This is a great immobilizer. It certainly keeps you from being able to move your arm but I like the fact that you can take a strap off and just use it as a sling. The balance of having straps over both shoulders is nice. It's fairly comfortable. The only thing that would make it better would be to put some padding on the shoulder straps.
Had shoulder surgery and the cheap post op sling provided by hospital didn't fit properly.
I looked at all reviews and this one seemed to offer all the answers. I will not intend on attacking any reviewers (they offered assistance to me before purchase) but will clarify some of the statements.
Good.... this sling offers amazing support. It pulls your arm in close to your body so it does not swing out when you lean forward (say to get up from a chair). the velcro adjustments land up front so you can adjust how high your arm is on the fly. The dual shoulder straps relieve strain from only one side and let both shoulders share the load. The Swathe can be used or not. I used it all of the time at first but over time only used it for sleeping. (it also creates a "pocket" up front to hold your cell phone :-) It is very well padded to keep you from needing to add extra padding for a full day of sling use.
This Breg Sling was perfect for me. I had a torn ligament under my right shoulder. It was very painful! The sling and swath held my arm tight to my body. No movement. This prevented me from pulling my torn ligament so it could heal. I was able to move around my house and do things with my left arm without having to support my right arm under my own power. This is so important. Injuries need to be stabilized. My arm is nearly healed now. Another thing: The swath that comes with this sling is vital. It's the source that kept my arm from flopping/jarring. Also, the harness is so much better than a one-strap-sling. There was NO yanking or tugging around my neck. Breg is the most comfortable sling/swath I've ever used. (And also let me say that Amazon was just terrific about getting my much needed HELP to me. Everything was packaged tight and strong. And the product--the one I have--is made well. I used it 24/7 for two months and it's still in great shape. I slept in mine. That's just how...
