Comments about the GivMohr Sling:
"I would just like to let you know that the sling you sent to us
... has been worn by my husband ... every day ... and we are amazed with the improvement in his subluxation and of course, the decrease in shoulder pain. There has also been an increase in arm movement and we notice some muscle development too. The sling has given us back some hope in regaining some arm strength. Thank you so much."
"Richard loves the GivMohr Sling and tells everyone
about it. He feels that the GivMohr Sling does an excellent job of
holding the arm bone in the shoulder joint. He feels that he is able to
walk better with the GivMohr Sling because he is able to get a good
rhythm going that he cannot get when walking without the sling. He feels
that the GivMohr Sling gives him more control, makes him feel more safe
and he is less likely to fall while wearing it. Thank you for making

"When the sling arrived for my wife and we put it on her, she was so happy she cried. These should be required at ALL stroke rehab facilities. Thank you both for making it available! Cheap at 5 times the price!"
"I walked 16 blocks to and from Magee today. I'm immensely more confident and comfortable when I wear the GivMohr
"The GivMohr Arm Sling
does seem to be helping my husband with the separation of the bones he
is experiencing in his shoulder. He says that the sling is quite
comfortable to wear."
quick email to thank you very much for sending another sling. It arrived
... just as we were being discharged from ... the neuro rehab unit ...
and just in time for the therapist to fit it for us. ... The sling has
made such a difference not only to the way our daughter is able to hold
herself when she walks but also to the comfort of her shoulder.
"This product really helps my dad. It is easy to use and yet at the same
time it does its job. My father has been receiving comments that his
shoulder is no longer droopy. Highly recommended."
"This puts my wife's arm in just the right position."
"The GivMohr Sling
worked excellently for my patient - her subluxation has been reduced,
her arm is in a functional position and she is now able to recruit more
activity around her shoulder independently. It's exactly what I was

"We have found that the GivMohr sling has been the most effective treatment for our clients who have shoulder pain as a result of subluxation of the shoulder due to CVA or TBI. Our clients who
are ambulatory for short distances and were fitted with the sling
(while) standing, kept requesting that we also allow them to wear the sling while seated in their wheelchairs.
They said that "My shoulder pain is gone while it is on--even while I'm seated in the chair". Due to the unique way the sling is designed, the humerus is kept approximated properly in the joint even when the client is
seated, allowing for pain-free use of the extremity."

"I just wanted to let you
know, we ordered a GivMohr sling for one of our patients the week
following the (AOTA) conference. Since using the sling, the patient
presented with increased balance for gait and actually began showing
increased arm movement with decreased subluxation. I enjoyed meeting you
and learning about the GivMohr Sling."

"Thank you soooo much for
what you have done for my step dad... For the first time in 3 years his shoulder
is back in the socket as it should be. They are able to do the exercises needed
for therapy... Thank you for this miracle sling.
It is the first time he has felt comfortable in 3 years. He is actually getting some motion and feeling back also in his arm. Bless you all."
"My wife ... is undergoing outpatient rehabilitation for a
stroke... Last week, her occupational therapist ... fitted her with a GivMohr
sling ... and requested that her physical therapist ... use it during the
physical therapy sessions which she observed. The GivMohr sling not only
improved her posture, preventing her left arm from dangling and pulling out of
the socket, but relieved a great deal of pain from this condition. We are very
anxious to ... employ it into her everyday activities as well as her therapy
"The GivMohr sling holds (his) arm at the right angle. We tried
lots of slings and (this one) was the only one that reduced the subluxation. He
is also able to use his arm a little while in the sling."
"I'm lucky to have an O/T
who understands the value of this great product. (People) who use it ...
rave about the great quality of assistance your sling offers. A lady
happened in yesterday and purchased a replacement sling for her husband who
had a stroke. She said it was really the best device for him as he needs
the hand free to meet and greet."
"My wife used one of your slings a few years ago after suffering
a severe head injury. It helped her regain the ability to walk as it really
helped her gait training. I gave it to the hospital's Occupational Therapy
Department, who had never seen one before, so they could help others use them."
"In October 2002, my husband
Buddy had a massive stroke. The doctors said he would
... "never be the same man I knew
him to be." ... I am very pleased to say that he ... continues to live and function every day. He walks with the help of a quad-cane and wears
the GivMohr Sling on his left arm. While his physical therapist recommended he wear their
sling, it did not give him the support he felt he needed.
"While searching on the internet, we came
across your GivMohr Sling and ordered the first of many in 2003. This sling helps with the
subluxation of the left shoulder which minimized the pain he had been having. Prior to wearing
the GivMohr Sling, he had received cordisone injections to reduce the pain he felt in the left
shoulder and neck. He also believes the GivMohr Sling helps in maintaining his balance;
therefore, improving his gait.
After completing his rehab and wearing the GivMohr Sling daily, Buddy returned to Brooks
Rehab Hospital to visit his therapist(s). He was able to show the physical therapist the GivMohr
Sling and how well it worked for him. The therapist(s) were very impressed with the sling and
how it worked clinically and suggested they would recommend it to other patients.
"Although it is very frustrating at times to have to
wear a sling, Buddy never goes without the GivMohr Sling. He feels the
advantages of wearing it far outweighs the frustration. We can truly say
it has been such an answer to prayer for him. He feels that had he not
found your GivMohr Sling, his rehab would not have been as successful as
it has been and he would not be able to function as well as he does
today. We are glad to send this testimonial letter to you in hopes that
it will be of benefit to your business."
Comments about the GivMohr Bilateral Sling:
"I have ALS. With arm onset, my deltoids atrophied and my arms
pulled against the sockets and my arms became uncomfortable. My OT pointed
me to you guys, and voil�! Problem solved. My legs still work okay, so now I
can enjoy long walks, hikes, and skiing much more comfortably with your
bilateral sling. Thanks for a good job and great design!"
(In addition to using
the GivMohr Bilateral Sling, Creighton Rider has also designed a
product for people with Dropped Head Syndrome.

"My name is Bill R., I am 71 years old and have
had polio since the age of 3. Polio has
damaged muscles in my chest, arm, back, and also caused damage
to my diaphragm. I have searched for years for help with my
pain. I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder. My right arm
is the one with polio. I have tried many different slings in the
past, but the one made by GivMohr Corporation seems to be
working. It has reduced 95% of the pain in my shoulder and the
other 5% is due to arthritis. I am very
thankful and grateful that I have finally found a sling to help."
