Infrared (IR) radiation, also called infrared light, is electromagnetic radiation (EMR) whose wavelengths are longer than those of visible light. IR wavelengths range from the nominal limit of the visible red component, about 0.7 micrometers or microns (frequency 430 THz), to 1 millimeter (300 GHz).
Far Infrared (FIR)
In recent years, new technologies and materials have been developed that allow the targeted application of FIR waves to the human body within a very narrow and well-defined frequency spectrum.
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

Properties of Far Infrared
Conventional heat sources work from the outside in (thermal effect) and lose their therapeutic effect as soon as they are removed/deactivated. Far Infrared, on the other hand, penetrates the skin and the insulating layers of fat, providing a sustained heat effect from the inside out!
The short distance between the user and the emitter results in a very efficient resonance absorption rate and even distribution.
A Far Infrared application feels very pleasant, soothing and relaxing, and at the same time is safe and risk-free.
