Frequently Asked Questions
The LimbO has a soft, stretchy Neoprene seal which has been carefully designed to make it as easy as possible to insert the affected limb. You will receive instructions with your LimbO order and you can view our easy guide on how to use your LimbO here.
General medical advice is that swimming or similar vigorous water activities (e.g. water slides) should be avoided during the healing process and it might be a good idea to consult a medical practitioner if you have any doubts or questions regarding this.
However, you can use your LimbO for gentle submersion in a swimming pool, i.e. paddling or ‘splashing around’, given that you follow these safety guidelines:
- Activities such as wading/paddling should only be done within one’s depth
- Children must be supervised at all times
- Never enter a pool unaccompanied
- Never use the LimbO as a flotation device
- Do not attempt to use the LimbO in recreational activities
The LimbO can also be used in hydrotherapy as part of a medically-approved treatment. It can also be used in a hot tub, but for no longer than 10 minutes at a time as the heat will cause a faster build-up of condensation inside the LimbO.
Full leg casts can be heavy and severely restrict movement, therefore for safety reasons it is recommended not to go in a pool or the sea.
The LimbO should not be worn for longer than 25 minutes at a time because condensation can begin to build up inside the LimbO as it is completely sealed.
