XeroSox Waterproof Cast Cover
Size Chart Arm Cover
NOTE: Cast cover opening will be tight when going over the cast. It needs to be tight so it can fit snug around the arm or leg. Fitting snug will allow it to create a vacuum waterproof seal.
NOTE: The above size ranges are the min and max to fit the xerosox. If you are close in the region of +/- 1/4 inch it may fit you. XeroSox is intended to fit the general population and may not fit everyone. If you are outside the above size range this item may not fit you.
How To Get Measurements for the XeroSox™
1) Measure Limb Circumference
Arm: Measure the circumference of the arm about two inches above (proximal to) the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the elbow, measure mid upper arm (bicep).
Do not measure around the cast, but around the bare arm or leg as in the photo.
Leg: Measure the circumference of the leg just above the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the knee, measure mid thigh.
2) Measure Length
Arm: Measure from the tip of the middle finger to where the circumference was measured (in step 1).
Leg: Measure from the back of the heel to where the circumference was measured. For younger children the full arm and full leg XeroSox® offer the best fit; measure from their mid bicep or mid thigh. Don't worry if the XeroSox® is longer than it needs to be. Move the extra length to the middle of the limb, the excess material will just shrink in on itself when the vacuum is created.
3) Use Size Charts
Using the size charts select the XeroSox® size that is right for you or your patient.
The circumference is more important than the length because it is critical for a good seal.
*Note the half arms and half legs are not normally used for children. Pediatric patients almost always use full arm or leg XeroSox®.
