HOLLISTER, CA (January 2012) – Wearing a hand brace or splint doesn't mean you have to be a fashion victim anymore.  Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendon pain, repetitive motion syndrome or any number of wrist and hand conditions typically requires wearing a black hand or wrist brace.  Black may be the color of choice for formal affairs, but wearing it every day to support a wrist injury or hand ailment gets old fast – especially if it catches on clothes.  Coming to the rescue, CastCoverZ! the world leader in cast covers, introduces Handz!, fun fashion hand splint or brace cover choices for covering hand and wrist braces and wounds or scars.  Handz! are also functional by eliminating the snagging of clothes, the scratching of desks or tables, and for keeping a brace or bandage clean while making dressing over Velcro® splints easier.

"There are dozens of hand and wrist injuries, surgeries and conditions, beyond fractures, that require an orthopedic splint or brace," said Annette d. Giacomazzi, Founder and Owner of CastCoverZ!™.  Giacomazzi continued, "Dealing with the pain of an injury or condition is very challenging. Adding insult to injury are the other unintended consequences of the brace getting dirty, snagging clothing, and scratching furniture.  Even the simple act of getting dressed while wearing a brace can be frustrating.  Wearing Handz! fashion hand brace covers will prevent those irritating side effects from happening and will make your injury easier to bear."  Handz! provide a protective and fashionable cover for most orthopedic braces, bandages, splints and even scarred skin.

Karen Keller of Bismarck, North Dakota, relayed her story, "My mother had a muscle removed from her wrist to augment her tongue due to tumor removal.  Handz! covered my mom's scar area and made her feel less self-conscious.  Personally, I think she liked the bling!" Giacomazzi added with a smile, "Karen's mom, Rose, who is 80, ordered two crystal studded black velvet Handz!'s; Cosmos and Starry Night.  Studies have shown that when you feel better, you heal better.  It's a challenge to make orthopedic devices and covers attractive and functional.  But we're up to it."

Dr. Scott Hoffinger, Orthopedic Surgeon, who has a continuing role on the TLC reality TV show, Little People, Big World shared, "CastCoverZ! Handz! are colorful products that also serve a great functional purpose.  A patient can finally replace pulling down sleeves to hide casts, splints, braces and/or bandages and have a lot of fun, too.  Why be limited to just one?"

CastCoverZ! provides an array of fun and functional products that comfort orthopedic patients. Their flagship product is a stretchy and washable fabric sleeve in a range of designs that easily slips over casts and braces of multiple shapes and sizes.   Necessity is the mother of invention; created originally to comfort the 10 year old daughter of the founder, who has broken 8 bones, CastCoverZ! is now international, carrying 10 product lines and distributing 4 additional lines.
