Place the sewn loop over the affected arm. Pass around the elbow area, then behind the patient’s back and diagonally up and over the unaffected shoulder. The Sling can be looped around the patient’s wrist and the black plastic tri-glide adjusted to size. After fitting, always ensure that the Sling is correctly supporting the elbow and wrist.
Comfort Tip: On a cold morning, it may be beneficial to pre-warm the Sling by wetting with hot water and drying with a towel before fitting to the first patient. The Pelican Shower Chair Cape (sold separately) can be worn by a patient wearing the Elbow/Wrist Sling, so that the arm is supported while the patient is being moved from bedroom to shower room and back again.
