TheraBulb® Introduces Industry First 300 Watt Near Infrared Incandescent Bulb

LEESBURG, Va.  February 18, 2020:  TheraBulb® is setting the standard once again with its newest product release: a 300W incandescent bulb that outperforms the competition in near infrared and red light output as well as durability. Powerful and durable, the Near Infrared Bulb - 300 Watt has earned the same safety and purity marks that have made consumers trust the TheraBulb® brand.

The TheraBulb® 300W is a game-changer for consumers using 150W and 250W infrared bulbs. Rather than needing to purchase a second bulb when more coverage or deeper tissue penetration is needed, now they can get that same output from a single bulb. When compared with the 150W bulb, TheraBulb® is offering twice the power at the same price! For those who want more infrared and red light than 250 watt bulbs the TheraBulb® 300W delivers that extra boost. Best of all, the 300W bulb is still compatible with clamp lamps available on Amazon and hardware stores.

Is Bigger Always Better?

In the case of infrared light therapy, the answer is often “yes”. Studies show that the results of such therapy are often dependent on how deeply the light can penetrate into the treatment area.[1,2] As bulbs are moved closer to the skin to gain better penetration, their coverage area becomes smaller, like walking toward a wall with a flashlight in your hand.

In such cases, the user is forced to compromise or purchase additional bulbs and lamps. The new TheraBulb® Near Infrared-Bulb - 300 Watt helps to resolve such issues by providing more power output in a single, affordable unit with a tungsten filament designed specifically to maximize near infrared and red light emissions and 20% thicker glass to resist breakage An impressive 75% of the TheraBulb® 300W total output registered in the infrared range during lab tests, nearly double the percentage of previous TheraBulb® designs. The bulbs peak output, at 700nm, made up nearly a quarter of the total energy output. The bulb’s red light scores were equally robust, with the 300W version delivering 1.3 times the red light concentration of competing products.

Why Infrared Light Therapy?

Physicians, researchers, and end consumers are using infrared therapy to treat a wide range of symptoms. Numerous studies have been conducted to test the efficacy of near-infrared light in treating joint pain, joint inflammation, muscle pain, spine injuries, nerve pain, and sports injuries.

Many TheraBulb® customers use their products to treat chronic or acute pain, such as non-specific lower back pain or muscle sprains. Others use their TheraBulb® infrared bulbs and lamps to treat arthritis, skin conditions, increase collagen production and promote wound healing, or to help reverse the visible effects of UV skin damage.[1]

Near-infrared light therapy uses precise wavelengths of light that are delivered to injury sites to speed cellular regeneration and improve the healing process. Researchers have found that infrared light improves the circulation of blood in the body, improving the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the cells, stimulating the regeneration and repair of injured tissues, and reducing pain and inflammation.[2,3]

TheraBulb Receives Lab Certification for Near Infrared Bulbs

LEESBURG, Va.  December 05, 2018:  TheraBulb, leading manufacturer of incandescent bulbs with concentrated healing wavelength output, announced an industry first today: independent lab tests verifying the performance of its bulbs.

Upon release of the test results, TheraBulb CEO Tom Watson said “I founded TheraBulb when a friend needed near-infrared bulbs and couldn’t find any that were proven to emit near infrared in the healing wavelengths. Our team designed a bulb to meet these specific requirements and achieved CE and RoHS toxin-free certifications. Now we’ve had the actual output of our bulbs tested by an independent, ISO 17025-certified lab. This enables consumers and health professionals to know that the bulb is emitting infrared and in what concentrations. TheraBulb has created the only bulb that offers all of these assurances. We are pleased to make the only lab-certified infrared bulbs on the market.”

Laboratory tests determined that the majority of the energy emitted by the bulbs was in the red and near infrared healing wavelength spectrum, 600 nm – 900 nm. The second test measured the amount of energy available to the user at given distances from the bulb.

Dr. Todd Lizon, B.P.H.E., D.C. is the CEO of NIR Sauna and a practicing Chiropractor. He uses visible light and near infrared energy therapy of all types with clients and sees TheraBulb’s verified output data as extremely useful in creating therapeutic regimens. “I firmly believe in the benefits of the entire red and near infrared light spectrum. Only with TheraBulb can I truly calculate the dosage customers and clients are getting. For this reason, I exclusively use TheraBulb in my portable NIR Saunas.”

CEO Tom Watson closed with advice for consumers: “Make sure that you’re getting what you pay for. Look for an infrared bulb that offers objective data on the amount of infrared it puts out. TheraBulb is safe, proven, and reliable.”
