 Every patient should have access to one if not able to get an area wet

Wonderful aid to feeling normal after a melanoma removed with a skin graft so I couldn’t get 2 wounds on my right leg wet. Made me feel like a new woman the first time I showered and washed my hair after 14 days without. Wish I had known about these from the start! I am going to tell the District Nurses about these as every patient should have access to one if not able to get an area wet.
Wonderful.

 Worked brilliantly, didn’t leak at all

“Worked brilliantly – visited Center Parcs with our 10 year old, and didn’t leak at all despite several hours of daily swimming, including diving down to the bottom. Make sure you follow the instructions”.

I have been 100% satisfied with this product and I have recommended it on a number of occasions

“I am an active 50yr old competing in a number of cycling sportives throughout the years, as well as swimming, running and walking, and have developed interest in triathlon. You can imagine the psychological frustration following snapping my Achilles tendon while running in my last triathlon, as this resulted in an operation and being in a cast for over 8 weeks. I went from being active on a daily basis to zero exercise, being dependant on crutches I became totally disempowered! Following contacting BLOCCS I was able to return to swimming, it was a sanity saver, once I arranged transport. I used the product 3-4 times a week for a mile swim, plus a few sets, at a time with the use of a pull buoy to aid hip/leg buoyancy. DURATION-45mins -60 mins session-Swimming crawl. FREQUENCY-3-4 times a wk. Slight dampness to top and btm (toes) cast dressing, not the actual cast but the dressing occurred, but I’m convinced this was mostly due to sweat not leakage. I solved this by a little talcum powder to my toes and at the top of cast prior to wearing the cast protector. Sitting on the edge of the pool and squeezing the air out of the protector allows it to fit reasonably tight to the cast, minimising the balloon effect. My pool sessions were only up to an hour at a time but I wouldn’t hesitate using it for longer sessions. I also used it when camping at a very muddy festival, marshalling at a tri event in torrential rain, a boat trip in the rain and of course showering and bathing. I have been 100% satisfied with this product and have posted details on three Facebook/forums I belong to and have been an advocate of your product, I have been approached on a number of occasions and have recommended your product.”

 The Bloccs protector was fantastic and made my daughter’s holiday so enjoyable

“I just wanted to send a quick mail to let you know that the Bloccs protector that we ordered recently was fantastic and made my daughter’s holiday so enjoyable, without it there would have been no swimming having broken her arm a week before our holiday. Thanks very much, I will recommend to anyone in a similar situation!”

 My son fell in the lake, his cast is still lovely and dry!

“Just wanted to thank u for your wonderful product. My son went on a school trip today and fell in the lake! His cast is still lovely and dry! He wouldn’t have had half as much fun without it.

 My son spent most of his holiday in and out of the water, it didn’t leak

“We bought 2 short leg protectors last month as we were going on holiday, we bought 2 in case 1 of them ripped. It didn’t, it was totally brilliant, it made my son of 7 have a totally fabulous holiday so thank you for that. We were totally surprised how good it was, he spent most of the holiday in and out of the water, it didn’t leak, he was jumping in and even managing to swim!! Brilliant thanks again.”

Serena

  It was a delight knowing water wouldn’t seep through

“Fantastic. Having waited 3 weeks for a bath it was a delight knowing water wouldn’t seep through. I will certainly recommend when I go back to hospital to have my plaster removed. Thank you”

Ian

Was absolutely wonderful and really did save my son’s holiday 

‘The cover we ordered, which was delivered to our campsite, was absolutely wonderful and really did save my son’s holiday! A fantastic product and great customer service.’

Hannah 

Thanks to the Bloccs leg cover I was able to go swimming

“Thanks to the Bloccs leg cover I was able to go swimming. It was great to be able to keep fit and take the strain off of my other leg.”

Sarah 

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with this product 

“Hi had my full leg protector arrive today and have had my first shower since my tibia tubercele osteotomy operation on Friday (4 days ago) I can’t tell you how pleased I am with this product. I have to wear a locked brace for 6 weeks so can’t bend my knee once in it so I can stand with the protector and shower!! One point is that it is slippery so to overcome this I had a towel in the shower (not covering the plug hole!!) and this made me more confident. Thank you very much”

Janette 

It allows me to swim in our pool when I can’t have water on my leg

“I love your short leg protector! It allows me to swim in our pool when I can’t have water on my leg! Thank you! My only suggestion is it would be nice if you made one for your leg that had openings at both ends, so your foot could be outside of the cover. This would also take care of the slipping in the shower.”

We've helped hundreds of people find relief while they are recuperating and we're an ACC approved vendor. 
Meet a few of our customers and see how Cast Covers has impacted their recovery:

'"We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Rarotonga. Before we left our 8-year-old daughter fell off her scooter and broke both bones in her arm. This was a huge blow for us as our holiday was all booked and we were nearly packing to leave. I went online and google searched cast covers and thankfully you guys came up! I was absolutely blown away by how amazing this product was … no more plastic bags, yay !!! Our girl was able to enjoy the holiday just like the rest of us, even diving and jumping into the pool and snorkelling out in the lagoon for hours on end. We have just had her cast removed but will be holding onto this wee gem for the future, thanks so much!!!  I can’t stress enough how awesome your product is. Even after using it every day for 6 weeks in plaster it’s still in absolutely pristine condition." 

Jenna Sayer, Queenstown

" I would just like to congratulate you not only on the great service, but also the great product i.e. Waterproof Protector. My wife received hers yesterday, she has been suffering from an ulcer on the lower part of her leg which has required heavy bandaging twice a week for some time, and today had the first carefree shower that she has been able to have for many weeks. We will both be eternally grateful for this great product. Thank you so very much."

Neville & Dian Butler

"Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how I am going with my evenup. 

I have been using it every day since going from a cast into a moonboot and honestly do not know what I would do without it! Although I am still uneven due to my moonboot having a particularly large sole to it, the evenup at least reduces the strain on my other Achilles’ tendon and my hips and back. 

I have been interested to observe that few physiotherapists are even aware these are available and are very impressed with the concept on seeing mine."
