The available shoulder bandages are made of high quality materials which are gentle on the skin. The selection includes shoulder bandages in different variations, sizes and colours. Read on here at the end of this page.
Shoulder Bandages - When Are They Used?
Shoulder bandages are used when the shoulder joint needs to be stabilized or immobilized. There are many different reasons for this, as the shoulder is a very complex joint. As a ball-and-socket joint, it offers a wide range of motion and is connected to numerous muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Due to its complexity, the shoulder is prone to injuries or wear and tear due to excessive or improper stress in everyday life, work, and sports.
Shoulder straps made of flexible neoprene are therefore used both to support the healing of injuries and for their prevention. Overexertion from improperly performed exercises or heavy lifting at work can lead to irritations and even inflammations. A shoulder bandage can help the stressed tissue to recover. Incorrect postures that can lead to joint problems in the long run can be corrected by wearing a strap.
During the rehabilitation period after shoulder surgery, the strap supports the healing process. Shoulder bandages may also be medically prescribed for wear in cases of wear and tear such as osteoarthritis or diseases like rheumatism. Shoulder straps made of soft materials like neoprene provide relief and stabilization for shoulder pain and tension. They even help maintain the mobility of the arm and fingers. The straps can be comfortably worn for extended periods of time.
In the case of acute muscle injuries, tendon tears, or dislocation of the shoulder joint, rigid shoulder orthoses are used. Such shoulder injuries can be complicated and prolonged, requiring the immobilization of the joint. Orthoses are orthopedic aids such as splints, braces, and similar support devices for stabilizing limbs and preventing pain.
Shoulder orthoses are bandages equipped with additional splints and molded cushions. Depending on the design, they can be used to completely immobilize the shoulder area or the entire arm including the elbow and wrist. They can also be used after fractures and other injuries to the upper and lower arm bones.
The use of shoulder straps and orthoses can contribute to relief for the following conditions:
- chronic shoulder irritations
- post-traumatic conditions
- post-operative conditions
- pre-operative indications
- immobilization of the shoulder area
- support for osteoarthritis
- various shoulder pain and complaints
- correction of postural issues
Consult your doctor or therapist before purchasing a shoulder bandage or shoulder orthosis. It is very important that the bandage fits perfectly. Many models have strap systems for individual adjustment. With practice, most shoulder straps available can be put on and taken off without assistance. Order shoulder bandages now!

Different Types of Shoulder Straps
Shoulder straps exist in different variations as there are many different reasons that require the stabilization or immobilization of the shoulder joint. The type needed depends on how securely and in what position the shoulder and upper arm need to be immobilized or fixed. Commonly, there are variants in which the forearm remains movable or is fixed in a sling or brace in front of the body.
Abduction Orthoses and Cushions
In some shoulder injuries, it is necessary to immobilize the arm abducted next to the body. In this case, so-called abduction cushions or abduction orthoses are used. These are cushion pads that are attached to the shoulder and trunk with straps and serve as support for the forearm. This allows the arm to be positioned with an abduction (outward movement) of 30 to 45 degrees. This form of immobilization of the shoulder joint is often used in the pre- or postoperative setting.
Special Backpack Bandages: Clavicle Brace
Clavicle braces are a type of shoulder strap known as backpack bandages. This special type of shoulder strap is worn like a backpack and is individually adjusted to the body and shoulder area with padded straps. They provide a high level of comfort and can also be worn easily at night. The backpack bandage is used, among other things, to stabilize a broken collarbone. The brace enforces proper posture by pulling back and fixing the shoulders. This ensures that the collarbone does not heal too short after clavicle fractures. Generally, adults need to wear the brace for three to four weeks, with regular checks of the backpack bandage's correct positioning, especially in the beginning.
