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?
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.
