First Developed by NASA. Now Available for Personal Pain Relief.
NASA first started researching and developing red light therapy for plant growth in space. After discovering these lights needed too much power and produced too much heat, they found another use for them: pain management and bone/muscle mass preservation for astronauts in space. Today, dpl® pain relief products use the same red light therapy to aid in pain relief, improve blood circulation, and enhance & quicken the healing process.
Safe to Use, Drug-Free, and FDA-Cleared Pain Relief.
Red light therapy products have been medically proven to be safe and effective. dpl® red light therapy products for pain relief are safe for all skin types, serve as a alternative to pain medications, and are FDA-cleared Class II medical devices.
For Back and Neck Pain Relief
The dpl® flex pad utilizes red and near infrared LED light therapy to provide deep-penetrating pain relief without drugs. By just using the device for 20 minutes per day, you can be free from back pain with increased blood circulation, a faster recovery time, and no side effects compared to traditional pain medications.
If your painful area is bigger than 5” x 8”, must you move it around frequently? Also, I red that mixing red and infrared wavelengths was unwise because they might interfere with one another. Have you studied this?
Yes, we recommend moving it after each session to ensure complete coverage. We haven't had any reports of these two wavelengths interfering. Both work in unison as infrared is more effective at reaching deeper into the skin, joints, and nerves.
