Medi Omomed Shoulder Support
The Medi Omomed Shoulder Support limits and prevents movement of the shoulder. It achieves this by using the adjustable marked limitation of external rotation, abduction and anteflexion of the shoulder joint. The elastic knit provided gentle compression of the soft tissue to combat swelling and to reduce muscular tension.
The Medi Omomed Shoulder Support is for conservative treatment for painful osteoarthritis of the shoulder, post-operative treatment after shoulder joint prostheses and conservative treatment for acute and chronic anterior dislocation of the shoulder. The Omomed shoulder support is also ideal for post-operative treatment after stabilisation of the shoulder joint and reconstruction of the rotator cuff insertions and re-fixation of the bicep tendon anchor (SLAP lesion).
