Instructions for Wearing the Cast Cover
Waterproof Cast and Bandage Cover
Slide on Cast Cover - Stretch on the Cast Cover waterproof bandage cover
so that it completely covers the cast or bandage
plus an additional inch. The top should be smooth
against the skin. Be careful of sharp objects. A
fingernail, sharp fiberglass threads on a cast,
can rip the cast and bandage protector. Putting a soft elastic bandage
or a tube sock with the toe cut out over the fiberglass
cast will help reduce sharp fiberglass threads from
cutting into the waterproof bandage cover.
Pump out the air - Continue to press
the bulb until it remains flat and the Cast Cover
completely wrinkled. Remove the pump and push on
the safety cap. Observe the waterproof cast and bandage cover for a few minutes
before going in the water. As long as the waterproof clothing
stays collapsed and wrinkled, the vacuum is intact
and the cast/bandage protector cannot leak or come off.
Slide off - When you are done using
the cover, simply lift up the cuff to let the
air back in. The waterproof bandage cover should now be loose.
Simply slide it back off.
- Do not leave on for extended periods of time.
We recommend removing it after every 45 minutes
of use. Do not use in vascular compromised patients.
Steady yourself in wet slippery areas. The cast and bandage protector
contains natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic
reactions. Always follow your doctor's advice.
