The Arm-Shoulder Trainer counter-balance arm sling supports the arm and will provide functional assistance during muscle re-education for patients with impairment or paresis of the shoulder muscles, cervical spine injuries, shoulder nerve injuries, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis and certain forms of rheumatoid arthritis. The arms can be supported and exercised individually. It can be used as a passive support for training in ADL activities, eating skills, grooming, etc. It can also be used as a resistive exercise device.
The sling support cross bar can be adjusted to provide more distal support to the hand to assist in reach extension, or proximal to the shoulder to assist with shoulder lift.
The arm swing distance may be restricted to control elbow flexion and extension. The distance for internal and external shoulder flexion and extension may also be restricted as needed.
The adjustable weights provide multiple increments for correct assistance as well as resistance to the deltoids, making the patient utilize what strength they have in these muscles. Provides proximal support to the shoulder for exercising and assists in functional reaching activities.
Telescoping shoulder width adjustment and telescoping arm length adjustment for proper body alignment. Dual horizontal pulley wheels provide smooth transitioning during internal and external movements.
