The Differences Between the DryPro Prosthetic Protector and Leg Cast Protector
Here at DryPro, sometimes we get questions about the differences between our prosthetic protector and our leg cast and wound protector. You might be wondering if they are both made to cover a leg, how are they different? Here’s how to determine which product will best fit your needs:
While both covers are composed of high-quality surgical latex and are durable enough for repeated use, the prosthetic cover has an extra layer of material that guarantees usage for up to one year. Meanwhile, the cast and wound cover will last up to 90 days, servicing a customer for the typical amount of time a patient will need a cast, wound, or splint protected.
Our prosthetic cover comes in full sizes only, providing extra length for purchasers to wear a shoe with their prosthesis if they desire. Our cast and wound protectors are available in half sizes that offer below-the-knee protection for those that need less coverage after a foot or ankle injury. Finally, while the prosthetic protector is a neutral colored tone that mimics human flesh, the cast and wound protector bears a bright blue tone that helps customers tell the difference between the two products.
Though these products have specific differences that cater to the different needs of our customers, both products use our patented vacuum seal waterproof technology to create 100% protection from water. Both covers are able to be fully submerged in water, making them perfect for showering, bathing, and swimming. In addition, both come with a non-skid grid on the bottom for slip-free showers and are trimmable at the opening for customers to create a custom fitting product. Whether you have a prosthesis and would like to stand in the shower for the first time or are interested in protecting your cast or wound from water, we have the waterproof product you’re looking for.
