VACOcast Pro Achilles Boot - where to buy in Canada

Published by michel at 3:48 pm under Journal

UPDATE July 23, 2013: There is now a direct option to buy in Canada:
http://shop.vacocast.com or http://canada.vacocast.com
Thanks to Jeremy for providing the information.

Just a quick post for all my Canadian friends who are looking at getting a VACOcast Achilles boot for rehab.VACOcast Pro Achilles Boot

I contacted VACOcast in the US, and since they do not ship to Canada, they gave me the name of a local distributor in Canada:

Landmark Medical Systems Inc.
Phone: 1-800-563-2626
Phone: 905-881-2324
Fax: 905-881-2327

The prices are (as of today, February 15 2012):

  • VACOcast Pro Achilles boot: $299.
  • Weather guard: $5, although they told me it is not the same as the one on the VACOcast.com website
  • Additional liner: $60.

Hope that helps! Mine is on the way.

    Just a quick note about the “weather guard” they sent me: it’s similar to a shower cap, a bit stronger and black… nothing like what is shown on the US site, and not sure it’s worth the $5. There is no anti slip on the bottom, so it looks to be a bit useless, except maybe to put over the boot when going to bed, or to prevent sunburn while lying by the pool (which won’t be my case for months still here in QC).

    I phoned Landmark and they told me they don’t sell retail and my “bracing centre” would not order it for me as my OS “prescribed” the Aircast.

    I sent an email to http://www.well.ca and they got for me in a couple of days.

    Hi Dave,

    surprised they wouldn’t sell it to you - I had no problems getting mine last year. Glad you were able to get one from another source though.

    Good luck with your recovery!

    Hi all, VACOcast now has a web shop dedicated to Canadian customers. Visit http://shop.vacocast.com or http://canada.vacocast.com

    Either way, you will end up in the right place.

    Thank you Jeremy, that’s good news for us north of the border!

    Quick Update: In the US, medical devices are tax-free items. We have been working with the Canadian government to find a solution to offer VACOcast products to our Canadian customers without charging tax. At this time, we are simply going to pay the taxes for you. You will be able to enjoy the same prices as customers in the US.

    We will also be offering standard and expedited shipping methods. We are striving to keep shipping costs low, but we do fulfill from the US so that does make it a little more expensive.

    Thanks for your support and hope you all get better soon!
