Caring For Your Cast During COVD-19

COVID-19 has heightened our awareness of all things CLEAN.

From face masks to manic disinfecting, we’ve quickly learned that germs & viruses spread rapidly; consequently, we’ve been forced to become diligent about protecting ourselves & our loved ones during this strange time.

If you’re currently healing in a cast, you know how DIFFICULT it is to care for your cast properly.  In fact, you have to be even more aware of what germs you are tracking into your home on a plaster cast or orthopedic device that can’t just be thrown into the washing machine.

 So what’s the solution?!

Our team of orthopedic device experts have brainstormed some simple life hacks for you, as you face the day-to-day challenges of living with a cast during a pandemic.

Here are our Top 5 Cast Care Tips:

  1. Keep it dry – invest in a watertight cast protector for your Arm or Leg Cast (we recommend our very own AquaShieldUSA); this will allow you to shower without having to worry about water sneaking into your cast.
  2. Never place anything inside your cast – we know an itchy cast is no fun, but trying to scratch inside your cast can not only damage the device, but can also transfer germs or bacteria to the inside as well.
  3. To prevent scratching, snagging, and to keep your cast CLEAN and dry, cover it with CastCoverZ! products – the EASIEST solution for keeping your device germ-free is to keep it covered! The beauty of our covers is that you can throw your cast cover in the washing machine at the end of the day or rotate out with another clean cover, as needed.  No more
    crawling into bed, wondering what germs you’re sleeping with at night, either! From FUNctional daily wear to cozy night time covers (Sleeperz!), we’ve got you covered!

And of course, as experts continue to study the outbreak & spreading pandemic, we encourage you to continue making your health a priority.  Consuming nutritious foods, washing your hands, getting rest (particularly while healing!) and getting some Vitamin D daily has been proven to boost the immune system.

We’re sending you healing hugs & wishing you a speedy recovery. Stay happy & healthy! This too shall pass…
