Step 1: Measuring Limb Circumference
Arm: Measure the circumference of the arm roughly 2 inches above (proximal to) the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the elbow, measure mid upper arm (around the bicep).
Leg: Measure the circumference of the leg just above the cast or bandage. If the end of the cast is very close to the knee, measure mid thigh.
Please note: Do not measure around the cast but around the bare arm or leg as shown in Figure 1.
Step 2: Measure Length
Arm: Measure from the tip of the middle finger to where the circumference was measured in step 1.
Leg: Measure from the back of the heel to where the circumference was measured. For younger children the full arm and full leg Xerosox® offer the best fit; measure from the mid bicep or mid thigh. Don't worry if the Xerosox® is longer than it needs to be. Move the extra length to the middle of the limb, the excess material will shrink in on itself when the vacuum is created.
Using the size charts select the Xerosox® size that is right for you or your patient. The circumference is more important than the length because it is critical for a good seal.
*Note the half arms and half legs are not normally used for children. Pediatric patients almost always use full arm or leg Xerosox®.
