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.

In a previous blog post we uncovered a massive deception in the red light therapy industry, that we can easily find that many manufacturers are using a cheap solar power meter to report their intensity, yet they tend to read falsely high by over 2x! We can even find discrepancies from independent reviewers such as Alex Fergus. He used a spectrometer to measure intensity from many of the major brands at 6 inches. Even with his spectrometer, he found that ALL of the brands were significantly less intensity than advertised, especially since most of them claim to deliver >100mW/cm^2. https://www.alexfergus.com/blog/what-red-light-therapy-panel-has-the-highest-power-output-let-s-find-out...

As you know I have been very interested in flicker these past few years. Not only can flicker affect our red light therapy experience, but I find flicker affects me everywhere in my daily life. So why do you want a flicker or pulse meter for yourself? - Measure pulse rate from Red Light Therapy or PBM products. - Test for flicker on your light-bulbs, computer monitors, and LED products. - Test for PWM (pulsed width modulation) in dimming products. - Test for flicker or PWM when using a slow-motion camera doesn't find anything. Well instead of sending every single...
