Waterproof plaster cast covers and Showerproof bandage protectors

Broken leg? Fractured arm? Bandaged foot? Leg ulcer or wound? Want to have a shower? Want to go swimming? Need to keep the area completely dry? Impossible? No it’s not – read on.

There are two products available, the first one is a totally watertight cover (Active Seal waterproof plaster cast cover) for swimming and bathing, the other one is a showerproof cover (Sealtight showerproof protector) for taking a shower. These products can be used if you have either a plaster cast or a bandage on your arm, foot or leg. The showerproof protector cannot be used in a swimming pool, however the Active Seal waterproof plaster cast cover can be used in a shower, bath or swimming pool.

The protectors are available in different sizes and shapes depending on whether you are a child or adult and whether you need to protect an arm or a leg.

Tip: sometimes a plaster cast can have rough edges which might damage the waterproof cover, if so use a large sock over the area before you put the cover on.

  • Hi Sue,

    You may also be interested in our range of cast covers as well :) We design and make a super range of funky covers for all ages and we have lots more products being added soon.

  • I’ve had a quick look on your website and I can find no reference anywhere to the actual fabric used, only information about colours and sizes. Just my opinion but I would have thought that this info would be top on the list that a customer would want to know.

    Also if I was a potential customer I would prefer to see a landline listed on your website rather than just a mobile number. Just more secure really.

    I can see no official company information of the above company.
    Is this an official company ?
    No fax, no fix telephone number, no VAT number….

  • Hi Jan

    My comment and I presume your comment refers to the “Cover my Cast” company and not the waterproof and showerproof covers from Physio Supplies Ltd that my blog post is about.

    Physio Supplies are a very reputable company.

    My mum needs an elbow waterproof protector. would it be suitable for her as she is very small and has tiny arms??
    if it is suitable how much would it cost and when could it be delivered by.

    thanks

  • Hi Janet, you need to measure your mum’s arm and check the measurement against the list above to find the best fit. You should contact the company that sells the waterproof cover to find out their up to date delivery schedule.

    I need a waterproof cover for an ulcer on my ankle, if I was to have one of the half leg covers, do I actually need to wear it with the applicator ring?

    Hi,
    I have a contact dermatitis problem on my hand which prevents swimming in chlorinated pools.Do you have a suitable product?
