A. Measure based on arm length
1. For best results, the garment should be worn over a piece of clothing. Unfasten all closures and adjustments.
2. Position the arm inside the sling over the ribs so that the elbow is flexed approximately 90 degrees and the top edge of the sling is right below the breast line. Insert the thumb through the loop in the sling.
3. Fasten the shoulder strap and adjust for comfort.
4. Fasten the back strap (swathe) snugly. When properly applied, the shoulder immobilizer should comfortably cradle the arm and should not interfere with normal respiration.
