Instruction video clip
The following short video gives you helpful tips on care with the abduction cushion, medi SAS 45.
The medi SAS 45 can be used for either the left or the right shoulder.
For post-operative use, the medi SAS 45 orthosis is usually fitted to the patient while they are still in the operating theatre to avoid harmful movements of the operated shoulder when the patient is re-positioned.
This process is possible with the patient lying on their side or on his back.
The product can be set to 30° or 45° abduction.
Instructions for using the medi SAS 45 shoulder abduction cushion
- Once the orthosis has been adjusted properly, you can don the product independently after the operation, depending on the degree of mobility.
- Place the upper or lower arm with the injured shoulder in the open loops and fasten these one at a time.
- Now stand straight and fasten the shoulder strap and the waist belt.
- If necessary, ask for help to avoid harmful movements of the operated shoulder.
- You can wash the orthosis in cold water and mild soap suds and then allow it to air dry.
We hope you will get well soon!!
