How Do You Adjust the High Arm Sling?

Adjusting the High Arm Sling is incredibly easy, and works by adjusting the height when you feed the strap through the D-ring attachment found on the top of the sling. The Velcro promises a secure fit, and ensures that the sling will not loosen during use.

Can I Put the High Arm Sling on Myself?

The High Arm Sling is designed to be extremely easy to use because of its touch-and-close clasp, and injury permitting you should have no problem fitting the sling yourself. If you do run into problems don't hesitate to contact our Customer Care Team, where one of our experts will be delighted to help.

Should I Wear the Sling as an Arm Sling or Shoulder Immobiliser?

If you are unsure of whether the sling should be worn as an arm sling or shoulder immobiliser, then we would recommend asking your GP or a health professional. A common rule of thumb is that injuries around the shoulder, upper arm and collarbone are best treated with a shoulder immobiliser, while injuries on the lower arm, wrist and hand are better suited with an ordinary arm sling.

Will My Arm Move While Wearing the High Arm Sling?

It is designed to prevent your arm, hand and shoulder from moving during use. While the shoulder strap helps you to raise the sling into a position of your choosing, a waist strap offers additional security and prevents the movement of the arm. You can also tighten the sling to ensure that no movement is possible while retaining comfort.

How Does the High Arm Sling Aid in Recovery?

The High Arm Sling aids in recovery because it prevents movement of key areas while holding your hand in a raised position. By providing stabilisation and preventing movement, you can help the injured area start to heal. The waist strap that is supplied with the sling prevents further movement too, helping to lower the risk of aggravating the injury further.

How Comfortable is the High Arm Sling?

The lining of the sling contains foam and nylon, meaning that is breathable to wear during use. This helps to ensure that the sling is more hygienic, while also preventing your hand and arm from overheating and becoming uncomfortable. As a result the sling is comfortable to use and won't result in discomfort during extended use.

Which Arm is the High Arm Sling For?

The universal design of the High Arm Sling means that it can be used for both arms, making your purchase highly convenient and worth keeping after the user has recovered. The versatility does not stop there, with the adjustable positioning of the sling making it suitable for treating a variety of conditions stretching from your fingers to your collarbone.

How Do I Care For the High Arm Sling?

Caring for your sling can ensure longevity and improve hygiene. You can ensure this by following these four bullet points.

  • Wash periodically by hand with a damp cloth and mild soap (temperature no more than 40°C)
  • Use a towel to absorb most of the dampness and then allow to dry at room temperature
  • Do not hand up, or iron and do not expose to direct heat sources such as stoves, heaters, radiators and direct sunlight
  • Do not expose to alcohol, ointments or solvents

A good purchase

I recently had surgery and this has been very useful in recovery, I think it may last longer if the arm had Velcro as well rather than just attaching the velcro tabs to the material, as it causes this to fluff up, but this may not be the case.

This works and is well made.
The hole in the rubber diaphragm is way too small, much smaller than it needs to be to ensure a good fit around the arm. I had to make the hole bigger to allow my wife to get it over her cast.

This was perfect for my son who had had an operation on his hand. It was so easy to put on and kept his hand high and secure and was comfortable to wear. Delivery next day as promised. Worth the money!

Excellent product and fast delivery

I needed a padded sling following surgery. The hospital one is huge! This is nicely padded for protection and comfortable to wear. Only issue is the Velcro is SO strong, it got caught on my bandage and tore it! Nice subtle blue colour, better than my hospital one which is BRIGHT purple!

Relatively expensive but this is excellent quality and 24 hour delivery. Highly recommended.
