Another day, another disappointing red light therapy product review! This 36W Wolezek Red Light Therapy light bulb offers a super affordable way to start with the benefits of red light therapy. But once again we are disappointed by the much lower intensity than advertised, high flicker, and high EMFs from this light - especially since we have already did a thorough review of a different light bulb on our YouTube channel. At this point it is no surprise that this light bulb false advertises their intensity. It is a systemic issue across nearly all red light panel and bulb manufacturers...

Is it beneficial to mix heat and light? Can we improve the safety and effectiveness of Photobiomodulation by keeping the tissue cool? We explore how it could be advantageous to avoid too much tissue heating during photobiomodulation. And in fact cooling the tissue beforehand can improve penetration and effectiveness!

Use our simple universal dosage calculator to find your ideal time to do light therapy!

All you need to do it enter in the Irradiance (mW/cm^2) and the desired Dose (J/cm^2) that you are looking for! You can even use it for any red light panel in the industry, assuming they provide you with accurate 3rd party measurements, and not just cheap solar power meter measurements.

Once you are familiar with all of the important parameters of wavelengths, intensity, flicker, and nnEMF that we cover in previous blog posts, it might be time to dig deeper into what other design choices might be important for Photobiomodulation devices. One interesting topic is the Beam Angle! This describes the angle at which light is emitted from the device. If you can imagine in 3D space, light is being emitted as a kind of semi-spherical cone outward from the light source.  The angle of this cone is important to determine how to best use the device. For example wide...
