Understanding Photobiomodulation (PBMt) &
Whole Body LED Light Therapy Bed Design
Mitochondria, aging & PBM.
Mitochondria are the motors in the body that produce ATP. ATP is the fuel that cells use to thrive. A current theory on aging suggests that as we age, the mitochondria become damaged by free radicals and toxicity. Photobiomodulation, has been shown in research to slow, halt and even reverse Mitochondrial Dysfunction and improve production of ATP.
A whole body LED Light Therapy Bed delivers photons of different wavelengths throughout the body. The action of improving mitochondrial function improves cellular energy and slows cell death. Improving cellular health and longevity is considered a key factor in aging. The benefits cascade to create improvements in cognition, wellness, performance and aesthetics. Read more.

Light is an essential supplement.
Over 4000 studies suggest that light heals. Like a multivitamin, full body LED light therapy beds stimulates key cellular reactions that improve the health, energy and function of cells. These studies suggest the benefits of light as a supplement include reduced inflammation, detoxification of waste and free radicals, improved circulation, and improved energy.
An LED Light Therapy Bed illuminates the entire body with photons that trigger cellular reactions which may cascade down into and affect the tissues, organs and systems. You just get better. Read more.
Healthy people & PBM.
Athletes who break their own personal best records after supplementing with a full body LED light therapy bed have performance as a measurable benchmark. Professional sports franchises are building recovery centers that utilize full body photobiomodulation beds to help their athletes prevent mechanical injuries of competition (preconditioning), speed recovery after competition and improve peak performance in the areas of strength, speed and endurance during competition.
People suffering from pain or illness have the reduction of pain or illness as a benchmark. In both cases, LED light therapy is triggering cellular changes that cascade down into and change the tissues organs and systems which improves how their bodies are performing. These foundational changes in the cells cascade down into and according to Dr Hamblin benefit nearly every tissue, organ and system in the body. You just get better.
Healthy people may not have measurable or noticeable pain or illness, but time has an innevitable effect of breaking down the body. Toxins in our food, air and water stress the cells and systems. Mental and emotional stress, changes the cells. LED Light Therapy may help healthy people Feel, Think, Look and Perform Better… Longer. Read more.
The ARRC LED ATP full body LED Light Therapy bed has been evaluated and chosen by multiple NFL teams and every branch of the military.

LED or Laser?
Studies have shown that LASERS and LED’s can have very similar effects depending on the intensity.
Low Level Lasers may prove more effective in targeting inside of a joint while a full body light therapy bed may better precondtion the entire body, helping it respond better to localized treatments with lasers. Lasers are much more effective for invasive procedures designed to cut or burn while LED’s may prove better for systemic stimulation of health. LED’s are non-invasive but researchers suggest that the right dose can have similar benefits without invasive injuries.
Think of an LED Light Therapybed as having broad systemic benefits, while the laser is better at pinpointing pain and injuries. Together Lasers and LED light therapy beds are a powerful combination. Read More.
Targeting, Dose & Multiple Wavelengths.
Like a multivitamin supplement, multiple LED Light Therapy bed wavelengths may trigger different reactions in the cells. As the science of photobiomodulation research improves we believe that wavelengths, pulse and dose will become more specialized.
A Spa owner interested in skincare might be better suited with a mid energy system. A doctor stimulating deeper healing might find more power is better due to the increased penetration. A business owner wants both effectiveness and shorter treatment times to ROI their investment. A professional athlete might find that Red/NIR is the best choice while someone with skin issues will benefit from adding green.
The ATP system is an extraordinarily high irradiance LED light therapy bed with multiple wavelengths delivering multiple healing signatures in their most optimal power per wavelength. To the left is the first lighting of the ATP prototype.
Understanding the effects of each wavelength, pulse and dose can help system designers target treatment outcomes for certain populations. In 2019 for example, researchers have begun studying the effects of the Green’s and Blues because the benefits suggest a different pathway is activated than previously thought. Read more.

Irradiance, is the intensity of light as measured ‘on the skin’ in mw/cm2 units of power. Distance as measured from the LED to the skin has a profound effect on irradiance. Dose in LED Light Therapy is a measure of irradiance x time and called a Joule. Research suggests that 50 Joules per cm2 of energy may be peak dose. Delivering more energy or too frequently may prove to be less effective for users.
83.9mw/cm2 x 60 seconds = 5.034 Joules/cm2.
ATP LED Light Therapy Bed delivers apprx 50 Joules/cm2 in 10 minutes
According to Dr. Hamblin, the per wavelength intensity or irradiance is optimal at 30 – 60 mw/cm2 with a cumulative dose under 100 mw/cm2. Different people will have different levels of sensitivities to light. ARRC LED’s ATP and ATP RF systems meet Dr. Hamblin’s recommended optimal dosing standard both cumulatively and per wavelength. The lights simply cannot get much more powerful without slowing the benefit curve through overdosing. ATP RF creates incredible dose and pulse variants that take what are already optimized lighting wavelengths and intensities into higher and higher levels of efficacy.
Whole Body LED Light Therapy Bed
Whole Body LED Light Therapy beds are about luxury, precision and efficacy.
A photobiomodulation bed allows for the correct dose, without overstimulation (damage) in the shortest time frame possible. Optimized intensities mean program times are reduced and comfort is increased. Regulation of distance to the LED source in a bed creates the precise distance required to optimize dose. This improves efficacy by maximizing penetration without overstimulating. The ARRC LED ATP system is optimized for 10 minutes or shorter treatment times in a continuous current format and 12 – 15 minutes or shorter utilizing the pulse.
The objective of whole body photobiomodulation beds or full body LED light therapy is to create systemic benefits of detoxification, improved circulation and improved energy throughout the entire body.
Changing the health of the cells changes the health of the entire body. This is a systemic rejuvenation and rebalancing of the entire body. You just bet better.
Extended use of LED Light Therapy can create profound changes in the human body. Whole body LED Light Therapy Beds are about healthier living. Pain relief and performance benefits can be immediate, but what we really want is to live healthier, happier… longer. Read more.

Understanding the Physics of LED Light Therapy
Different light wavelengths and intensities can create different outcomes in the body. If we know the wavelength and intensity, then we should be able to direct the system to create predictable reactions in the body. In this section we offer a high level explanation of the physics of light as applied to our systems. Read more.
