Infrared saunas work based on the ability of infrared radiation
heat the human body. Infrared radiation or thermal radiation
- A type of heat distribution. This is the same warmth that you feel
from the hot stove or radiators . It has no
in common , either with ultraviolet or X-rays and with absolutely
safe for humans.
Infrared saunas are most suited for modern life.
Judge for yourself: the small investment of time and energy for the session, small
dimensions can even be placed in an ordinary apartment, high efficiency
to combat fatigue, prevents colds and other diseases, the availability of
people of all ages. It is important to understand that an infrared sauna all
a modern technological solution to an old problem - the body heat
and it is impossible to oppose the traditional baths and saunas. Rather,
complementary devices. We can say that the traditional baths and saunas
this is the place for a traditional pastime with friends, while
infrared saunas as a recreational device. Infrared Sauna
a cabin made of wood. Inside
cab mounted on rear, corner (front) and foot-infrared
radiators (heaters) from special ceramics. Session in the sauna this last
approximately 30 minutes at an air temperature of 45-500C and natural
humidity. Sweating in an infrared sauna is much higher than in normal
saunas and baths, with much milder conditions, which causes
great health benefits. In an infrared sauna apply the method of direct
(Direct) heating the human body, which differs significantly from the indirect
method of heating used in the traditional baths and saunas. Of course,
not necessary to prove that the direct heating method is much more efficient,
than indirect. In conventional sauna stove (wood burning or electric), first
warms the stones, then rocks heated air, and only after this
is heated body. The air has low heat capacity, so
for efficient heating of the human body, it is necessary to heat up,
as is done in a Finnish sauna, steam, or add, as is done in Russian
paired or Turkish baths. Another significant shortcoming of traditional
baths is that the air in their pair almost at rest. As the operation
He quickly becomes saturated with a large number (4-5%) of carbon dioxide and fumes
sweat. Therefore, in the process of working a short time later in the pair of baths
formed stuffiness effect, since the concentration of carbon dioxide increases
8 - 10 times compared with its content in the air space for recreation.
The increase in air temperature has its drawbacks: the possibility of increasing
Burns of the skin and upper respiratory tract, there is a risk
get skin diseases. Increased humidity has the same
the negative side - reduced partial pressure of oxygen in the air
and, consequently, increases the risk of acute cardiovascular disease.
Absolute contraindications for taking bath or Finnish sauna are
tumors (benign or malignant) or suspicion of their presence,
active form of tuberculosis, bleeding, circulatory failure.
In an infrared sauna are special heaters that work in the unseen
range of the infrared spectrum. They are located around the human body for
the most efficient heating. Thus, up to 90% of energy generated
emitters, goes directly into the human body, bypassing the heating of the air.
Only 10% of the energy goes into heating the air (in the case of ceramic heaters).
This explains the low temperature in an infrared sauna. In addition,
these heaters do not burn oxygen in the sauna.
