The provider will fit the NextSling to the patient when it is first put on making it very easy for the patient to put on and take off by themselves.
This applies to a patient standing, sitting, or laying down. The Provider Fitting Method also applies when another person provides assistance with putting on the NextSling.
The shoulder straps can be cut to the desired length and the Y-Tab Velcro® piece can be removed and reattached. An abduction pillow can also be worn with the NextSling.
Remove the NextSling by reversing the above steps. Please see the videos below.
The NextSling’s infinite adjustments ensure that a patient’s shoulders, back, arm, wrist, and hand are comfortable, secure, and positioned for maximum recovery.
Adjustments and Rotation for Optimal Recovery and Comfort
Measure the length from the elbow to the webbing of the fingers.
Small: 10-13 inches
Medium: 13-15 inches
Large: 15-19 inches
With all the available adjustments, patients can even switch between sizes for greater or less hand use on the injured limb based on optimal recovery.
