The Arm Slings works by immobilising the arm and shoulder by raising the arm and restricting its movement. The arm sits within a material based sling attached to a strap which loops round the patient’s neck to help elevate the arm. The strap can be adjusted manually depending on the patient’s height and arm length, but a professional will always set this before you leave the hospital to ensure that it is fitted accurately.

A neck brace , also known as a cervical collar, is a medical device used to support a person’s neck. It is also used by emergency personnel for those who have had traumatic head or neck injuries, and can be used to treat chronic medical conditions.
Neck Braces are commonly used by patients who had a surgical intervention of the cervical spine to immobilize the neck. It is also used for the treatment against neck pain, which can be caused by an acute trauma or chronic neck pain. For example after a whiplash injury, the neck collar will be used for both immobilization and to reduce pain. Although the value of the collar over early active mobilizations is being questioned, early mobilizations should give a greater improvement in cervical range of motion and in the reduce of pain after a whiplash injury.

Soft collar: Soft collars are made out of felt. They are cut to mould around the neck and jaw of the patient, the size should be adjusted to the patient. These collars don’t completely immobilize the neck, they restrict motion and mostly remind the patient of excessive motions (Kinesthetic Reminder). Since the collar is under the chin and supports the chin, it minimizes muscle contraction needed against the gravity forces to keep the head in a normal position .
