Red / Infrared light therapy for prevention and treatment of injuries.
We have used our many years of experience with horse treatment and treatment products to create a new and completely optimized Infrared tool. Designed in close cooperation with professionals such as technicians , physiotherapists, chiropractors, riders and trainers, to fullfill everyones wishes and needs. Best quality, functionality and easy to use to a very fair price.
Infrared therapy is a new and innovative light-based method to treat pain and inflammation in various parts of the body (preventive or acute). It is a method to treat acute or chronic pain, in a simple and painless therapy. Infrared light enhances cell regeneration and repair. So it helps the body to heal itself.
Infrared therapy is a safe and effective way to reduce pain and treat a wide array of conditions. It's a safe, effective, and drug-free way for long-lasting pain relief. It also helps to heal injured body parts. With the treatment of injuries come multiple benefits such as pain relief, reduction of inflammation, and the restoration of the function of the affected body part. Other conditions that can be treated by infrared therapy include joint pain, joint inflammation, muscle pain, spine injuries, nerve pain, and all sports injuries.
Infrapower tools are made to use on your horse. Therefore durability and quality was as important to us in the development as the functionalty. We have created a solid and practical design, which even protects the horse during treatment (see legwraps). Batteries are safely wrapped and attached. The LEDs are protected against dirt, humidity and damage with a thin cover, which of course does not affect the treatment. The cover can be cleaned with water and a soft cloth. All Infrapower products are very easy to use and are equipped with a timer. You can choose in between 5 min, 15 min or 30 min treatment for your horse. Easy to adjust with just one button. A longer press turns on or off the Infrapower, when it lights up in red it will run for 5 min. An other light press and the button changes the color, then it runs 15 min or again a light press and the timer runs for 30 min. no further, lengthy explanation necessary.
Light therapy is a process in which energy (photons) is absorbed through the skin and absorbed by photoreceptors in the cell's mitochondria. The hemoglobin in the cell is then released to release nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is an important signaling molecule that dilates blood vessels, enabling increased circulation and oxygenation of tissues. This is important for tissue regeneration at any level. Visible red light at wavelengths from 630 to 700 nm penetrates tissue to a depth of approx. 10 mm. Light at this wavelength is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, triggers and acupuncture points and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (800 to 1000 nm) penetrates to a depth of approx. 50 mm and deeper, making it more effective in treating deeper muscle structures, tendons, ligaments, joints, bones and organs. Although both red and infrared wavelengths penetrate different depths and affect tissues differently, the therapeutic effects are similar. Super-luminous LEDs (light emitting diodes) are safe concentrated light sources used to produce the specific wavelengths of light that provide therapeutic benefits of light therapy without unwanted side effects. LEDs at specific wavelengths increase circulation by increasing the formation of new capillaries. This allows more blood supply - thus more oxygen and vital nutrients reach the tissue. This increased circulation also allows faster removal of metabolic wastes. LED therapy releases endorphins. Endorphins are the body's natural chemicals that fight pain. LED therapy helps to relax muscles and reduce stress.
