This is very popular, especially at summertime with our water lifestyle. Waterproof casting is simply a synthetic cast with waterproof padding underneath. When you have a waterproof cast, you can get in the shower without putting a bag on, and can swim in a pool (depending on your injury). The water will flow between your skin and the padding. It is quick drying and therefore there are no bad odours. It is lightweight and comes in a variety of bright colours.

Many Exos products utilize the proprietary Boa® Closure System for ease of application, adjustability and accommodation of swelling and atrophy.

Plaster of Paris Casts
Plaster of Paris has been used for more than 100 years and is still used today as a versatile material which is used to splint/support fractures. The plaster of paris is impregnated into a cloth sheet and is then dipped into water. A chemical reaction occurs, hardening the material over the course of 10 minutes but allows for the cast to be appropriately molded into the desired shape. It is relatively strong but it cannot get wet from water or sweat. It is used for fractures, dislocations and soft tissue injuries.
Synthetic casting material is lighter than a normal plaster of paris cast, and will often last longer as it can withstand stress better. It comes in lots of different colours. There are then options of what type of padding goes under a synthetic cast. Having a synthetic cast on alone does not mean it is waterproof. The waterproof part of a cast is mainly to do with the padding that is applied underneath the cast. Some synthetic casts have a cotton wrap or cotton wool type padding underneath – this is not waterproof!
