1. TENDLITE Therapy

TENDLITE Red Light Therapy Device

red light therapy

Key Features

First, the Tendlite uses the same light therapy (phototherapy) technology NASA used to provide pain relief and speed up healing.

Second, the light penetrates deeply to reach injured tissue. Consequently, it speeds up pain relief. By the way, pain relief is due to the immediate restoration of blood circulation in the deep tissue. Which, in turn, reduces inflammation.

Third, the red light therapy for skin uses very safe medical grade 3,000 milliwatts Light Emitting Diode or LED. Meanwhile, the LED generates 660 nanometer (nm) wavelength red light.

Fourth, the portable Tendlite is lightweight, yet made of durable material. So, you can use this light therapy at home or take it with you anywhere.

Fifth, the package includes a zippered storage sleeve, wrist band, protective eyewear, two rechargeable batteries, and a charger.

Also, the Tendlite is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared medical device, under K-100213, to treat various types of pain.

Furthermore, it is recommended that you do not exceed three 1-minute sessions a day.

Finally, it comes with a 60-days money back guarantee.

Use

First, use this red light therapy at home for three, one or two minute daily sessions.

Second, use this red light therapy at home for chronic or acute pain, arthritis, back pain, joint pain, tendonitis, sprains, or other muscle aches and pain. Also, the Tendlite helps ligaments and tendons supporting a joint, not the joint itself.

Third, the therapy is used directly on the injuries.

Finally, check out the FAQ for red light therapy benefits and more insight.

PROS

First, the Tendlite uses LED to generate 660 nm red light.

Second, this light therapy for skin is best used in treating small areas.

Finally, treatment requires only 1 or 2 minute sessions.

CONS

While there is 60 day money back guarantee, there is no mention of a longer warranty.

2. DGYAO Near Infrared Therapy

Red Light Near Infrared Therapy

DGYAO near infrared

Key Features

First, the shorter 13.8” x 8” x 0.6” wearable flexible pad has a 12” x 6” treatment area that helps reduce treatment time.

Second, this treatment area has 117 embedded red lights and near infrared lights that penetrate deep into your body’s tissue.

Third, the rows of red lights alternate with rows of near infrared lights.

So, in total, there are 52 visible red lights with a wavelength of 660 nanometer (nm) providing red light therapy for skin. And, these red lights reach deep layers of your skin, where they stimulate cellular repair and increase blood circulation. As a result, these red lights promote a more vibrant, youthful complexion that is invisible to the naked eye.

Also, there are 65, invisible, near infrared lights with a wavelength of 880 nm. By the way, the 880 nm near infrared light can penetrate 0.2 to 0.4 inches deep into your body. So, the near infrared light gets absorbed by muscles and subcutaneous tissue. Now, your body responds to this light by increasing blood flow. As a result, this area of the body gets more oxygen and nutrients that it needs to function more effectively. Furthermore, infrared treatment can increase phagocytosis of cells and eliminate swelling. Lastly, infrared treatment helps decrease chronic inflammation.

Now, both the long and short pads are soft and comfortable. Also, the pads can be attached to your body using the included Velcro straps. Indeed, the longer Velcro strap is used for the longer pad and the shorter one for the shorter pad.

Next, the red light therapy at home automatically shuts-off after 20 minutes. However, it is recommended that you do not exceed 40 minutes in a singe therapy session.

Finally, the Dgyao therapy components come with a 1-year full warranty. In addition, Dgyao provides free replacement of charger, controller, and connectors over their life.

Use

First, the 8” x 43” long pad is used for your back, hips, or chest. For example, the long pad is used to relieve back pain.

Second, the 13.8” x 8” x 0.6” shorter pad is used on the neck, arms, shoulders, knee, feet, and elbow.

Third, these pads are used for arthritis, feet, joints, muscles, knee, elbow inflammation, and nerve damage.

Fourth, the pads are used for strain of lumbar muscles, sciatica, tendonitis, bursitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Fifth, the pads are used to accelerate healing of scars, wounds, cuts, and nerve damage.

Also, the pads are used to alleviate pain caused by sprains, swelling, and sports injuries.

In addition, both pads can be used to accelerate tissue recovery after surgery.

heat lamp

Key Features

First, Serfory lamp set uses a 150-watts near infrared and deep red-light bulb.

Second, most of the near infrared rays are absorbed by the skin and converted into heat energy, causing skin temperature to rise. As a result, the shallow blood vessels and veins dilate, which, in turn, improves blood circulation.

Third, it is recommended to use this device from 5 to 18 minutes per session. Furthermore, it is recommended you use it from 3 to 7 times a week.

Finally, the Serfory lamp comes with a 1-year warranty. Also, you get a free bulb replacement for the first six months.

Also, its maximum height is 25.6 inches.

Use

First, the Serfory red light therapy at home is used for muscle ache, joint pain in the legs, back, knees, shoulders, and elbows.

Second, the light therapy helps relieve lumbar muscle strain, leg strain, cervical pain and healing wounds.

Third, the red light therapy helps reduce chronic pain, relieve sore and stiff muscles.

Fourth, the Serfory red light therapy boost blood circulation, improve quality of sleep, and help recover from a surgery.

Finally, check out the FAQ for red light therapy benefits and more insight.

PROS

First, this device is good for treating larger areas of the body.

Second, there is a free bulb replacement in the first six months.

4. Hooga Red Light Therapy

Red Light Therapy Device Panel - HG300

red light therapy panel

Key Features

First, the Hooga’s red light therapy at home panel emits in equal proportions:

660 nm red light therapy for skin. This light is absorbed by the skin tissue making it great for boosting skin health and increase production of collagen.

850 nm near infrared light. This invisible light has a strong ability to penetrate deeper into the tissue, organs, and joints, making it ideal for faster muscle recovery and reducing joint pain.

Second, the beam angle of the 60 LEDs is 60 degrees.

Third, the device is equipped with two power switches. The first power switch allows the user to turn on the 30 LEDs emitting 660 nm red light. Meanwhile, the second power switch allows the user to turn on the 30 LEDs emitting 850 nm near infrared light. Therefore, the user can customize treatment experience and receive either red, near infrared, or both types of light.

Fourth, the panel features a whisper quiet internal fan that dissipates heat and ensures the unit does not overheat.

Fifth, a door mount and adjustable hanging kit is also included, making it easy to use this red light therapy at home.

Also, due to power efficient LEDs, the lifespan of the panel is 50,000+ hours.

In addition, the panel has very low EMF output and is safe for EMF sensitive users.

Furthermore, it is recommended to use this device for 10 to 15 minute duration, once or twice a day.

Finally, the panel comes with a 2-year warranty. In addition, if any issues arise with the panel that were not a result of misuse, the panel will either be repaired or replaced.

Other Features

Now, the Hooga panel delivers an irradiance or power output of

100 mw per square centimeters 3” from the panel’s surface with a 15” x 14” coverage area,

73 mw per square centimeter 6 inches from the panel’s surface with a 20” x 18” coverage area,

41 mw per square centimeter 12 inches from the panel’s surface with a 26” x 24” coverage area, and

24 mw per square centimeter 18 inches from the panel’s surface with a 31” x 28” coverage area.

And, as you can see, the further you position yourself away from the lamp the greater the area of your body getting the light. However, the power of the light received by your body decreases. So, if you want to get full body coverage, you would stand further away from the lamp. On the other hand, if you want to target a specific narrow area of your body, you would stand closer to the lamp. Furthermore, to get the optimum dose of red and/or near infrared light, you would have to expose yourself for longer time the further away you are from the lamp.

Use

Most of all, use the Hooga red light therapy at home to help muscles recover, grow hair, increase collagen production for skin and joint health, increase cellular energy, and reduce inflammation.

Finally, check out the FAQ for red light therapy benefits and more insight.
