Decades of research have found that certain wavelengths of light within the red and infrared bands can be beneficial to living tissue.
Light therapy uses red and infrared light.
The light triggers the release of nitric oxide from blood vessels and red blood cells.
Nitric oxide causes local vasodilation that lasts several hours after the therapy session has ended.
Vasodilation significantly improves blood flow.
Improving blood flow promotes positive change in patients, lessens pain and helps nerves to begin to carry sensations again.
Light Therapy works!
Healthlight patients have finally found relief.
There are two main factors to maximize the benefits of light therapy:
There are two main factors to maximize the benefits of light therapy: the wavelength and dosage of light energy. Most devices deliver red light between 630-700nm. Sometimes, near infrared light is included typically between 800-900nm. HealthLight provides both types of light because the combination of different wavelengths positively impacts the depth of penetration.
The bulk of clinical literature suggests that light in the mid-600nm range to high-800nm range is most effective. That is because these wavelengths have the greatest effect on the cellular respiration process.
The amount of energy delivered during the treatment is measured in joules. There needs to be sufficient energy transmitted from the red and infrared LEDs during treatment to achieve an adequate dosage. The amount of joules delivered from our pads achieves this goal.
HealthLight devices bring relief of muscle, joint aches, and stiffness.
