Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

The first three times I used this cast protector, I was thrilled.
REL
The rubber ring that forms the seal around the leg has an opening that was too small for my 240 lb husbands upper leg.
Amazon Customer
This product is easy to use and it does the job because it keeps your cast dry while you showering!

My husband shattered his heel and wore a splint for a month, and now he's in a cast up to his knee. I bought the protector right after his injury to make grooming a little easier each morning. It's been a lifesaver. At first, it was a little difficult to pull it up over his splint because the opening on the gusset is rather small. But when we put on a woman's nylon stocking first, it went on much easier. The same for the cast- using a stocking first makes it easier. He's able to get in the shower without worrying about getting his cast wet. The gusset keeps all water out. I'm glad we haven't had to use a trash bag! Great product!

This cast protector works great! I'm 6'4, and I wear a size 13 shoe (US), so I have bigger feet and legs than most, and this product is (barely) able to fit over my post-surgery SPLINT, which is larger than my cast will be in a week. (I've had a cast for the past 3 weeks before the surgery) Length is not a problem, it goes all the way up to my knee.

After the shower the inside of the cast protector was bone-dry. Not only is it easier to use than garbage bag + rubber bands, but it works better too!

After a few uses, I've completely ignored it while in the shower. Although I still wouldn't submerge it in water, I don't take any special precautions to avoid getting it wet in the shower.

I fractured my foot, and I have a full leg cast. The thought of sponge bathing for 8 weeks was so depressing, but this protector solves the shower problem. Really works! Amazon was just wonderful - I paid for standard shipping and received the Protector in 2 days! Also, the price was less than the medical supply store. (They put me on "hold" when I phoned, so I gave up after 15 minutes and phoned Amazon.) Thank you, Amazon!

Size Name: Adult Short Leg
Highly recommended. I have been using it for two weeks on my leg cast, which goes up to just below my knee. It fits well, and works perfectly in the shower. It is far better than the garbage bag/saran wrap/duct tape contraption I used at the start. Having a cast is a pain, but showering with this protector on is worry-free. The plastic is heavy duty, and as long as the rubber ring is perfectly flush around your skin, you will stay completely dry.

I am 6' tall, and the ring/top part does not go above my knee (as shown in the picture), but it works fine just below the knee and above the cast.

I read an earlier review about how hard it can be to get the rubber top over parts of the cast, and agree that this can be a problem. I've found the heel to be the hardest point to get around. In fact, just yesterday I punctured a hole in the rubber trying to guide it over the heel. Be careful not to pull too much on the rubber itself. The instructions on the box tell you to pull the protector up or down handling only the plastic ring. It's good advice, but nearly impossible. At some point I have to work the rubber part over the heel, but gently, so I don't rip it again.

I had already purchased another protector for back-up, and am glad I did. The benefit of a worry-free shower experience is well worth the money.

This product does just what it says it does. With all the frustrations connected to ankle surgery, it's delightful to be able to do something as simple as take a shower. I never spend a moment worrying about getting my splint wet.

I suffer from varicose ulcers on my leg and have to wear Unna Boots for treatment of the same . I searched randomly for a cast protector at Amazon . I selected this product because of good reviews . I was not disappointed . It is close to perfect , the diaphram wont let a drop of water soak your cast . Very easy to use , reliable , durable , slide on system with diaphram . Dries up very fast .

PRO:
1. Excellent water-tight seal
2. Very durable plastic sleeve

CON:
1. More expensive than a trash bag

It is difficult to keep any cast dry while trying to maintain a little personal hygiene. In the past, I have used trash bags, but a little water still gets in, so you have to do acrobatics in the shower to try to keep water away from the trash bag.

The Duro-Med Leg Protector has a rubber gasket that forms a water-tight seal. So water tight, that I have even gone into the swimming pool without getting my cast wet. And the plastic sleeve is somewhere between 8-10 mil thickness (about 15 times thicker than a standard trash bag). It has been wonderful being able to shower without any concern of getting the cast wet.

It might go without saying, but you do need to be careful when you put on or remove the protector not to damage the rubber gasket on long fingernails or sharp objects. Once the gasket is torn, the protector is worthless.

I have used this for a couple weeks now and love it. It will still be in good shape for the next cast!

Slips on and off easily. You don't need duct tape or rubber bands and it keeps the water out for multiple uses. Saves time. Definately worth the money.
