Losing the use of one or your arms is a nuisance that nobody ever wants to face. You only appreciate what you had once it’s gone, but not having the functionality of a second arm poses a whole lot of more challenges than the loss of a favourite pair of shoes, for example. Those that must persist through the recovery process quickly realise that unless protected their weakened arm is constantly at risk. As such, an elevation sling becomes a necessary item to bring both comfort, safety and a sense of protection.
Here at Aged Care Store, our focus is on bringing high-quality solutions to those in need at the best prices in the market. While we tailor our product selection toward the elderly and those enduring debilitating conditions, many of our products also benefit those of a much younger vintage who find their freedoms of movement and independence compromised as a result of workplace accidents or otherwise.
We strongly believe in delivering a personalised service to each and every one of our customers, and as such for those that browse our site searching for something specific that we do not have, we encourage you to get in touch because we will be able to source it for you. Our network of business partners spans the globe, and this enables us to deliver the most comprehensive range of assistive products and solutions available to the Australian market.
The Importance of Supporting Your Arm
Without an elevation sling, those that have undergone surgery, or have had a recent injury treated will find that they have very little comfort. The sling is there to support the arm while it recovers and keeps it in a position that ensures that it is adjusted at an appropriate height while being worn and is not in any immediate danger of incurring further harm, assuming the person wearing it takes precautions as they move about.
Those that follow the guidelines correctly as given by their doctor can expect things to gradually improve over time. The absence of the sling will likely only promote further problems, including aches, pains and discomfort. For those that are recovering from a shoulder injury, if the arm is slinging from the body like a dead weight, this can put a strain on the damaged muscles or joints or bones, which can limit the healing process and could potentially lead to complications.
The sling has been tried, tested and is trusted by millions of people every year for one simple reason; it is an effective way to carry your injured limb during the recovery process to ensure that once you are back in full working condition, there is no knock-on effect suffered that will require further treatment.
