Sizing is very important to ensure proper use of the DRYPRO.
1. Measure the circumference of your leg at 2 inches above the cast or wound. If this is at the knee, then measure above the knee. The cast cover will not work if sealed at the knee.
2. Measure the length from your heel to 2 inches above the cast or wound. As long as the length of the cast cover is longer than your measurement, you are good to go! Any excess material in length will be shrunken down with the vacuum seal.
Most people struggle to protect their casts or wounds from getting wet and staying 100% drywhile bathing, showering, swimming, doing outdoor activities, and receiving hydrotherapy. And most people have an upcoming vacation booked, and now it’s ruined because of their injury. They try using plastic gloves, ziploc, trash bags or inexpensive, generic, made-in-China off-white bag products. This is not easy to do by yourself, it is time consuming, and is not 100% waterproof or tear-resistant. We help them take a warm bath or relaxing shower properly, and fully enjoy swimming, kayaking, and other water-based activities. This provides a feeling of confidence because they know their casts or wounds are actually staying dry.
Excellent waterproof protector. My husband has a lower leg wound that cannot get wet. We used a drugstore purchased cast protector first, and it eventually ripped after about 4 months. The DRYPRO is so much more durable. The non-slip surface on the bottom makes it easier for him in the shower. He was even able to take a dip in the pool!
