Producing the most effective red light and near-infrared light therapy system requires careful engineering that balances the amount of energy emitted from each diode, the total amount of energy emitted from the device, and the distance between the light source and the body. Smart Sun Therapy has been engineered with these factors in mind, making the SST28 the only device on the market today maximizing these efficiencies.
The SST28 utilizes 28,433 Light-emitting Diodes, or LED’s in a carefully balanced configuration to maximize the benefits of the therapy device. Let’s take a look at what else makes the SST28 the best therapy unit on the market today.
Advanced LED Technology
Some red light therapy devices use low-pressure lamps because they are inexpensive but there are many drawbacks. Low-pressure lamps, by design, diffuse the light 360 degrees so only a small fraction of the light reaches the skin. This low-output lamp degrades quickly with distance making the total output just a small fraction of the output of an LED. The result is a less potent lamp at a greater distance from the skin that provides minimal results as compared to the SST28.
LED technology was designed by NASA for stimulating astronaut health. LED light sources were found to be significantly more effective at delivering very specific wavelengths of light with higher intensity. Through careful engineering, the SmartSun Therapy SST28 is designed to maximize the increased efficiency of LED light technology by taking advantage of a number of key factors.
Targeted Light – Red 635 nm – Near-Infrared 850 nm
The SST28 LED lights deliver very specific therapeutic wavelengths of red light at 635 nanometers and near-infrared light at 850 nanometers. These very specific wavelengths have been determined to deliver the best results for targeted red and near-infrared light therapy.
Higher Output = Better Results
The small LED’s are grouped in a tight configuration, creating more intense light energy per square inch aimed directly toward the treated area. Not all red light LED’s are the same. The LED’s designed for the SST28 are of the highest quality, providing increased output, better results, and longer life.
Position and Configuration
The 28,443 red and near-infrared LED’s are placed in very specific locations on the SST28 to maximize the benefits of the targeted light. While other devices utilize just one wavelength of light or place LED’s in alternate rows, the SST28’s LED placements have been carefully located in specific configurations to work more effectively on various parts of the body.
A finely tuned source of specific light energy, with a much higher output, directly targeting the body, offers the most effective therapeutic results.
Distance is Critical
Red and near-infrared light energy diminishes quickly with distance. Clamshell designed therapy beds may look aesthetically pleasing, but the amount of energy reaching the body can diminish more than 50% due to the distance away from the LED light source.
That’s why the SST28 is designed so the LED lights are almost touching the body. The SST28 combines the best targeted red and near-infrared light sources with a unique design bringing the lights closer to the body maximizing the intended therapeutic results.
Superior Light Source – Increased Output – Calculated Configuration – Close Proximity – The Most Advanced Red Light Therapy Device
Targeted and superior light source, increased output, calculated configuration, and close proximity. The Smart Sun Therapy SST28 delivers the most advanced results of any red light therapy device.
