Universal in size – one size fits all.
A shoulder immobilizing sling provides the support of an arm sling but adds a strap to immobilize the shoulder joint. A shoulder immobilizer usually comes in different sizes with adjustable straps.
A shoulder sling like this is usually prescribed for clavicle injuries, shoulder sprains, rotator cuff injuries, cast support, and shoulder injuries.
A pediatric arm sling is designed specifically for children.
It is surprising how often children are given adult extra small sizes to support their broken arms, sprained wrists, or shoulder pain. This is not an ideal solution.
Children with orthopedic injuries should be treated with orthopedic splints and braces proportional to their body sizes, not just extra small adults. Also, parents should not be charged “adult prices” for pediatric products.
Emergency rooms and immediate care clinics regularly overcharge for arm slings.
