While most lamps use a common infrared bulb, the specially engineered TDP CQ-27 therapeutic heat lamp features a “black body” emission heating plate which is coated with a proprietary mineral formulation consisting of 31 elements.
When activated by a built-in electric heating element, this mineral plate emits a special band of far infrared electro-magnetic energy which penetrates deep into the human body. The human body (cells) has a higher absorbtion efficiency for far infrared energy than near infrared.
The emission head can be positioned as low as 12″ (for treating feet) to 60″. Depending on the treated condition, repeated treatments of 20 to 40 minutes are recommended.
