Frequently asked Questions! - Ortholumm FAQ
1. What significance does the light have?
In addition to the supply of oxygen, water and nutrients u.a. Light is also one of the basic requirements for life and ultimately also for our health. The human organism has so-called chromophores for the absorption of light energy, which. et al for the production of homeostasis, i. of "cell balance in the organism" and in many cases important for the regeneration and restoration of health.
2. What is a photo biomodulation?
Photobiomodulation is the term used to describe the control of cellular processes with the help of light energy that is emitted via LED diodes, whereby in most cases exactly defined light regimes are used. The red and NIR (near-infrared) LED diodes emit the light in the broad band of the light spectrum (i.e., at wavelengths of 600-1000 nm). This spectral range seems to have the best effect and should not have any deleterious effect considering the limitation of the light regime. The technical term for light in this spectral range is also "PHOTOTHERAPEUTIC WINDOW". The light in this phototherapeutic window is absorbed by our tissues and cells, ultimately causing tissue reaction and systemic effects on the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems. Red and NIR light should u.a. Thus, for a "healthy balance" (homeostasis) of the life processes in our organism can be effectively used.
3. How can photobiomodulation contribute to better rehabilitation?
The so-called Fotobiomodulation should accelerate the regeneration and recovery of our body significantly. However, the ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 medical light therapy device can not replace a healthy lifestyle and conventional medical care (diagnosis and therapy) in the event of injury or illness, although in many cases it can be used effectively as an additional measure (after consultation with the attending physician) can. The light stimulation can influence regenerative processes and contribute to the renewal of damaged muscle, connective, cartilage and bone tissue.
4. What is the significance of the light frequency modulation?
With the medical light therapy device ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1, seven empirically determined so-called Nogier frequencies are used to support rehabilitation. These frequencies should also help, i.a. to establish a healthy, energetic balance according to the principles of acupressure and acupuncture (Chinese medicine) via meridians and acupuncture points. Further combinations of these so-called Nogier frequencies should be able to increase the desired analgesic, regenerative effect in many cases.
The so-called full frequency of 2.45 Hz is said to be effective in acute, subacute and chronic conditions in many cases.
Light of the wavelengths of 610-670 nm and 830-870 nm is said to be useful in musculoskeletal pain, e.g. Muscle and skeletal injuries as well as tendon and ligament injuries can help in many cases.
5. What are the effects of frequency-modulated light stimulation in treatment and rehabilitation facilities?
More modern lighting devices such as the ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 medical light therapy device for carrying out the so-called photobiomodulation are frequency-modulated for described applications. This means that in addition to the treatment using the seven basic frequencies described, it is possible to use preset programs where the different (fixed) frequencies are automatically combined with the recommended time intervals. These frequencies thus change automatically - depending on the program - and are optimally adjusted to the type of, e.g. for the program described, violation. The devices switch off automatically after completion of the respective program. The programs can effectively contribute to skin renewal, body and mind regeneration after strenuous physical and mental work, and recovery from mental and physical fatigue. Even after injuries and surgical interventions, an underpinning effect can be achieved.
6. How does light contribute to maintaining a healthy, beautiful and youthful appearance?
The light emitted by the ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 medical light therapy device penetrates deeply into the subcutaneous tissue, where the blood and lymphatic microcirculation is to be increased, and so on. to allow the removal of dammed liquid and so-called "poison and waste products".
Irradiation with the light stimulator can also be an effective part of the anti-cellulite program, which can be supplemented by the radiation, an anti-cellulite massage or lymphatic drainage and the skin on a better absorption of so-called. Anti-cellulite agents in Preparing ointments. The light energy can be effectively used on the described depth effect for the relaxation of muscles. The use of light stimuli can also stimulate the collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin, which in turn helps to increase the tension and elasticity of the skin.
By influencing messenger substances, such as so-called endorphins, enkephalins and so-called anti-stress hormones, the skin should have a rested, shiny and youthful appearance, by the so-called antioxidant effect, the cells should be protected from free radicals.
7. Why can the effects of photo biomodulation be significant for professional and recreational athletes?
The light emitted by the ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 medical light therapy device can lead to faster regeneration and relaxation in recreational and professional sports. This enhanced regenerative capacity after training or competition is to be achieved by improving blood flow and muscle energy supply - all of which can be used to effectively improve performance. The muscles can also be optimally prepared for the load, which increases their durability and functionality. The elasticity and mobility of the joints can also be increased effectively. Overall, the probability of injury should be reduced as well. After sporting stress photobiomodulation can thus contribute effectively to faster regeneration and relaxation.
8. Why is the red and NIR region of the light spectrum being used instead of just natural sunlight?
The light energy emitted by the medical light therapy device ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 is in the red spectrum. The main reason for using this light energy lies in the fact that the red blood pigment hemoglobin does not absorb this light and thus it can penetrate undisturbed, deep into the tissue. Light energy of precisely this spectral range thus appears not only to be highly effective but also to have an optimum penetration depth without described harmful effect.
9. Why do some LED diodes seemingly not glow in any program?
The medical light therapy device ORTHOLUMM ML5 / 1 has different programs, whereby with each program all (!) Diodes emit light, but our eye can not perceive the light of the NIR diodes. So you do not see all the light energy that is emitted during operation of the light stimulator. That is why it is even more important that you do not look directly into the diodes while the device is in operation!
