SAN JOSE, CA (July 2012) – With the peak of summer clearly in full swing, people who have to wear an arm or leg cast can still participate in most of the outdoor and water-based activities that the season has to offer. CastCoverZ!, a leading developer and retailer of fashionable and functional cast covers and patient requested orthopedic products, has all the gear necessary to keep sweaty casts dry and itch-free, and allows the injured to beat the heat and go for a swim, dive, surf, or water slide without drenching their casts.

"Our customers drive our business," said Annette d. Giacomazzi, CEO of CastCoverZ! "We are continually innovating to meet their wants and needs. CastCoverz! four branded lines and 16 products that cover casts, boots, splints, or braces are both functional as well as fashionable. But during the summer we rely on three of our companion products to comfort our customers, the DryPro®, the CastShield™, and the CastCooler®." The DryPro Waterproof Cast Protector allows you to get back in the water with a patented vacuum pump that creates a watertight seal to make swimming in the pool, beach, or water park worry-free. The CastShield™ easy-on, easy-off waterproof protection of casts, bandages, and prosthetics, restores your confidence to shower with dignity, again. It is perfect for a short dip in an inflatable pool or a run through the sprinklers, too. Last, but not least, is the CastCooler®, a revolutionary product that cools and dries damp areas underneath the cast to reduce overheating, minimize odor and itch associated with moisture, and keeps the cast fresh and dry.

"The injured deserve to have the same kind of summertime opportunities as everyone else," said Giacomazzi. "Our customers continually rave, 'You saved our summer!' That's what we're all about. Products that help our patients feel better, so they heal better."
