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.

Melissa Dettmer, MPT, CLT-LANA originally designed this Swell Spot to address residual and transient pelvic floor swelling in her pregnant/postpartum patient population. The Sweet Spot relieves discomfort, pain, and pressure from perineum swelling, labia swelling, and/or vulvar varicosities. The Sweet Spot is the size and shape of a panty liner for maximum comfort and can be worn inside, over, or between two pair of underwear. It features a one-sided non-skid surface to prevent repositioning with normal movement and is machine washable.
