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.

Have you been duped into buying a high intensity LED panel that claims a suspiciously round number like 100mW/cm^2 at 6 inches? We often see extremely high intensity numbers being advertised, but these numbers are based on improper measurement tools, techniques, and biased rounding. This blog will help to elucidate the greatest bait-n-switch being performed in the red light therapy industry today. One of the most important parameters of red light therapy is indeed the intensity! This is normally described as the power per square area, in units of milliWatts per Square Centimeter (mW/cm^2). This is a physical quantity that...

Enhance intensity and penetration with a crystal ball! Here we use the crystal ball as a focusing lens to concentrating the wide angle beams from standard LED panels to a narrow spot!

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...

As the sun is out for shorter periods of time, we may start to feel a bit tired and down. The obvious solution would be to to supplement with light, however there are many considerations to make to implementing a robust solution to combat SAD! While the GembaRed light panel can play an important part of addressing the winter blues, it does not act as a traditional SAD light. There are many other lighting options to consider when creating an optimal lighting environment for winter! 1. Embrace the Cold! Nature and our biology has given us everything we need to...
