Week 4 – Padded Sling

Week 4 and this week we have a patient information video about how to apply and adjust a padded sling.  Padded Slings are frequently for injuries of the upper limb, or following surgery. To ensure maximal comfort it is important that the sling is correctly fitted.  You should take your arm out of the sling every couple of hours to bend and straighten the arm.  This will stop the elbow from becoming stiff.  You should move your wrist and fingers while you are in the sling.
