Ultrasling III and Ultrasling III AB Shoulder BracesUltrasling® III and Ultrasling® III AB Shoulder Braces

Introduction


The NEW DonJoy Ultrasling® III and Ultrasling® III AB replace the DonJoy Ultrasling® II and Ultrasling® II AB.

The premium quality UltraSling® III series offers breathable, mesh fabric and thermoformed padding for greater comfort and patient compliance. The new breathable and washable design is particularly good if the patient has to undergo longer term rehabilitation. An exercise ball is used to aid in stimulating circulation. The UltraSling® III AB has a large comfortable foam pillow which allows 45º or 60º of abduction. Both provide immobilisation for rotator cuff repairs, capsular shifts, Bankhart repairs, Glenohumeral dislocation/subluxation, and soft tissue strains/repairs. Helps prevent post-operative internal rotation contractures that can occur in a sling.

Indications


• Anterior dislocations
• Initial anterior glenohumeral dislocation/subluxation
• Capsular shifts
• Use after posterior shoulder repair
• Postoperative Bankart procedures
• Soft tissue strains/repairs
• Post operative positioning after release of severe anterior capsule contracture
• Adhesive Capsulitis (release/manipulation)
