Wednesday, 5 June 2019
There is a problem everyone with a cast will eventually have to confront: how do I wash without getting my cast wet? Short of awkwardly hanging your leg out the bath or dragging five leaky shopping bags into the shower it can be hard to find a solution. To save you a headache – and a soggy cast – here's our review of the Best Waterproof Cast Protectors 2019.
What's The Solution?
The doctor has asked you to keep your cast dry, but they haven't really explained how. This is a bind we've all found ourselves in but there is an easy solution. Brands such as LimbO and Seal-Tight have developed specialist watertight protectors which allow you to shower or bathe in comfort without worrying about your cast.
Why Shouldn't I Just Use a Plastic Bag?
We've all tried to come up with DIY solutions to keep casts and dressings dry. These kinds of solutions are more doable with small areas, but awkward or large areas inevitably end up wet. Even when they do work, arms or legs can quickly become sweaty undermining all your effort!
Without breaking the bank a professionally made cast protector can save you a whole lot of trouble. You don't need to take our word for it: LimbO and other brand cast protectors are some of the most frequently reviewed products on our website and met with almost unanimous acclaim. Once you've tried a cast protector you'll never return to awkward solutions.
How Do I Use a Cast Protector?
The cast protectors are easily to use but a small amount of extra attention can ensure they always work properly:
Which Brand Is the Right Choice?
There is not clear cut answer of who to go with, and since every company offers slightly different variations and measurements it is worth trying to match them up to your arm. Importantly, however, while LimbO's protectors are only intended for the bath and shower, Seal-Tight offer a few 'active' protectors for swimming and OUTCAST specialise in outdoor protection from mud and rain.
