How To Keep A Cast Dry In The Shower

Adaptive ProductsHolly D. GrayComment

As soon as we found out that Caleigh was going to have fiberglass leg casts; I knew that we had to simplify her already time consuming shower time. I have fond memories of my brother's arm cast. It stunk in the general six year old boy kind of way and definitely got wet often. I remember taping black trash bags to his arm for showers. Since Caleigh is so sensitive to tape adhesives this was the last resort approach. There had to be a better way to shower while keeping Caleigh's casts dry....

So I went shopping on Amazon and found the Seal Tight Freedom Cast/Bandage Protector.

I ordered the Pediatric leg length, but for Caleigh's little legs I could have ordered the pediatric arm length. You can see in the image below how much length is left over. I could wear the darn things. 

For ten bucks a piece and prime shipping it was totally worth every penny. We pop the membrane on and over each leg cast and start showering with no worries. 

So far we've had no issues with leaks or with the membrane being too tight. It's amazing when we find products that can simplify and speed up daily tasks. I tend to fall in love and shout from the roof tops. 


An ongoing series of waste collections from medically fragile individuals over a 24 hour period. 

Last Fall I started the One Day Project. I'm asking those of you with medically fragile children or family members to collect the waste from a 24 hour period and send it to me. With this shipment I then curate a photograph and installation. I will send you a print of your One Day and postcards that can be mailed to anyone you chose including your representatives. My goal with this ongoing project is to have hundreds if not thousands of these portraits. Please visit my portfolio for more information on collection and shipping details.
