Shoulder brace AS-B is an anatomic-shaped medical device made of CottonFit. CottonFit is an innovative material. It’s 3-layered spacer fabric consisted of elastic spandex, elastic core and cotton layer called CottonPlush. The core’s aim is to improve compression and absorb shocks in joints and muscles during physical activity. The skin has contact with CottonPlush, providing high air permeability and maintaining the skin soft and dry. CottonFit has Oeko-Tex Standard 100, what means that it is neural for skin.
- Shoulder instability can be an result of injury (e.g. dislocation) or other reasons (e.g. joint degeneration). The chronic instability, after shoulder dislocation, is very often. No matter what reason is, the instability is divided into: anterior, posterior, inferior and multidirectional instability. It can cause incarcerated rotator cuff tendons, cotyloid ligament compression, stretching of soft tissues and neve compression. It’s connected with pain, numbness and upper limb muscles weakness.
- There’s a lot of sports predisposed to shoulder instability. There’re especially sports based on throwing (handball, water polo, baseball, basketball, volleyball), but contact sports also (rugby, American Football etc.).
- Shoulder instability, however, must not mean end of the trainings. The fast and effective solution is our shoulder brace AS-B. The brace, providing the compression, supports the joint and prevents against the dislocations and contusions.
Purpose of use:
- shoulder instability
- rotator cuff injury
- tendinopathy of shoulder
- prophylactically in sport.
