Fitting of the Shoulder Sling

  1. Using the Allen wrench provided set the outrigger with no angle or straight (neutral position).
  2. With the patient supine or standing, apply the pelvic portion of the brace. Assure comfort by aligning the iliac crest with the plastic contour and securing the lower (hip) strap.
  3. Loosen nuts (1), (2), and (3). Note that the forearm support bar and the attachment block slide independently of each other.
  4. With the patient’s elbow flexed place the forearm in support. The elbow should be positioned about 1” posterior to the plastic cuff.
  5. Position the attachment block with respect to the forearm so that the support shaft (7) is 1” proximal to the midpoint between the wrist and elbow.
  6. Adjust forearm length and loosely hand-tighten nut (3). Remove the hand grip by squeezing the tips of a quick-release fork (4) to unlock. Check the wrist to ensure unrestricted flexion.
  7. Accommodate flexion, rotation, and abduction adjustments accordingly and securely hand-tighten nuts (1), (2), and (3).
  8. Secure contact closures over the forearm and readjust the posterior plastic overlap for comfort as necessary. Attach the hand grip by sliding the tips of a fork through a quick-release bracket until a ‘click’ is heard.
  9. While supporting the forearm, loosen the socket head cap screw on the outrigger bar to allow angulation.
  10. With nuts (6) and (2) loose enough to allow motion, angle the shaft upward while sliding the forearm outward. You will notice, depending on the amount of abduction required, the attachment at the pelvic section B (6) will compensate for elevation to maintain the appropriate arc required in abduction.
  11. Using the Allen wrench, securely tighten the socket head cap screw to lock the angle of the outrigger. Care should be taken to avoid mismatching the serrations when securely tightening.
  12. Hand tightens nuts (2) and (6). 14. Loosen nuts (5) for anterior/posterior positioning and finer elevation adjustments and hand tightening.
  13. Secure all nuts with a crescent wrench when all adjustments have been completed.
