Our Arm Sling from Oppo Medical help to support and immobilize the arm. It will provide comfortable support for a broken, or sprained arm and is also suitable for post-surgical support. An extra strap provides further stabilization to the body and the arm.
The shoulder joint contains the glenohumeral joint, acromioclavicular joint, sternoclavicular joint and also the scapulothoracic joint, which is technically not a real joint. The bony structures include the humerus, scapula, and clavicle. Soft tissue includes muscles, for instance, the rotator cuff muscles (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Subscapularis, and Teres Minor), several ligaments as well as the coracohumeral, coracoclavicular (trapezoid and conoid), and coracoacromial ligament and others, bursas, brachial plexus nerve, and labrum.
The shoulder joint is not only the most active joint, but it is also the most complicated body joint. The capsule and ligament act as stabilizers, whereas the muscles and also the tendons, play a dynamic role. Rhythmic unity of the shoulder joints ensures the smooth movement in any direction.
