Showering with a dressed wound or cast
Accidents happen and sadly as we age falls become more common place. I visited my 93 year old this morning to be told he had had a fall and this resulted in 6 stitches in his head.
He was lucky to have not knocked himself out as the impact of his fall was sufficient to knock a double electric socket straight off the wall!
He had a injury to his arm and the district nurse came in to look at it. She applied a small dressing and then advised him to wrap cling film/shrink wrap around it to keep it dry and then he could still shower. I thought this was a useful suggestion for small wounds but less practical for plastercasts. Wrist fractures are so common yet leave thousands a year disabled to an extent for 6 weeks.
Active Mobility stock a range of waterproof covers which make showering with a wound or cast not only possible but easy. They have waterproof covers for arms, hands and legs so have you covered!
These comfortable waterproof protectors are easy to use and have a self-sealing band allowing them to be submerged. Simply slip over a cast or dressing on either the leg or arm to protect them whilst showering or bathing.
I endorse Active Mobility as I personally know the company and they offer amazing customer service, swift despatch and FREE UK delivery.
