Generally the sling is worn for 3 weeks. During this time you should wear your sling 100% of the time (including sleeping) unless you are doing your exercises, taking a shower, or sitting comfortably. For example if you are watching television on the sofa you may take your sling off and rest your arm in a comfortable position or if your wish to type on a computer or write you may sit at a desk, take your sling off, rest your arm on the desk and type or write. However, when you are up and walking even if in the house, it is safest to use your sling to avoid any inadvertent injury (i.e. fall, sudden motions)
If you are having trouble wearing your sling please contact COG.
