In the quest to find the most scientific and accurate way to deliver dose, we have covered a lot of important topics: Finding a reasonable intensity that isn’t too high. Calculating dose in J/cm^2 based on intensity and time. Proper measurements and how most companies are lying about intensity. Using the contact method to reduce reflection losses. What do real full-body dosage protocols actually look like. One thing we haven’t covered yet is how Total Joules comes into play. As we mentioned before, most studies use small lasers with a fairly small coverage area. How can we compare the energy...

How do you properly dose full-body light therapy? This is the first guide with evidence-based guidelines for appropriate intensity and dose for full body light therapy. Don't be lured in by companies claiming >100mW/cm^2, these are fallacies based on improper interpretation of the science and from inaccuracies in measurements.

With the launch of our fantastic targeted lights, the GembaRed Beam and GembaRed Goal, we wanted to take a look at how to optimize the usage of targeted red light therapy panels. The marketing campaigns for high-powered full body light therapy are strong! They would have you think that is the only way for photobiomodulation to have an effect. In our blog we often recall back to the roots of red light therapy. The majority of red light therapy clinical studies are done with lasers, often the spot size of the laser is only 0.2 cm^2. That is right, only...

Confused by the extravagantly high wattage of LED Panel claims? Or maybe someone is trying to tell you that they have "superior" 5 Watt LED bulbs compared to standard 3 Watt bulbs? Check out this post where we deconstruct and measure the ACTUAL LED watts, and we aren't particularly impressed with the result.

Can you find a high-quality red light panel on Alibaba? We have been searching high-and low, and are constantly disappointed with quality. This light panel shows some promise by being low flicker and low EMF!
