Photobiomodulation research has proven that photobiomdulation helps people Feel, Think, Look and Perform Better. The benefits of LED Light Therapy in a whole body system are often called ‘too good to be true’.
There are over 4,000 studies on LED Light Therapy, LLLT, now called Photobiomodulation therapy.
The ARRC LED is running clinical trials on our ATP system for Pain and Recovery, Athletic Performance and how emotional resiliance is affected by a whole body system (specifically PTSD for Verterans). Below we have categorized a photobiomodulation research topics by condition as a reference for your benefit. We recommend the NIH website for controlled, peer reviewed and published photobiomodulation studies to get what may be the best pure science. Manufacturer based studies are frequently skewed to the biases of the manufacturer and the products they sell.
Below are studies found on the NIH website linked to specific conditions affected by PBMt.
When you click the links below you will be taken to supporting research for that condition on the National Institute of Health website. The righthand sidebar on the NIH website shares similar studies for that condition. To go deeper into research on a specific condition you can either click onto similar studies or perform a search on the NIH site search bar at the top of the page. These are medical studies with terminology that can be difficult for most. If you are not familiar with medical terms, you might choose to read the Conclusion at the bottom of each page first.
If you have any questions on photobiomodulation, or would like to compare full body LED Light Therapy beds, please call the ARRC LED at 855.502.2772. In addition please take a moment to join the discussion by opting in to our community portal. This will give you access to videos, podcasts, future research and current feedback from researchers like Dr. Hamblin, Dr.’s that own the ATP system and a broad range of wellness, spa and recovery center owners world wide.

There have been a large number of both animal model and clinical studies that demonstrated highly beneficial LLLT effects on a variety of diseases, injuries, and has been widely used in both chronic and acute conditions (see Figure 7). LLLT may enhance neovascularisation, promote angiogenesis and increase collagen synthesis to promote healing of acute (Hopkins et al. 2004) and chronic wounds (Yu et al. 1997). LLLT provided acceleration of cutaneous wound healing in rats with a biphasic dose response favoring lower doses (Corazza et al. 2007). LLLT can also stimulate healing of deeper structures such as nerves (Gigo-Benato et al.2004), tendons (Fillipin et al. 2005), cartilage (Morrone et al. 2000), bones (Weberet al. 2006) and even internal organs (Shao et al. 2005). LLLT can reduce pain (Bjordal et al. 2006a), inflammation (Bjordal et al. 2006b) and swelling (Carati et al. 2003) caused by injuries, degenerative diseases or autoimmune diseases. Oron reported beneficial effect of LLLT on repair processes after injury or ischemia in skeletal and heart muscles in multiple animal models in vivo (Ad and Oron 2001; Oron et al. 2001a; Oron et al. 2001b; Yaakobi et al. 2001). LLLT has been used to mitigate damage after strokes (in both animals (Lapchak et al. 2008) and humans (Lampl et al. 2007)), after traumatic brain injury (Oron et al. 2007) and after spinal cord injury (Wu et al. 2009).
Beneficial tissue effects of LLLT can include almost all the tissues and organs of the body.
