It is important to insist on a waterproof cast. 
We have 1000's of doctors who apply waterproof casts each year.


AquaCast Liner, is a unique waterproof, breathable cast padding that allows you to continue your normal routine at home and at work without worrying about keeping your cast dry. Used in place of cotton underneath a fiberglass cast, AquaCast Liner allows you to:
  • Bathe or shower
  • Minimize cast odor and itching
  • Swim
  • Wash your hands
  • Bathe your children
  • Begin hydrotherapy
  • Wash the dishes, the car, the dog - without the hassle of trying to protect your cast from getting wet.

    When a fiberglass cast padded AquaCast padding gets wet, most of the water drains quickly out of the ends of your cast. The remaining moisture is warmed by body heat, becomes vapor and passes through the Cast Liner and fiberglass casting tape. No special drying is necessary.


    Cast Cooler can dry your wet cast faster.

    Simply hook up a wet/dry vac and suck
    out the water.





    Frequently asked and answered questions:

    1. Which one is for $21.99?  That would be the infant size.  The larger the person the more rolls of padding and casting tape you will need.  So the price goes up to compensate for the more product you will receive.  Infants only need 1 roll of padding, where as an Adult will need 3 rolls of padding.
    2.  Do I need to add casting tape to the order?  What is the color choice for?

    Our OrthoTape brand fiberglass casting tape is specially designed for salt or chlorine water types and will keep its color longer than any other brand of casting tape.

    Add this to your order and remember to choose a color of tape and choose size based upon the patient age.

    3.  Do I need to be a doctor to purchase this item?  No, we are happy to sell this to those doing self-help or patients taking this to their doctor.  It's always good to insist on you're rights as a patient and tell your doctor what you want.  Let them know you want a waterproof cast for your medical care.  This way they know your wishes up front.  There are many medical opinions out there.  Many of our doctors even send patients to us.
    4.  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 or by using our cast cooler/dryer (see photo at bottom).  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.
