“I was privileged to have received an advance copy.  I took one weekend and diligently applied it to my current business, CastCoverz!  What a humbling experience.  I am doing some things right.  But, had I gleaned the information I learned from this book BEFORE I started my business, I would have spent less on initial investment money, slashed my learning curve in half and saved myself a tremendous amount of time.” ~Annette Giacomazzi

Tell us in 50 words or less why YOU deserve to win the “How Hot is Your Product?” book and workbook, by Tamara Monosoff!  You can comment with your answer below our Facebook contest post or email us at cs@castcoverz.com through Sunday, June 23, 2013.  Thankz for participating, we look forward to announcing our winner next week!

Cast Covers Team Attends AAOS Conference in Chicago


CastCoverz! just returned from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Conference held in Chicago, Illinois, at the world famous McCormick Place Event Center.  The AAOS show is the largest orthopedic trade-show in the world, with over 13,000 attendees from every continent on the planet!  Owner, Annette d. Giacomazzi, and Community Champion, Kristine Champion, had a fantastic week talking to doctors, nurses, and ortho techs about their 18-branded product line, providing functional and fashionable products that bring relief and comfort to orthopedic patients.

CastCooler, MediShield, and CastCoverz! Team

CastCoverz! represented the orthopedic soft-goods industry well, with a spacious booth shared with industry leaders, MediShield and CastCooler. MediShield fills an enormous demand for waterproof protection of casts, bandages, and prosthetics. Doctors, nurses, and especially ortho techs stated they were “unaware of any truly effective means of protecting casts, prosthetics, or bandaging against water.” “We are proud to distribute a product that works well for showering and bathing,” says CastCoverz! owner and founder, Annette d. Giacomazzi.  “But, I am very excited about their product upgrades, including a stronger, latex-free material.” 

CastCooler is a breakthrough in cast care, designed to concentrate cooling and drying effectiveness on moist areas under your cast. CastCooler will cool your cast, reduce odor and itch, freshen your cast, and speed dry your cast, should moisture get in.  When exhibit attendees tried out the sample CastCooler on display, they were AMAZED at how this product really works!  Also joining them in the booth was Tom Schwab, Founder and Owner of Goodbye Crutches, and his very popular knee scooter!

All in all, the AAOS Exhibit was quite a success! CastCoverz! looks forward to expanding upon their product line and remaining the leading global manufacturer, e-tailer, and innovator of essential orthopedic soft goods.  OH…and they announced their new toll-free number, 1(800) CASTCOVER (1-800-227-8268) and an adorable new pediatric line of arm cast covers, too.  BIG things happening at CastCoverz!
