WESTCOAST QUICKLITE COVERS
QuickLite™ Covers from Westcoast are durable, light-weight endoskeletal covers designed for use on preparatory and permanent prostheses. Made of polyethylene foam and pre-shaped to reduce fabrication time, the covers are easily removed for alignment adjustments and easily reapplied — in a fraction of the time it takes with more traditional options.
Weighing no more than 2 ounces with an average installation time of 30 minutes, the covers are an affordable, user-friendly option to help protect inner components, clothing and present a more realistic appearance for wearers. Split covers are available for use in cases requiring frequent removal and for active wearers who want the flexibility of being able to remove and reinstall the covers on their own.
• Made of lightweight, durable polyethylene foam
• Sandable and they weigh only 2 ounces
• B/K covers are available in 4 sizes, left or right
• A/K discontinuous covers are available in 2 sizes, left or right
• Split covers are available for more frequent or self-removal
• Easily removable for adjustments, easily reinstalled
• Shorter patient appointments
• Durable, light-weight, washable and user-friendly
• Protect inner components and clothing
• Can be worn “as is” or covered with cosmetic hose or protective skin
• Present a more realistic appearance
Once installed, the covers can be worn “as is”, covered with cosmetic hose or finished with off-the-shelf or custom skin.
Cosmetic stockings (much like in-store knee- or thigh-high hosiery) are worn pulled over the prosthetic foot and cover, often in layers of different shades that combine to approximate various skin tones.
Pre-fabricated skins are thin, rubber-like hose available in a variety of shades, also worn pulled over the prosthetic foot and cover. They provide the best moisture resistance, provide realism and are widely available.
Custom protective skins can be painted by hand onto the covers, providing an extremely realistic appearance that includes hair, tattoos and birthmarks as requested by the wearer.

WESTCOAST WPC COMPRESSOR
WCBL’s Pectus Carinatum Bracing Solution
Bracing may be an alternative to a surgical approach to treatment for Pectus Carinatum. The WPC Compressor, developed by Westcoast Brace & Limb, is a custom brace designed to gently apply pressure to the sternum, gradually correcting the structure of the chest wall.
We custom fabricate the brace based on a mold of the child’s chest. For best results, the brace should be worn 23 hours a day, 7 days a week. The child may remove the brace for bathing and/or swimming. The brace is typically utilized for one year.
Treatment for pectus deformities should begin when the child is at least beginning his or her pubertal growth spurt. At this time, when the chest wall is more fully developed, the risk of recurrence and complications is minimized.
