– The positioning of the forearm (bent at an approximate right angle in the elbow joint) in the sling
– Guide the bandage over the shoulder of the healthy side and diagonally across the back, forward between the upper arm of the injured side and the chest; afterward circular around the chest, once again forward between the upper arm of the injured side and the chest
– Wrap the remaining part of the bandage around the upper arm in the rear, and close through fixation of the Velcro element on the part of the banding running across the back
Avoid torsion of the bandage. Ensure correct size adjustment.
