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.

Versatile and easy to use, the simple, multi-purpose design allows therapists to position the spot 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.
