MakING Life Better… the ING Source Way!
ING Source Inc. – USA
ING Source Inc. is the inventor of the FS6 Compression Foot Sleeve for relief of certain painful foot conditions like plantar fasciitis. With over 1,000,000 sold, the FS6 is the #1 sports brace product in the specialty running shop market in the United States!
Using the same patent pending Compression Zone Technology™, ING Source Inc. is now manufacturing the CS6 Compression Calf Sleeve for relief of pain related to Achilles tendinitis, venous insufficiency, soreness from exercise and leg pain. This product offers a light, comfortable alternative to hard to put on compression stockings. Use CS6 and keep your favorite socks on!
In addition, ING Source Inc. has recently released the KS6 Compression Knee Sleeve, the ES3 Compression Elbow Sleeve, and the PS3 Compression Patella Sleeve, all of which offer pain relief, improved circulation and medical grade orthopedic support in a light, comfortable sleeve you can wear any time, instead of those hot and heavy straps with Velcro.
ING Source began with its roots in consulting for product design, development and sourcing for consumer goods and medical devices in the health and wellness industry. President and CEO, Dave Higgins, relied on his decades of experience in the specialty footwear industry to provide profitable consulting solutions to clients worldwide.
Today, the company is a respected name in health products, manufacturing and marketing proprietary orthopedic and vascular supports. ING products are “makING life better” for health, wellness and fitness, as well as diabetic foot care.
ING Source holds several patents and is the creator of the innovative OrthoSleeve brand products: the FS6 Compression Foot Sleeve; CS6 Compression Calf Sleeve; KS6 Compression Knee Sleeve; PS3 Compression Patella Sleeve; and ES3 Compression Elbow Sleeve.
ING Source also offers specialized OEM manufacturing for compression wear and orthopedic support in sports rehabilitation to numerous premium global brands, like Feetures, Soxxy, Darco International, Dr. Comfort, SL3S and more.
ING Source Inc. is headquartered in Hickory, North Carolina, with offices in the UK and Taiwan. Our distributor partners continue to grow in numbers, now including sports and medical companies in the USA, the UK, Germany, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, Norway, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and Taiwan.

ING Source LTD – UK
Managing rapid growth is the kind of problem every business would like to face. In the case of ING Source, Inc., inventor of the OrthoSleeve family of products for orthopedic and vascular health, rapid growth has meant securing global manufacturing, packaging, shipping, and distribution for top-selling and award winning products that are less than two years old.
Originally, when the company’s flagship product – the FS6 Compression Foot Sleeve– was first introduced, manufacturing was handled exclusively in Taiwan, packaging was handled in the Hickory, NC facility, and distribution was covered by an ever-growing list of global distributors that obtained product from Hickory.
As sales of the FS6 passed the one million mark and additional products began being added to the OrthoSleeve family, however, this process started to feel cumbersome, slow, and inefficient.
“We needed to develop a way to satisfy the growing demand for OrthoSleeve products in many international markets, while keeping the cost at a level where pretty much anyone who wanted one could afford it,” says Dave Higgins, CEO of ING Source Inc. and inventor of the patent pending Compression Zone Technology that sets OrthoSleeve products apart from other products in the vascular support, compression, and sports health spaces.
Their two-phased solution went into effect earlier this year when Higgins partnered with business associates Barry Wright and Darren Alger, both foot care marketing experts in the UK, to form ING Source LTD, a separate entity that serves as exclusive licensee and distributor for all ING Source Inc. products in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
“By splitting the globe into two halves,” Higgins said, “we were able to more efficiently handle the supply and demand without unnecessary time and expense spent shipping product back and forth to the home office.”
Now, ING Source LTD handles shipping and packaging for all products produced in Taiwan that are to be distributed within their regions, and the Hickory, NC facility handles the same for all product distributed in North and South America.
“We’re really proud to say that phase two of this plan will bring all manufacturing of OrthoSleeve products for North and South America right back here to North Carolina within the next few months,” Higgins said, “and that should cement the plan, poising OrthoSleeve to handle even greater growth in the future.
