Restoration of motion to joints.Improved muscle performance, muscular and skeletal pain decreased, post exercise soreness and improved circulation.
long term benefits
Body Boost Bed, medically approved full body (PMB) light therapy device is designed for treatment of athletes in an efficient, comfortable, and safe way. Therapy is used before and/or after 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 Body Boost Bed light therapy device Physiotherapists and Sports Medicine Specialists can treat a wide variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain. The benefits of light therapy are that they reduce 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.
Mechanisms of action are based on the light absorption by chromophores in the cells, especially by cytochrome C oxidase (CCO) inside the mitochondria, triggering improvements in muscle recovery and performance. The absorption of the light (from LEDs) by CCO promotes modulations in cell metabolism altering the energetic state of the cells via increased mitochondrial membrane potential and increased synthesis of ATP and cyclic adenosine monophosphate, which in turn possibly modulate the synthesis rate of DNA and RNA via mitochondrial retrograde signalling. The effects of light therapy on RNA synthesis in conjunction with the greater increase in muscle volume and performance, combined with reduction of muscle damage and delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) strongly suggest that several signalling pathways involved in cell proliferation and protein synthesis, energy metabolism, cytoprotection, inflammation, and oxidative stress were modulated by light therapy resulting in macroscopic and functional benefits for human skeletal muscles.
