It might be a dislocation you're recovering from, a damaged rotator cuff or you've had surgery and need to rest the shoulder joint. Whatever the reason, wearing a shoulder sling is often crucial to recovery of the joint and long-term health of your shoulder.
The best way to make sure you're taken care of and have the best recovery, is to use a shoulder sling that keeps the joint stable no matter your movement. This is where Bauerfeind comes in. With decades of research in shoulder bracing and the highest standards of clinical testing in the world, we've got you (and your shoulder) covered.
Why should I choose these over a cheap fabric sling?
Apart from the clinical and medical benefits both long and short-term, there's one distinct difference, comfort. Cheap fabric slings from the chemist tend to pinch at the shoulder and cause neck pain, hindering as much as they help. Bauerfeind's slings are anatomically designed to sit comfortably on the body without loading the rest of the body.
Can I wear these after surgery?
Bauerfeind's range is not only made for surgeons, it's partially designed by them. Taking consultation from Europe's leading orthopaedic surgeons and specialists, they're ideal for recovery, supporting and stabilising where needed and allowing the rest of the arm and shoulder to breathe and recover properly.
Can I still exercise while wearing this?
One of the huge benefits of Bauerfeind's shoulder sling is how much it supports the arm no matter the movement. You can go for a long hike, run on the treadmill, try some leg presses or even single arm weights, all without worrying that the arm will move. Our shoulder sling keeps your limb snug and stable while the rest of you moves freely
