- after making all the adjustments my forearm is dropped down past a 90 degree angle. I cant seem to get it to a 90 degree angle.
The straps on that sling can be trimmed to make them shorter, which should lit the sling up.

- I had ORIF surgery and will be in a sling for 12 weeks. How do I choose between an ultrasling II, III or IV? Doctor orders are rotation OK up to neutral.
The only differences betwenn these slings are material and strapping. The Ultrasling II has a cotton material in the sling, we had complaints of it being too hot so the Ultrasling III was made with a mesh materila in the sling for more ventilation. Those two slings have the same strpping over the opposite shoulder across the back to your waist. The Ultrasling IV has the same material as the III but the strapping system is a loop around the opposite shoulder to take pressure off the neck. All fot the slings come with a 15degree abduction pillow and will not rotate you shoulder at all.

- When I measure my arm as described it is 13&3/4 inches but I have a very large upper arm would I need to order a large or extra-large?
the thickness of your arm doesn't matter with the sling, you should order a large
- 11/1/2013 9:24 PM
- Can the sling be washed and if yes how.
All of our braces and supports can be hand washed in a mild detergent and air dried. You can just seperate the sling from the pillow and wash the sling then when it dries attach back on the velcro of the pillow.

Best Post-Rotator Cuff Repair Brace Out ThereBetter than the DonJoy UltraSling III. The strap rests on your opposing shoulder and not on your neck. The abducting pillow/bolster has been improved going from the III to the IV. Most comfortable.
Ultra ComfortableThe Ultrasling IV is very comfortable and well made. Once you get used to putting it on it is very easy and does not put pressure on your neck. The abduction pillow is comfortable and the materials used to hold your arm are breathable and provide support. I've been in it now for three weeks and have no complaints! Highly recommend.
Great product, poor customer service and slow handlingThe Don Joy sling is excellent, much better than Breg.
They have put lots of thought into the Ultrasling IV. Now the bad part, due to the price of the sling my shipping was free. However it took 8 days to get my sling. After ordering, two or three days went by without a shipping confirmation. I called and the guy said, "sir your order has not processed because you selected free shipping." The guy had no empathy that I had surgery and needed this higher quality sling. If you select free shipping they will sit on your order and will not immediately process it. HORRIBLE!!Pros: Sling is awesome and very high qualityCons: Better braces needs to get their customers orders out the door ASAP regardless of shipping method selected.Share Your Usage: Recovering from Injury
Buy this brace for improved recoveryThis is my second rotator cuff surgery in 2 years. The brace provided with the surgery gave me terrible neck pain and accumulated stress in my shoulders. The Donjoy sling design alleviates all this stress and pain. My recovery for my second shoulder is so much much easier and less impactful on my life. I followed fit instructions on website and it fits perfectly. You will not be disappointed.Pros: Comfort.Cons: Less support during sleep.Share Your Usage: Recovering from Injury, Daily Use
Great purchase! Immediate relief from opposite shoulder, neck & back pain that physician supplied brace caused.Took all the pressure off my neck and my opposite shoulder after having rotator cuff surgery. Only thing I'd change is making velcro tab areas/closures a bit softer.
A lifesaver!Purchased a week before rotator cuff repair so that I could get a good fit prior to surgery. Followed the sizing directions for purchase exactly and was able to get a great fit on this short, plus sized body. If you have to wear a brace for an extended length of time, this is the one you want! No cutting into the neck and even distribution of weight.Pros: Comfortable, great fit Able to put on by myself Lots of points for adjustmentCons: Needed to pay for expedited shipping in order to get the sling prior to surgery.Share Your Usage: Preventing Injury, Recovering from Injury
slingThe scratches my back up. you have covers for the front but none for the back and none for the back. I get hot and cannot wear a shirt all the time. Since I am stuck at home I should be able to go without a shirt but can't because your sling scratches me:( The sling is otherwise great.
Much better "harness" system unlike the one from the Dr that chokes you on one side of your neck.It runs a little big. I ordered the large and should have ordered a medium, I did just attach the harness to my original Ultrasling III sling. Very comfortable to wear as well. Worth every dime for a shoulder surgery apparatus.
