Your All-In-One Backpack
The NextSling® is the all-in-one backpack shoulder sling designed by medical experts to immobilize the shoulder, eliminate the strain on the neck, and distribute the weight of an injured limb for improved patient recovery, rehabilitation, comfort, and ease of use. How easy is the NextSling to use; simply slip it over your head, adjust, and start recovering.
Your Storage, Your Style, Your Shoulder Sling
The SlingSlip® is the innovative storage and fashion accessory that transforms your shoulder sling into a stylish and convenient interior storage option for your phone, keys, and other items. It is wearable with a wide variety of shoulder slings and can replace a purse or carrying bag.
Over the Shoulders
Eliminates the strain on the neck through equal load distribution to the shoulders and back.
Ease of use with putting on, taking off, and switching shoulders.
Secures the patient’s arm from slipping and prevents typical thumb compression.
Distributes the load better across the back and shoulders, secures the sling to the body, and stabilizes the arm and shoulder.
Unlimited adjustments to ensure that the shoulders, back, arm, wrist, and hand are comfortable, secure, and positioned for maximum recovery.
Reduces the chance of developing bursitis in the elbow, which results from long-term traditional sling use.
Right or Left
Universal right or left side fit for ease of use and improved inventory management.
Decreases tension on the repair, positions the arm optimally, and can be used for rotator cuff surgery.
The Perfect Fit
Adjustments For Optimal Recovery and Comfort
The NextSling® allows for unlimited adjustments to ensure that a patient’s shoulders, back, arm, wrist, and hand are comfortable, secure, and positioned for maximum recovery. With all the available adjustments, patients can switch between sizes for greater or less hand use on the injured limb based on optimal recovery.
Abduction & Rotation
Optimal Shoulder Positioning
The NextSling® abducts and rotates the arm at multiple angles utilizing the adjustable components, shoulder harness, and abduction pillow to ensure maximum recovery and comfortability. With all the NextSling adjustable components, you can remove the shoulder strap on the injured arm for additional rotation and still receive the benefits of the NextSling backpack system.

Many thanks to NextSling for providing me with at opportunity to review their excellent product!!
As an orthopedic surgeon in private practice I have had the opportunity to use a large variety of the slings commonly available, and I routinely have to apply or adjust slings for patients I’ve treated. Many patients complain about their slings following shoulder injuries or surgery. One super frequent complaint is rubbing of the sling around the neck area. The NextSling completely negates this with use of a back and shoulder harness which is also much more supportive and comfortable. Weight is distributed more evenly across both shoulders.
Another complaint is difficulty putting the sling on or adjusting the position of the sling. The NextSling has easily adjusted straps and buckles, and has a color coded system to assist with quick application.
There are other niceties such as extra padding inside the sling under the elbow region and a removable foam pillow portion.
Overall an EXCELLENT product!!! Quick disclaimer/disclosure. I had not heard of the NextSling until seeing their product on social media and I have no involvement with their product. My views are my own after personally trying out their product! Please give their site a visit @NextSling or website NextSling.com.”

The provider will fit the NextSling to the patient when it is first put on making it very easy for the patient to put on and take off by themselves.
