A Colorful Take on Shoulder Rehab
The new Sling-Ki by Alpha Physical Therapy was designed by a PT who rehabs orthopedic patients after shoulder surgery—such as the type experienced by manual wheelchair propellers. With that kind of rehab in mind, Sling-Ki features a silicone strap that won’t slide or dig into the skin, thereby reducing the risk of pressure hot spots. And because Sling-Ki’s inventor understands the importance of client compliance, she offers the sling with a cell phone pocket and in different fabric patterns and colors, to make clients feel better about wearing it.
