My PT hinted at some sort of brace that could be worn at night to help straighten my arm. Im at about the same time frame as you and have about 90% ROM back. About 10deg from straight and i can almost bend it to touch my shoulder. Rotation is almost normal as well.

My surgeon suggested it last week since I am five months out and still only have about a 90 degree bend to my arm. Insurance won't way the $1900 price tag. Stinks cuz I could gain my ROM back so much quicker with the device, but insurance prefers to pay up to $8000 in PT visits and prolong my recovery.



So I am wondering if this little contraption is worth me paying for it out of my pocket or if anyone has a used one for sale....
