HOLLISTER, CA (March 2012) – CastCoverZ!, the world's largest online retailer of products for the orthopedic patient, including cast covers and waterproof cast products, announces the acquisition of LemonAid™ Crutches and CrutchWear® crutch accessories. Annette d. Giacomazzi, Founder and Owner of CastCoverz!, said, "LemonAid was the pioneer in adding fashion and design to crutches and crutch accessories, including crutch covers. Our customers will love this addition to our line-up of fun and functional products." Laurie Johnson Jackson, Founder of LemonAid, said, "I'm thrilled that Annette will be continuing LemonAid's legacy of providing designer colored crutches and crutch pad covers." Laurie continued, "CastCoverZ! was my only distributor and I know her work ethic and her high-level of customer care. In addition, Annette and I share the same vision that being injured doesn't have to be boring."

LemonAid Crutches™ are made of high-tech, lightweight aluminum construction and are powder-coated for ultimate durability and brilliant color. The crutches are available in three sizes (small, medium and tall) and available in ten luscious colors. CrutchWear, fashionable crutch covers and crutch bags, allows you to fully personalize your crutches with design, superior comfort and function. 

"When Laurie announced she was closing her business, I looked around for a substitute but found no comparable products," said Giacomazzi. "LemonAid crutches and crutch covers offer the perfect complement to the CastCoverZ! concept; fun and functional products that comfort orthopedic patients. When Laurie offered me the chance to purchase her existing inventory, I jumped at the opportunity!" Giacomazzi added, "We're able to offer the products at a really great price, too, because they ship directly from CastCoverZ! headquarters."

The LemonAid Crutches retail for an all-inclusive price (standard shipping is included) at $75.00, and CrutchWear crutch accessories start at $25.00. CastCoverZ! customers can go to one place online to get all their orthopedic necessities and accessories, from cast covers, to waterproof cast covers, to designer crutches and crutch covers.

CastCoverZ! products are available on the web at, as well as at select medical clinics and pharmacies.
