Sully Shoulder Brace Application Guide

1st - Applying the Sully Shoulder Support
Step 1 Step 2 Finished Wrap

Place the involved arm in the sleeve of the Sully. Attach the hook and loop strap snugly just above the elbow.


 

Hold the garment in place while the athlete pushes the arm down into the Sully to assure good contact between the neoprene and the skin.
Close the garment using the hook and loop closure under the opposite arm to provide a comfortable but snug fit.

2nd - Strap Configuration

Choose from:

  • Anterior instabilities

  • Multi-directional instabilities

  • Inferior instabilities

  • Posterior instabilities

  • Rotator cuff deceleration

  • Muscle strains

Anterior Shoulder Instabilities
Stap A Strap B Finished Wrap

Shoulder Rotator cuff deceleration

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of the bifurcated (split) strap to the Sully on the posterior and lateral aspect of the involved arm.  Pull the lower strap (A) under the axilla, behind the back and over the opposite shoulder.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Put the upper portion of the bifurcated strap (B) under the axilla, behind the back and around to the front of the body.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.
Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.

 

Multi-directional instabilities
Stap A Strap B Finished Wrap

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of one 4" strap (A) to the medial and posterior aspect of the involved arm.  Pull the strap superiorly just distal to the acromion process.  Bring the strap across the chest then around to the back.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of the second 4" strap (B) to the medial and anterior aspect of the arm.  Pull the strap superiorly and laterally just distal to the acromion process.  Bring the strap across the back then around to the front of the chest.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.

 

Inferior instabilities
Stap A Strap B Finished Wrap

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of one 4" strap (A) to the medial and posterior aspect of the arm.  Sprial the strap around to the front of the arm, then under the axilla.  Bring the strap across the chest then around to the back.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of the second 4" strap (B) to the medial and anterior aspect of the arm.  Spiral the strap around to the back of the arm, then under the axilla.  Pull the strap up and over the acromioclavicular joint.  Bring the strap across the back then around to the front of the body.  Cut the strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.

 

Posterior instabilities
  Finished Wrap

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of one 4" strap to the lateral and anterior aspect of the arm.  Pull the strap down under the axilla, then over the posterior and superior aspects of the humeral head.  Bring the strap across the chest, then around to the back.  Cut the strap to length and secure the hook and loop closure.

Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.

 

Rotator cuff deceleration
  Finished Wrap

Position the athlete's arm in an externally rotated position.  Attach the fixed hook and loop end of the 4" strap to the posterior aspect of the athlete's arm.  Pull the strap up and over the acromioclavicular joint.  Bring the strap across the back.  Then around to the front of the body.  Cut strap to length and secure with hook and loop closure.

Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.

 

Muscle strains
  Finished Wrap

Attach the fixed hook and loop end of one 4" strap to the medial and posterior aspect of the involved arm.  Pull the strap superiorly just distal to the acromion process.  Bring the strap across the chest then around to the back.  Cut strap to length and secure hook and loop closure.

Check for desired levels of mobility and stability.  Adjust straps as needed.
 

For Best Results:

  • Start with the athlete's arm in the position shown in the diagram.  For most wraps, this will be the hands-on-hips position.  Modify the starting position as desired to increase or decrease stabilization or assistance.
  • Keep the straps taut during application and adjust tension levels as necessary.
  • Move the fixed hook and loop end of the strap closer to the elbow when higher levels of stabilization are desired.  Move the fixed hook and loop end of the strap closer to the shoulder for lighter support or to allow increased mobility.

Be Creative:  The Sully can be custom-fit for each application.  Tailor the wrapping process to the needs of the athlete.
