The Red Recover ankle pad allows you to enjoy the benefits of red light therapy on both high and low ankles. It's easy to use - simply wrap it around your ankle and secure it comfortably using the velcro tab. View the ankle wrap instructional video below.
To activate the device, press the power button.
The lights will turn on, indicating that your 15 minute session has begun.
At the end of the session, you'll hear three audible beeps, and the controller will automatically turn off.
This signals that your session is complete and you can remove the device.
Note: You will not see the infrared lights as they are not visible with the naked eye. Our eyes only allow us to see up to 700 nm of light wavelengths, which is why you can see the red light (680 nm).
Pro tip: Your camera can see infrared light wavelengths from 700 nm to 900 nm. You can use your phones camera like the image below to make sure your device is properly working.
Recommended usage: once a day therapeutically and 3 times a week for overall health maintenance or as a prophylactic measure.
If you are experiencing more pronounced symptoms, Red Recover may be used up to 3 times a day with at least three hours between sessions.
Please read the instruction manual provided with your device. For additional support or if you have any questions please contact us.
How does Red Recover and red light therapy work?
Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level red and near-infrared light to stimulate healing in the body. When the light is absorbed by the cells in the body, it triggers a series of events that can lead to improved health and well-being.
Here's a simple breakdown of how red light therapy works:
The light is absorbed by the cells in the body: When the red and near-infrared light is absorbed by the cells in the body, it triggers a series of events at the cellular level.
The light energy is converted into cellular energy: The absorbed light energy is converted into cellular energy, which can stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy currency of the cell.
The production of ATP increases: The increased production of ATP leads to improved cellular function and increased healing.
The cells in the body are repaired and regenerated: The improved cellular function leads to the repair and regeneration of cells in the body, which can lead to a wide range of potential health benefits.
Overall, red light therapy is a safe and effective treatment with a wide range of potential health benefits.
