Salt Lake City, Utah -- WaterGuard llc has introduced a new polyurethane self-sealing, watertight bathing sleeve for cast and wound protection, a 25 Feb company statement said.
Constructed using tear-resistant, flexible ultra-thin PU film, the WaterGuard sleeve is latex-free, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic and endorsed by Olympic gold medalist and orthopaedic surgeon Eric Heiden, the company said.
"By creating a product that achieves a watertight seal without restricting blood flow, we believe WaterGuard is a major advancement in wound and cast protection," said Dr Matthew Jimenez, founding partner of WaterGuard and orthopaedic surgeon.
The WaterGuard sleeve, the statement said, provides easy slip-on self-healing protection that fits snug enough to keep water out, while remaining comfortable for the user. Available in sizes for children and adults, the sleeve is suitable for arm, leg and knee injuries, as well as for protecting casts, splints, cuts, stitches, rashes, burns, lines catheters and ports.
