What is the LightStim LED Bed?
(AKA: Photobiomodulation/Red Light Therapy)?
Let’s first breakdown what Photobiomodulation actually is: “Photo” = LIGHT. “Bio” = LIFE. “Modulation” = CHANGE.
Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) is a technical term for light therapy. Using harmless forms of light sources such as low level lasers or LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes), PBMT aids in the facilitation of tissue repair and reduction of inflammation (pain) wherever the beam is applied.
The LightStim LED Bed is the first, full body photobiomodulation (in the form of a bed) to receive over-the-counter FDA Clearance. It is cleared by the FDA for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain, arthritic pain and stiffness (because it reduces inflammation throughout the entire body), muscle soreness and spasm, and increased blood flow, which is the body’s natural way of aiding the healing process by bringing oxygen and nutrients to the areas of pain.
How Does LightStim (Photobilmodulation) Work?
LightStim’s Multiwave®, patented technology simultaneously emits multiple wavelengths (colors) of light. This combination of red and infrared light work together to stimulate an increase in blood circulation and reduction of inflammation. The process does not work by heat. It works because our cells contain “chromophores” which literally absorb light. Once the light is absorbed, it sets off a complex group of physical and chemical reactions within the cell. These reactions can and do extend to cells that have not even been exposed to the light. All the effects of this process have so far been positive and beneficial, providing your body the opportunity to innately relieve pain, expedite healing and promote total body regeneration down to the cellular level.
Beyond that, the benefits of the 630nm, 660nm, 850-855nm and 940nm wavelengths and LightStim’s patented MultiWave® used in the LED Bed are many and are backed by numerous clinical studies. They include: Two of the four wavelengths used in the Bed are the same that are in LightStim’s FDA Cleared device for wrinkles, which build collagen and elastin to help reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin. This is accomplished with LED by feeding the cells the exact wavelengths of light, which they convert to ATP, (adenosine triphosphate) the fuel that the cell uses to “do its job”. Other wavelengths of the Bed release Nitric Oxide (NO) in the body. (Refer to our FAQ section to learn more on the importance of Nitric Oxide.)
