My Pain Was Immediately Relieved
“The NextSling has changed the way I think about rehab and recovery. I was in constant pain with my initial sling because no matter what I did, I could not keep my shoulder still and had constant neck strain. Two days after surgery, I switched to the NextSling and my pain was immediately relieved and I was able to sleep better. The NextSling ensured my shoulder was still, eliminated the strain on my neck, and made me all around more comfortable. I wholeheartedly believe that I owe much of my initial rehab success to the NextSling.
With everything that goes into shoulder surgery, I can’t believe how much impact and improvement a shoulder sling can make. Thank you so much NextSling for creating a product that improves patients’ lives and for providing unmatched customer service.”
What Makes NextSling Different
Over The Shoulders
Right or Left
Some of the more common complaints that we receive with traditional slings include: cervical and scapular pain from the single cervical strap, skin discomfort from the fabric of the sling, difficulty aligning the straps when removing or putting on the sling and reports of the arm slipping forward in the sling leading to hand and wrist pain. The NextSling has taken these factors into consideration with their design.
The NextSling uses a harness versus a neck strap which keeps with cervical spine and scapulae in a more comfortable neutral alignment. The material is breathable which decreases skin discomfort. The NextSling buckles are color coded which makes it easier for patients to re-apply the sling after removing for showering or exercise. The NextSling also incorporates a biceps cuff which addresses the problems of sling malalignment. Both patients and physical therapists have reported to me their satisfaction with the NextSling over more traditional sling designs.”
Many thanks to NextSling for providing me with an 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 NextSling is complimented by the SlingSlip, which has two added features: 1) it temporarily can replace your purse! I carried my travel wallet and keys in the SlingSlip, and 2) it provides a colorful stylish slip that adorns the sling!”
