In addition to standard varieties, you'll also find arm immobilizer styles with different shaped pillow wedges designed to place your forearm outward away from your body (we call it shoulder external rotation), in all different angles - especially important to note if you've had surgery.

What Kind Of Injury Is An Arm Immobilizer Used For?
Arm immobilizers are used for shoulder dislocations/separations, glenoid labrum repairs, SLAP repairs, rotator cuff repairs and more. They are ideally suited for preventing unwanted shoulder motion from occurring so that proper healing can take place after a delicate orthopedic procedure. They can also be used for immobilizing acute shoulder sprains right after the initial injury where enhanced comfort and motion restrictions are again indicated.
