Cover Your Arm Plaster and Shower Comfortably with Our Cast Covers for Showering

Casts are never pleasant. Aside from the obvious pain brought on by the injury, the cast itself can become a nuisance in small parts of your life. Some of the main annoyances associated with casts are that they are uncomfortable, hot, can be unhygienic and – arguably worst of all – make taking showers a pain.

Since casts should always stay dry to avoid irritation or infection, people produce makeshift solutions. Luckily, you don’t have to do that, since our team at Limbo Australasia stocks the perfect cast covers for showering.

Importance of Keeping Your Cast Dry With a Cast Shower Cover

A reliable arm cast cover for a shower is important for two main reasons.

First, if a plaster cast gets wet, the moisture can weaken it. Given the purpose of a cast, it requires the structural integrity to remain reliable until the day the doctor removes it. A weaker cast can result in improper healing, which is never ideal.

Second, if the inside of the cast stays wet, it will most likely lead to considerable skin irritation, skin death, or severe infections.

Obviously, neither of these outcomes is ideal as it impedes healing. Something to consider is that when children break bones, doctors often encourage their parents to give sponge baths rather than risk wet and damaged casts. But what happens when patients don't have someone to help them bathe or shower?

Sometimes, people try to craft makeshift cast protectors using plastic bags, medical tape, and other components. This strategy often fails to be waterproof and can result in a big waste of money and materials. After all, it’s unlikely that makeshift solutions are reusable, resulting in you having to make a new protector every time you plan to shower.

Investing in a Reliable Shower Cover for a Plaster Cast

At Limbo Australasia, we can supply a reliable cast cover for arms or legs manufactured using high quality materials to keep the seal watertight and your cast completely dry. Getting the same result with a homemade solution will be incredibly difficult.

A shower cover from us is also reusable and can last for up to a year if cared for correctly. In the long run, a Limbo full-arm cast protector is more cost-effective than cobbling pieces of plastic and tape at home. They are also quick and easy to put on, which means you will save time over the course of your injury recovery period.

There is no denying that being in a cast is an unpleasant experience. However, being able to shower, bathe, or even swim without worrying about getting the cast wet makes the recovery journey a little easier.
