Q.  What is a Cast Scratcher?

A. Originally developed at the request of a orthopedics doctor, the cast scratcher was designed to allow people with casts on to get down under and relieve the itch.   Save lots of pencils and wooden spoons!

Cast Scratcher

Cast scratcher construction is similar to that of the back scratchers. They are, however, 30% narrower, have a thinner handle and the majority of the scratcher edge is removed to allow easy access into tight areas.

Our telescopic back scratchers can also do a good job as a cast scratcher.

Q.  Is it "Back Scratcher" or "Backscratcher"?

A. Hmmmmmmm.  Good question.  We try to use "Back Scratcher" because a) it seems like it should be consistent with "Cast Scratcher" which definitely seems to be two words and b) our official Scrabble® dictionary did not allow "Backscratcher" as a valid word.  And who are we to argue with Merriam-Webster??  Two other more obscure names are "scratch-back" and "magonote", the later being used primarily in Japan.
