This is called the Salvation because it saved music for me after losing my hand.
This is an adapter for individuals who are missing a hand or fingers, to hold a medium thumb style guitar pick securely on their arm. The unique shape of the strap holes lets the strap brace the adapter from both sides so it is very responsive.
It should work for picking most stringed instruments, and you can use it on either arm. It should also work well for people who suffer from arthritis or partial paralysis.
I can wear it for 6-8 hours straight without circulation issues. It also greatly sped up my recovery from my amputation by giving me regular physical therapy from playing again.
Make sure not to tighten the strap too tight so it cuts off your circulation. Use at your own risk, and check with your doctor before using.
To put it on:
Put the big back loop over your arm. Then stretch the front loop over.
Then adjust the tension between the two sides by sliding your finger under the strap on the loose side and sliding toward the strap hole so the tight side gets the slack, and equalize the tension.
To position it, hold your arm out straight in front of you. To play electric guitars or thin bodied instruments, the adapter should point out at 9 o'clock for the right side, 3 o'clock for left. I adjust it to 10 o'clock/2 o'clock for acoustic guitars with a thicker body.
