PICC Line Shower Cover Use Guide
Putting your arm inside the LimbO® Step 1: Using your thumb and forefinger, carefully grip your LimbO®’s black neoprene seal by its outer edge where it joins the clear plastic body of the protector. Insert your arm into the seal opening, gently pushing it into the protector. Be careful not to puncture the LimbO® with sharp fingernails or jewelry.
Step 2: Still gripping the LimbO® as described above, draw it up, easing the black seal over the bandage, then allow the seal to turn inwards as it slides up to secure.
Securing the LimbO® Step 3: When up as high as possible, pull the LimbO® 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.
Step 4: Ensure that the seal of your LimbO® lays flat against your skin and is wrinkle-free with a snug, comfortable fit to ensure waterproof protection.
Once you have finished using your LimbO® Step 1: Carefully roll the seal back on itself a little and ease it over your dressing. You will now be able to easily slide the protector off your arm.
Step 2: Hang your LimbO® upside down, away from any direct heat source, to dry. It will be ready to use whenever needed, assisting your recovery.
Care & Use Guidelines
Cleansing & Storage
Hand-wash the LimbO® as required. A mild disinfectant or detergent can be used.
Dry your LimbO® 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.
The LimbO® should be worn for a maximum of 20 minutes to avoid trapped warm air causing perspiration and therefore the risk of a damp dressing.
Please take extra care not to slip or trip when entering and exiting the shower.
