Full body light therapy
Body Boost Bed in Sports Medicine represent Full body light therapy application of Light-emitting diode (LED) PBM therapy to reduce muscle damage, pain, and atrophy, as well as to increase muscle mass, recovery, and athletic performance in sports medicine and rehabilitation programs. Body Boost Bed improves muscular performance and accelerates recovery mainly when applied before exercise.
According to the “Historical timeline of phototherapy” mentioned in the Handbook of Photomedicine, ﬁrst use of light therapy for sports injuries by Physiotherapists was at the Year 1983. This fact tells us that this form of therapy is not a novelty in the world of sports medicine.
Many years of research and application have enabled scientist to study and explain mechanism of the action of Full body light therapy on the human body exposed to sporting efforts and injuries.
The success of scientific research was followed by the development of new and more modern devices that enabled more efficient and easier application of Red light therapy body treatment of sports injuries and difficulties caused by extreme efforts during sports competition and training.
Body Boost Bed, medically approved full body light therapy device, is extremely well designed for treatment of athletes in an efficient, comfortable, and safe way.
Therapy provided by Body Boost Bed, in the form of light-emitting diode therapy, is applied over human skeletal muscles before or after bouts of exercises in order to:
> Accelerate muscle recovery,
> Protect against muscle damage induced by exercise, and
> Improve performance, such as increasing muscle strength and fatigue resistance
With Red light therapy body treatments Physiotherapists and Sports Medicine Specialists can treat a wide variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain. The benefits of full body PBM therapy are that it reduces the discomfort of pain and inflammation while promoting blood flow and the body’s own tissue repair mechanisms.
These effects are also valuable in rehabilitation processes that involve exercise programs to recover from muscle lesions and can mitigate the adverse effects of orthopaedic surgical procedures, such as muscle weakness and atrophy, and accelerate the return to athletic sports or functional activity.
Regarding sports medicine, athletes and sportsmen will be benefited with a fast muscle recovery, a better gain in muscle mass, and improvement of muscle performance, without the use of any forbidden performance-enhancing drugs.
