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 Palmar Swell Spot is primarily for use on the volar (palm) surface of the hand. This Swell Spot works well under edema gloves and bandages, and is great for the concave shape of the palm. This spot can be used on the dorsum under compression gloves. It also addresses lumpectomy scarring by tucking into a bra over the scar.
