Here is a quick overview of Red Light Therapy devices you can buy through our affiliate link plus additional information on how to use the devices. The only difference between the base series and the modular series is that the modular series is designed to connect to multiple devices to make an overall larger panel of lights.
MitoMIN light is 13″ x 9″ with 60 lights. Best used for targeted treatment. More information and Buy
MitoMID light is 19″ x 9″ with 100 lights. Best used for half body treatment. More Information and Buy
MitoMAX is 36″ x 9″ with 200 lights. Best used for full body treatment. More information and Buy
MitoMEGA is 36″ x 12″ with 300 lights. Best used for full body treatments. More information and Buy
Since these units are modular and can connect together, you can have up to 11 configuration using these three devices:
Mito MODULAR 300 is 12″ x 9″ with 60 lights. Best used for targeted treatment (the stand can come off) More information and Buy

How to use your device
Mount your NIR/Red Light therapy light to a door or wall using a hanging fixture or hang it against a wall or surface. You can also stand your light upright during usage. If you are using multiple modular units connected together, you can mount them to the portable stand found through the links above.
Turn the power switches to the ON position. There are two separate switches—Red Light 660nm and Near-Infrared 850nm. We recommend using both at the same time for maximum effect.
Expose the area you want to treat on your body about 6-12 inches away from the device for about 10 minutes; longer if you are sitting, standing or exercising further away from 12 in. Exposure should be directly to the skin with no clothes or hair in the way. Treat each area for 10-20 minutes per day. Using your device every day will maximize the rate of response and healing. It is very important to be consistent with red light therapy to notice results.
For first-time users, begin small by starting out with 2-3 minute treatments per area, slowly working up to a 10 minute session over the course of a couple of weeks. Note that the light is bright! Close your eyes or wear the included goggles.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How long should I use the device for?
A: It depends completely upon the area being treated and the distance of treatment. In general, all that is usually needed is 10-20 minutes.
Q: Should I wear eye protection?
A: Eye protection is not required or necessary. However, we don’t recommend looking directly at the LEDs because it can sometimes be uncomfortable as they are very bright! With that said, your eyes typically become accustomed to the light and it is then OK to open your eyes, as long as you aren’t feeling discomfort.
Q: Why aren’t the infrared LEDs working? I can’t see them.
A: Near infrared (NIR) light is actually not visible to the naked human eye. It is outside of the visual spectrum, and as a result, it cannot be seen. However, there is a very slight glow that comes from the LEDs, especially in dark conditions, so if you are concerned the NIR LEDs are really not working, you can test them that way.
Q: Can children use the device?
A: Yes, children can use the device under adult supervision. Never use the device on infants, though. If a child is older than 12 years old, they may follow the previously referenced treatment times. If a child is younger than 12 years old, they should opt for half the dose that would be recommended for adults.
Q: When can I expect results?
A: Results vary depending on goals and treatment consistency. With that being said, many people will experience benefits such as increased muscle recovery, relief of pain and increased wound healing relatively quickly. However, more systemic benefits such as enhanced skin health, increased energy, improved hormonal health and increased quality of sleep may take 8-12 weeks of consistent use. Using your device every day will maximize the rate of response and healing. It is very important to be consistent with red light therapy.
Q: Does red light therapy interfere with the medications?
A: Red and near infrared light therapy has been proven in thousands of clinical studies and peer reviewed clinical trials to be not only safe but also effective. However, if you use medications such as Tetracycline, Digoxin, Retin A, and/or other photo sensitizing drugs, we recommend consulting with your doctor or health care provider before using the device.
Q: Can I wear clothing during my treatment sessions?
A: Of course, just make sure that the area that you’re treating is completely exposed.
