Phototherapy Units, Infrared

Definition : Phototherapy units designed to irradiate patients with light in the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum (from 700 to 1,400 nm). These units typically consist of one or more lamps (e.g., conventional infrared lamps, light-emitting diodes) that are mounted in a stand-alone, mobile, or handheld structure. NIR phototherapy units apply radiation in an intensity and frequency range appropriate to the treatment to be performed. Some units include lamps specifically designed with a narrow-band spectrum for a particular application (e.g., 890 nm to treat neuropathy). NIR phototherapy units are used mainly to treat skin disorders, enhance wound healing, and provide pain relief. Dedicated units with pulsed lamps are also available.
