Comments about the GivMohr Sling:
"Richard loves the GivMohr Sling and tells everyone
about it. He feels that the GivMohr Sling does an excellent job of
holdingt the arm bone in the shoulder joint. He feels that he is able to
walk better with the GivMohr Sling because he is able to get a good
rhythm going that he cannot get when walking without the sling. He feels
that the GivMohr Sling gives him more control, makes him feel more safe
and he is less likely to fall while wearing it. Thank you for making

"When the sling arrived for my wife and we put it on her, she was so happy she cried. These should be required at ALL stroke rehab facilities. Thank you both for making it available! Cheap at 5 times the price!"
"I walked 16 blocks to and from Magee today. I�m immensely more confident and comfortable when I wear the GivMohr
"The GivMohr Arm Sling
does seem to be helping my husband with the separation of the bones he
is experiencing in his shoulder. He says that the sling is quite
comfortable to wear."
quick email to thank you very much for sending another sling. It arrived
... just as we were being discharged from ... the neuro rehab unit ...
and just in time for the therapist to fit it for us. ... The sling has
made such a difference not only to the way our daughter is able to hold
herself when she walks but also to the comfort of her shoulder.
"This product really helps my dad. It is easy to use and yet at the same
time it does its job. My father has been receiving comments that his
shoulder is no longer droopy. Highly recommended."
"This puts my wife's arm in just the right position."
"The GivMohr Sling
worked excellently for my patient - her subluxation has been reduced,
her arm is in a functional position and she is now able to recruit more
activity around her shoulder independently. It's exactly what I was
Rebecca, Physio (UK)
"We have found that the GivMohr sling has been the most effective treatment for our clients who have shoulder pain as a result of subluxation of the shoulder due to CVA or TBI. Our clients who
are ambulatory for short distances and were fitted with the sling
(while) standing, kept requesting that we also allow them to wear the sling while seated in their wheelchairs.
They said that "My shoulder pain is gone while it is on--even while I'm seated in the chair". Due to the unique way the sling is designed, the humerus is kept approximated properly in the joint even when the client is
seated, allowing for pain-free use of the extremity."

"I just wanted to let you
know, we ordered a GivMohr sling for one of our patients the week
following the (AOTA) conference. Since using the sling, the patient
presented with increased balance for gait and actually began showing
increased arm movement with decreased subluxation. I enjoyed meeting you
and learning about the GivMohr Sling."

"Thank you soooo much for
what you have done for my step dad... For the first time in 3 years his shoulder
is back in the socket as it should be. They are able to do the exercises needed
for therapy... Thank you for this miracle sling.
It is the first time he has felt comfortable in 3 years. He is actually getting some motion and feeling back also in his arm. Bless you all."
"My wife ... is undergoing outpatient rehabilitation for a
stroke... Last week, her occupational therapist ... fitted her with a GivMohr
sling ... and requested that her physical therapist ... use it during the
physical therapy sessions which she observed. The GivMohr sling not only
improved her posture, preventing her left arm from dangling and pulling out of
the socket, but relieved a great deal of pain from this condition. We are very
anxious to ... employ it into her everyday activities as well as her therapy
"The GivMohr sling holds (his) arm at the right angle. We tried
lots of slings and (this one) was the only one that reduced the subluxation. He
is also able to use his arm a little while in the sling."
"I'm lucky to have an O/T
who understands the value of this great product. (People) who use it ...
rave about the great quality of assistance your sling offers. A lady
happened in yesterday and purchased a replacement sling for her husband who
had a stroke. She said it was really the best device for him as he needs
the hand free to meet and greet."
"My wife used one of your slings a few years ago after suffering
a severe head injury. It helped her regain the ability to walk as it really
helped her gait training. I gave it to the hospital's Occupational Therapy
Department, who had never seen one before, so they could help others use them."
Comments about the GivMohr Bilateral Sling:
"I have ALS. With arm onset, my deltoids atrophied and my arms
pulled against the sockets and my arms became uncomfortable. My OT pointed
me to you guys, and voil�! Problem solved. My legs still work okay, so now I
can enjoy long walks, hikes, and skiing much more comfortably with your
bilateral sling. Thanks for a good job and great design!"
(In addition to using
the GivMohr Bilateral Sling, Creighton Rider has also designed a
product for people with Dropped Head Syndrome.

"My name is Bill R., I am 71 years old and have
had polio since the age of 3. Polio has
damaged muscles in my chest, arm, back, and also caused damage
to my diaphragm. I have searched for years for help with my
pain. I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder. My right arm
is the one with polio. I have tried many different slings in the
past, but the one made by GivMohr Corporation seems to be
working. It has reduced 95% of the pain in my shoulder and the
other 5% is due to arthritis. I am very
thankful and grateful that I have finally found a sling to help."
