April 17, 2008 - PRLog -- It happens every year around this time to thousands of people. Summer is just around the corner, your ready for your vacation at the beach or lake house, or your just looking forward to swimming all summer in the local pool. Then your break your arm or leg and you've got that dreaded cast on for 6 or 8 weeks or more and your doctor says you can't get the cast wet. That means no swimming and  even makes it very difficult to simply take a shower!

With the Dry Pro, though you have no more worries. The Dry Pro™, is a surgical latex sleeve that easily fits over a cast and vacuum seals to fully waterproof it, even when fully submerged. The Dry Pro™ gives people with fractures, amputation or wounds the opportunity to shower, swim or endure the elements without the worry of water damage.

Check out www.DryCorp.com for what just a few of our thousands of happy customers have to say about their experiences with our products. Here's a few examples;
  When my daughter broke her arm, the only time she cried was when I told her she wouldn't be able to swim at the cabin.  DryPro saved the day. This is my Eva on the rocks on Rainy Lake in Canada. The cast cover fit like a dream and was perfect both in the water and in the sand.  It held up well on the rocks as well, we were really impressed.  I was also pleased with the great customer service at Dry Pro. When Fed Ex Ground lost our first shipment Dry Pro got me a new cover overnight before we left on vacation. THANK YOU!

  We had been waiting (and saving) for over a year to take a Family Cruise Vacation. Our trip was schedule for September 19th and our little four years old broke his arm on the 14th at school.
Our doctor does not carry waterproof casts because he said that they can build up mildew after a couple of days so Dylan got a regular cast.He got extremely upset when they told him that he could not get it wet since he loves the water.

Dylan is our only son, the trip was pretty much planned for him and we thougth about canceling our vacation...until I found your website!!!

As you can see in the pictures I have attached, he had a great time and his waterproof cast cover worked great. At least a hundred people asked about it and we definitively spread the word for Dry Corp. I will give the brochures to our doctor so he can recommended too.

If any of these pictures qualify for the contest please entered any of them and if you have a problem opening the files, please send me an e-mail back and I'll mailed them.

Thank you so much for your product and for the convenient overnight shipping!!!

You saved us!!

  My three year old son, Gabriel, broke his left arm just 3 days before we left on vacation to Napa, CA where it was 90+ degree outside. My son is part frog and basically lives in the pool so we were really concerned about how we were going to keep him out of the water in the hot weather with a broken arm.

Luckily I had heard about Dry Pro covers and we had one sent to where we were staying in Napa after talking with your very knowledgeable representatives over the phone.

Gabriel used it every day as we were often in the water for 1-2 hours per day for a week. It gave him the freedom that he needed to swim. He loved every minute of the time in the water as you can see by the smile on his face. Thank you for your help.


  My son recently (8-30-07) had to have a cast placed on his right leg to try and correct a muscle/tendon issue. We have a pool and I didn't want to see him miss out on the end of his summer. I purchased the Dry Pro on 9-01-07 and received it within a few days. Our first test was the obvious which was to let him try it out in the shower. It worked just fine. Then came the swimming pool. I knew then that this was a good product. For him to be able to still enjoy the pool while wearing a cast was wonderful. However, on 9-09-07 we decided take a trip to our nearby water park. This is when I realized that this was not a good product, IT WAS A GREAT PRODUCT! As you can see by the pictures, the Dry Pro definitely got a workout. That's a 70 foot vertical drop at about 55 miles an hour! Also, he is not allowed to use crutches, which means he had to walk around on the concrete all day while wearing the Dry Pro. The coating on the bottom held up great! After

8 hours of this, the Dry Pro came through with flying colors. We would ride for an hour then take it off as recommended. After a short break, we would go for another hour. Needless to say, my son had a blast thanks to the Dry Pro!
  At your suggestion, we purchased the cast protector from Pelton's Pharmacy in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Our daughter had an external fixator place on her left arm at the beginning of the summer, and suffered through the heat until we found your product through an on-line search. With your guidance, we purchased the full-arm model and as you can see from the photo, it worked perfectly. Our daughter was able to swim and shower during the rest of the summer without difficulty. It's a great product!

  I don't even know how to begin to sing the praises of Dry Pro! My 4 year old son body-slammed my 3 year old son (Tony) and broke his arm... requiring surgery. I was heartbroken that my Tony was not going to be able to get in the pool, play in the sprinkler, play with squirt guns or even "play water" in the sink for at least 5 weeks (until the end of summer). As the thermometer rose, I realized that I had to find a way for Tony to cool off. I purchased the psuedo-garbage bag products from a medical supply store, which were complete junk. I even tried to rig my own cover with kitchen gloves, saran wrap, medical tape, duct tape, etc. which worked better than the psuedo-garbage bag and worked for the sprinkler, but took more than half and hour to put on and even longer to get off. Then I decided to try the internet for a waterproof cast cover, and I stumbled onto Dry Corp's website. As soon as I saw the Dry Pro photos, I knew it would work. I called medical supply stores all over the city, but could not locate the product, so I ordered online and rushed the shipment. Within 10 minutes of the FedEx truck leaving, we were in the pool. I can't say I wasn't nervous, but Tony told me that the "cast cover" was dry on the inside.... and he was right. It was BONE DRY (pardon the pun). I was so excited. I took my Dry Pro package to the medical supply store where I bought the psuedo-garbage bag product and told them that I paid the same price for this amazing product of unequal quality. I suggested that they order Dry Pro in bulk. I've also stopped every person that I've seen with an arm or leg cast and told them about Dry Pro.

Thank you for inventing such a wonderful product. Thank you for saving our summer. And, most of all, thank you for bringing a smile back to Tony's face.

   Dry Pro saved our vacation.! Our doctors had no advise or information so I went online and found this. I am a huge advocate for you now and have told so many people!

What a great product!
