Why do we add pulsing to our red light therapy devices? The three main reasons we add pulsing in our devices are: first, it decreases tissue heating. Second, it induces brainwave entrainment; and it has its own unique benefits. The hertz (Hz) stands for cycles per second, in other words, the pulses. This being said, slow pulses are meant to decrease nerve sensitivity by...
Nushape offers two different devices, the NeuroWrap and the NeuroWrap Pulse. The difference is that the NeuroWrap Pulse offers Red Light Therapy and PEMF treatments (combined and separate). Whereas the NeuroWrap is the best option for PEMF-sensitive customers, check our PEMF contraindications article! We will now explore the various benefits found in the NeuroWrap and NeuroWrap Pulse! The Neurowrap is calibrated to the same...
NeuroWrap Pulse Benefits
Red light therapy first gained prominence in 1903, when Danish physicist Niels Ryberg Finsen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology, for his pioneering work on the therapeutic and physiological effects of light treatment from artificial light sources and his invention of light therapy for skin tuberculosis.
Hungarian physician, Endre Mester, developed the first low-level laser therapy device in 1967 and tested its effects on skin cancer. He later used the device to show the effects of laser light on wound healing processes. In the 1960s LED Therapy was being used for treatment of chronic pain, arthritis and associated conditions, joint rehabilitation, and soft-tissue injury along with other medical ailments in Eastern Europe and in the USA for equestrian rehabilitation.
The study of Red light therapy grows vastly, with trials being done at leading research centers and institutions like . Many professional sports teams and athletes begin using LED therapy to aid in sports related injuries, and physical therapists discover recovery times up to 50 times faster than without Red light therapy.
NASA discovers red light therapy is effective for treating pain while maintaining astronauts' muscle mass while in space, and reports a 40 percent improvement in musculoskeletal training injuries treated with the light-emitting diodes - and publishes a press release stating “NASA scientists have found that cells exposed to near-infrared light from LEDs, which is energy just outside the visible range, grow 150 to 200 percent faster than cells not stimulated by such light. The light arrays increase energy (ATP and nitric oxide) that speed up the healing process.”
Despite being used effectively for nearly a decade the FDA approves the first low level laser therapy devices to treat inflammation, acne and pain
Jessica Charles develops the first wearable Red Light Therapy device and launches Nushape, bringing clinical grade light therapy to the home user at a fraction of the cost paid for in office visits.
