Can I swim whilst wearing the LimbO?

General medical advice is that swimming or similar vigorous water activities (e.g. water slides etc.) should be avoided during the healing process and if you are in any doubt you should consult a medical practitioner.

The product can be used for gentle submersion, e.g. in a bath or ‘splashing about’ in a pool provided the following safety procedures are followed:

Activities such as wading/paddling can be done – ALWAYS WITHIN ONE’S DEPTH.


NEVER enter a pool unsupervised.

Care must be taken not to tread on any sharp objects such as rocks or stones.

The LimbO can be used in hydrotherapy as part of your medically approved treatment.

Never use the LimbO as a floatation device.

Do not attempt to use the LimbO in recreational activities.


Special note: Full leg casts are heavy and severely restrict  movement, so for safety reasons you should not go in a pool or the sea.
