InventHelp Client Introduces Medical Accessory (SAH-245)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, is submitting this client's invention, the Elkins Device, to companies in the hopes of a good faith review.

"Several friends have torn biceps muscles or had shoulder surgeries," said an inventor from Galt, Calif. "They always complain about slings pulling on their necks and hurting their backs. That's why I came up with a better way to support an injured arm."

He developed the Elkins Device to replace the sling for arm support. The design eliminates the strap to prevent strain on neck muscles. The design also keeps the user from slouching forward and putting painful pressure on the back. This promotes good posture and improves the user's attitude. The device also is usable as a back support. Additionally, it is ideal for use by patients recovering from biceps, triceps and shoulder surgeries.

The original design was submitted to the Sacramento office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-SAH-245, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at
