Michael has spent the better half of May looking after his 84-year-old mother who had a complete knee replacement.
He dragged the hydrosun infrared A lamp all the way to Coffs Harbour to treat his mum.
His is happy to report that she was walking for the first time on her new knee the same day of the surgery!
She was home five days later and received twice-daily infrared therapy to reduce the swelling and extensive post surgery bruising.
After the dressing was removed, infrared light therapy was applied directly to the 20 cm long surgical wound.
The healing has been exceptional! Her doctors, nurses and physiotherapists are extremely impressed.
The healing rays of sunlight are mainly due to infrared A. Unlike UV light, infrared A does not damage the skin. The hermetically sealed water filter in the Hydrosun 750 lamp filters out all far-infrared B and C waves and harmful UV rays.
This second generation infrared light therapy is known as water-filtered infrared A or wIRA - and is unique to the German-engineered range of Hydrosun lamps.
wIRA light therapy is also very effective for warts, wounds, burns, skin care, pain and healing post-surgery, arthritis, neuralgia, back pain, rheumatism, sports injuries, frozen shoulder, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, strains and sprains and even skin cancers (provided by Dr Ian Hoyle at Mountain Retreat Medical Centre in South Hobart).
