How to recognise a good FIR device

How to recognise a good FIR device

The health and wellbeing benefits of infrared radiation, especially far infrared rays, are increasingly acknowledged, but it is important to be aware that various devices greatly differ from each other, despite technology having the same name.

A pioneer in the field for almost 15 years, Iyashi Dôme doesn’t follow a trend, never has done and never will do. Iyashi Dôme initiated a trend and has been spearheading it ever since: the “Japanese sauna”.

Main things to know:

  1. Far infrareds heat the body (objects, people included) but not the air, which holds very little heat.
    When you are at an altitude of 2,500 metres in wintertime, when the sun is shining and there is no wind, you can feel very hot and be wearing just a t-shirt, even though the temperature is in fact only 3 degrees Celsius.
    Temperature has therefore nothing to do with the settings of a device that emits far infrareds. As a reminder: FIR is measured in micrometres (µm) or nanometres (nm).
  2. The shape of our Dômes was designed to adapt to our morphology,as infrared radiation is diffused and distributed, not targeted like a laser. The aim is therefore to provide a shape that surrounds your body when lying down.
    Because people (men / women) are different from one another, we have chosen the half-cylinder shape to provide optimal treatment effectiveness for each and every morphology!
  3. Stay clear of marketing or communication traps, read each manufacturer’s studies conducted with THEIR OWN DEVICE and ask for measured results not based on perception.
    Most of the time, protocols aren’t clearly indicated (time, frequency of sessions and treatment duration…).
    Work on the basis that our measured results, featured in medical publications, were obtained with sessions lasting 25 to 30 minutes in a course of treatment that included 8 sessions over a one-month period.
  4. And last but certainly not least: User SAFETY! Ask for CE standards with documents drawn up by certified, independent laboratories!
    NB: in Europe, manufacturers are allowed to self-certify their device. This isn’t necessarily the best guarantee for an operator or user…
