Versatile and easy to use, the Oval Swell Spot's simple, multi-purpose design allows therapists to position it in many areas such as the axilla, inside hand splints, along the ulnar aspect of the forearm, and for labia swelling. It is also suitable for any spot that just needs a little more pressure or has a problematic patch of fibrotic tissue. Therapists report that it reduces fibrotic tissue and helps to remodel scars. Latex free. Made in the USA.
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).
