Waterproof Cast Padding
Q: What is Aquacast Liner?
A: AquaCast Liners are waterproof, breathable, and washable, minimizing cast-related frustrations. Our liners replace the cotton liners and stockinettes underneath a fiberglass cast, giving patients the freedom to continue their normal daily activities – bathing, showering, and even swimming. AquaCast Liners can be used with any type of fiberglass cast.
Q: Why should you use Aquacast Liner?
A: AquaCast Liner is the best waterproof cast liner. Developed by engineers in conjunction with an orthopaedic surgeon and OTCs from across the country, AquaCast Liner has become the choice for hospitals and practices looking to provide the best patient care possible. Ask your healthcare provider for a cast with an AquaCast Liner. All AquaCast Liner products are not made with natural rubber latex.
Q: How Aquacast Liner works?
A: AquaCast Liner is made with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) which contains billions of tiny pores that are much larger than moisture vapor molecules but much smaller than liquid water droplets. The AquaCast waterproof liner remains dry while your skin gets wet. Water will drain quickly out of the ends of the cast. The patient’s body temperature heats up the remaining water causing it to vaporize and pass through the liner and the fiberglass cast tape. All AquaCast Liner products are not made with natural rubber latex.
Q: Why Aquacast Liner is a better choice compare to cast cover?
A: You can sweat, shower and swim in our AquaCast Liner – immediately – without the hassle of having to put on a cover.
Why wear a bag when you can have a TRULY waterproof cast? Don’t take the chance of the cast cover failing, getting your cast wet, and having to get another cast applied. Think of the benefits:
Ready to go when you are
No bag to wear EACH and EVERY time
About the same cost and a lot more convenient
Wash hands to protect yourself from germs
Better skin outcomes
Sweat. Shower. Swim. In an AquaCast Liner
