WHAT DOES ELBOW DISLOCATION MEAN?
Elbow dislocation is the most common dislocation in children. Sometimes, the dislocated elbow is connected with forearm fracture. Elbow dislocations typically occur when a person falls onto an outstretched hand. When the hand hits the ground, the force is sent to the elbow. Usually, there is a turning motion in this force. This can drive and rotate the elbow out of its socket.
An elbow dislocation should be considered an emergency injury. These kind of injuries are treated by keeping the elbow immobile in a cast plaster or sling for 2 weeks, followed by early motion exercises. For professional elbow immobilization you will need special child arm sling AM-SOB-03.
WHAT IS CHILD ARM SLING AM-SOB-03/AIR?
Our arm child sling AM-SOB-03/AIR immobilizes elbow perfectly. It should be used for conservative treatment and after surgery. The sling is anatomic shaped and keeps the elbow in therapeutical flexion.
AM-SOB-03/AIR is made of the highest quality mesh material, which is 100% breathable and skin-friendly. The use of mesh material in the product will allow you to maintain optimal hygiene of your child’s skin, especially in the summer, and will make wearing the sling every day comfortable.
MeshSpace™ is a very strong polyester material that we use in orthopedic products, where high strength of the detail is required, combined with a very small thickness. This raw material is produced by knitting from a very large number of thin, but very strong polyamide yarns. It has an original mesh structure with large openings, which makes it very light, very strong and very airy. An orthopedic device made of this material is neutral for the patient's skin, because no chemicals containing formaldehyde were used during the production of MeshSpace™. In addition, thanks to the fact that the product made of this material has the form of a thin mesh, fresh air successfully reaches the protected limb of the patient and sweat migrates from the skin. The MeshSpace™ material is another example of Reh4Mat's application of the following principle in the production philosophy of its products: Mini Max - minimum product / maximum effect.
Unlike some other slings, our sling AM-SOB-03/AIR has special arm strap which does not put the pressure on the neck. The strap has a shoulder pad, made of SoftComfort™, so that the child-size arm sling does not irritate the shoulder and neck.
SoftComfort™ - a material specially designed to relieve very delicate places on the patient's body. The cover knit used in the production is made in such a way that it can come into contact with very sensitive skin. This raw material has the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate and complies with the European REACH standard. The structure of the material consists of a very soft comfort foam laminated with a delicate cover knit. The fabric has a perforation that facilitates the flow of air through the material and allows the skin to breathe. The SoftComfort™ material is perfect for the production of linings relieving the rigid and inflexible elements of orthopedic orthoses.
Thumb loop, that is used in the sling, prevents the wrist from dropping or dangling out the end of the sling for kids. This loop also helps keep the arm in its proper position and relieve strain on the wrist, forearm and hands.
