If you are unfortunate enough to have broken the arm you use most, then you will soon discover that simple tasks like shaving, applying makeup or doing your hair suddenly become near impossible. You have probably already considered making changes to your wardrobe that involve fewer buttons, zips and other fastenings, but have you thought about maintaining your manicure or plucking your eyebrows? We thought not.
The Tissue Viability Society is an independent charity committed to supporting those working in wound care.

If you or someone you love are going through treatment for cancer, we understand it’s a difficult time. That’s why we designed our elbow LimbO, which allows anyone with a PICC line or midline in place to bathe as normal. We know this is a small thing compared to everything that will be going on, what with hospital appointments, nurse visits and so on, but for some people, a nice bath may just help. It might allow for 30 minutes of relaxation and being able to lie beneath the warm bubbles might provide an escape… even if it’s just for a moment.
It broken; your arm that is. So they wrapped it up, thwacked a cast on and said ‘see you in 6 to 8 weeks’. You leave the hospital feeling a little sorry for yourself but by the time you get home you are starting to feel more positive. It won’t be that bad… it will get you out of being designated driver for a while and thanks to LimbO, at least showering won’t be a problem. But just in case you were wondering, there are some things that aren’t so easy when you are sporting a cast… 1: Get yourself dressed.
