SmartSun Therapy SST28 – The Perfect Design

Wednesday, December 13th, 2023

Producing the most effective red and near-infrared light therapy system requires careful engineering that balances the amount of energy emitted from each diode, the total amount of energy emitted from the device, and the distance between the light source and the body. SmartSun Therapy has been engineered with these factors in mind, making the SST28 the only device on the market today maximizing these efficiencies.

Some red light therapy devices use low-pressure lamps because they are inexpensive but there are many drawbacks. Low-pressure lamps, by design, diffuse the light 360 degrees so only a small fraction of the light reaches the skin. This low-output lamp degrades quickly with distance making the total output just a small fraction of the output of an LED. The result is a less potent lamp at a greater distance from the skin that provides minimal results as compared to the SST28.

Through careful engineering, the SmartSun Therapy SST28 is designed to maximize the increased efficiency of LED light technology by taking advantage of a number of key factors. Here are just a few of the SST28 design advantages:

The SST28 LED lights deliver very specific therapeutic wavelengths of red light at 635 nanometers and near-infrared light at 850 nanometers. These very specific wavelengths have been determined to deliver the best results for targeted red and near-infrared light therapy.

The small LEDs are grouped in a tight configuration, creating more intense light energy per square inch aimed directly toward the treated area. Not all red light LEDs are the same. The LEDs designed for the SST28 are of the highest quality, providing increased output, better results, and longer life.

The 28,443 red and near-infrared LEDs are placed in very specific locations on the SST28 to maximize the benefits of the targeted light. While other devices utilize just one wavelength of light or place LEDs in alternate rows, the SST28’s LED placements have been carefully located in specific configurations to work more effectively on various parts of the body.

Red and near-infrared light energy diminishes quickly with distance. Clamshell designed therapy beds may look aesthetically pleasing, but the amount of energy reaching the body can diminish more than 50% due to the distance away from the LED light source.

That’s why the SST28 is designed so the LED lights are almost touching the body. The SST28 combines the best targeted red and near-infrared light sources with a unique design bringing the lights closer to the body maximizing the intended therapeutic results.

Targeted and superior light source, increased output, calculated configuration, and close proximity. These are just some of the reasons why the SmartSun Therapy SST28 delivers the most advanced results of any red light therapy device.

A New Era in Indoor Tanning

Now that you understand how red and near-infrared therapy works, your next step is to find how you can best provide this new technology to your customers. Smart Tan can help you with that, too. Before we partnered with the manufacturer of the SST28 SmartSun Therapy unit, we researched every other full-body unit available to the market. We are happy to direct you to the other devices on the market so you can research them yourselves.

What you’ll discover is the reason why the only full-body red light therapy unit found in the U.S. indoor tanning market is the SST28. We’re confident that you’ll find what the dozens of other tanning salons currently using the SST28 discovered. There is no comparison in technology, performance, and price.
