Summer is here and your child needs to wear a cast all summer. What do you do now? Here's how to handle the summer with a child in a cast.

Keep it dry

To start, dealing with a cast on a child is stressful for everyone involved. Trying to use a plastic bag to cover it when taking a bath or shower is hard enough. Then throw in the summer time when all kids want to do is play in the pool or at the beach. Thankfully, DryPro has an amazing way to keep your sanity and your child happy this summer! DryPro has a few different products that can help your child get into the water this summer! Their main goal was to create a product that is to keep as cast dry. If your child is in a cast this summer, this is your best bet to have a good time this summer.





What is DryPro?

DryPro is cast cover that is patented vacuum sealed cover that goes over the cast for children to wear during the summer time. It is 100% waterproof and it can be completely submerged in water, even when swimming. This can also be a game changer for bath or shower time too. The cover is made with durable surgical rubber, so it stretches nicely over the cast.


If the cast is on your child’s foot, don’t worry, the rubber has non-skid grid to prevent slipping. Because there is an airtight seal, it helps prevent the cover from coming off. DryPro comes in different sizes: half arm, full arm, half leg, full leg. This is helpful so a child doesn’t have to wear a whole arm cover if it is only their wrist.



How does it work?

This isn’t a modified garbage bag product. After putting on the DryPro cover, you vacuum seal it to the arm or leg. This way no water will enter into the cast. When you remove the seal, it is released. Moms will appreciate this product because it not only allows them a less stressful summer, it helps their child get out of the house and play with their friends.
