A waterproof cast is simply made up of two parts.
Waterproof Padding and Fiberglass casting tape.
Both of those components are waterproof materials.
Our waterproof cast kits come with waterproof padding only.
However, you have the option to add fiberglass casting tape to the kit.
Each kit comes with 1-ft. of Saw Stop/Deflex
protective strip and rolls of padding.
This strip is used under the cast during cast removal.
This helps to prevent skin contact with the cast saw during removal.
*INFANT -5yrs only comes with 6" of deflex
Step#1. Choose the correct size/amounts.
Pediatric (Infant to 5yrs)-
Kit includes 1-roll 2" Waterproof Cast Padding.

GORE PROCEL® Cast Liner, formerly known as GORE Cast Liner, is a unique waterproof, breathable cast padding that allows you to continue your normal routine at home and at work without worrying about keeping your cast dry. Used in place of cotton underneath a fiberglass cast, GORE PROCEL® Cast Liner allows you to:
Bathe or shower
Minimize cast odor and itching
Wash your hands
Bathe your children
Wash the dishes, the car, the dog - without the hassle of trying to protect your cast from getting wet.
When a fiberglass cast padded with GORE PROCEL® Cast Liner gets wet, most of the water drains quickly out of the ends of your cast. The remaining moisture is warmed by body heat, becomes vapor and passes through the Cast Liner and fiberglass casting tape. No special drying is necessary.
Clinical experience throughout the country confirms GORE PROCEL® Cast Liner patients value the freedom of being able to get their cast wet. In fact, 98% of patients who have used GORE PROCEL® Cast Liner would recommend it to others.

My daughter broke her arm and was bummed that it happened during the summer. We bought this casting material and so glad we did. She is able to resume a normal, active, playful life. She not restricted at all. Beach, pool, shower...all good. Buy here as its much cheaper than your doctors office. My doctor even removed the old cast and put this one on. She just charged a $35 office visit. Worth it!
The setup was great, for my son. Great product & fast shipping, I did purchase the proper kit it was just not enough.

Waterproof cast saved our vacation!
My son broke his arm a week before we were to go on a Caribbean cruise. Thankfully his doctor told us about the Gore Procel waterproof cast padding. It allowed him to swim, shower and keep his arm dry after a few minutes of air drying. Without this cast we would not have had the opportunity to enjoy all the reasons to go on a Caribbean vacation.
Traditional casting measures are not waterproof and no matter how sweaty, how itchy, or how smelly your cast gets, you just have to grin and bear it until its time to get a new one. Being a marathon running having a water proof cast was very important to me because running makes for a sweaty cast. You can even use a mild soap to wash inside your cast, make sure you read the directions. I would recommend this product to everyone! Regardless of exercise, this product makes showering a breeze.

Happy they make this!
I was so happy to be able to take a bath with my cast on. It dried pretty fast too, about 20 mins and it completely dry. Don''t forget to add the tape, i did and had to order it next day air. I got hot pink! Took it to my doctor! He did not stock it.
