Elevation Collar & Cuff Arm Sling

Providing adults and children with comfortable, fun and stylish support, our elevation collar and cuff arm sling (sometimes known as an upper arm sling) is recommended for:-

  • Injury to the wrist, hand and fingers (i.e. cuts, bruises, sprains, fractures or surgery)
  • Injury to the shoulder or collarbone
  • To alleviate bleeding and swelling, which increases pain and throbbing
  • Post surgery

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 elevation 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

  • Offering elevated support to the upper half of the arm, positioning the hand above heart level
  • Reduces swelling
  • Helps control bleeding
  • Provides effective support at the elbow and wrist, without obscuring the affected limb and without applying any force to the injured side
  • Holds the arm across and up in front of the chest - ideal for when pressure cannot be put on the elbow
  • Comfortably immobilises injured shoulders, elbows and wrists

Easy to use

Our elevation 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 elevation collar and cuff arm 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 is:

  • Safety pin
  • Two tie fasteners

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

  • Place the injured arm through the existing sling loop at the elevated position
  • Bring the other end of the sling over the shoulder and behind the neck, fastening with the safety pin or ties provided
  • Fasten left over sling material with remaining tie

A smaller sized sling is advised for this sling configuration.

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
