PrismCare offers whole body photobiomodulation cold laser red light therapy using the Prism Light Pod.
Red Light or Cold Laser therapy uses red LEDs to transmit red light into the your body to penetrate muscles, deep tissues, tendons, nerves and body cells to accelerate your body’s natural healing process. Another name for red light therapy is photobiomodulation or (PBM). Prism Light Pod uses 630nm, 660nm red LEDs and 850nm near-infrared LEDs which the FDA classifies as cold laser or class II light therapy systems. Using light waves over 900nm are classified as infrared heat-based as FDA class IV devices with higher certification and insurance requirements because infrared lights may burn patients. Therefore, Prism Light Pod does not use infrared heat-based LEDs.
Cold Laser, also known as LLLT (Low-level-laser therapy) is a class II device using red LED lights that does not emit heat as a modality. Infrared light therapy is class 4 devices that are higher red light waves beyond 900nm and uses heat. Infrared light therapy must be administered and moved or patients risk being burned. Prism Light Pods are non-invasive, non-fluorescent and non-infrared heat based.
They compliment each other. Handheld cold laser devices focus on healing one targeted patient area at a time and require a chiropractor to administer a small area at a time. It is an “Attended” service and takes time from the Chiropractor. Conversely, patients lay in the full body light pod and light therapy benefits their entire body including the targeted pain area. If you have more than one pain area to treat, the handheld requires much more time and attention from the chiropractor. The Prism Light Pod has six optimized settings and is an “Unattended” service.
Yes, the Prism Light Pod is non-invasive, non-fluorescent and non-infrared heat based. We include 630nm, 660nm red LEDs and 850nm near-infrared LEDs that are safe and non-heat-based. There are more than 3,000 National Institute of Health articles that support the benefits of red light therapy. Whole-body photobiomodulation systems are FDA-cleared and FDA-approved.
First, eye protection must be worn when lying in the light pod. Pregnant women, women breast-feeding should not lie within the light pod. Patients with active cancer must get a permission letter from their physician to use the Prism Light Pod. Patients can cover areas that they don’t want to be exposed to the red LED lights such as wearing a sports bra if they prefer not to lose fat cells within their breast area.
The Light Pod is optimized for six uses cases: Accelerates Performance Recovery, Arthritis & Joint Pain Relief, Chronic Pain Relief, Speeds Injury & Wound Healing, Accelerates Weight Loss and Improves Skin Tone & Anti-Aging.
Patients have seen performance recovery and pain relief after several 15-minute sessions. We recommend 2-3 weekly treatments for the Prism uses cases and ongoing preventative maintenance.
Patients will feel positive effects after one or more sessions. Studies show no negative side effects. However, positive impact from reduced stress, less fatigue, improved energy, weight-loss and fewer wrinkles were seen within patients. Results may vary based upon patient health and condition.
Those retrofitted tanning beds use fluorescent red LED tube lights that only penetrate the skin layer/epidermis. Fluorescent tube lights are on the hazardous materials list. The Prism Light Pod uses industrial strength red LED lights that directly penetrate into your muscles, deep tissue, tendons and body cells. It has six optimized use cases delivering photobiomodulation healing. The retrofitted tanning red light beds only promote anti-wrinkling. We have a detailed whitepaper explaining the differences.
