Clipping the STARSupport onto the STARBoard
The STARSupport clips onto the STARBoard, offering quick and secure mounting and removal.
The STARSupport should be clipped close to the pivot point, near the daggerboard so that the blue cup is positioned on the patients upper arm (above the elbow).
STARSupport Placement Orientation
The STARSupport has a diagram on the soft blue cup to indicate the correct orientation it should be positioned in relation to the patient. When placing the STARSupport, rotate the blue cup so the diagram follows the direction of the supine patient.
Positioning the STARSupport
Whilst the STARSupport is still unlocked, the joints will move freely and can be adjusted to suit both the patient and the clinician.
Adjust the support so that the patient’s upper arm is supported by the blue cup. It should be positioned just above the patients elbow. The patient’s arm should be held as high as comfortably possible.
