Cast Care BookEvanston, IL…DM Systems, manufacturer of orthopedic, wound care and rehab products, announces a continuation of its affiliation with Mediscript Communications, Inc., publisher of the 2007 Cast Care Book.

The information in the Cast Care Book, primarily targeting patients who have recently been placed in a cast, appears in a format that is easy to scan so that information can be found as needed. Included in the book is information on how bones heal, how to support oneself properly on crutches, and why a medical practitioner should be involved in cast fitting. The information parallels the DM Systems philosophy on cast care inherent in their casting line of products. Data available in the Cast Care Book comes from several consulting organizations including NAOT (National Association of Orthopedic Technologists), the CSOT (Canadian Society of Orthopedic Technologists), and NAON (National Association of Orthopedic Nurses).

More than an informative guide, the Mediscript Cast Care Book includes reproducible documents that can be used as hand-outs. These documents include a cast care checklist and a "progress diary" sheet. DM Systems advocates these kinds of care guidelines, together with the use of DM Systems products like the GaitKeeper® Cast Shoe, the CastWalker® Cast Sole, and the CastWedge™ Cast Adjuster. Dependable information and dependable casting products provide the most effective treatment regimens for those suffering with broken bones.

DM Systems sponsors the Mediscript Cast Care book to support the highest quality of treatment and care for patients required to wear casts.

Mediscript, with offices in California, Canada, and the UK, publishes self-help guides covering over 40 health conditions, including Cast Care, Pressure Ulcers, Diabetes, and Alzheimers.
