Measure around your arm in the area that you would like to protect from water. I.e., Above your PICC, Midline, or dressing. Refer to the sizing below to select your ideal size:
S-M: Ideal for an upper arm circumference of 8" - 12"
M-L: Ideal for an upper arm circumference of 12" - 20"
For customers who use the PICCPerfect® PICC Line Cover, see the size guide image for your ideal size.
1) Carefully grip the Shower Cover’s navy blue neoprene seal by its outer edge using your thumb and forefinger, where it joins the clear plastic body of the protector. Insert your arm into the seal opening, gently pushing it in.
2) Still gripping the Shower Cover as described above, continue dragging it up and slowly ease the navy seal over the affected area. Then allow the seal to turn inwards as it slides up to secure it.
3) When you’ve pulled the Cast Shower Cover up as high as possible, pull the Shower Cover down slightly so that the seal reverses itself, turning upwards so that the inner surface of the seal is in direct contact with your skin.
4) Ensure that the seal of your Cast Shower Cover lays flat against your skin and is wrinkle-free with a snug, comfortable fit to ensure waterproof protection.
removing the Cast Shower Protector
Carefully roll the seal back on itself a little and ease it over your dressing. You will now be able to slide the protector off your arm easily.
Hang your Shower Cover to dry - ensure it’s away from any direct heat source. It will be ready to use again whenever you need it.
care & storage
Hand-wash the Shower Protector as needed. You can use a mild disinfectant or detergent.
Dry your Shower Protector thoroughly away from direct heat before storing.
Avoid folding the neoprene seal and check that it remains undamaged before reusing.
Store in a dry place at room temperature.
Use for a maximum of 20 minutes to avoid trapped warm air causing perspiration and the risk of a damp dressing.
