Philips infrared lamps for healthcare and bodycare applications are designed for treating deep-seated muscular ailments and sports injuries. These incandescent reflector lamps are an excellent solution to provide localized heat treatment to relieve muscular pain. They can also be used to treat rheumatic ailments. This form of heat therapy has also been shown to speed the healing of different kinds of injuries such as sports injuries and non-infected wounds, in many cases providing rapid and effective pain relief. The benefits of this form of heat therapy are based on locally enhanced blood circulation in the skin caused by vasodilatory response. This results in an increased transport rate of metabolytes and other essential biochemical compounds. Benefits are also gained by deeper penetration of heat, which provides a gentle, pleasant warming effect.
