EDX2, the company behind the NextSling and SlingSlip is a rehabilitation orthopedic products incubator and is part of the Avid Alexander portfolio of IP. The NextSling is the all-in-one backpack shoulder sling designed by medical experts to immobilize the shoulder, eliminate the strain on the neck, and distribute the weight of an injured limb for improved patient recovery, rehabilitation, comfort, and ease of use. How easy is the NextSling to use; simply slip it over your head, adjust, and start recovering. The NextSling provides enhanced recovery and improved rehabilitation compliance for our patients because of our innovative design! This means that patients can perform exercises earlier in the rehabilitation process than with other slings, while still taking the necessary precautions, thus getting back to the things they love quicker!

“The NextSling has changed the way I think about rehab and recovery. I was in constant pain with my initial sling because no matter what I did, I could not keep my shoulder still and had constant neck strain. Two days after surgery, I switched to the NextSling and my pain was immediately relieved and I was able to sleep better. The NextSling ensured my shoulder was still, eliminated the strain on my neck, and made me all around more comfortable. I wholeheartedly believe that I owe much of my initial rehab success to the NextSling.

With everything that goes into shoulder surgery, I can’t believe how much impact and improvement a shoulder sling can make. Thank you so much NextSling for creating a product that improves patients’ lives and for providing unmatched customer service.”
