Arm Cast Covers
What is an Arm Cast?
An arm cast also known as an orthopedic cast is a product normally made of fiberglass or plaster. It is used on different parts of the body to help stabilize and hold body structures for example, a broken bone or bones. The cast helps keep a broken bone in place until healing has occurred or confirmed.
Plaster consist of cotton bandage that has been combined with Plaster of Paris, which hardens after it has been wet. It is more on the heavier side and dry much slower then what is used today. For example, Synthetic materials are regularly used, are lighter and dry much faster than plaster bandages.
Plaster is easily molded to fit better and much smoother meaning it doesn’t snag on your clothes or scrape the skin.
A cast saw or oscillating saw are typically used to remove or cut rigid material such as plaster or fiberglass to not harm soft tissue. Operated shears normally done manually may be used on pediatric or other patients which may be affected by the noise of the saw.
Before arm casts, the toughest thing for any person with fractured arms was to take a bath, shower or use the washroom. Casts getting moisturized is not only a problem relating to an uncomfortable feeling, but it can also be an invitation to several other medical problems as moisturized cast would allow moisture to pass through it oxidized metal staples or rods, which can lead to several medical issues. But thankfully today there are arm cast covers that are made up from plastic and have a good seal that allows you to even swim while having your cast on.
