Since there is little use of muscle and ligament while having medical treatment with a plaster cast, the patient should get proper exercises for recovery after removing the cast. Recovery Arm Sling is a medical appliance which is designed for not only functioning as an ordinary arm sling, but also operating as a recovery device after the cast treatment. The upper side of each ring has a structure which enables to lengthen the band, functioning like the safety belt of an ordinary car. This structure allows the patient to hang the arm sling on the neck easily and also to get some repeating recovery exercises.
