Custom Slings for suspension
We offer custom-made arm slings for suspension for special needs children who have difficulty moving or lifting their arms. We have used these for many months on our own daughter and have had great success. We had so many requests for these that we decided to offer them here and donate the proceeds to an SMA charity. You can see some of our images of the arm slings in use by clicking here Nora's slings. The freedom they offer to an SMA child is unlike anything you have seen before. The slings will enable your child to interact with objects in a entirely new, yet successful way.
We have many different styles to choose from. Each uses the same high-quality fleece and Velcro, so the differences are purely aesthetic. The slings are designed to wrap around the wrist or forearm. They are 8" long and completely adjustable even for the smallest child. The strapping that is included will allow the arm to suspend up to 32" from the support system above.
Our newest product, this is similar to the arm sling design except they are much larger, re-enforced and that have a slip system to allow the legs to move in additional ways. Instead of the twill being anchored to the sling itself, it is looped around a heavy-duty piece of twill that allows it to move in additional ways. We have many different styles to choose from. The slings are designed to wrap around the knee or the upper calf muscle. They are 8" long and completely adjustable even for the smallest child. The strapping that is included will allow the arm to suspend up to 32" from the support system above.

We have tried a number of clamps but these clamps are the smallest and yet the strongest we tested. From the first day we used these, we knew we had found the perfect clamp.
