Better for neck and ulnar nerve pain; great for rotator cuff recovery After rotator cuff surgery, my surgeon fitted me with the DonJoy UltraSling II/III, which was very useful. I found that sling cut into my neck and put my elbow to sleep. My surgeon said as long as I used the abduction pillow (comes with both the II/III and the IV slings) I could get this sling. The IV sling advertises that it reduces neck problems and ulnar nerve (elbow) compression. I found that true. Neck happier, elbow just fine. The strap under my arm didn’t bother me at all. I liked this sling and wore it all the time, as directed by my doctor.

DonJoy UltraSling IV Shoulder Support Sling The sling was MUCH better than the one that was provided to me after the surgery. The addition of the belt under the armpit of the opposite arm is incredibly helpful. The buckle system is much easier to get on and off compared to the simple double velcro system that the provided sling has, which made a huge difference once the frequency of getting in and out of the sling increased.My only gripe with the design is that the forearm was ending up tilted more downward after a bit of wear, tilting the hand down, and making the shoulder feel a little less supported than desired. I played around with the belts to try to change the position of the forearm to be more horizontal, but all I got from doing that is more pressure from the belts all around. This created the need to continue pulling the front belt up to re-adjust the forearm position.Overall, I think it was a good purchase, definitely made a difference in comfort level, which is super important considering…

For getting your hand chopped off, there’s robotics. For everything else, there’s this. You know, for a shoulder surgery by which the hospital got almost $50,000, you’d think that they’d send you home with a better sling than a $10 Wal-Mart special. I put up with it for the first couple of days, but my arm kept slipping out of the sling, it didn’t feel like I was getting proper support at all…and there was no fancy hidden compartment to hide my iLightsabre.Enter this. Sure, I think the Empire should have gone ahead and included this as a free gift for giving their medical staff so much money, and yes, I think over $100 for some cloth is absolutely absurd, but it did exactly what it was supposed to do, and made my recovery much easier. The body pillow that goes between the sling and your stomach was perfect in terms of distance and support, and the little ball they included at the end of the arm cavity was convenient for impromptu exercises.
