How Does the LimbO Foot Protector Work?
Using the self-sealing and self-supporting design, the LimbO Foot Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector will prevent the penetration of water into wound dressings or plaster casts. This will allow for regular showers without the need to replace a plaster cast or wound dressing.
What Is the LimbO Foot Protector Made Of?
The protector comprises of closed cell neoprene with bonded nylon fabric outer layer and opaque garment body. These materials prevent moisture from entering either through the garment itself, or from the top.
Will the LimbO Protector Fit My Foot?
The LimbO Foot Protector is available in two sizes, Small and Medium/Large. To find the right fit for your foot, it's important to consider two factors:
- The circumference of your ankle – please measure just above the ankle and consult the table below. It's important that the seal fits your ankle as tightly as possible.
- The maximum circumference of the cast or dressing – the seal is quite stretchy, but please make sure the maximum stretch of your chosen size will fit over the cast.
|LimbO Protector Size ||Small ||Medium/Large |
|LimbO Code ||M20 ||M25 |
|Ankle Circumference (cm) ||20 to 25cm ||23cm to 34cm |
|Ankle Circumference (Inches) ||8 - 10" ||9 - 13" |
|Maximum Stretch (cm) ||33cm ||40cm |
|Maximum Stretch (Inches) ||13" ||16" |
Please note that the LimbO Foot Cover will only fit up to UK shoe size 11 (men) or 12 (women).
For Which Conditions Is the LimbO Foot Cover Suitable?
The LimbO Foot Protector is designed to shield your foot below the ankle from water and moisture. This makes the LimbO suitable for virtually any condition that affects your foot or toes. Users have reported excellent results when using the LimbO Cover with the following conditions, especially:
- Foot surgery
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Toenail surgery
- Toe surgery
While these conditions have been mentioned specifically, the LimbO can also be used alongside other conditions as well.
Can I Take a Bath with the LimbO Cover?
While the LimbO Protector is designed to be completely airtight, it is not suitable for bathing or swimming. The cover will protect your dressing even during a longer shower, but leaving it fully submerged in water for prolonged periods will potentially cause the seal to leak.
The LimbO should also not be worn for more than 20 to 30 minutes at a time. This is because the trapped air can get quite warm, which causes condensation.
Can I Use the LimbO Foot Protector with Any Cast or Dressing?
The LimbO Foot Protector is available in two sizes, Small and Medium/Large, which can stretch up to 13" and 16" respectively. This means that you can use the protector on any cast or bandage that has a maximum circumference of either 13" or 16". Before making a purchase, please make sure the seal will definitely fit over your cast or dressing.
Is the LimbO Protector Suitable for Toe Injuries?
The LimbO Foot Protector is designed to cover everything below the ankle, and keep your foot completely dry. This absolutely includes your toes as well.
How Durable Is the LimbO Waterproof Protector?
The durable construction of the LimbO Foot Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector will last through the average user's duration of treatment. To make sure you're getting the most out of this LimbO product, follow the simple maintenance guidelines in the user manual after each use.
How Do I Use The Protector?
The LimbO Foot Plaster Cast and Dressing Protector is supplied with a comprehensive manual that ensures optimal use of the product. Before starting, please check that the neoprene seal is undamaged, and carefully follow the fitting instructions for your LimbO to ensure that it is watertight. You are then free to enjoy your shower safe in the knowledge that your wound or plaster will remain dry.
Please note: The LimbO Protector is a non-sterile product and should not be used on open or undressed wounds, or when any danger of infection is present. If you intend to use your LimbO Protector while under medical care, always obtain advance approval from your medical provider.
Please note: The seal of the LimbO should NOT be submerged in water and that if this happens, water may penetrate the protector.
