Luminous Quality For Optimal Photobiomodulation
Light has an impact on our well-being — this conclusion has been drawn by numerous studies across the globe. In particular, positive effects can be achieved with light in the red and infrared wavelengths.
With this in mind, Lichtblock GmbH has developed a compact light system that radiates red light in wavelengths of 630, 660 and 850 nm.
In order to test the quality of the systems and document their effectiveness with correct and comparable values, the company uses an Ophir® power gauge from MKS.
All light is not alike
The basic idea of photobiomodulation goes back a long way.
In the 1960s, researchers discovered that laser light can affect tissue structures. Since then, numerous studies conducted around the world have shown, among other things, that the light from LEDs — especially in the 630-850 nm wavelength range — has a positive effect on humans. It’s a topic that fascinates chiropractor Daniel Sentker, and one that he’s been working on intensively for nearly a decade.
In his practice, he now works primarily with photobiomodulation.
His key insight: A high proportion of blue light can disturb our biorhythm and disrupt our internal clock, thus triggering a variety of undesirable effects in humans. So, his goal was to develop a product that’s easy to use, fast and accessible on-the-go, which would allow many people to exploit the positive effects of red light.
