"The best heat applications for your well-being and health"


What is infrared

Translated, the prefix "infra", which comes from Latin, means "below". The word "infrared" thus makes it clear that it refers to a range of electromagnetic radiation that lies below the red end of the visible light spectrum. The infrared spectrum, which is invisible to us, covers the wavelength range from 780 nm to 1,000,000 nm (nanometres).

Because of its warming and soothing effect, infrared radiation is often referred to as "heat radiation".


How does Physiotherm infrared deep heat work?

The special lava sand ceramic tubes of the Physiotherm infrared cabins emit almost only infrared C, with a small proportion of approx. 3% infrared B.

First, the vessels in the skin expand in the irradiated back area. The heat is absorbed by the blood and lymphatic fluid and transported into the deeper layers of tissue.
The heat is then distributed from the spinal column area to the inside of the body via the circulation, so that the entire organism is gradually warmed through.

At a typical cabin temperature of approx. 35 °C, the body can easily release excess heat into the environment. The treatment therefore does not place any significant strain on the cardiovascular system.

This form of infrared deep heat promotes natural heat regulation and is perceived as very pleasant.
The body is therefore "warmed from the inside out".


Special features

Infrared radiation transfers heat to the skin without contact. Basically, it only transports the heat and therefore has no effect itself. The skin's heat defence mechanisms are least affected by this form of heat transfer.
It therefore has some advantages:
- Infrared radiation hinders the heat regulation of the skin the least.
- It works without contact (no pressure and no covering).
- It can be easily regulated and adapted to the heat absorption capacity of the skin.
What to keep in mind:
- The irradiation limits (80-100 mW / sq cm skin and 8-10 mW/sq cm eye) must be observed.
- The skin's own temperature must not rise too high - the maximum skin temperature of 43 °C must not be exceeded. 
   be exceeded, as otherwise local skin damage could occur. This limit value must be observed for all types 
   of heat applications.

Our own system SENSOcare

Human body
Heat technology Sensor


With the SENSOcare technology we developed, we are revolutionising the market. It is the first infrared technology that automatically and contact-free adjusts the infrared intensity to the needs of the body.

Every person processes heat differently. Above all, the skin's ability to absorb heat is affected by many factors and the shape of the day. That is why Physiotherm has developed SENSOcare®. Sensors measure the skin temperature of your back in a contactless manner every second during use. Algorithms based on findings from clinical studies independently adjust the radiator temperature and thus the infrared intensity and spectrum to the needs of the body on the basis of these measured values. The SENSOcare® safety technology thus permanently optimises the heat supply and can protect your skin from burns. The infrared limit values (eyes and skin) are undercut.

Health through infrared

With regular use, infrared can:
...strengthen the immune system
...increase circulation and improve metabolism
...relieve tension and alleviate back pain
...positively influence the treatment of skin diseases

A stay in the Physiotherm infrared cabin is equivalent to a light cardiovascular endurance training.

If one wants to achieve a well-tolerated warming of the body, a thermoneutral environment (air temperature between 27 and 37°C) is necessary. In other words, an initial situation in which no heat is initially supplied to the body; the body is in thermal equilibrium with its environment and the blood can flow unhindered into the body's interior. If you now heat a localised area of the skin (ideally the back) of no more than approx. 10 to 12 % of the skin surface, thermoneutral blood (from approx. 90 % of the skin surface) mixes with heated blood (from 10 to 12 % of the skin surface). The heat alarm system inside the body does not kick in, the influx of this amount of heat via the blood to the inside of the body is still allowed. The core body temperature then rises continuously and slowly from the beginning. Via a change in blood flow and blood distribution, the supplied heat is then gradually distributed from the inside to the outside. This results in a warming of the entire body (body core and body shell).
