To compare the radiological corrective effect for shoulder subluxation among GivMohr & other slings in hemiplegic patients.
Fifteen hemiplegic patients with flaccid upper limb were included. The vertical distance (VD), horizontal distance (HD) & joint distance (JD) on the plain AP views of the shoulders were measured. GivMohr sling was compared with 2 conventional slings, which were forearm cuff type extension sling and Bobath sling, in the effects of correction.
The mean values of VD and JD of hemiplegic shoulder increased compared to unaffected side, but those of HD was not different between them. In Bobath sling, VD was significantly reduced and HD was not changed. However, JD was increased as other studies. GivMohr sling and forearm cuff type extension sling showed corrective effect in VD and JD (p<0.05). When compared with these two slings, there were no significant differences in VD and JD.
The results show that GivMohr sling reduces shoulder subluxation as other slings. This new sling is helpful for patients with flaccid upper limbs to reduce shoulder subluxation. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2007; 31: 410-416)
