LED Lights for Effective, Pain-Relieving Light Therapy

aflogo-96x96This little Light Relief Therapy device from ActiveForever relieves pain fast and effectively through the use of LED lights. It’s one of our best-sellers; completely portable and very compact, it can be carried with you anywhere as if it were a simple pack of band-aids. Featuring advanced infrared light therapy however, this “ActiveForever approved product” is anything but.

Infrared LED’s are housed in a soft, bendable little pad which can be placed on just about any part of the body. It differs from traditional heating pads, in that the infrared, LED light therapy penetrates deep within human tissue, allowing it to soothe inflamed muscles and joints from the inside, as well as increasing circulation and speeding the healing process.

The Light Relief Therapy is also available in a larger pad to cover areas like the back or most of the shoulder, arm or leg.

What is LED?

According to National Geographic, LED stands for “light emitting diode.” A diode is an electrical component with two terminals which conduct the electricity only in one direction. With an electrical current, the diode emits a bright light around the small bulb. Typically, diodes have been used in many technologies such as radios, televisions and computers as an electrical component for conduction.

Connecting a diode to an electrical current excites the electrons within the diode, making them release photons, which we see as light. The color of the light is a direct result of the energy gap in the semiconductor of the diode. This means that LEDs produce a spectrum of colors easily and brightly while using very little electricity to do so.
