Directions for Use for ShowerSafe Cover

 

Caution:


  • The ShowerSafe cover is intended for use when bathing and showering. Do not submerge completely, or use when swimming, or for recreational purposes.
  • The ShowerSafe cover may become slippery when wet. Use caution to prevent accidental slips during bathing.
 

To Use ShowerSafe

 

  1. Remove ShowerSafe from package, stretch elastic cuff and slip cover over the area to be kept dry. Make sure that ShowerSafe completely covers the area to be protected.

  2. Position cover on limb until white plastic button is easy to reach.
  3. Stretch WrapAround rubber strap around limb until snug. Secure strap to white button. Tightness may be adjusted by using the various button holes provided. WrapAround strap should overlap both the skin and the elastic cuff to form a complete seal and prevent leaks.


    IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE WRAPAROUND STRAP COVERS SKIN AND SHOWERSAFE EQUALLY. IT MAY BE HELPFUL TO RECEIVE ASSISTANCE IN WRAPPING THE WRAPAROUND STRAP.

    IMPORTANT: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE WRAPAROUND STRAP SO AS TO CAUSE LACK OF CIRCULATION. REMOVE IMMEDIATELY IF NUMBNESS OR TINGLING OCCURS. DO NOT WEAR FOR EXTENDED PERIODS.

    IMPORTANT: BEFORE ENTERING BATH OR SHOWER, MAKE SURE NO PART OF THE SHOWERSAFE IS EXPOSED ABOVE THE WRAPAROUND STRAP. OTHERWISE, WATER MAY POOL THERE AND POSSIBLY LEAK INTO CAST WHEN WRAPAROUND BAND IS REMOVED.

    CAUTION: ShowerSafe may become slippery when wet. Keep out of the reach of children.

  4. Shower or bathe. Showering in a seated position is recommended when wearing ShowerSafe on leg and foot. Do not submerge the ShowerSafe cover.
  5. After use dry the outside of the ShowerSafe cover before removing to prevent moisture from contacting cast, bandage or dressing.
  6. Turn the ShowerSafe cover inside out and hang with the elastic cuff down to prevent pooling of water inside the closed end.
