Enjoy Time in the Water, Even with a Cast
Our blog post today about this waterproof cast cover is written in partnership with DryPro Corp.
Have you ever had a broken bone and had to wear a cast? My understanding was that if you had a cast for a broken bone, you could not go swimming, take a shower or take a bath without some sort of protection over the cast. The only way I knew to protect a cast was with duct tape and trash bags. Now there is a better and more effective way to enjoy the water and protect your cast at the same time! DryPro has manufactured a patented vacuum sealed waterproof cast cover for people with a broken arm or leg! It’s pretty cool because this high-quality surgical rubber sleeve fits over casts, bandages, Ostomies, PICC lines and prosthetics, offering complete waterproof protection. The patented vacuum seal assures that a cast or bandage will remain dry, even when submerged in water.
Beginning in 1999, Dr. Roy Archambault, DPM, ABFS, began distributing the DryPro™ after more than 20 years of experience in podiatric and ambulatory medicine. Dr. Archambault designed and constructed the DryPro™ with an expert understanding of patient needs. The DryPro™ enables patients to swim, bathe, shower, and to receive hydrotherapy. During any water activity, it protects the respective body part.
Cast Covers Available:
- Half Arm (typically worn to elbow)
- Full Arm (typically worn to shoulder)
- Half Leg (typically worn to the knee)
- Full Leg (typically worn to the thigh)
Made of thick surgical rubber, the DryPro™ can stretch up to 600 percent without tearing. Isn’t that crazy cool??!! This durable product offers comfort and flexibility and features a Non-Skid Grid on the sole to prevent slipping. Other limb cover products do not offer the same waterproof guarantee as the DryPro™. The reliable vacuum seal and Non-Skid Grid makes the DryPro™ the safest and most effective product.
The DryPro™ is available in a variety of sizes designed to fit the youngest child to grown adults! Repeated leak-proof testing proves the reliability of the DryPro™ as the only truly waterproof protector. When applying the DryPro™, the included pump flattens to indicate an intact seal that will not leak. The DryPro™ not only offers cast protection, but also allows prosthetic wearers an alternative to removing prosthetics during water activities. For people with PICC lines and Ostomies, the DryPro™ is super easy to use as compared to dealing with duct tape and trash bags. Plus, it can be used for post-operative physical therapy, allowing hydrotherapy right after surgery. It’s great because it’s not only waterproof protection, but it also helps prevent swelling and stiffness, thus expediting the healing process. This is a major reason why athletes like to use the DryPro™ after an injury.
