About

Therapist Support Laboratory (TSL) was established in 1998 as a specialist manufacturer of Custom Made compression garments, Ready to Fit compression garments and various Hand Therapy garments.

 

All our garments are manufactured on site at our premises in Melbourne. Orders can be received via email, fax or telephone and are usually made and despatched within 1 to 3 days.

 

In 2011 TSL became the Australian & New Zealand authorised distributor of Bio Med Sciences Silicon products for wound and scar management.

 

Within Australia our products are widely used in Burns Units, Lymphoedema Clinic’s, Hand Therapy Department’s and Wound Care Clinic’s.

 

Our TSL trained Clinical Advisors are on hand to assist with all your queries, regarding design options, fabric choices, measuring, fitting and care instructions for garments.

 

For local health practitioners we also have available a measuring and fitting service. This involves your patient attending our facility with an appointment and a written referral. Our Clinical Advisors will measure and fit the garment within a few hours if required. Having our manufacturing on site means we can consult with our design team and make alterations on the spot. Our experienced staff will ensure that your patient’s receive personalised care and service.

 

We use the most up to date fabric, textile technology and purpose built machinery to produce garments with flat seams that combine comfort, accuracy and longevity. Our emphasis is on intelligent textiles, so that our fabrics and materials perform multi functions, such as our Hydro Lining which as well as providing reinforcement and protection also quickly draws moisture away from the body reducing conditions which lead to bacteria and discomfort and also regulates body temperature. Silver technology is another example with its anti microbial properties enhancing comfort for the garment wearer.

 

Choose from a variety of fabric colours and motifs for our Custom Made Paediatric Range at no extra cost. We also have a Lymphactiv Range in a variety of styles and colours. If required our Ready to Fit Range of products can be further personalised with Combination Sizes. This extensive range was developed in 2000 and is the original ready to fit range introduced to hospitals in Australia and New Zealand.

 

Referral forms with your contact details are available from our office including our location map, public transport directions and parking instructions. These forms can be sent to you in PDF format or as hard printed copies.

 

Our purpose built premises have been designed to create an environment where patient’s feel welcomed and comfortable by providing wheelchair access and disabled toilets. Our waiting area facilities include TV, tea, coffee & water, an extensive range of reading materials and children’s toys. A disabled parking bay is available in front of our premises.
