ProCare Healthcare Bear Arm Sling for Children
Children can be more susceptible to painful shoulder injuries, particularly if they lead an active lifestyle. The ProCare Healthcare Bear Arm Sling for Children is a paediatric sling that is designed to help immobilise your child's shoulder following an injury.
The sling helps stabilise the shoulder while preventing the arm from moving into uncomfortable positions. This helps speed up the healing process, allowing your child to recover as quickly as possible so they can continue going about their daily activities.
