Swell Spots began as mini-solutions to the big challenge of lymphedema. News spread, and hand therapists and other professionals now use them to meet a wide range of rehabilitation needs, such as problematic areas of swelling, tissue fibrosis, and contouring over and around boney prominences. Wherever there is a pocket of swelling there are Swell Spots to fit the job.

The Curved Swell Spot is primarily used for hard-to-accommodate areas, like the ankle and patella. Therapist feedback indicates that this little pad is also very effective when used under bandages around the elbow, for inferior breast scarring, and to direct lymph flow around scars in any area of the body. This Swell Spot has also been used behind the ear and around the eye.
