Broken Arm or Broken Leg before Summer Vacation – DRYPro by Dry Corp has the answer
It happens every year around this time to thousands of people. Summer is just around the corner, you’re ready for vacation at the beach or lake house, or just looking forward to swimming all summer in the local pool. Then your break your arm or leg and you’ve got that dreaded cast on for 6 or 8 weeks or more and your doctor says you can’t get the cast wet. That means no swimming and even makes it very difficult to simply take a shower! Stress no more. Dry Corp has the answer! With the Dry Pro, though you have no more worries. The Dry Pro™, is a surgical latex sleeve that easily fits over a cast and vacuum seals to fully waterproof it, even when fully submerged. The Dry Pro™ gives people with fractures, amputation or wounds the opportunity to shower, swim or endure the elements without the worry of water damage. Go to our Facebook page to see all the smiling faces DRYPro has helped create.

“Poor Caleb has been in a cast or a boot pretty much since January and now he’s got the other leg in a cast. This is the happiest I’ve seen him doing physical things since Christmas. He was ecstatic to be out with his brothers, especially since the air conditioning couldn’t keep up with the heat!
Caleb is a huge football player with an even more huge cast – and he was swimming in a lake – where there’s all sorts of stuff about. I see that as the extreme conditions to try this under.We had an itty bitty little girl with a big cast all the way to a big guy in a huge cast — and everyone is still completely dry!
What a blessing this thing has been!
Well, they saved our summer!
They work! Wonderfully!“

I just had to thank you for this excellent product. My daughter broke her arm two weeks before the Florida Keys vacation we had been planning for months. Her surgeon was not comfortable putting her in a waterproof cast, so we bought a Dry Pro cast cover for her and hoped for the best. I never imagined it would work as well as it did – in fact, I made sure to locate an Urgent Care center near our resort assuming that sometime during the week we’d have to have her cast replaced. With her trusty Dry Pro over her cast, my daughter snorkeled, para sailed, swam with dolphins, dove and flipped in the pool, kayaked, jet skied and was generally in the water from sun up to sun down. You saved our vacation 🙂 Thanks! -Michelle

Hi, my name is Abbie. I am 16 years old and broke my ankle in June at basketball camp. I ended up in a cast three weeks before going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Thanks to the dry pro cast cover I was able to swim in the pool and ocean. I even walked up and the down the beach with it on to prevent getting sand in my cast. Thanks to the cover it was a great vacation. Thanks for providing such a great product.

Thank you so very much! TV aside, I cannot begin to tell you how much the DryPro product meant to our family. I cannot help but smile when I think of the moments we were able to share together with our children in Hawaii- many of which would have never happened without the DryPro cast cover.
Like all parents, nothing is more troubling then watching your children be unhappy or distressed over things that seemingly you can do nothing about. We were certainly feeling that way when she broke her leg- not to mention having to watch her emotions as she was told by the doctor she would not be able to go in the water for 6-8 weeks. Her mom is a swim teacher, we live in California, our vacation was planned around mostly water activities in Hawaii- you do the math. Things were pretty sad around our home for the week leading into our trip.
You may notice from the photos we submitted, she is actually wearing an “arm” cover on her leg. Turns out in my haste to try and find anything that may work; I ordered the wrong size leg cover. Once it arrived and we found it was too small, we called and your customer service folks provided us the list of “local” retailers where we could maybe find one in stock. After a number of calls from the list you provided, we found someone about 30 miles away who had a few options in stock. We made the trip (the morning before we were supposed to leave) and were disappointed that he was sold out of the size we needed for her leg. We were able to exchange our mail ordered leg cover at the local retailer for an arm cover that worked just great!!! I am certain there were people wondering why she looked like she had a thumb sticking out of her foot. J
We cannot thank you enough for the product, service and responsive retailer that made for some of the best of family memories!
My only regret is that there is not enough awareness about your products so that others could benefit.
Should you need any other photos from our “Dry Pro vacation” (yes, that what our kids now call that trip), or any additional information from me please just let me know.

In an effort to continually improve our products and their effectiveness, we’ve designed a new higher volume pump for the DRYPro® cast and bandage protector. The pumps will allow patients to evacuate the air quicker from even the largest protector. We’ve also had them specially formulated to be an exact match for our signature “DRYPro® Blue” color.
