Showering is an important part of daily life, and it’s not hard to understand why. Our skin picks up germs quite easily, and needs to be cleaned regularly to keep us feeling—and smelling—fresh. However, certain circumstances can make washing your body difficult. For instance, if you have been injured and must wear a cast, you may be concerned about getting it wet. If your cast is on a part of your body that can easily be held outside of the shower, you may be able to make do—but if you are wearing a cast on your foot, you might face certain difficulties. What are you supposed to do: stand on one leg the entire time you’re in the shower? That would be difficult, inconvenient—and potentially unsafe. Instead, consider more practical solutions, such as finding a foot cast cover suitable for shower usage.
The Limbo is a our standard durable waterproof protector, designed to keep your plaster or dressing dry while bathing or showering.
Available in both adults and child sizes
A well-made cast shower cover can protect your foot from water, even in situations where the limb is completely submerged. It is a common misconception that casts labelled “water proof” will accomplish this when most “waterproof” casts simply resist moisture. Most doctors do not recommend getting any cast wet, and will certainly tell you that submerging one or running a stream of water directly over it is a bad idea. If you want to make sure that you can shower without worrying about the condition of your cast, make sure to purchase a foot cover intended for shower use.
Purchasing a foot cover that can stand up to a direct stream of water can allow you to shower with confidence, so always make sure the covers you consider are tried and tested. Look for a foot cover that has been used in hospitals and retirement facilities, so that you can be sure that it works the way it is intended. You may also wish to find a durable and long-lasting product so that you can continue to use the same cover for as long as it takes you to recover instead of having to purchase multiple items and dispose of each one after a few uses.
