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...
