How Does it Work?
The BioFlex Personal Therapy System works by irradiating or bathing injured or diseased tissue with Red and Infrared light in a specific sequence, intensity and duration. When effectively applied, this process initiates a series of physiological reactions within the tissue cells that leads to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
More on the Power of Red and Infrared Light
There are currently over 4,000 scientific papers and another 400 clinical studies that support the efficacy of light therapy. A great deal of the initial landmark research on this therapy was conducted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); research that acted as a spring board for many of the studies that followed.
Most of the research mentioned above has focused on the optimal wavelengths for ensuring maximum penetration and absorption by injured or diseased cells within the tissue. This research has determined that Red light at a wavelength of approximately 660nm and infrared light at 840nm is optimal, which is why the LED’s used in the BioFlex Treatment Arrays have been designed to emit these exact wavelengths.
The Treatment Array
The patented Treatment Array covers a large surface area and is designed to be hands-free in that both Red and Infrared LED’s are built into the array surface. The arrays, which are both very durable and easy to maintain, adjust easily to a variety of anatomical configurations providing for a snug, tight fit against the skin which is critical for optimal performance.
The Controller Unit
The controller’s touch screen technology makes the unit very easy to use. It is pre-programmed with scientifically developed, specific protocols for each of the 12 anatomical regions depicted on the face of the controller. For each protocol there are four intensity levels available which help contribute to optimum clinical outcomes.

The BioFlex Personal Therapy System comes in two models – The BioFlex 120 and The Bioflex 180. While both models may appear to be identical, the BioFlex 180 offers 10% more power output with a 40% larger treatment array.
