The New Wave Therapy Pad uses a combination of both Red 660nm and Near Infrared 850nm LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) which are know to be the most effective wavelengths found by multiple scientific researchers for the last three decades.
Red 660nm LED:
This light can be seen by the human eye and targets skin cells and penetrates to the third layer of the skin.
Near Infrared 850nm LED:
This light cannot be seen by the human eye and has the ability to penetrate deeper than Red Light waves.
Using Pulsing Light for Deeper Relief:
It has been discovered that when LED lights are pulsed, body tissue can heal more rapidly.
When LED light is given in a continuous burst, it sedates the cell and relieves pain. When a single frequency pulsed light hits the cell, it stimulates the cell to start producing more protein than it normally does; as a result, the cell heals faster. When the LED light is taken away, the cell continues its healing process.
As opposed to the pulsing light that is best for healing; a continuous steady light source can remove the dull pain, reduce inflammation, and allow muscle tissue to relax.
660 & 850nm Multi-function Therapy Pad
Light therapy has been around for over 40 years. It emits specific wavelengths of light to restore, repair, and protect body tissues taht have been injured, degenerated, or at risk of dying. While varying wavelengths affect the body differently, the most effective wavelengths for internal healing range from 625nm to 900 nm; that is why New Wave Therapy concentrates on 660nm and 850nm wavelengths.
