My LimbO Story – Anna Forbes

March 23rd, 2020

Here at LimbO, our aim is to improve the quality of life of our customers, through the use of our innovative waterproof protectors. We believe in well-made, affordable products and helping individuals. So we are always so pleased to get great feedback from people that have benefitted from the use of a LimbO. We’ve begun a series of case studies with feedback from our customers and this month we’re hearing from 88-year-old Anna about her LimbO story.

If you’ve used a LimbO and want to tell us about your experience, just use the hashtag #MyLimbOStory on social media. We’d love to hear from you!


Name: Anna Forbes

Age: 88

Limbo requiring protection: Leg

Why did you need a LimbO? To protect a wound on my leg caused by an accident

How did you hear about LimbO? Via my daughter, a retired nurse

Where did you purchase your LimbO?  My daughter purchased the LimbO direct via the LimbO website (

If you were recommending a LimbO to someone, what would you say? It is an amazing product and so easy to use. I was amazed how easy it was for me to put on and take off. It gave me the confidence to shower without worrying about the dressing getting wet. It was an absolute god send.

How did the LimbO help you/make you feel? I am an active, independent 88-year-old lady. I suffered a nasty injury to my shin as a result of a slightly over-zealous shot on the croquet lawn!  I was sent home from hospital with a heavily bandaged leg and strict instructions not to get the dressing wet. The LimbO gave me the confidence to shower without worrying about the dressing getting wet. Despite the wonderful care I received, the healing process was a long slow process. It wasn’t the best way to spend 4 months, but I have to thank LimbO for allowing me to keep my independence when it came to showering.
