Hemiplegic Collar & Cuff Arm Sling

Providing adults and children with comfortable, fun and stylish support, our hemiplegic collar and cuff arm sling is recommended for:-

  • Stroke or when a patient has insufficient muscular return around the shoulder joint to protect the shoulder from injury
  • For those who have a high risk of developing oedema in their hands
  • Bone, muscular or ligament injuries to the ribs, arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist or hand
  • Some upper limb fractures, including clavicle fractures and some proximal or mid-shaft humeral fractures
  • Arm support following surgical or non surgical correction (especially in conjunctin with a cast or brace)
  • Emergency first aid situations to support a fracture or dislocation awaiting physician intervention
  • Compound fractures as no pressure is put on the bone sticking out of the arm

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 hemiplegic 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 effective support at the elbow and wrist, without obscuring the affected limb and without applying any force to the injured side
  • Designed to suspend a user's arm, with or without a cast
  • Limits shoulder motion to improve fracture alignment
  • 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 hemiplegic 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 hemiplegic 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 a hemiplegic collar and cuff sling, follow these simple steps:

  • Ensure the arm is well supported on a pillow during the application of the sling
  • Place the wrist of the injured arm though the existing sling loop
  • Bring the opposite end of the sling over the shoulder and under the opposite armpit
  • Pass the end down over the forearm close to the elbow, forming a loop and then fastening with the safety pin or ties provided at the rear
  • Once applied, check the position of the sling again, ensuring the arm is well supported
  • Adjust as necessary
  • Note: the neck should not support the weight of the arm

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
