Good as a backup to hospital version. Can get comfy after longer breakin, perhaps. If needed could definitely fill in for a longer timeframe.

I ordered this for my BF one week after his rotator cuff repair surgery. This sling is so much better than what they send you home from the hospital with. He felt instant relief, and actually was able to sleep in the bed for the first time since surgery. It's definitely a game changer! Having the abduction pillow allows for the proper alignment and does not put stress on the shoulder. Thank you so much for a quality sling that is easy to put on one handed.
Thank you very much for this glowing feedback!! We are happy to have you as a customer :) -Carolina- Vive Health CS

Much better than the one they gave me at the ER. And much less expensive than the one they would have sold me at the doctor's office.
We appreciate the five star ratings and for the great feedback for our Shoulder Abduction Sling. Should you have any further questions, please let us know and we are here to help. Thanks for being a Vive Health customer. Best Regards, Aileen of Vive Health CS.
