Water Protection

Keeping your Wounds and Casts Dry

Joan Hodges - West Sussex

" I recently had the misfortune to be diagnosed with Cellulitis. This is a bacterial infection of the skin and the tissues beneath it, and it manifested itself on the lower part of my leg spreading to the ankle. The affected area was hot, very tender and red, and I felt generally unwell. The treatment is a course of Antibiotics, but it took two to three weeks for the "Acute" stage to subside.

As my leg was so tender and hot it was most uncomfortable to get it wet when I showered, so I was so pleased and relieved when I found waterproof ArmRx Leg Gloves. This is a full length plastic stocking which fits up to the thigh. It is secured in place with a strap, then the top folded over and another strap put in place. This gave full protection to my leg which remained dry, whilst I was able to shower the rest of my body as usual. This was absolutely marvellous, especially as it took some time for the condition to subside. (It is particularly important for me to have a hot shower in the morning, as I also suffer from Lumbar Spondylitis and the hot water helps to get the muscles relaxed.)

I also found that it worked well in the Hydro-Therapy Pool where I go every week. The Leg Glove keeps the water away from my skin and acts as an added protection from possible infection. Cellulitis once contracted, although not always Acute, seems to be a Chronic condition, but with the use of the Leg Glove I can still go to the Hydro Therapy Pool to exercise on a regular basis.

The product really does do what it claims. It gives protection whilst showering or bathing, and would also help other conditions, eg, if wearing a plaster cast, bandage, etc. or for any reason where you want to protect the arm or leg from getting wet. They fit either men or women. An added bonus is that I can use it myself and remain independent.

Having discovered the product I am really keen to "Spread the Word"! I haven't had occasion to use the Arm Glove, but I keep a packet of them as well as the Leg Gloves as an insurance against possible need!"

“I had both hand and foot surgery within months of each other and ArmRx was recommended for bathing by my Pharmacist - I bought a multi pack box with each circumstance. I never missed a bath and ArmRx never leaked - not once. What a tremendous and simple watertight product you have! And comfortable, too!”

"I landed incorrectly during a jump at my last race which resulted in a shattered wrist injury to my left arm. The severity of the break was such that a pin apparatus with a large metal stabilizer bar was bolted in to hold the wrist in place during the healing period of 6 weeks."

"An ArmRx Arm Glove was recommended by my Walgreen's Pharmacist. Due to the normal size limitations of the arm glove, it would not fit over the monstrous bandage on my arm.

So my Pharmacist recommended the ArmRx Leg Glove to protect my injury from water penetration. It easily fit over my large size cast and using the small size band application, I was able to properly fit it to my arm.

Even with the excess plastic gathered under the bands, the ArmRx glove has never leaked - and I am still using the first one from my four pack. I have the cast off now but will continue with the pin brace and wrap for four more weeks.

I wanted to say thanks to you folks at ArmRx for making my bad situation better - also, I have recommended ArmRx to my Doctor who originally told me to either tape a garbage bag over it or hold it out of the water during a shower!"
