Use a similar application as seen below for the leg by doubling up the stockinette.
*This product should be applied by a trained medical professional or for educational training. Always consult a doctor before use. Make sure the doctor or technician knows how to apply the cast from the video instructions provided on this site. Note: A waterproof cast is an alternative to traditional casting materials that cannot get wet. If a traditional cast gets wet, it is ruined and must be removed immediately. However, this does not mean that you can get your waterproof cast wet all day long and not allow a drying period. We recommend that you allow a drying period between wetting times such as bathing or swimming. A hairdryer on a low setting can speed up the process, but body heat needs to evaporate the remaining damp water inside the cast. This allows the patient to get a cast wet, and not be ruined. However, the cast still needs a drying time that will vary by person and cast type between wet periods to achieve full dryness. Never apply fiberglass cast tape directly to the skin.

What is the difference between OrthoTape OrthoH20, AquaCast, and Delta Dry?

The three main differences are:

  • OrthoTape OrthoH20 is an easy one-piece design. It also has more breath-ability and does not pool water at the elbow or heel of the foot.
  • AquaCast has been around for a while now and many doctors are familiar with it.
  • Delta Dry, is a lightweight material and can dry fast and is easy to apply.

Will my Doctor put this on for me?

It usually depends on the doctor as to whether they want you to be in a waterproof cast. Usually, you will ask one and they may say no, and you ask another and they are happy to apply it for you. So it is best to ask around to get the right doctors as they all differ in opinion. Let your doctor know you will be compliant with all instructions and take care of the waterproof cast. If you do find a doctor that is willing to work with you. Let us know as we are compiling a list and can share it with others like you.

Why don't doctors already carry this item?
It may be they need to become more familiar with it. It could also be due to space in the office for inventory. Many insurances do not cover it, so it is an out-of-pocket cost. Either way, you can always take it to them or have us ship it directly to their office for your visit. Please let your doctor know about us so they can tell their other patients about us.

How long does it take to dry and do I use soap to clean it?
The cast can dry to touch in as little as 1/2 hour to an hour. It should be completely dry in under 12 to 24 hours. It is recommended that you give yourself one day's rest in between getting wet times to allow your skin to dry out better. To dry it faster, use a hair dryer on a low setting. It gets the cast dry super fast. To clean use gentle soap and if it does begin to stink, you can soak it in a mixture of 1 cup hydrogen peroxide to 1-gallon water strength. Mix in 1/3 cup of rubbing alcohol to kill any bacteria in the cast. 

How fast can you ship it?
We ship super fast, same day by 2 PM EST. At the checkout, you will be able to upgrade your shipping to faster options. It is best to get it in advance of your doctor's appointment rather than the day of. Always plan and get the supplies you need sooner than you need them. True you may need to do Overnight, but it is better to have the supplies in hand 1-2 days before the appointment.

Can you swim in salt water or chlorine with the cast?
Yes,  The cast is designed to handle both salt water and chlorine.  Always remember to flush it with clean water to remove the salt or chlorine.

What comes with the waterproof cast kit?
OrthoTape OrthoH20 waterproof padding kits come with a tubular stockinette that is put on first. The casting tape (the hard shell) is also included so remember to choose a color for your tape. The casting tape is the outer shell of the cast.
