WTF IS PHOTOBIOMODULATION



Photobiomodulation (PBMT), also known as near-infrared light therapy is a well-researched tool for healing.







While the photo above looks like it's some sort of sci-fi tanning bed, it's actually our Photobiomodulation Bed. Using pulsing near infrared light at 10 HZ, this bad boy can heal you from the inside out.


Wisconsin Center for Space Automation and Robotics, a NASA-sponsored research center teamed up with Quantum Devices Inc. (QDI) to find a way to grow plants in space, finding that LED could successfully "provide the necessary wavelengths and intensities for photosynthesis."⁠ ⁠


NASA then found these lights could be used for astronaut health in "maintaining healthy growth of cells, including preventing bone and muscle loss and boosting the body's ability to heal wounds all adversely affected by prolonged weightlessness. Thus, having determined that LEDs can be used to grow plants in space, NASA decided to investigate whether LEDs might be used for photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT)."⁠
