Waterproof cast cover after surgery

Foot and Ankle surgeons recommend Dry Pro because it allows patients to swim, shower, and enjoy summer at the pool immediately after major foot surgery.
Dry Pro is so completely and totally waterproof, between the waterproof fabric and the vacuum seal, that you can dive off a diving board or go to the beach and ride the ocean waves while keeping your cast dry!

After major foot surgery, it is important that patients start an exercise conditioning program to help them return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle.

Swimming is a great low-impact activity to do post surgery. With the Dry Pro you don’t have to wait weeks to start getting back in shape.

Swimming offers the ultimate workout with low impact on the legs/feet. There are a wealth of exercises that can be done in the water, many of which use weights and water resistance to build muscle tone.

Water therapy is also a great way to recover from a bunionectomy. The podiatrist has seen how water therapy is able to speed up recovery time by doing simple foot movements in water for several weeks. “My doctor said it put me 6 weeks ahead of schedule compared to his other patients who weren’t as diligent. It was fun but hard work that paid off.”

If you are recovering from major surgery, Dry Pro can help you stay active and recover fast. What are you waiting for  – We specialize in getting you WET!!!
