Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/04/2017 -- Far infrared light is measured in microns and can be divided into far-infrared, mid-infrared, and near-infrared. The far-infrared light is a part of an invisible spectrum of the sun. The near-infrared ranges from 0.7 to 2.0 microns, mid-infrared ranges from 2 to 4 microns, and far-infrared ranges from 4 to 1,000 microns. The vibrant range for the best benefit is considered from 8.4 to 9.4 microns. The detectible red and far infrared portions of the spectrum that range from 660 to 880 wavelength are consider the vital range, as they are highly absorbent and create unique restorative effects on living tissues.

It is studied that the skin and underlying tissues absorb the light photons, which activate changes such as photobiomodulation in a body. Photobiomodulation is a light-induced photochemical reaction. Far infrared rays are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral and, therefore, can be beneficial in the treatment of a range of diseases. Far infrared waves are thermal, and in the electromagnetic spectrum, they are closer to the microwave region which we experience as heat. There are many benefits of natural sunlight delivered by far infrared heat without the dangerous effects of UV radiation. The thermal radiation is a prime source of infrared radiation, i.e., any object which has a temperature radiates in the infrared. It emits more infrared radiation as it gets warmer. Even cold objects such as an ice cube are likely to emit some evident infrared. The far infrared therapy devices use the deep penetrating light (DPL) systems are popular. Various physical conditions can be treated with DPL system. The system uses energy in the form of photons to penetrate deep into the skin. The far infrared light can penetrate up to 30 to 40 mm in the skin, which makes it more effective and preferable for joints, deep muscles, and bones.
The global FAR infrared includes variety of devices applicable for several indications such as FAR infrared heating pads, FAR infrared sauna, FAR infrared heater, FAR infrared sauna with carbon heater, FAR infrared gloves, FAR infrared lamp, and other light therapy devices. The FAR infrared therapy devices are used in a number of therapies such as pain relief, skin rejuvenation, and relief from sports injuries, toxin elimination, stress reduction, weight loss, restful sleep, and improving immune system. The rays help in heating muscles, nerves, blood vessels, joints, and bones. Conditions such as arteriovenous fistula (which causes blood to directly flow from an artery into a vein) can be treated by FAR infrared therapy devices. From widely used applications of FAR infrared devices for treating various medical conditions, the heating therapy is the most commonly used all over the world. The heating therapy is used to detoxify heavy metals, reduce cholesterol, and promote blood circulation. The ease of use, effectiveness, and safe and wide applicability of the FAR infrared therapy device are likely to drive the market in the near future. However, the threat of side effects, such as sunburn, may act as a restrain for the market.
