Joint protection of a weak or paralysed arm and hand is important for stroke survivors. The use of a sling brings the arm and hand closer to one’s body and prevents it from striking objects within the environment and further injuring it.
Following a stroke or injury, it is not uncommon for muscle loss to occur. Any resulting weakness or paralysis can lead to further joint injury or deformities if adequate protective measures are not taken. With a foam protector, one can minimize the risk of developing contractures.
