We enjoy working directly with our customers to make sure they choose the right product and size.
Why is DryCAST the best cast and bandage protector available?
The philosophy behind our patented design is simple. We’ve created a seal which is watertight, yet it leaves your limb free to move while it’s in the protector. The diaphragm seal design automatically seals as the protector is applied, guaranteeing a comfortable and secure water tight seal.
Why doesn’t DryCAST utilize a vacuum pump?
If you’ve used products that seal cast sleeves with pumps, you’ve probably experienced that uncomfortable freezing experience that comes with it. After creating the vacuum seal around your cast, you can no longer move your hand or leg. DryCAST seals without the need to create a vacuum. This allows your hand or leg to move freely. Take a look at the dramatic difference below:

Can I use the DryCAST Original Protector for swimming too?
The DryCAST Original Protector is designed for showering and while it can be used at the pool or beach, do not submerge in water. The reason is quite simple. The Protector will keep you dry but the active movements usually done while swimming may cause the sealed diaphragm to move and open, allowing water or moisture in.

Can I use the DryCAST Protector in the bath?
Yes, we’ve got cast covers for showering and bathing. You can use the DryCAST Original Protector in the bath, but you must be careful not to submerge the cover to make sure that the diaphragm seal remains tight.
What is the DryCAST Protector made of?
The DryCAST Original Protector bag is made of 8-ply Taffeta Vinyl which is 8 times stronger than most protectors out there. The Diaphragm is made from a Non-Latex Synthetic material which will not tear or disintegrate and will remain watertight. The Drycast Swim is made from very durable latex material which is used in wetsuits.
What is the warranty on Drycast products?
The limited warranty on our Drycast products is that they are free of manufacturing defects. It is intended for a single patient use. The Drycast Original Protector has a 4-6 week guarantee and the Drycast Swim has a 2-3 week guarantee.
