Once fitted by therapist with 4-Tab Buckle secured, no further adjustment should be needed.
- Place uninvolved arm through the shoulder loop
- Lay sling across back and drape anterior strap over involved shoulder with blue stripe against arm and “GivMohr” side of 4-Tab facing out
- Check 4-Tab Position and adjust if necessary
- Position hand into Handpiece and allow arm to hang by side
- Check that the Elbow Strap is 1” below elbow and horizontal
- Check Strap Positions and adjust at buckles to reduce subluxation if necessary
- Check Axillary (Arm Pit) Pad position and adjust for comfort if necessary
When taking the sling off, remove the sling from the elbow first, then bend the elbow and remove the handpiece – it is not necessary to detach the elbow strap.
With training and practice, most users are able to put the sling on and take it off independently.
