Far infrared (FIR), can stimulate cells and tissues and is considered a promising treatment modality for certain medical conditions. Our technological advances have provided new techniques for delivering FIR to the human body.
Benefits of Infrared Heat
Help Muscular Injuries
Infrared heat can also help you if you have a muscular injury. Increasing blood flow to you injured muscle helps increase healing.
Help Wounds Heal
Another benefit to infrared energy is that it helps wounds to heal more rapidly. Accelerated healing is accomplished by increasing micro-circulation as well as nitric oxide levels. This is especially beneficial for people such as diabetics, who have difficulty healing.
Far infrared radiation (FIR): its biological effects and medical applications
“If it can be proved that non-heating FIR has real and significant biological effects, then the possible future applications are wide ranging. Not only could bandages and dressings made out of NIR emitting fabrics be applied for many medical conditions and injuries that require healing, but there is a large potential market in lifestyle enhancing applications. Garments may be manufactured for performance enhancing apparel in both leisure activities and competitive sports areas. Cold weather apparel would perform better by incorporating FIR emitting capability and sleeping environments could be improved by mattresses and bedding emitting FIR.”
