Product Overview

XeroSox Waterproof Cast Protector

XeroSox Waterproof Cast Protector
Waterproof Body Protection


XeroSox Waterproof Cast Protector fits snugly and comfortably, telling you that it is maintaining an airtight, absolutely waterproof seal before you even get in the water. There are no surprises. You feel this watertight seal while you are showering, bathing, or even swimming and splashing about. It fits so well, you can’t even pull it off!

All other cast protectors are loose bags that just try to keep water out with a tight cuff. You can’t tell if they are leaking or not, and when they move around or slip down, you get a leak. Not good enough.

XeroSox Safe Nonslip Sole: The unique nonslip molded sole is specially designed for smooth, wet, slippery surfaces. And because the nonslip tread is fitted snugly against the foot and cast, there is no slipping around inside XeroSox either. The foot covered with XeroSox actually has much better traction and stability than your bare foot.

XeroSox Uses:
  • Plaster Casts - Water simply destroys a plaster cast, and the wet skin underneath becomes macerated and breaks down.
  • Fiberglass Casts - If you get a fiberglass cast wet, it stays wet and cold for hours afterwards. And it gets your clothes wet too!
  • PICC Line Protection - Preventing PICC line infection is serious business, and keeping it clean and dry is essential.
  • External Fixation, Healing Wounds - Must be kept clean and dry to prevent infection.
  • Prosthesis Protection - Easier than prosthesis removal, and you can stand up in the shower, or in the waves.
  • Immediate Post Op Hydrotherapy - Prevent swelling from developing, increase joint mobility, speed recovery. Used by physical therapists and trainers for professional athletes.
Measuring for the XeroSox

Measure Limb Circumference:

Arm: Measure the circumference of the arm about two inches above (proximal to) the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the elbow, measure mid upper arm (bicep).
Do not measure around the cast, but around the bare arm or leg as in the photo.
Leg: Measure the circumference of the leg just above the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the knee, measure mid thigh.

Measure Length:

Arm: Measure from the tip of the middle finger to where the circumference was measured (in step 1).
Leg: Measure from the back of the heel to where the circumference was measured. For younger children the full arm and full leg XeroSox offer the best fit; measure from their mid bicep or mid thigh. Don't worry if the XeroSox is longer than it needs to be. Move the extra length to the middle of the limb, the excess material will just shrink in on itself when the vacuum is created.

Use Size Charts:

Using the size charts select the XeroSox size that is right for you or your patient. The circumference is more important than the length because it is critical for a good seal. *Note the half arms and half legs are not normally used for children. Pediatric patients almost always use full arm or leg XeroSox.

Arm Sizes
The circumference measurement is very important for proper sizing, excess length is not a problem.

Leg Sizes
The circumference measurement is very important for proper sizing, excess length is not a problem.

Due to often short recovery times this is a NON-returnable item. Please call us to verify what size is right for you.

Does the job

Pros:

Cons:
deflated easy.
Describe Yourself:
Medical Professional.

i bought this for my 4 year old grandson who broke his arm. We spent a week at the beach and with the water and the sand, it kept the cast dry and sand free. He wore it alot and there were no marks on his arm as i thought would happen. It did not stay deflated so we just folded it up(it was about 4 inches longer than we planned for)and held it on the cast with an elastic. overall worked well.

Works great! Verified Purchaser


This product worked great for my daughter who broke her arm. She was able to swim at the pool and at the beach. It saved our summer! It was difficult to put on, but once it was on, there were no worries.

My son can swim!

Pros:
Lightweight. Easy Storage.
Best Uses:
Swimming. Bathing.
Describe Yourself:
Parent.

My son broke his arm the same week we opened our pool for the summer. I was so sad for him. The dr. told us he had heard of a waterproof cover and to check online. I am so glad I did. He has used it 7 times in the pool in 2 weeks and it has held out water perfectly. He has fully submerged this every time with no leaks. Yes, it is tight around the arm. It isn't magic. The water has to be kept out somehow. The tightness has not bothered him and has not cut off his circulation in any way. Its just a little hard to get over the cast.

Swimming again!!! Verified Purchaser

Pros:
Waterproof. Easy Storage. Safe. Sturdy. Lightweight.
Best Uses:
Swimming. Cast protection.
Describe Yourself:
Athletic.

I am able to swim in our pool with this product over my leg cast. I have a fractured heel bone with no weight bearing so I really needed some exercise. It takes several minutes to put on and off, but the products that are too easy do not create a waterproof seal and this one does. I definitely recommend it for swimming.
