SEAL SIZES (OPENING)

  • Measure your limb circumference around the fleshy part in centimetres, bear in mind anything over 27 cm we recommend need a 40! (30 is very small)

For example:  You have measured your forearm to cover your fingers and hand and it measures 30 centimetres, choose a short arm, medium aperture 40 – Code:  SA/M/40

You have measured your leg for a long leg to reach to your thigh, the circumference is 70 cm, order a long leg 90 = LL/L/90 which covers 70 to 90 cm circumference.

HOW SHOULD IT LOOK ON MY LIMB?

  • A 1 cm seal will form approximately 4 cm above your dressing
  • Release the air via the seal so the cover clings to your limb like a second skin
  • Please do not alter the seal
