LimbO Children's Half Arm Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector

The LimbO Half Arm Child Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector features an innovative durable waterproof protector, designed to keep your plaster or dressing dry while bathing and showering. 

The LimbO Half Arm Child Plaster 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, comfortable and non constricting to use, and will last through the average user’s duration of treatment. The Limbo Cast Protector is a non-sterile product and is primarily intended for use in a bath or shower.

The LimbO Half Arm Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector provides a significant quality of life improvement for the user. It enables the wearer to be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of bathing and showering with a wound or cast that must be kept dry.

Selecting the Right Size of Limbo Child Half Arm Plaster Cast And Dressing Protector 

Please use the chart below to determine the correct size of the Limbo Child Half Arm Cast Protector for your child. It is advisable to use a tape measure (or a piece of string and a ruler if you do not have a tape measure).

A good starting point is to refer to the Limbo chart for your child's age in the "Age (Years)" column. The dimensions of the Limbo Half Arm Plaster Cast And Dressing Protector are listed alongside this.

Then refer to the "Limbo Length" column first, 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.

At this point up the arm, measure the circumference of the arm and check that it lies in the "Suitable Limb Circumference" measurement range. (If at this point there is still a cast or dressing and not bare arm, consider the Limbo Child Full Arm Plaster Cast And Dressing Protector instead).

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 Half 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) Limbo Length Limb Circumference Max. Cast Circumference
2 - 3 23cm 16 - 22cm 29cm
4 - 5 27cm 16 - 22cm 29cm
6 - 7 34cm 16 - 22cm 29cm
8 - 10 Slim 36cm 16- 22cm 29cm
8 - 10 Standard 36cm 22 - 25cm 33cm
11 - 13 Slim 43cm 16 - 22cm 29cm
11 - 13 Standard 43cm 22 - 25cm 33cm

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.

Limbo child’s half arm plaster protector
Friday, 31 May 2019  | 

I bought this for my five year old granddaughter after she broke her wrist and it has been a godsend. Not uncomfortable to wear and extremely effective. Her plaster was completely protected so baths weren’t a problem and she wore it uncomplainingly in the rain!
