Patient Kit: Short Leg Cast
AquaCast® Short Leg Cast Kits include waterproof, breathable rolls made with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) that provide the necessary padding and cushion beneath the fiberglass material that forms the outer shell of your cast. Also included is a roll of Saw Stop DE-FLEX Protective Strip that provides another level of protection when the cast is being removed. Available in Small, Medium and Large Kits. Sizing chart is below.
Choose Size: Based on age or measuring the tip of the middle finger to the elbow crease:
- Small: Child (Under 10 Years Old) or above measurement is less than 10” (25.5 cm)
- Medium: Adolescent or Small Adult (10-17 Years Old) or above measurement 10” to 16” (25.5cm to 40.5cm)
- Large: Adult (18+ Years Old) or above measurement 16” and over (40.5cm and over)
The kit identified for your situation is based on typical applications with experienced technicians. Patient arm size varies greatly so we therefore suggest to err on the side of going to a larger size or you can contact your provider to confirm roll size and quantity needed. For special casts (i.e. Ulna Gutter, thumb spica, etc) please check with your provider for a recommendation. Fiberglass, which forms the outer protective shell, is available at your healthcare provider's location.
