"How long is a Nanobeam treatment session?" This varies, based upon the nature of the affected area to be treated. The depth of penetration required, the density of the tissue structures involved and the type of injury/ailment will determine the length of exposure. A single location may be exposed for 30 seconds if the problem is near the surface of the skin, or for 2 minutes for joint pain, however for deeper penetration for, say, arthritis of the hip joint it may take 8 minutes or more depending on the body mass index of the patient. Muscle pain is typically treated for 2 minutes per 5 cm (2") area.

"Will the Nanobeam get rid of my pain?" The Nanobeam 940 has been cleared by the FDA for the temporary relief of arthritis and muscle pain, and for relief associated with increasing circulation. Reports vary from "my pain went from a 10 to a 4 the day of treatment, and the following day went to a 0", to "it didn't help my Rheumatoid arthritis at all". To date we do not have any evidence that the Nanobeam is effective in the treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis, so we recommend using the Nanobeam for Osteoarthritis, muscle pain and to treat injuries where increased circulation is beneficial.

"Does the pain relief provided by the Nanobeam last?" Relief is considered temporary, especially since resuming normal activities following treatment can cause re-injury of the affected area. Individual results may vary, however we are highly encouraged by the reports from clinicians.

Studies of pain relief duration are needed to determine the percentage of treatment recipients who experience weeks and even months of pain-free activity. We highly encourage independent researchers to conduct efficacy studies of their own to confirm the results reported by clinics.

"What are the advantages of the Nanobeam over other devices?" The Nanobeam focuses 940 nm non-coherent infrared energy in a concentrated area, delivering the desired joules of infrared energy in a short period of time. It is designed to be portable. lightweight and durable. The handle and head are constructed of anodized aluminum for durability and the total weight including the carrying case is around 3 pounds.

"Do I need a prescription to purchase a Nanobeam?" Yes, since the Nanobeam 940 is designed for clinical use, a licensed health care practitioner should provide guidance in the proper use and applicability of near-infrared treatment.

"What are the indications for use?" The indicated use of the Nanobeam 940 is to emit energy in the near-infrared spectrum for the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis and muscle spasm, relieving stiffness, promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where heat is indicated.

How deep does the Nanobeam 940 near-infrared light penetrate? This depends on the type of cellular structure the beam must pass through to reach the afflicted region. The intensity is reduced exponentially as it penetrates into deep tissue, so the deeper the injury, the weaker the intensity of the near-infrared light. This isn't a problem since extending the time of treatment allows sufficient light energy to reach the desired area to cause the desired effect. Treatment of hip joint pain is possible with the Nanobeam 940.
