Subluxation Brace Comparison Chart

Other Shoulder Subluxation Slings:

  • Have complicated strapping, making it difficult to put on correctly
  • Create a heavy, unnatural load across the ipsilateral upper trapezius and/or contralateral axillary region with the straps over the other words, they hurt your neck and shoulders
  • Support the subluxation primarily in standing, leaving the shoulder unsupported when sitting
  • Force the wrist to be in significant extension that can be painful
  • Lack adjustability for management of various size subluxations, edema/hand sizes or spasticity changes making it uncomfortable to wear for longer periods of time
  • Ignore the distal hemiparetic arm and only support the glenohumeral shoulder subluxation (Thus requiring a second device for the hand)
  • Pull the shoulder into internal rotation, promoting an anterior subluxation in addition to the existing inferior subluxation

The LuxArm Shoulder Subluxation Brace's Revolutionary Advancements:

  • Offers support for the shoulder from below the elbow rather than from above or at an angle
  • Distributes the weight of a paretic arm over bilateral hips, close to the center of gravity in our bodies
  • Provides therapeutic, ergonomic and adjustable positioning for the shoulder, wrist and fingers in ONE unique total arm device
  • Accommodates changes in arm tone with the circular pin connector, which allows for a small but healthy range of elbow flexion/extension and shoulder internal/external rotation
  • Accommodates changes in hand spasticity with the customizable and durable aluminum core in the forearm piece - the wrist and fingers can flex/extend at any degree and the forearm can supinate for equal muscle balance
  • Allows ergonomic positioning of the humeral head in the glenohumeral joint with the angled connection joint and sliding forearm track
  • Permits changes in individual body shapes with its dual waist sizing features and malleable belt
  • Adjusts to fit any size shoulder subluxation with a sturdy vertical sliding track
  • Maintains comfortable and consistent support while sitting, ambulating and during transitional positions with soft padding and elastic Velcro strapping & brings the arm into better line of vision for improved awareness/attention
  • Exposes the shoulder to allow for simultaneous use of other treatment interventions (e-stim, taping, TENS, etc.)
  • Empowers one-handed belt tightening/loosening and whole system removal with the quick release ratchet buckle
  • Promotes functional training exercises and therapy needs with the ability to separate the forearm and belt component in just seconds using the locking rubberized ball mechanism
