Foam applicationsplay a key role in complete decongestive therapy and are placed on top of the stockinette and under the bandages or compression garment. The goals of foam applications vary depending on the type of foam used. Soft, low density foam (foam rolls, sheets) serves to apply constant, gentle pressure to any pockets of obvious swelling and to distribute the pressure evenly on the tissues. This assists in restoring the limb or body part to its normal shape. In cases of hardened tissue areas (fibrosis), treatment may require the use of higher density, or specialty foam (foam pads, channeled foam, swell spots) to help break up the fibrotic tissue and return the skin to its normal softness. Foam pads come in many different shapes and sizes.
