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 new covers. The amount of shot weight can be varied for the patient’s individual needs by opening the Hook & Loop tab.
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.
