall down backwards. Open the straps on the sling and lay your arm in the sling, making sure that your elbow is right in the corner of the sling. Place your hand on the ball. Close the sling with the Velcro strips.
Pass the shoulder strap over the healthy shoulder from the back. Now pass your arm through the loop when putting on a jacket.
Fasten the shoulder strap to the front of the cushion. Adjust the length of the shoulder strap. Make sure that the strap is under tension but does not cut into the skin under the arm. If the strap is too long, you can undo the Y-Velcro strip, trim the strap to the desired length with scissors, and re-attach the Y fastener.
