Shoulder Cuff Kit

We are currently developing a new item to help prevent or reduce subluxation. It may be used following Cerebral Insult or Bracial Plexus Lesion. The Cuff is intended to be worn when transferring, sitting, standing and walking. A major feature of the Cuff is that it allows for the arm to be externally rotated.

  • Saves Therapist’s valuable time.
  • Lightweight.
  • Fully washable.
  • Aesthetically pleasing.
  • May be worn under/over clothing.
  • Special foam padding on arm and shoulder pads to help prevent slipping.
  • Large, medium and small sizes available (most women require the small size).
  • Reinforced shoulder pad will not stretch.


Fully Adjustable:

  • Once the shoulder cuff kit has been correctly fitted, the pieces should be fixed by sewing to make the cuff non-adjustable. This ensures correct day to day application. After fitting, mark Velcro straps to correct adjustment.

  • The strap that passes under the opposite axilla is adjustable front and back. Make size adjustments at the back to allow easy fastening across the chest.

  • Axilla cushion may be removed or cut to fit.

  • To assist in the education of client and Carer, please note the fitting instructions which may be attached to hospital bedheads or given to the carer.
