Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?

"I loved the mesh window, which makes it easy to see my PICC site and ensure it was doing well. I also love that the band kept everything nice and covered (which helped to prevent snags and also made me feel more normal in public). I also love that it was machine washable."

Product Questions

Product Questions

Why should I buy PICC Line covers?

If you’re having ongoing IV treatment as part of your cancer therapy, some people find PICC line covers useful for protecting the area.  Our PICC Line Kit combines a stretchy covering to protect the area day-to-day, alongside a waterproof covering that can be worn in the bath or shower.

A PICC line can serve as a constant reminder of illness… Many people find that covering the area with a sleeve helps to hide the line from onlookers and makes them feel more secure day-to-day.  The need to protect the area when showering or taking a bath can also be a hassle.  Wearing a secure waterproof covering means you can fully relax and enjoy shower time without concerns of getting the area wet.

Is it hygienic to wear PICC line covers for shower use?

Yes.  The LimbO Waterproof PICC Line Cover helps to keep bacteria away from the vein when showering or having a bath.  The LimbO is made from two layers of PVC with a nylon mesh which means it’s completely watertight and extremely durable, so you can rest in confidence that the area is fully protected.

Can I swim whilst wearing the LimbO?

It’s generally recommended that swimming or vigorous physical activity is avoided whilst wearing the LimbO.  The LimbO is designed as a PICC line cover for showering or baths rather than strenuous water sports. 

Please make sure you always seek the advice of a medical professional before undertaking any new physical activity.

How do I wash the Care + Wear PICC line cover?

The Care + Wear PICC line cover can be machine washed in cold water up to 100 times.  If using a tumble dryer always make sure it’s on a low setting.  Alternatively, you can air dry the sleeve flat.

 

Can I reuse the LimbO?

Yes, the LimbO is designed to be worn daily.  Simply hang it up to dry after bathing or showering, and wash with warm soapy water when needed.

Do I need help when putting on PICC line covers?

Both Care + Wear and LimbO covers are easy to use and can be put on independently without the help of another person.  You can find demonstrations on how to fit the covers on their websites.
