How The Dry Pro Prosthetic Protector Works
Step 1: Trim for your perfect fit
Stretch on the Dry Pro over the leg to see how it fits. If the Dry Pro is too tight, you can trim 1/4 in ch along the lines towards the top of the opening and try it on again. Be sure not to trim too much, as a tight seal is needed for the vacuum to work. Stretch the Dry Pro over the prosthetic so the top fits smooth against the skin. Allow some slack as the vacuum will remove the excess material.
Step 2: Slide on
Slide the protector over the prosthetic limb so that it is completely covered. The Dry Pro should fit snug and comfortable on the upper leg. The opening should be flush along the skin. Make sure to pull the boot flat against the sole so the bottom of the protector with the Non-Skid Grid lies flat against the ground.
Step 3: Pump out all the air
Continuously 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 Dry Pro for about 5 minutes before going into the water. In order to remove the Dry Pro 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. Dry Pro recommends removing it after every 45 minutes of use. Do not use in vascular compromised patients. Steady yourself in wet slippery areas. Always follow your doctor's advice.

Product QuestionsI am interested in this product for a friend of mine who recently had a below the knee amputation and has recently been fitted with a prosthetic leg. He is mostly interested in using it to shower. The measurements offered; however, do not seem to fit what he needs. The circumference of his thigh above the prosthetic is 20" around, which would be a Large. The length from heel to top of prosthetic is 25 1/2", which would be smaller than extra small. Can you guide me on this?Question by: Judy Dunn on Mar 22, 2015 2:49:00 PMHello Mrs. Dunn: According to the page description and some of the directions offered by the manufacturer, these protective covers can be trimmed to fit the size you're looking for. If you need specific lengths, we may be able to contact the manufacturer and place a special order for your protector.Answer by: Shain Gillet (Admin) on Jun 28, 2016 3:19:00 PMHow i take off after I usedQuestion by: Liliana Crutchley on Jun 5, 2017 10:05:00 AMThe manufacturer states you can place an object (wooden dowel, other material) between the skin and the cover, then pull away from your skin until it's loose enough to pull off the rest of the way.Answer by: Shain Gillet (Admin) on Jun 6, 2017 9:28:00 AM
