When managing lymphedema with compression bandaging and therapy, it may be necessary to address cases of excess swelling or fibrosis, (which is a hardened area under the skin), with extra compression that is targeted to a specific body area or contour.

Swell spots and pads have been developed to address this need and may be used in combination with short stretch compression bandages during CDT (complete decongestive therapy) as part of a multi-layer compression bandage, or afterwards during on-going lymphedema management. The swell spot or pad may be tucked into a compression garment or compression wrap and positioned where extra pressure is needed.

Swell spots and pads are available in many shapes, sizes and designs to match the contours of the body area that requires extra compression. Whichever type of swell spot or pad is used, the goal is to create localized, targeted pressure that can break up the areas of concentrated and stagnant protein-heavy lymph fluid, in order to help create a softer skin area.

Our large selection of swell spots and pads includes:

  • round swell pads for lymphedema
  • oval swell pads for lymphedema
  • half-circle swell pads for lymphedema
