TCS Compressions Socks make their Minnesota debut at the Mayo Clinic Delivery Science Summit
Medical professionals have one painful thing in common at the end of a long day: tired, achy, swollen legs. This was the realization that led former nurse Dianne Dickson to form Australia-based Total Compression Solutions (TCS), a leading manufacturer of medical grade compression hosiery not just for patients, but for the medical personnel who care for them.
“Even when you love what you do, being on your feet for hours at a time can make the day seem to last forever,” Dianne said. “It’s a circulatory issue. When fluid pools in your lower limbs, edema increases. I knew compression hosiery could take care of that.” “The only problem was,” she continued, “Most compression hosiery was rather unattractive.”
Dianne responded by creating TCS Ellipsis Pro™, medical grade compression socks in an ever-changing array of fashion-forward colors and patterns. Fun prints in names like Crazy Delights, Cheetah Pink, Groovy Green, Mellow Yellow, Disco Nights are just a few of the uplifting patterns that are clinically effective and make a significant difference in your day.
Today, just two years later, TCS is the number one choice of nurses in Australia and has expanded to the U.S., offering one of very few FDA-approved compression socks.
“The degree of compression is important,” Dianne said. “There are lots of easy-to-find products out there that call themselves ‘compression socks,’ but they don’t do much for your legs other than look good. You need the right fit, and the right degree of graduated pressure for real, clinically-effective benefits.”
TCS offers several kinds of compression stockings aimed at patients, travelers, pregnant women, and anyone works on their feet. In addition to Ellipsis Pro knee highs, pantyhose and thigh highs, products include SportsEdge™ socks and calf sleeves, as well as solutions for therapy, safety, and pregnancy.
“I come from a long line of nurses, and what they do counts,” Dianne said. “All of our products are designed by nurses for nurses, because we care.”
Last month, while at the Delivery Science Summit, TCS received rave reviews from local & international physicians and medical personnel, as well as event staff.
“They make my feet happy. I wish I had these twenty years ago!” said one Patient Care Professional from Mayo Clinic. Another professed, “TCS socks are like a hug for my legs and I’ll never work another shift without them.”
