LimbO Child Full Arm Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector

When you have a cast or dressing fitted to an injury, it's important to ensure it stays dry so that it remains as effective as possible. The LimbO Child Full Arm Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector features an innovative durable waterproof protector, designed to keep your plaster or dressing dry while bathing and showering.

Key Features

  • Keeps your child's casts and dressings dry in the shower
  • Self-sealing for reliable and easy use
  • Self-supporting protector with no hassle
  • Four sizes available to fit most children

Reliable and Easy to Use

This Cast and Dressing Protector is a self-sealing, self-supporting garment which prevents the penetration of water to plaster casts and wound dressings on arms during bathing. It is simple and comfortable to use and will last through the average user’s duration of treatment. Making life easier for the user, this is a non-sterile product and is primarily intended for use in a bath or shower.

How to Choose Your Size

Please use the chart below to determine the correct size using a tape measure (or a piece of string and a ruler if you do not have a tape measure). To ensure you get the correct size, follow these easy steps:

  1. Match your child's age to the "Age" column in the chart below. The dimensions of the Cast Protector are listed alongside this.
  2. Then refer to the "Limbo Length" column, and measure up your child's arm from the tip of the fingers (or the furthest point of the fingers if they are bent) to the point that matches the "Limbo Length" column.
  3. At this point up the arm, measure the circumference of the arm and check that it lies in the "Suitable Limb Circumference" measurement range.
  4. Then, to make sure the Limbo Cast Protector will fit over the cast or dressing, double check that the cast or dressing at its widest/largest/bulkiest point is no larger than the circumference in the "Maximum Cast Circumference" column.

If all measurements are within the correct parameters, then that is the correct Limbo Child Full Arm Cast Protector for your child. As all children are different sizes at different ages, your child's arm may fit into a different age bracket sizing, even if that does not match their age. The important thing to remember when selecting the correct size Limbo Cast Protector for your child is to ensure the measurements match.

Age (Years) Code Limbo Length Suitable Limb Circumference Maximum Cast Circumference
4 - 5 FA45 43cm 16cm - 22cm 29cm
6 - 7 FA67 49cm 22cm - 25cm 33cm
8 - 10 FA810 59cm 22cm - 25cm 33cm
11 - 13  FA1113 58cm 25cm - 34cm 40cm

If you are in any doubt please phone the Health and Care Customer Care Team on 020 7720 2266 for more information about sizing and a possible custom made version.

Guidelines For Using Your Limbo Cast Protector

Check that the rubber seal remains undamaged before using. Carefully follow the fitting instructions for your Limbo to ensure that it is watertight.

You are then free to enjoy your shower or bath safe in the knowledge that your wound or plaster will remain dry. The Limbo should not be worn for more than 20 to 30 minutes at a time, as the trapped air gets quite warm which can cause condensation. After use, follow the simple guidelines in the fitting instructions to ensure that your Limbo Cast Protector will last the length of your treatment.

Fantastic product it meant my son was able to go on the beach and in the pool. The order came next day delivery and the sales assistant was really helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks great service.

Very disappointed with this company
Tuesday, 3 July 2018  | 

I ordered the LimbO on Thursday 28 June expecting delivery in a couple of days-the item was urgently needed in this hot weather! Payment was taken and when it had not arrived by late afternoon on Tuesday 3rd July I phoned to check the status and was told "we were going to phone you today as it is not in stock". This delay is unwarranted-customers should be advised on ordering when an item is not in stock-and payment should not be taken either!

Great for splashing around
Monday, 18 June 2018  | 

This product is brilliant. My 10 year old has been able to have fun in the paddling pool. Even went under water with it on ... although kept trying to tell her not to! Laying in the bath was ok too. The only reason why not 5 stars is that it is starting to tear a little but that is where we keep stretching it over the cast as she has the A & E cast on for 3 weeks which was bulky.

Too small
Thursday, 8 March 2018  | 

I was very unhappy with my item, it was far too small for my girl’s arm, when I contacted customer services I was told I couldn’t change it as I open it. So I spend money for nothing.

Life saver
Friday, 15 December 2017  | 

My four year old daughter broke her arm at gymnastics and loves her bath so with a plaster cast this was going to be a nightmare. However this made her so happy. I ordered Monday afternoon and it arrived Tuesday morning. Can’t recommend product and company enough. Thank you
