Does exactly what it says on the tin.
on 28 June 2012
Ordered this product after needing more ability to use my right arm following a Level 2 Shoulder Separation. Have been in a sling for 2 weeks and was getting very frustrated about being one handed which being right handed and my right shoulder being slumped and in pain was frustrating.
The pain is significantly reduced as this support holds my shoulder where it should be (before, it was slightly slumped meaning the joint between collarbone and shoulder was extended causing significant pain.) Hoping that within another week I may be able to come off the Horse Pill painkillers and start a more normal life pattern.
Applying this support is easier than expected, by laying the support across my shoulder and then passing the "tether" band across my back was simple and fairly pain free. The amount of Velcro is occasionally a nuisance as the entire support will stick to it but provides excellent grip to ensure it doesn't slacken in use.
I do feel a little like RoboCop on my right side in use and describe it to my friends as being like Spartacus, but without the pecks or six-pack!
Overall an excellent product which I can see will be used for any strenuous activity long after recovery from this injury.
