Our work habits and daily activities often leave us with annoying pains to deal with. They may not be of immediate concern and a bit of rest will help to alleviate such pain but in the long run, repeated occurrences of such episodes of pain may lead to chronic problems. It is therefore very essential to treat such joint pains, muscle pains and stiffness immediately. There are several prescription and over-the-counter drugs available to deal with such pain but long term dependence on drugs can result in side effects. This is where the Light Relief 90LR15LR01 Infrared Pain Relief Device proves to be a truly handy and effective addition to our daily pain relief regimen.
The Light Relief device is small and lightweight and uses the heating effect of infrared rays to reduce pain. Essentially it is a heat therapy device and is a good alternative to cumbersome heat pads or hot wax treatments. This handheld device features a main circuitry, batteries, control buttons and a graphic display that work together to provide an easy-to-use medical gadget. With 59 infrared and colored LEDs, the device allows localized heat treatment to affected areas. The amount of heat generated, i.e. the intensity of the infrared rays can be controlled using 4 preset modes which are ‘start, low, medium and high’. A visible blue button on the top of the device can be used to cycle through the preset modes.
The Light Relief 90LR15LR01 Device comes with a button that controls the emission of infrared rays (heat). The button’s primary function is to turn the device on and off as required. This lightweight device comes with an elastic strap for easy and safe handling.
Effectiveness – 4.5/5
The Light Relief 90LR15LR01 device is pretty effective in treating minor pains such as muscle pains and joint pains, stiffness etc. Concentrated and directed heat improves blood circulation in the area that is affected and helps the muscles to relax which in turn, helps to reduce pain. Some users have reported relief from chronic nerve pain because of this device after they unsuccessfully tried alternatives like acupuncture, steroids and oral medication. Light Relief can even help with arthritis pain.
Safety – 4/5
The Light Relief pain relief device is safe to use. However, people with very sensitive skin can accidentally get a burn due to high intensity heat if the device is set to ‘high’ preset mode. It is therefore very important that user slowly increase the intensity of the heat to understand their heat tolerance level. Because of this safety concern, the device loses some points.
Ease of Use – 5/5
It is extremely easy to use. Not only instructions are clear but the simple design allows users to start using the device intuitively. The elastic strap on top of the device keeps the device firm and steady in one hand during use.
Price – 5/5
The device is a bit pricey but compared to other similar devices in market, it is still within a comfortable price range. Given the fact that it is pretty effective and gives positive results, the asking price of the device is passable.
Overall Rating – 4.5/5
The Light Relief infrared device gets an overall score of 4.5 out of 5, making it one of the best available devices on the market, especially for this price.
