The Ankle/Wrist Weight Cover is used to hold or position limbs.
It is sold empty so that the lead shot from worn out covers can be put into a new cover. The amount of shot weight can be varied for the patient’s individual needs by opening the Hook & Loop Tape.
We suggest using a #4 or #5 gun shot lead filling. These covers are sometimes issued to patients to use at home to allow them to exercise between surgery visits.
The above guide is with approximately 75% of the cover filled with shot, to allow space for the shot to move when wrapping the weight around the ankle or wrist.
