What is the patented "Thermo panel"?
Our unique "Thermo panel" is produced using a patented process for combining Bio-ceramic compounds and Chitosan, this is then processed into nano particles and fused into the fibres used to produce the "Thermo Panel".
This fusing process traps the nano particles of Bio-Chitosan into the heart of the fibres and they can not be displaced by washing or wear.
It is when the stategically placed "Thermo panel" is warmed by the bodys natural heat, that Bio-Chitosan reacts and begins to emit FAR Infrared rays which are so beneficial to the bodys natural healing processes .
What is Bio-Chitosan?
Bio-Chitosan is a combination of Chitosan and a Bio-Ceramic compound that is extracted from 20 different types of natural minerals mined in remote mountain regions, these minerals have accumulated natural energy from the sun over millions of years.When stimulated by the bodies natural heat the Bio-Ceramics emit FAR infrared rays.
What is Chitosan?
Chitosan is extracted from the exoskeletons of deep-sea crabs and other crustaceans. We select our Chitosan from deep-sea crabs because of its consistent quality and purity. Chitosan is one of 19th centuries outstanding bio-technological discoveries and was discovered by the eminent French scientist H.Braconnot in 1811 and has roughly two hundred years of usage history.
Chitosan fibres differ from others in that they possess a positive Ionic charge and antiseptic properties that can protect our skin from irritation and infection.
What are Far infrared Rays?
Far infrared ray is part of the sunlight spectrum that is invisible to the human eye.
The complete spectrum of sunlight consists of visible and invisible rays.
The visible rays are red, orange,yellow, green, indigo, blue, and violet in color.
The invisible rays are Ultra Violet, X-rays, Gamma, Cosmic, Microwave, Long Wave, Electrical Wave, and Infrared.
Electromagnetic waves between visible light and the microwave are called infrared waves.
The wavelength of infrared waves range from 0.76 micron to 1,000 microns. This range is further subdivided into the ranges of Near, Medium, and Far-Infrared Rays with following wavelength: 0.76 to 1.5microns; 1.5 to 4 microns; and 4 to 1,000 microns respectively.
Far infrared waves are thermal. In other words, we experience this type of infrared radiation every day in the form of heat. Unlike ultraviolet light, FIR is harmless to the body.
How Can A Fibre Emit Far Infrared Ray?
How can the bio-ceramic emit far infrared?
Actually, the principle is very simple.
It is a well-known fact that human body constantly emits thermo energy. When the bio-ceramic is stimulated by the thermo energy of human body, it converts it into the far infrared rays and reflects it back into the human body up to a depth of approximately 4.00 cm. So the far infrared ray emitted by the far infrared fiber is really powered by our own body and there are no known side effects.
What do FAR infrared Rays do?
The FIRs whose wavelength falls between 4 to 50 microns are also commonly called Biogenetic rays. Biogenetic rays have been shown to promote the healing and growth of living cells especially in plants, animals and human beings. All of the FIR products we make emit FIR with wavelength concentrated between 8 to 15 microns
How can FIR heal human body?
One of the reasons that FIR has beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is because FIR can deeply penetrate skin and underlying tissues up to a depth of 4.00 cm.
When FIR penetrates the skin, they come into contact with protein, collagen and fats. By stimulating micro-vibrations, FIR can elevate tissue temperatures, the human body then can be revitalized because of the improved micro circulation. FIR also has the ability to remove toxins in the body, which are often at the core of many health problems. The build up of toxins in a health body could block the normal blood circulation and impair the cellular energy. When FIR waves are applied, the water molecules that encapsulate the toxins get heated up, and start to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water. As the breakdown of the water molecules occurs, encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released and the body becomes rejuvenated.
FIR also improves human health through following functions:
- Rejuvenates the skin and muscle tone.
- Increases oxygen in the blood cell
- Promotes regeneration and fast healing
- Improves the autonomic functions of the nervous system
- Reduces fatty acids in the tissues
- Increase metabolism between blood and tissue.
Why not use a hot water bottle?
Far infared garments are easy to wear and comfortable to the user, they do not need to be recharged or refilled as other heating products do. Garments also have the added benefits of applying light compression which aids in reduction of swelling, they are also made of a 4 way stretch material so unlike other support garments they don't interfere with movement of the joint or limb.
What pain conditions are FIR products effective for?
FIR products have been shown to have therapeutic effect to many chronic healthy symptoms.
Enumerating all of them here might be difficult. However, following list contains some of the symptoms that have been shown to respond very well to FIR products :
- Muscle pain and spasm
- Shoulder or joint stiffness
- Raynaud’s syndrome
- Sports injuries
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Many other painful conditions initiated by the ageing process and general wear and tear on our bodies.
What is microcirculation?
Microcirculation refers to the flow of blood through the vascular network lying between the arterioles and venules; includes capillaries, metarterioles and arteriovenous anastomoses. The mainfunction of microcirculation is carry oxygen and nutrition matter and ship out carbon dioxide, lactic acid and metabolic production.
How long does it take to feel the effects?
Time taken to feel the effect varies depends on the symptom one has, the products one uses and personal health condition.
One may start feeling the pain relieving impacts of a knee band immediately, while others wearing our garments may take several weeks to notice the profound whole body results.
Is it possible that one may not feel anything using these products? Depends on the individual’s health needs, some time, the effects of our products are more subtle. If you do not feel anything by using our FIR products do not be concerned some people are less sensitive than others or your body may be healthier than others. In such case, using FIR support garments will provide the benefits of long term preventative therapy.
How often can I use FIR products?
Our FIR health products can be conveniently used as often as you like, and as long as you like. Our products are very comfortable to wear and many people use them for 8 - 10 hours a day or more, others wear them just at night, the decision is yours and is dependant on your level of pain and the resulting relief provided by your FIR support garment.
Are there any side effects of FIR products?
There are no side-effects from using FIR products. As the body gets rid of old toxins in the body, some individuals with very high sensitivety may experience some initial detoxification symptoms such as slightly looser bowel movements and slightly more frequent urination. This is usually a good sign that healing effects of the FIR garment is working and that the improved circulation is cleansing toxins from your system and may be expected.
If you continue experiencing prolonged symptoms, discontinue using the product and contact your physician, but this is not expected.
Are there any Reasons or Conditions when i shouldn't use FIR products?
We do not reccomend the use of FIR products for people with...
- Cardiovascular instability
- Clotting disorders e.g. haemophillia
- Acute flare of inflammatory arthritis or inflammatory condition
- Septic arthritis/local infection
- Pregnancy - not over the foetus/uterus
What are your FIR products made from?
Our FIR products are made from man-made fibers impregnated with nano-particles of bio-ceramic powder and Chitosan. The Nano particles of Bio-Chitosan are added to the man made fibres while it is in the molten state and is therefore LOCKED into the actual fibres All of our FIR products are made from fibres with this advanced technology.
What is the “bio-ceramics”?
The bio-ceramics used in the FIR production are a special combination of 20 different lead free stones and minerals (like Silica Oxide (SiO2) mined from remote un-polluted mountain areas which when stimulated by the bodies natural temperature emit FAR infra red rays.
What is the FIR wavelength ?
The recommended length of the Far Infrared wave length is 8-15 Microns. This is the wave length that can easily be absorbed by the body.
Are FIR product washable?
Yes, FIR health products are washable: Hand wash or gentle cycle in cold water. A little PH neutral detergent or mild soap can be used. Naturaly dry at room temperature.
Avoid heat and tumble drying, do not dry clean, iron or bleach, the product can be dried in sunshine.
