The Benefits of Red Light Therapy For Pain And Inflammation

If you’ve read our blog for a while, you’ll probably be fairly clued up when it comes to red light therapy, and how it works. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of misinformation out there, so we’ll do our best to clear things up.


In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the technical side of our at-home red light therapy device and explain what you need to know to make sure you’re getting the most out of your treatments.


We’ll also cover some of the most common questions people have about the tech side of the Move+, and offer some tips on how to use it to its full potential.


So, whether you’re new to red light therapy or just want to be sure you’re getting the most out of your treatments, read on!


Spoiler Alert: This blog is going to get a little technical, so if you’re not interested in all the nitty-gritty details, we suggest you have a read of our Ultimate Guide To Red Light Therapy For Pain Relief instead!



What Are The Technical Specifications Of The Move+?


The Move+ uses low-angle emission LEDs and Infrared (IR) lasers to penetrate joint tissue, reducing pain and inflammation and improving long-term recovery for chronic and acute conditions.


Each module has 8 x deep red (650nm) LEDs and 10 x Infrared (808nm) laser diodes


This means you get the benefits of both wavelengths – the LEDs for helping to stimulate collagen production, improve circulation, and treat surface-level inflammation, and the laser diodes for deeper tissue healing.

LEDs vs. Laser Diodes


So now you know the benefits of LEDs and laser diodes – which one is better?


Well, if you read our blog on LED vs. Laser: Red Light Therapy for Pain Relief, you’ll know that the answer is… it depends!


Luckily for you, you don’t have to choose between the two, because as we mentioned before, the Move+ uses both!


What Makes The Move+ Different From Other At-Home Red Light Therapy Devices?


In comparison with conventional LED options, the Move+ has medical-grade laser technology that penetrates deeper into the joint


Compared to lasers, LEDs emit a much broader spectrum, so they are less effective at reaching deeper tissues.


Laser therapy at the correct dosage (like the Move+ provides) can help reduce the pain and inflammation and stop the joint degradation, giving you improved functionality for years to come.


What Is The Optical Power Of The Move+ (At The Skin)?


At the surface of the skin, the optical power of a given light source is measured in watts/meter.


From an optical level at the skin, it’s about 22.5mW peak emission power of 808nm IR laser per emission area and 45mW per module, in combination with 112.5mW peak emission power of low angle 650nm Deep Red LED per emission area and (225mW per module).  This means that per module (2 emissions areas per module) Move+ has about 270mW of combined peak optical power.


The skin level measurements only tell part of the story for dosing tissue as the angle of emission, collimation, wavelength, pulse rate, and other optical characteristics impact the light distribution. 

This is why our science and medical team have spent thousands of hours building a comprehensive light distribution model and our ongoing real-world testing has validated this model and provided innovative insight into our dosing model.


Is The Move+ Wireless?


Yes, the Move+ is wireless, meaning you can use it at home, at the gym, or on the go!


You don’t have to worry about running out of power, either…Each light module lasts for more than four hours of continuous use (or 24 x 10-minute sessions)!


Once the batteries are completely empty, you can recharge them in 4-5 hours using the magnetic charging dock.


Is The Move+ FDA Registered?


We are now OFFICIALLY FDA REGISTERED! That’s right, we have gone through all of the necessary hoops and hurdles to earn that little badge of honor.


For those of you who don’t know, the FDA is the US Food and Drug Administration. They are responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety of food, drugs, and cosmetics. 


The FDA registration is just another way we are working hard to make sure that you are getting the best possible product from us


We’ve always strived to provide top-notch products and service to our customers, and this registration is just further proof of that commitment!

Is The Move+ Safe Around Your Eyes?


We get a lot of questions about our Move+ and whether or not it’s safe to use around the eyes. 


The simple answer is: it’s not dangerous, but we wouldn’t necessarily recommend it


Infrared light is invisible to human sight, and although our Move+ emits a relatively low level of infrared light, we’d still suggest holding off on eye treatments unless you have a protocol from a doctor for this! 


Can You Use The Move+ Over Clothes?


The simple answer is yes, you can use the Move+ over clothes, but it’s more efficient and impactful to use it directly on your skin. 


This is because whilst the laser will penetrate your clothing, the dosage will not be exact, and as we’ve spoken about before, the dosage is extremely important when it comes to red light therapy.


Therefore, if you want to get the most out of your Move+, it is best to use it directly on your skin


It’s also worth noting that the scientific studies that have examined the benefits of red light therapy have all been conducted with direct skin contact, so that is the method that we recommend.
