Wear a DryPro Waterproof Cast Cover

Wear stretchy clothes that can fit over your cast
• Shirts with short or no sleeves
• Pants with an elasticated waist or skirts, which are easier to put on and take off
    How to carry your belongings
    • If you have crutches, don’t forget to take a backpack
    • When you can’t carry a handbag or backpack, wear clothes with pockets

    How to get dressed while wearing a cast
      Avoid any movements which cause pain during the dressing process
      • Put your shirt or pant sleeve over your cast first to minimize movement of your casted arm or leg
      • Avoid clothes with buttons or zippers
      • Ask assistance to a family member or a friend to get dressed
        Additional tips:
        • Drape a shawl over your shoulders to stay warm instead of struggling with putting on and off your jacket
        • Don’t forget a high-quality cast protector to keep your cast dry
