Primarily designed for use on the dorsum of the hand or foot, this shell-shaped spot works well to address this stubborn area of swelling when used under low stretch bandages. Patients also find it easy to use, placing it under their edema glove or compression garment.
Swell spots are made with a breathable fabric that is comfortable wear all day. Grey microfiber fabric grips skin and encourages gentle tissue stretch to help open the initial lymphatic and encourage re absorption.
If you suffer from fibrotic tissue, these swell spots will also work to break it up while protecting delicate skin.
How do Swell Spots work? Swell Spots' are made with unique foam particles that nestle into tissue to create localized tissue stretch. This tissue stretch opens initial lymphatic gaps to encourage re-absorption of fluids and particles. Basically, this means Swell Spots help break up fibrosis and move fluid where it needs to go!
Two different fabrics. Most of Swell Spots use both a grey and black colored fabric, each with its own unique purpose. The grey fabric is specifically designed to be used against your skin in order to provide a gentle grip, keeping your Swell Spot in place and helping to create the localized tissue stretch necessary to move fluid and break up fibrosis.
To wash your Swell Spots, just toss them in your washing machine with a normal load of laundry and machine dry (remember, do not use bleach or fabric softeners in the washing and drying process).
