The basic function of a cast cover is to protect a cast from the environmental damage, and it also helps in keeping the cast hung around your neck, if it is on hand, without causing much discomfort to the wearer. But over the years the function of cast covers has undergone a seismic change. These days, cast covers are used not only to keep casts in place. The functions have become multifaceted, which we will discuss in the paragraphs below.

Changing nature of cast covers

From being a humble cover to protect cast and broken bone to a medium which people have used to write “get well soon” messages and display affection to a comfortable solution to carrying a broken limb to style a statement, a cast cover has travelled many miles.

The recent most development in the cast covers is the use of a cast cover as a fashion accessory by a person with broken hand or leg. Gone are the days when cast covers were unattractive, and looked as plain as vanilla ice-cream. Now cast covers come in various designs and color which somewhat keeps the moral of the patient using it high by adding color to the life of the person suffering the agony of a broken limb. This works like magic and it reduces the intensity of psychological discomfort caused by the broken bone.It may not work in lowering the intensity of physical discomfort involving the broken bone, but a sling-style cast cover may reduce the burden of carrying the broken hand by evenly distributing the weight of the hand.

Why to use cast covers

Its cool design and stylish look is not why a person buys or uses a cast cover. He or she buys it because the personhas certain problem to solve, which cannot be solved otherwise.

One of the problems that people face is the itching sensation inside of the cast.A technologically advanced cast covers works on the moist area under the cast making it cooler and drier, which keeps the inside of the cast from developing itching sensation.

Another problem people faces when they get plaster in the hand of leg are keeping it dry when taking bath. To that end, people try many ingenious solutions, some of which work well, while, others fall flat on the face making the cast wet, which we all know is not a desirable situation. Modern cast covers provide waterproof solution to protect hands and legs from getting wet when taking bath or exposed to water. Some of the cast covers are washable and made from stretchable fabric, which snugly fits on the broken limb.

It is interesting to see how people have found a solution to keep their mind away from the injury they suffered, which could have lowered the morale; instead they found a solution to turn weakness (a broken hand of a leg) into strength using a beautiful cast cover.

Cast covers will continue to perform its basic function of keeping the cast in place, but they will not limit their work at that point. They will go much further and make their cast covers tell the story of their injury. The solution is indeed beautiful.
