Description

Waterproof PICC Line Protectors

Simply put, our products allow you to get wet while the area around your PICC line stays dry!

The New Latex Free DryPro for PICC lines is now available in the United Kingdom and is a great new addition to our range of waterproof cast covers. If you have a PICC (Peripherally inserted central catheter) you know the area around where the PICC is inserted is prone to infection. You will find that using the Latex Free DryPro PICC line cover when showering or swimming helps to keep bacteria and other contaminates away from the vein the PICC is inserted in.

If you’re receiving infusion therapy for antibiotics, chemotherapy, hydration, or TPN (total parenteral nutrition) and have a PICC line, with our product you’ll be able to take a relaxing and refreshing shower or bath.

PICC How it Works

Step 1: Trim if Needed

PICC line cover sleeves. Trim if Needed.
Stretch the PICC line cover over the good arm first to see how it fits. If the DryPro is too tight, trim along the lines at the appropriate opening. Be careful not to trim too much, make sure a snug, flush fit is maintained around the arm.

Step 2: Slide On

PICC line shower cover. Slide On
Stretch the cover over the PICC site until completely covered, plus an additional inch on either side. The top and bottom opening should be smooth against the skin. Be carefull of fingernails or sharp objects that could puncture the protector.

Step 3: Pump out all the air

PICC line sleeve. Pump out all the airContinuously press the pump until all the air is evacuated and the pump becomes flat. Move your arm around and make sure the seal remains intact, then remove the pump and put the cap on. After creating the vacuum seal, observe the DryPro for about 5 minutes before going into the water. In order to remove the DryPro simply slide your fingers under the top cuff to let the air in and slide it off.

It’s that simple!

Notes: Do not leave the DryPro on for extended periods of time. We recommend removing it after every 45 minutes of use. Do not use in vascular compromised patients

    I ordered a PICC line cover having carefully measured my arm. I am a petite size 8. My measurements indicated I should order small. It arrived very promptly but was far too small. I was thinking of exchanging it for the next size. Having read the reviews I telephoned. Unfortunately I didn’t speak to the popular James, but to a woman whom I found lacking in empathy. She made it quite clear that I couldn’t exchange it but would need to reorder the new size, pay for it and in due course I would be refunded. I was so put off by her manner that I simply returned the product. I obviously hadn’t read the terms and conditions carefully and raised a query by email to which James sent a clear and friendly reply. I’m not sure whether you should go for a slightly bigger size, or if that would cause problems too. The theory is fine but the reality wasn’t successful for me.

    Delighted with this product.
    I have upper arm Piic line and everything is bone dry after showering.
    It is bit expensive but worth every penny.
    I would recommend this product.

    I got the first cover sizing wrong so had to order another in larger size. Quite costly.
    Excellent waterproof cover which makes showering more relaxing.
    The pump mechanism is difficult to get off one handed.

    Does what it says on the box.
    Make sure you order the correct size that will be tight to your arm to ensure the vacuum works properly.
    I would recommend this product

    I bought this cover for an upper arm PICC line, having been desparate to swim on holiday. Overall it has been excellent- definately totally splash proof, although I did not try to fully swim. Comfortable despite a tight seal, and a great way of keeping picc line fully dry on holiday. My PICC is high up my upper arm- have a look at the measurement table, but fitted as the dimensions said- for high bicep lines I would suggest as tight as possible for the upper measurement and can always be cut to make it a bit wider as needed. This made the seal as tight as possible. Cannot recommend enough and definately allowed me to join in on holiday as much as possible- brilliant.

    I have had my cover for a couple of weeks now. I didn’t trust the device at first but need not have worried. The sleeve fitted perfectly and keeps my arm and picc line dressing bone dry.
    At the week I choose to put the cover to the ultimate test and took my son swimming. He was careful not to pull on the sleeve and we had 100% total success.
    Swimming is now helping me with Physio for the surgery site and has given me back some freedom. Chemo wipes me out too much for running so swimming fits the bill for now.
    My only grumble would be the colour. Its no where flesh coloured and stands out when you are wearing it so what not offer it in different colours? I might have cancer but I like to think I still have style.

    Half way through my chemo and required a picc line as veins had given up! Although a picc line meant no more cannulas, I was very worried about getting it wet in the shower. Went online and found this product available in the UK. So thanks cast covers. It works brilliantly and the dressing remains bone dry!!! I can enjoy my showers without any worry!!! A must for any picc line patient.

    Initially I ordered a cover that was too loose (my measurements were borderline between 2 sizes) I emailed them and got an immediate response from James suggesting I return the original for a replacement which then arrived promptly. I am very pleased with the product which enables me to shower and bathe without any worries about getting my PICC line wet. Wonderful customer service!

    Purchased this product a while ago now and it has given me a new lease of life. Being able to have a bath or shower without worrying that my PICC line is getting wet is amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    My PICC line is in my bicep. I ordered the small as the measurement including the PICC line was ten inches. When the cover arrived it was a little on the tight side so it was a struggle to get on. I read I the instructions that it was possible to cut the cover to make it bigger. I called the company for advice on whether to cut or to return the cover for a larger size. I spoke to James who was extremely helpful and I cut around one centimetre which then made it a perfect fit. I’ve used this in the swimming pool and even tried it out in the steam room. Each occasion the protected dressing is completely dry when removing the cover. Very happy with this product.

    I have my PICC line inserted about half way up my bicep. I use the protector daily for showering and have also been swimming with it once. My dressing is always bone dry so really pleased with the product, just means I’m not worried in the shower about getting it wet because no matter how well it was clingfilmed, some moisture would invariably get in. Very straight forward to take on and off, not time consuming. Would definately recommend to anyone.

    The Dry Pro works well in the shower. I have my PICC located at the crease of my arm.

    Great product. My advice would be, if your PICC is high on your arm to buy a good big size. If it just fits it can be difficult to pull it on over the dressing. Really makes showering easy. Lovely people to deal with.
