From space to you! Based on NASA research on healing with LED lights. Safe, effective, affordable LED light can speed healing, soothe sore muscles, ease chronic pain, relieve stiffness, and increase circulation. This non-drug alternative treatment will amaze you with rapid effects.
Near Infrared (NIR) 850 nm light penetrates 2-3” to increase blood flow and release nitric oxide to soothe and heal sore muscles and joints. Also helpful for toning the face and skin.
Note: While NIR light does not harm tissue, it can heat it up, therefore it makes sense to avoid using it directly on the thyroid or eyes for longer than a minute or so.
Elixa’s LED arrays put out approximately 40mW/cm2 or 1 joule per minute per cm2, more light per dollar than any other arrays we know of. Each LED puts out approx. 4000mcd at 10mW. This compares favorably with so-called Cold Lasers and Low-level Lasers. They do not pulse because that would add significant cost to the product, and we have seen no solid, double-blinded research that indicates a difference in healing effects between pulsed and constant light.
120 LED NIR (850nm) Array includes
- Universal 110-240v AC adaptor (will not work with batteries)
- Array approx. 3/4″x2″x4″
- Free S&H in US.
“Low-energy photon irradiation by light in the far-red to Near-InfraRed spectral range with low-energy lasers or LED arrays has been found to modulate various biological processes in cell culture and animal models. This phenomenon of photobiomodulation has been applied clinically in the treatment of soft tissue injuries and the acceleration of wound healing. The mechanism of photobiomodulation by red to near-IR light at the cellular level has been ascribed to the activation of mitochondrial respiratory chain components, resulting in initiation of a signaling cascade that promotes cellular proliferation and cytoprotection.”
“Cytochrome oxidase is an integral membrane protein that contains four redox active metal centers and has a strong absorbance in the far-red to near-IR spectral range detectable in vivo by near-IR spectroscopy.”
“Moreover, 660–680 nm of irradiation has been shown to increase electron transfer in purified cytochrome oxidase, increase mitochondrial respiration and ATP synthesis in isolated mitochondria, and up-regulate cytochrome oxidase activity in cultured neuronal cells.”
“LED photostimulation induces a cascade of signaling events initiated by the initial absorption of light by cytochrome oxidase. These signaling events may include the activation of immediate early genes, transcription factors, cytochrome oxidase subunit gene expression, and a host of other enzymes and pathways related to increased oxidative metabolism.”
“In addition to increased oxidative metabolism, red to near-IR light stimulation of mitochondrial electron transfer is known to increase the generation of reactive oxygen species. These mitochondrially generated reactive oxygen species may function as signaling molecules to provide communication between mitochondria and the cytosol and nucleus.”
