How to correctly wear the support

The Dynamics Clavicle Support must be correctly fitted to be fully effective.

Note: The Dynamics Clavicle Support should be worn day and night. It should be removed and reattached by a physician. Alternatively, you can do it yourself after consulting your physician. Removing the support incorrectly can lead to fracture misalignments and impaired healing.

Below you can see how to correctly put on the support:

  • To put on the support, open both clip fasteners and undo the straps. Place the support on the shoulders so that the square padding is on your back and the fasteners are pointing downwards.
  • Pull the belt straps backwards underneath your armpits. First secure the belt on the side of the non-injured shoulder. Pull the strap through the clip fastener from behind and close the fastener. Repeat the above process to secure the strap on the injured shoulder. To adjust the straps to achieve optimum support, open both clip fasteners and adjust the straps as required. Then securely fasten the closures.

Key Points

  • The initial fitting and adjustment of the product as well as instructions on its proper and safe use should be provided by trained medical/orthopaedic specialists.
  • The product should be worn directly on the skin. It should only be worn over intact skin. If it is to be worn in combination with other products, please discuss this with your doctor beforehand.
