Kimberly Brungardt, OTR, CLT-LANA, developed the Kimbe Swell Spot to reduce the swelling over the scapula area. She tucks the pad into the shoulder and chest straps of her patients' bras. The kidney-shaped design can be rotated around the shoulder area to address swelling, scarring, and fibrosis in this hard to wrap area. Therapists report that the Kimbe also works great for the inside area of the groin and around the neck. Latex free. Made in USA.
Measures approx 25cm x 15cm
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).
