Infrared radiation (IR), also called infrared light, is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) with wavelengths longer than those of visible light. IR wavelengths extend from the nominal red edge of the visible spectrum at 0.7 micrometers or microns (frequency 430 THz), to 1 millimeter (300 GHz).
6 – 14 Micron bandwidth essential to grow of living things
Far Infrared (FIR)
Far infrared (FIR) radiation is a IR subdivision of the electromagnetic spectrum and has been clinically investigated for biological effects, mostly within the sub-range of roughly 3-12µm (biological window).
Engineering advances over the last years have provided new techniques and fabrics for delivering FIR to the human body, completely eliminating the near and mid infrared bands and even narrowing down the FIR range.
The classification of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE):
0.7– 1.4 μm
1.4– 3.0 μm
Far Infrared/IR-C 3.0– 1000 μm
All provided info is based on a study reference,published in the National Library of Medicine in 2012:
State of the art technology today is based on Carbon Fibre flat applicators, either cast in panels (FIR Saunas) or mesh wire constructions (whole body applicators), emitting a range of approx. 3-15μm with an absorption resonance depth of 2-3 inches (50-75mm)
FIR creates a holistic effect from the inside-out (similar to PEMF) = thermal AND a-thermal radiation will be absorbed and enhanced through vibrational and rotational effects on a multi-molecular level.
Properties of Far Infrared
Conventional heating pads work from the outside in (thermal energy) and once removed, the therapeutic value quickly goes away. In contrast, Far Infrared penetrates through the skin and insulating layer of fat, producing warming effects from the inside out!
Resonance Absorption rate is very efficient due to the small distance between the user and the emission surface and its even distribution.
A FIR application feels extremely pleasant, soothing and relaxing and is very safe and free of noticeable risks.
