Delta Dry Waterproof Cast Padding for a Short Arm Cast
A Broken arm/hand before vacation can be a bummer. For those who suffer a broken arm, waterproof cast padding is now an option for keeping your cast clean and germ free. Delta Dry waterproof cast padding can be used under a fibreglass cast to make it completely waterproof. You can now swim, bathe, shower, wash the car all while having a waterproof cast. Traditional casts would be soaking wet and build up germs and begin to smell.
Frequently asked and answered questions:
1. Why does my waterproof cast kit not come with stockinette: Our waterproof casts only come with padding and optional casting tape. The stockinette is not necessary to make up the cast. (see video below)
2. Do I need to add casting tape to the order? What is the colour choice for? No, your doctor does carry fibreglass casting tape. However, they may charge you more money if you are paying out of pocket. Also, they may not have the colour you are looking for. We have over 6 different colours.
3. How fast does the cast dry and can salt water or chlorine affect the cast? It will take about 20-30 minutes for the cast to fully dry. You can get it to dry faster by using a hair dryer set on low. We recommend that you wash the cast with fresh water after swimming in salt or chlorine water. This will extend the life of your cast.
