Professional Products unveils Shoulder Stabilizing Orthosis for athletes

NewsGuard 100/100 Score

The most unstable joint in the body, the shoulder, is most at risk for dislocation and subluxations. Current shoulder supports immobilize a patient's shoulder. That's why Professional Products, Inc. (PPI), a leader and innovator in orthopaedic solutions for nearly five decades, today unveiled the SSO (Shoulder Stabilizing Orthosis) www.SSOShoulderStabilizer.com, a support delivering unparalleled functional stability to an athlete's shoulder while they're playing sports like football, ice hockey, rugby, snow skiing, weightlifting or others.

Designed with extensive input from professional athletic trainers, the SSO can facilitate, restrain or restrict an array of injuries based on the specific needs of the patient's injury. It's a superior solution for sports medicine surgeons, physical therapists and athletic trainers because it allows athletes to go through their full range of motion while also protecting their shoulder when it is most vulnerable.  

The SSO is made of a lightweight, breathable material that offers excellent four way stretch and compression.  This low profile material minimizes bulk and provides additional non-slip control to the shoulder complex.  The material also allows unencumbered breathing, which is important for athletes engaged in sports activities.  

The SSO's benefits include:

  • Dynamic straps that limit, restrict or assist the movement of the shoulder joint in practically any direction while providing functional stability
  • Indicated for soft tissue muscular issues like rotator cuff deceleration and pectoral tears
  • Version for A/C separations to prevent movement -- even during high impact activities
  • Biceps closure feature
  • Integrated front and back strapping system
  • Velcro landing pads
  • Much more affordable
  • Covers a wider range of injuries than competitors
  • Fits both left and right shoulders

"The SSO truly is useful for athletes playing any sport due to its wide array of indications," said Dean Stanton, General Manager of PPI.
