DryCast

When I left the hospital with my huge splint on my leg, one of the first things I thought about was: “how in the world am I going to shower?”. My first shower I tried the trash bag method. The top cotton part of my splint got all wet and I was uncomfortable the rest of the day. My next bath, I used DryCast!

DryCast is a simple, easy to use and is reusable! Picking your correct size DryCast is super easy, you just measure the total height of your cast and the circumference of the widest part and the DryCast will easily slip right over.

Using  the DryCast on was super easy, I simply stretched the ring and pushed my splinted foot through the bag and then enjoyed a nice long soak in the tub! If you have ever had a broken bone or any sort of thing on your body you were told not to get wet- you know how amazing it is to be able to bathe again!

Buy It: You can purchase a DryCast for both arm and foot injuries for 23.95 from Drycast.com!

    what a great product! I wish i had this when I sprained my ankle

    • Normally with a sprain, they will splint you. This was the ONLY ‘cast cover’ for baths I could get over my splint with out messing up the bandage!

    You find great products for every situations! I don’t know how many people I know that would have loved to have this. Well, next time someone has an accident I will be able to tell them about this neat product.

    This is awesome! I know a lot of people who would have loved to have this! I am considering a wrist surgery in the future where the doc informed me I would be in a cast for 6 weeks so if I make that decision I will definitely remember these! Thanks for the info!

  4. neat i wish i had one last december 2011 when both my legs were in casts.

  5. Bethany Fields says:

    Very cool, I have been lucky enough in my lifetime not to have to wear a cast! Knock on Wood!

  6. Thank you so much for the review! I am a nurse in an ER and I will totally tell my pts about this! What a great idea, it is so much better than the trash bag and tape! lol!

  7. Wow! Where was this when I had a cast, this is great for future reference I have three boys and although I hope they never get hurt realistically they probably will

  8. I broke my ulna completely in a car accident this year and was in a cast for 7 weeks. I tried this dry cast several times but it did not work for me. It was just too painful to push my arm in so I couldn’t even imagine trying to pull my arm out of it. The opening is quite small and even with help it didn’t work for me.
    I really hoped it would work. I succumbed to the old garbage bag over the cast.

    How neat, thank God I haven’t had to experience this, knock on wood.

  10. this product looks great, too bad we didn’t have one of those when my hubby broke his ankle a few years back!

  11. Michelle Spayde says:

    I’m hoping that we won’t need this, but at least now we know that it exists!

  12. jamie tucker says:

    what a great product. this might come in handy in the future. i have two kids and they are clumbsy. this looks simply and easy enough for a kid to handle.

  13. Sarah Osborne says:

    That’s genius! Such a simple product, and yet so useful.

  14. Fayth Chamberlain says:

    I really could have used this. Now I know!

  15. This would have came in handy when my son broke his arm last summer.

  16. That looks like it would work a whole lot better than a bag and rubber band!

  17. Rachael Henzman says:

    This seems like it would have come in handy last time I got hurt!

  18. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    so neat

  19. Pamela Halligan says:

    As a physical therapy technician, I am involved with many patients who could benefit from DryCast. Thanks for sharing this review.

  20. Angela Cash says:

    If only I had this when I broke my leg. I was a contortionist in the shower for 2 months!

  21. bill elliott says:

    Much better that the old plaster cast you couldn;t get wet

  22. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says:

    it’s amazing all the products that are available today

  23. Jill Jacoby says:

    I’ve been lucky and never had a cast either but I know plenty of people that have come up with crazy things out of desperation to take a bath.Now I will be able to tell them what to do.

  24. Good to know about this. A friend is having knee surgery and I’ll tell him about this.

  25. Richard Hicks says:

    So glad to see your review of this. Eventually someone in the family breaks a bone, has stitches or some other reason a hand or foot needs to be kept dry. Will keep them in mind next time something happems

  26. Jennifer Nielsen says:

    That is a great idea! I hope I never need one though 🙂

  27. wish they would’ve had these when i had my leg casts on

  28. I’ll keep this in mind if me or my family ever needs one… though I hope we never do!

  29. This idea is great. Tried the trashbag method before and like you, was unsuccessful. If I am ever in need, I’ll be sure to get one of these. Thanks for the tip.

  30. What a wonderful gadget! I broke BOTH of my wrists at the same time when I was 8 and I’m sure you can only imagine what a nightmare that was for my mother.

  31. Jennifer Hedden says:

    This is so nice. I didn’t know they made these. I cut my foot when I was younger and had to have stitches and this would have been so nice to have then. Thank you for sharing this great post!

  32. This looks so great and is such a simple idea. I had to wrap my arm in plastic bags once in the hospital when on Iv in order to have a shower as the nurses wouldn’t.

  33. kelly willis says:

    we are in the same boat broke knee

  34. Devon Franco says:

    Very clever! Hope I never need this but will keep it in mind for sure! 🙂

  35. Mia Dentice Carey says:

    VERY COOL!!!!!!!! That is so freaking clever!

  36. this is awesome

  37. Kristy Bodle says:

    This would have been nice when my husband had knee surgery.

  38. Kristy Bodle says:

    This would have been nice when my husband had knee surgery. I think the hospitals should give them to people when they go home.

  39. Cassandra Eastman says:

    Oh that looks so painful! I’m so sorry!!! What a great idea though, my best friends mother recently broke her ankle and has had a lot of trouble bathing because of it! Will have to let her know about this! Thank you!!!

  40. I want to get one of those. That’s so cool! Thank you for sharing this! 🙂

  41. jamie braun says:

    Awesome device! Will remeber this if we ever need it

  42. angie lilly says:

    man…I wish I would have had one of these back when I was in a wetcast for over a year due to an ankle injury!!!!
