Red and Near-Infrared Products

Facebook Twitter

Things to consider if deciding on a purchase:
* Red, Near Infrared (NIR), or a combination?
* Wavelength(s) measured in nanometers (nm)--some have been tested for specific conditions. NIR is usually used for deeper penetration. Red is often used for skin treatment.

But some research shows that the effects are systemic, so it may not matter as much.
* EMF radiation levels--these need to be tested and low
* flicker of the light source--may or may not be that important. LEDs have an indiscernible flicker and incandescent do not
* power intensity at the distance you use it because dosage is important
* cost--some of these units are expensive.

A Skeptical Look at Low Level Laser Therapy. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) refers to the use of a red-beam or near-infrared laser with a wave-length between 600 and 1000 nanometers and power from 5 to 500 milliwatts.

A Skeptical Look at Low Level Laser Therapy

Depending on wavelength, tissues absorb energy to produce heat. LLLT lasers transfer small or very small amounts of energy into the skin. In contrast, lasers used in ablative surgery typically use 300 watts and burn the tissues they encounter. FTC settles false advertising suit against low-level light therapy marketer with $22 million judgment. The Willow Curve The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the marketers of Willow Curve, a low-level light therapy device, have agreed to a Stipulated Order for Permanent Injunction and Monetary Judgment forbidding false claims that the device treats chronic, severe pain and associated inflammation.

The Order also imposes a $22 million judgment, suspended pending the payment of $200,000 each by individual defendants Ronald Shapiro, MD (a kidney specialist) and David Sutton, co-owners of the defendant companies marketing the device, based on their ability to pay. The Order resolves a six-count Complaint filed by the FTC against the defendants for violation of federal laws against deceptive advertising. The FTC, which had been investigating the defendants since 2017, apparently agreed with SBM’s own Dr.

Harriet Hall, who wrote about the Willow Curve in 2015: Willow Curve makes a lot of claims, but there is no credible evidence to back them up. You heard it here first, folks.

Red and Near-Infrared Light Buyer’s Guide. Part II – LEDs.

This is a brief guide to buying red and near-infrared LEDs with potentially beneficial biological effects. The 20th Century saw much exploration of the biological effects of light, from the sunlight solaria of Europe to experiments with incandescent bulbs many effects were repeatedly demonstrated. In the 1960’s Endre Mester performed experiments with rodents using a red ruby Laser, his intention was to explore the effects of focused heat from the new device , however the modified Laser device was of much lower power than had been intended for the experiments.

Mester observed firstly that the rodents in the experiments with the low powered Laser had greatly increased hair growth in the areas treated by the device. This was the beginning of a very large field of research into the specific effects of red and near-infrared light on biological systems. Red Light Therapy for Your Entire Body.
