The Omomed is a post-operative support following fractures at the humerus head and the scapula, treatment of osteoarthritis, dislocation of the shoulder, treatment following prostheses and rotator cuff reconstruction. Featuring a flexible strapping system and elasticated knitting across the arm and shoulder, the Omomed is designed to be both comfortable and durable.
With Clima-Comfort fabric and an anatomically designed shoulder supporting system, the Omomed is suitable for long duration usage. Designed to limit movement in and around the shoulder joint, the Omomed protects the joint during rehabilitation by guarding it from both external and internal pressures. The adjustable support can be used to limit movement of the joint and exert localized compression to the area - increasing the recovery speed in the process. The flexible strap system allows for a single size adult product.
Reliable wicking transfer system allows the skin to breath and evaporates moisture away from the skin to keep the user cool, dry and comfortable. The high evaporating knit creates a microclimate for the skin whilst allowing it to breath at all times. The integrated Clima-Fresh function features antibacterial properties to prevent bacteria from forming in the knit to maintain optimum hygiene. All medi supports have been tested to meet ko-Tex Standard 100 and are developed and produced in Germany.

Good quality brace but fit needed (ie close around arm) irritated my ulnar nerve and set off neuropathic pain, so I returned the brace. The other thing to consider is what clothes you will wear with it. Obviously dressing as the model in the picture is unlikely to be appropriate or practical in all situations.
