Light emitted by LEDs is able to heal? Whether you like it or not, NASA were said to use LED technology to heal their astronauts. And now you can carry out your own healing at home by using a handheld LED pain reliever. The device emits light that will penetrate deep into tissue, providing long-lasting relief from muscle pains.
Using technology developed by NASA to heal astronauts’ injuries, this device’s 60 LEDs produce safe infrared heat to stimulate blood circulation, relieve swelling in joints, and loosen tight muscles. A study at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee showed the LED technology reduced painful inflammation by up to 37%. Unlike heating pads that only treat just below the skin’s surface, the LED light penetrates deep into tissue for lasting relief from muscle aches. The device begins to relieve pain when placed 1/4″ from the skin. The lightweight, brush-shaped design is easy to move around the body and hold in place. Includes a travel bag. Plugs into AC. 7 1/2″ L x 2 3/4″ W x 1 1/4″ D. (5 oz.)
The device doesn’t run on batteries, it requires AC power source which makes it less portable. You can get it from Hammacher at a rather steep price of $160.
