What is a Cast Cover?

Cast covers are usually a long sleeve that slips over the cast and protects it against water during bathing, showering, and even swimming. Waterproof cast covers come in different sizes and are specifically designed to fit an arm, hand, foot, or leg. Most cast covers feature a plastic gasket at the top that creates a tight seal to prevent water penetration. Shower covers are made from medical-grade plastic or rubber and are resistant to tears and punctures.

Cast covers are not limited to only protecting your cast but also protect wound dressings, bandages, catheters, PICC lines, shunts, stomas, burns, lacerations, and more from potentially dangerous moisture. Rehab Store offers high-quality waterproof cast covers that effectively seal out water so you can take a shower comfortably without worrying about your injuries.

What is Cast Padding?

Cast paddings are padded materials used before the cast is applied to protect joints, bony prominences, and other pressure points. They conform well to the contour of the limb, provide cushioning and a layer of protection to the plastered wound, and keep the skin in the cast dry and comfortable.

What is Undercast Padding used for?

Cast padding is the second layer of the cast application process. Undercast padding is integral to any casting process; it adds comfort and protection to the cast. Cast padding is placed over the top of the stockinette. A casting pad prevents irritation and chafing and facilitates the healing of orthopedic fractures and other injuries. Without padding, walking around with a cast would be uncomfortable and unsafe.

There are sterile and non-sterile varieties of undercast padding available, depending on the need. For surgery and post-surgery application, sterile cast paddings are used to prevent infection and further damage to the wound. Non-sterile padding is suitable for splinting and casting applications where there are no wounds, sores, or surgical incisions.

Types of Undercast Padding

Rehab Store carries cast padding in different materials, including cotton, foam, viscose rayon, and polyester.

  • Cotton cast padding: Cotton is light and provides superior absorbency, keeping the cast comfortable and breathable.
  • Foam cast padding: Foam cast padding is durable and can be used for a variety of conditions that need protection. It can be used as a protective barrier around uncomfortable knee braces, added to casts and splints to reduce unwanted friction, or created insoles by trimming the foam padding to fit any shoe. Additionally, foam padding is used on the most common pressure points to absorb the impact of falls and collisions in contact sports.
  • Viscose rayon cast padding: Rayon is a synthetically made cellulose fiber that is thick, elastic, and highly absorbent. Due to its elasticity, It conforms well to varying body contours and allows patients to move freely. Rolyan Rayon Cast Padding is breathable, which prevents skin irritation.
  • Polyester cast padding: Polyester is lightweight, soft, strong, and absorbent, making it a great option for undercast padding. It is suitable for all types of cast material and is ideal for casting near sensitive skin or wounded areas.
