Foam & Padding

In the treatment of lymphedema, foam and foam padding is often applied over stockinette. Foams help evenly distribute the compression from the short-stretch bandages, the final layer in the wrapping process. Foam can also be built-up over bony protuberances and areas that required more drainage.

The same is true of padding. Pads are applied on top of problem areas, like fibrotic or hardened tissue, and secured with gauze. Pads gently stimulate the tissue, encouraging the release of interstitial fluids.
