Infrared radiation delivers warmth to the human body. The warmth of the irradiation increases blood flow in the irradiated skin tissues. Increased temperature also improves local metabolism. Improved blood flow brings more oxygen and nutrients to the treated area and encourages the speed of healing. Using Beurer Infrared Radiator Lamp IL30 is easy:
