Measuring For The Shoulder Support Brace
This is the brace I used after my shoulder surgery in 2014. I had a rotator cuff repair, acromioplasty and biceps tendonesis. Quite an experience. I talk about having to sleep in a recliner for many months and found this u-shaped neck pillow to be the best. I had initially used a brace they provided which was very big and bulky. Fine for the first week or so, but when in recovery mode, I switched to this brace (abduction) and found it much more comfortable, airy, lightweight, good quality and much easier to work with due to it’s simple design. It does not look like some of these other ones that appear like you have a huge mechanical arm, but it is way less expensive than others that cost hundreds, and it made my rehab & daily activities easier.
