660 nm Red speeds up healing. 660 nanometer wavelength is the fastest way to regenerate tissue. So if you have an injury you would normally recover from in ten days, you can actually recover that tissue in two days by treating it with light.
WAVELENGTH OF CELL TISSUE About ten years later at the University of Chicago, researchers discovered that the average wavelength of cell tissue in the human body ranged between 600 nanometers and 720 nm; 660 is the mid-point. So in essence, the reason a 660 nm works better than any other single frequency is because it is closer to the resonant frequency of cell tissue. The other reason is that 660 nm absorbs better in hemoglobin.
This LED technology has already flown on Space Shuttle missions, and shows promise for wound healing applications of benefit to Space Station astronauts, and in Special Operations.
880 nm Infrared increases circulation. 880 nm Infrared increases circulation. This is invisible infrared and it stimulates the production of Nitric Oxide in the tissue to expand the capillaries which then increases blood circulation in the area. Often used to soothe sore muscles and joints.
Blue helps to soothe and cool inflammation and swelling, and is also used by people to reduce acne.
This LED array is set up so you can operate the red, infrared or the blue leds separately or all together. You can select which ones you want to use with the three switches. It has 120 LEDs – 5 rows of 8 LEDs each of the 660 red, 880 infrared and the Blue.
The Red 660nm Leds put out 4000 mcd each. The Blue 470nm Leds put out 7,000 mcd each. The Infrared 880nm put out about 6.4 mw each.
Comes with a 12 volt switching power supply that will work anywhere in the world.
Led Unit Measurements are:
- 5 inches long plus 1/2 inch for switches
- 2 3/4 Wide 1 Inch thick Ergonomic case with
- rubber feet on the corners
The LEDs protrude up above case and can be held right against the skin. The units get warm under operation and must not be left unsupervised. Do not fall asleep with them ON.
