Waterproof Cast - Enabling Patients to Shower or Wash Properly After Injury
Patients and mobility sufferers of all ages struggle to maintain their personal hygiene when wearing a cast after a broken bone or muscle injury. Wearing a cast is not much fun at the best of times, and it is made even more uncomfortable by not being able to shower or wash properly whilst wearing a protective cast or sling.

Nevertheless, many customers now look to a waterproof cast to overcome this problem. Cast protectors allow you to encase the cast and allow them to wash your body in a normal manor. Waterproof cast protectors are designed to be strong and durable, whilst ensuring that wearing your cast is more bearable on a day-to-day basis.

It is possible to buy these cast protectors to cover legs, arms, hands and ankles to ensure that your mobility is maintained in a comfortable, protective fashion. They simply slip over the cast or dressing on either the lower leg or arm to protect them when taking a bath or shower. The cast protects are re-usable and are intended for single patient use only. As it is re-usable this is also a cost-effective preventative for current and potential injuries now and in the future.

Customers should however note that a waterproof cast is not suitable for use with open or undressed wounds or when swimming.

It is important that mobility sufferers are provided with contemporary, innovative mobility products that allow you to maintain your independence. Norfolk mobility specialists Collins Care have over two decades of experience of providing mobility products tailored to suit individual needs.
