Study conducted at Nephrology Division at Institute of Clinical Medicine and School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China.
Many thermal therapy methods have been tried to improve blood flow but have had limited effects. A clinical trial was devised to discover the effect of Far Infrared therapy (FIR) on blood flow. This trial consisted of 145 patients, 73 of which were in the control group and 72 in the Far Infrared therapy group.
A WS TY101 FIR emitter was used for 40 minutes on each patient of the Far Infrared therapy group with measurements taken before the session and at the end of the study.
The incremental change of Qa in the single HD session with FIR therapy was significantly higher than that without FIR therapy.

The study concluded that FIR therapy is a noninvasive and convenient therapeutic treatment method for both its thermal and non-thermal effects.
French physician Maurice Raynaud discovered a circulatory disorder that reduces the blood flow to the hands and feet. This discovered became known as Raynaud’s Phenomenon (also known as Raynaud’s Disease).
Far Infrared therapy can improve blood flow which can reduce the effects of Raynaud’s Phenomenon of the fingers, toes, and other areas.
