Alternate Collar & Cuff Arm Sling

Providing adults and children with comfortable, fun and stylish support, our alternate collar & cuff sling is recommended for:

  • Bone, muscular or ligament injuries to the arm, shoulder, wrist or hand
  • Some upper limb fractures, including clavicle fractures, humerus fractures and hand fractures
  • Dislocations to the arm and shoulder
  • Surgical or non surgical correction (especially in conjunction with a cast or brace)
  • Emergency first aid situations to support a fracture or dislocation awaiting physician intervention

Seek professional advice for the type of sling best suited to your injury.

Made for comfort

Made from soft foam, covered with high quality, breathable, moisture-wicking Lycra® fabric, our alternate collar and cuff arm slings provide strong, comfortable support.  The tubular covered neck pad stops the sling from cutting into the neck, providing optimal patient comfort.

Benefits for recovery

  • Provides support to the collarbone and upper limb area
  • Limits shoulder motion to improve fracture alignment
  • Allows easy movement of the limbs without hampering movement
  • Holds the arm across the front of the chest - ideal for when pressure cannot be put on the elbow
  • Comfortably immobilises injured shoulders, elbows and wrists

Easy to use

Your alternate collar and cuff arm sling can be used on the left or right arm or shoulder.  It can also be worn under or outside clothing.  It is easy to adjust to customise for your specific needs; for example, you can change the angle of arm bend simply by adjusting the length of the sling.

The alternate collar and cuff sling is available in three sizes:

  • Small (140 cm total length)
  • Medium (160 cm total length)
  • Large (180 cm total length)

Included with your sling:

  • safety pin
  • two tie fasteners

To fit an alternate collar and cuff sling, follow these simple steps:

  • Place the injured arm through the existing sling loop
  • Bring the opposite end of the sling over the shoulder, behind the neck, over the top of the forearm to form a second loop, fastening with the safety pin
  • Using ties provided, bring the two loops together and fasten

Caring for your sling

  • If necessary, spot clean only using a clean damp cloth
  • Do not soak, bleach, spin dry, iron or tumble dry
  • Line dry out of direct sunlight
