Most red light panel brands are stating something like “no EMFs at 6 inches away.” Or “zero EMF exposure at treatment distance”. Why is that statement there? What are EMFs, and why do nearly all brands mention it? What happens if you ARE exposed to those EMFs?   EMFs are Electromagnetic Frequencies, which we defined in a previous blog about what they are and how they are generated in red light panels. In this blog, we dig up the original reasons why many brands still talk about EMF, and look into the scientific literature to see if there is any...

How long should you use red light therapy? We know that the amount of time is connected to the dose of photobiomoduation. Which is critical to proper use and effectiveness. But we think that time plays a much bigger role in effectiveness than you are being told. A quick recap, here is the simple formula for red light therapy dosing. Dose (J/cm^2) = Intensity (mW/cm^2) ÷ 1000 * Time (Seconds) Theoretically, we could just focus what we call the dose. Two-Dimensional Dosing Theory: The dose relates to the biological effect of red light therapy. Too little dose gets no response....

Is Red Light Therapy Safe to Use at home? This is a very common question we get about our products and Red Light Therapy. So it might be time to explore the safety profile for red light therapy, how safe is it, where there may be contraindications, and how side effects are produced and tips to avoid issues. In this blog we have compiled one of the most complete list of references for the safety profile for Red Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation. So we highly encourage after reading our summary, to read some of these references yourself. Disclaimer: As always,...

How do you properly measure intensity, power, or watts of a red light therapy panel? For what SHOULD BE a simple measurement, has turned into the biggest scam of the photobiomodulation industry. We set the record straight and recommend affordable laser power meters and 3rd party labs!

What is the best 250 Watt Near-Infrared Incandescent Heat Lamp? NIR Heat Lamps are a very affordable form of Red Light Therapy that have been used therapeutically for many years! But which brand stands out as the best? As always, we need to test them out to be sure. Although we can call 250W Heat Lamps a form of Red Light Therapy, it does NOT fit the definition of Photobiomodulation. Where PBM is strictly defined to be a non-thermal interaction of wavelengths and biology. It is important to recognize the tremendous amount of heat produced by these 250W heat lamps,...
