ProCare Shoulder Immobiliser with Foam Straps
Following an injury to the shoulder and/or elbow joints, it's integral that you support and immobilise the area to prevent further discomfort and injury. The ProCare Shoulder Immobiliser with Foam Straps is made from soft cotton and poly material so you remain comfortable during the rehabilitation process, meaning you can wear the sling for prolonged periods without discomfort. The sling is designed to exert upward pressure on the joints, making it particularly useful for dislocations of the shoulder that require a high level of support and stability.
Who Can Make Gains with the Shoulder Immobiliser?
Simple and comfortable, the ProCare Shoulder Immobiliser is designed to hold your arm in a neutral position following an injury. This makes it particularly suited to arm and shoulder injuries caused by playing contact sports like rugby as this type of activity makes you more prone to trauma in the area.
The immobiliser is constructed in such a way that it prevents your arm from moving into uncomfortable positions. This helps ensure you don't suffer from further injury in the area, allowing you to return to sporting activities as soon as possible.
