Light is essential to life, and the “application” of Light Energy has been used for thousands of years. Long before ancient cultures understood what it was, they recognized the Sun as the source of the planet’s energy and the provider of life. Ancient Egypt deified it as Ra, the “sun god”, and believed that bathing in light of varying colours would promote the healing of certain ailments. Chinese texts going back thousands of years describe treating skin and mental disorders with a range of colour and light therapies. Even the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, understood the power of light and encouraged sitting in sunlight as a cure for various disorders.
Over the thousands of years since, significant advancements in science have occurred, resulting in a greater understanding of how light energy affects biology. The most notable advancements have happened in the latter part of this century. In the early 1990s, NASA and Quantum Devices began trying to discover how to make plants grow in space. This collaboration resulted in a new understanding of how light interacted with biology and soon after, research turned to understanding the effect of light energy on human and animal cells.
Their research led to the discovery that Light Energy can help support the body in the reduction of pain and inflammation by increasing blood flow and circulation through a natural response, oftentimes without the need for expensive or addictive drugs. In further research, it’s been discovered that Light Energy applied in specific colours is much more beneficial:
Infrared Light can penetrate deeply into the body and has the most potential to support the body’s natural healing of severely damaged tissue. The longer non-visible wavelengths of the infrared spectrum makes it ideal for the deeper applications to bone, cartilage, tendons, discs, teeth and inflammation concerns. Light stimulation also increases blood flow, which can help the body to bring nutrients and cellular growth factors to areas that need them most.
Red Light seems to assist wounds heal faster than they would without the application of red light. It has also been shown to increase cellular activity at the dermal level and stimulate collagen production, which dictates the strength of skin.
Blue Light acts as an antibacterial agent and seems to have a special ability to reset our biological clocks. Application of blue light has been shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder, among other mood disorders, as well as being able to increase alertness or fight insomnia depending on the application time.
In Light Wellness Systems light devices are the most powerful device on the market. They combine super-luminous Red, Blue and Infrared LEDs set in flexible, neoprene pads, with versatile controllers that use a carefully timed sequence of settings (pulses) to encourage change to occur more rapidly.
200mw, 17º infrared LEDs, 4,500 millicandlaria (mcd) visible red LEDs. The effective “as measured” output per diode is 72Mw/cm2 for IR and 5Mw/cm2 for visible red.
In Light Wellness Systems components are designed to work together with pads available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Commonality between clinical and home units allow users to experience the same benefits in either environment.
The devices are incredibly easy to use, with simple, automatic controls or manual override settings and unlimited pad placement options, In Light Wellness Systems are:
