Donjoy IMMO Sling and Swathe
Suffering from an injury to the shoulder or arm can significantly reduce your ability to use your arms and hands for sporting activities. The Donjoy IMMO Sling and Swathe is designed to immobilise the area following upper extremity trauma. By holding your arm in a neutral position, this helps facilitate healing and reduce the likelihood that you'll suffer from re-injury.
Who Can Make Gains with the IMMO Sling?
Arm or shoulder injuries tend to occur from playing bat or racket games, both of which can put pressure on your arm and shoulder joint. The Donjoy Sling and Swathe is constructed to stabilise your arm and shoulder during the rehabilitation process, allowing you to make a full recovery quickly so you can return to sports as soon as possible. This helps ensure that your performance doesn't suffer too much as a result of the injury, allowing you to excel in your game of choice.
