Near infrared (nIR)
Near infrared (nIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength and it penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than the other two. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm without extreme heat or light, nIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue.
Near IR heaters that use high-wattage halogen bulbs to produce extremely high temperatures are not comfortable or beneficial. In order to make nIR heat safe for saunas, we used NASA research to develop an LED array that provides NIR at a singular wavelength with minimal variability. Research from Dr. Harry Whelan has shown that it takes a specific joule of nIR energy to deliver the wavelength needed to penetrate human tissue. And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. MPulse saunas got their name because the LED pulsates for optimal benefits. http://www.mcw.edu/Neurology/Faculty/Harry-Whelan-MD.htm
Mid Infrared (mIR)
Mid Infrared (mIR) is a longer wavelength and can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs. mIR helps to expand blood vessels and increases circulation allowing more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body resulting in reduced pain and faster healing process.

Far Infrared (fIR)
The longest wavelength Far Infrared (fIR) penetrates the body the deepest at the cellular level where toxins are stored. Studies have shown that fIR raise core body temperature stimulating the sweat glands resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat. Furthermore, sweating is part of the body’s thermoregulatory process that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate causing the body to burn calories.
To achieve any health benefits from a sauna it has to be above 90% effective at delivering that wavelength. Otherwise, you’re just getting a “hot experience” that will not heating up your body’s core temperature. Without heating up your body’s core temperature, you are doing very little for yourself health wise.
The document by Bruker Analytical proves the emissivity of Sunlighten’s proprietary heaters from a U.S. engineering firm. http://www.sunlighten.com/pdfs/solocarbon-custom-spectrum-efficiency.pdf
Proof of safety of materials used for the heaters – again the company should be able to produce this (see Chemical Dynamics attached for Sunlighten – in link above on page 2)
Lowest EMF in the industry. Ours is basically “non-existent” due to our EMF cancelling technology. Therefore, we have the most effective far infrared & lowest EMF on the market. There is no such thing as zero EMF. It’s a marketing ploy. Every electrical device emits EMF. We are just able to reduce it to the lowest levels in the industry possible. http://www.sunlighten.com/emf.html
The construction method is different. We provide a patented magne-seal technology process. This magne-seal process provides for ease of assembly. Also, since wood is a living thing, when it heats and cools it expands and contracts. The magne-seal allows for the wood to expand and contract without directly impacting the integrity of the wood. Meaning, you will not have any warping or cracking of the wood as you would with a sauna assembled with brackets, locks, bolts, or clamps.
