Why wear this shoulder support?
The Mid 500 shoulder strap supports your joint. It compresses your shoulder while the elasticated strap lets you adjust the level of support. This means that your joint is held in place effectively so that you can carry on doing your sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, badminton, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo) and moving around freely.
Why support and protect your shoulder?
The shoulder joint is used heavily during sports, particularly ones that involve throwing (basketball, handball, volleyball, athletics, etc.) as well as strength sports (crossfit, weight training). Injuries such as tendinitis and sprains can weaken your joints.
Choosing the right shoulder support size
Measure the circumference of arm, at the largest part of your biceps. Then match the measurement taken with the following size chart:
Size 1: 25 - 28 cm
Size 2: 29 - 33 cm
Size 3: 34 - 39cm
