McDavid Universal Shoulder Support #462 Reviews

  1. Over all very good Review by Ben Ng

    Does what it says, good support . Allows for some movement without pain. The negative is that you might need help putting it on properly the first time like me.

  2. Good Review by Sheldon

    Did a great job from a support and compression standpoint, but could be a little easier to put on.

  3. Works well Review by Patrick

    I just received my shoulder brace and I like it so far. Its a little different and I have to get accustomed to it, but I think it is going to help. I also really like the fact that I can put a hot or cold pack in the shoulder pocket. I am a 49 year old guy and work in a fairly labor intensive job. I hurt my shoulder and upper bicep at work and want to avoid shoulder surgery, so this seems like just the ticket. The price is really reasonable and it works for both the right and left shoulder. I have been moving boxes all day and the brace has stayed attached. I will definitely recommend this shoulder brace to others.

  4. McDavid Universal Shoulder Support - great brace! Review by Christy Tomlinson

    I use the strap on my brace when I play field hockey because it gives my shoulder more support. I take the strap off when I'm done playing and sneak a gel pack into its pocket inside to ice my shoulder. So I really use my McDavid universal shoulder support every which way. I like the fit and it's easy to getting into before practice. I have recommended it to other players on my team with shoulder injuries.

  5. Supportive Review by Jordan Myers

    I really like that there is a pocket that I can slip a hot or cold pack in. It is very convenient and affordable.

    Sort by Descending
    • From Brent
      • Q: I was looking at this brace, as well as the Lightweight Shoulder Support #463. I'm looking for a shoulder sleeve for basketball during games. I'd like to know if either of these would be a good fit while playing.
      • A: Hi Brent both can be used for playing basketball although the Lightweight Shoulder Support #463 has s a little more lower profile design compared to this model. Both products are made out of neoprene and will provide warmth and mild to moderate support. Each one allows full freedom of motion as well.
    • From Chance
      • Q: What is the sizes for the XL brace? I am a 285 weight wrestler and have a 47 inch chest would the large be big enough?
      • A: Hi Chance,

        According to your measurements you would fit into the large size brace. The XL fits a 50-56" chest circumference.
    • From Jess
      • Q: Hi, I'm a female training to be a fire fighter, and I separated my right shoulder in Aug, after months of physical activity I've had so trouble with my shoulder and am looking for some support, and to keep my shoulder from moving around to much. I also had questioning about the size: I'm a 129 pounds with a chest of 33 / 32 ish, is the medium going to be too big ?
      • A: Hi Jess,

        According to your size the medium would fit just fine.
    • From Erin
      • Q: I am looking for a brace that will provide good support and care to my shoulder tendonitis/bursitis while still allowing me flexibility and motion. I am a stay at home mom to a toddler with a home business and need to be able to pick up my 30 lb son all the time, while also being able to do fine needlework. I am looking at this brace and the omotrain. Which one would you recommend for my situation? Thanks!
      • A: Hi Erin,

        The McDavid Universal Shoulder Support will provide general warmth and compression while allowing full shoulder motion for your everyday routine whether it involves needlework or lifting your child up into the air.
