This 3 point harness sling replaced an over-the-neck sling by another company that I was given at surgery. What an astounding difference in comfort! No longer is my neck supporting the weight of my arm, my torso is. And I don't have the irritating heat and pressure of the neck strap of the other sling to contend with. It is a great improvement and worth every cent. Given that a sling has to be worn for 6 weeks after rotator cuff surgery, I think these slings should be the new standard of care as they will promote compliance in sling use because of their comfort. Furthermore, though I got my order in past noon, I still received it in the expedited time I requested. My thanks to the Brace Shop for providing a superior product as well as excellent service!
I second the first review. This sling design rocks. Like her I had rotator cuff surgery and I woke up with a flimsy single support point sling. Yes it did the job, but the strap constantly rode up my shoulder to the neck area and pulled the neck of my shirt. WIth the Slingshot 3 there are no issues like this. The sling is easy to adjust and once set up the quick release makes it easy to put it on on off. I wish I would have brought this sling with me to my surgery and not had to deal with the one the hospital gave me. While you are at it, pick up the Breg Ice Cube or similar cold therapy machine as they are a godsend.
Hard to add to the previous reviews...my experience was exactly the same following rotator cuff surgery. One big plus for me was that I was forced to sleep on my back with our bed inclined (not my normal habit) and the Slingshot 3 was comfortable enough to keep my arm in a fixed position and allow me to sleep undisturbed. The Brace Shop and its customer support staff were outstanding to deal with! Highly recommended product and dealer!
This brace is such an improvement over the traditional sling, that it makes you wonder why more surgeons don't know about and use it. It uses an elegant design and simply shifts the load to the opposite shoulder instead of accross the neck. If you're having rotator cuff surgery or any condition that requires a sling that holds the worked on shoulder to be supported and keep it at a certain angle (determined by your doctor), this is the brace for you. Less pain and discomfort.
