My mother 54 years old . She feels a backpain and she doesn’t want to drink medicine. She prefer to have therapy with infrared radiation promote in our city. I went to the therapy house to accompanied my mother. It was conduct by choyang medical instrument. In this therapy house, i saw the permission and legal from Indonesian Ministry of Health about this therapy instrumens. Personel in that therapy house inform that we can have infra red therapy daily for 40 minutes based on our condition.
There are 7 type of health therapy:
- Exercise Therapy , used to refunction – strengten and maitain movement back to normal or closed to normal. The purpose to endurance muscle strength and functional of muscle joint
- Heating Therapy. If complaint only in the skin, heating therapy using the Infra Red Radiation. Complaint in the muscle, heating therapy ysing the micro diathermy. Complaint in the deepest area such as skeleton, it used short wave diathermy. Type of therapy base on physician diagnosis.
- Electrical Stimulations Therapy. Stimulation using electrical wave to the muscle to reduce pain in the muscle
- Cold Therapy. It use to prevent chronic inflammation and reduce swollen. It should be monitored, especially if the acute phase had passed, the cold therapy could damage body tissues.
- Chest Physioherapy. Include in this therapy are nebulizer, clapping, vibration and postural drainage.
- Hydro Therapy or Aquatik Therapy. It common to treat human with Cerebral Palsy.
- Orthopedic dan Rheumathoid Arthritis. It used to solve muscle and bone disruption because fracture, post fracture, arthritis joints sprain, or dislocation
Technologies already developed Thermomechanical Massage Device (TMD) as Heating Therapy. TMD combines the principles of acupressure, moxibustion, and manipulation (Shiatsu of Japan, Chuna of Korea and chiropractic. The thermal acupressure bed also is a far infrared heating device.
Based on research, Far Infra red used as therapeutic modality as biogenetic radiation. The body experiences can penetrate up to 1.5 inches (almost 4 cm) beneath the skin to FIR wavelength with gentle radiant heat. The prolonged erythermal response due to FIR exposure has been proposed to be due to increased epidermal temperatures associated with it, but levels of FIR that do not produce any detectable skin heating can also have biological effects. The treatment was performed for 40 min every morning for 7 days
Based on research, person lie in thermomechanical massage device (TMD), for 20 minutes, twice a week, for a total of 8 weeks, may modulate immune function and may be beneficial in subjects with impaired immune function, such as aging individuals and HIV patients.
Specification of CY 700 below:
The classification of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) has three sub-divisions for the IR radiation is given in table 1
An alternative classification provided in ISO 20473 standard for the sub-division of the IR ranges is given in Table 2
TMD which use infra red wavelength in safe range of IR standard, are safe to be used
