How long has the Biomat been in use?
The Biomat has been in use since 1997.
NASA had the technology patented since the 1960's and it came in public domain in 1997. A similar device that was not easy to use was $500,000 and sold only to cancer institutes.
Now you can get this FDA medical device for your home or office at an incredibly affordable price!
Can you tell me if this product is safe to lie on for any period of time? I am concerned about the electromagnetics as being harmful.
The harmful electromagnetic fields that you should try to limit and avoid are 60 cycle, AC (alternating current) electromagnetic fields.
These fields have been proven harmful, and after Nikolai Tesla discovered them and released them, he soon after begged for them to be revoked due to their detrimental effects on the human body, yet it is what you find in your homes and in most every electrical device.
The Biomat is transformed (converted) to a DC (direct current) in its control box, making it much more suitable and harmonizing for interaction with the human body.
Are there any contraindications?
It's always recommended to consult with your physician for any specific health concerns. Remember to stay hydrated while using the Biomat. Here is a list of contraindications:
● Organ transplants – Recipients of any type of organ transplant (kidney, heart, liver, etc) are advised not to use the Biomat. After an organ transplant, patients will need to take immunosuppressant (anti-rejection) drugs to help prevent their immune system from attacking, or rejecting, the new organ. The use of the Biomat's FIR can interfere with these harsh drugs.
● External pacemaker – It is recommended that those with an external pacemaker should not use the Biomat.
Use with Caution:
● Fever – We recommend anyone experiencing a high fever to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only.
● Joint injuries – We recommend anyone with recent (acute) joint injuries to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only. Injuries should not be heated within the first 48 hours, as joints that are chronically hot or swollen may respond poorly to heat.
● Internal pacemaker or defibrillator – We recommend anyone who uses an internal pace maker and/or defibrillator to consult their physician before the use of the Biomat. In general, infrared heat has not been shown to interfere or damage pacemakers or defibrillators. However, there may be a small chance of causing interference occasionally. We recommend anyone who uses a pacemaker and/or defibrillator to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause an increase in heart beat. Some people who use a pacemaker, experience discomfort since their heart beat is being controlled. If you are experiencing continued discomfort, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention. For persons with a defibrillator, do not lay the Biomat directly over your device.
● Certain ailments – We recommend anyone with the following ailments to use the Biomat on low heat (95F – 113F) or negative ions only. It is inadvisable to raise the core temperature to high levels of persons with the following conditions:
2.Systematic Lupus Erythematosus
3.Heat Sensitive MS (anyone with other types of MS can use the Biomat at any setting)
● Bypass surgery – We recommend anyone who has undergone bypass surgery to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause normal blood vessels to expand. Some people who have gone through bypass surgery may experience some discomfort.
● Diabetes – Many people with diabetes find great relief with the Biomat. But it is recommended that anyone with diabetes to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F).
● Diabetics' skin is weak, which can cause low heat burn from the use of the Biomat. Once the skin is damaged, it may be difficult to recover.
● High blood pressure (hypertension) – We recommend people with chronically high blood pressure to use the Biomat with caution before and after use, and on low heat only (95F-113F). Sudden changes in body and/or weather temperature may cause an increase in blood pressure.
● Pregnancy or expectant women – We recommend women in their pregnancy or those who are expecting to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Excessive temperatures have a potential for fetal damage during early months of pregnancy so it is important to consult your physician before use of the Biomat.
● Surgical implants – Recipients of titanium, metal, ceramic, or plastic implants can use the Biomat. Surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system.
● Silicon – Silicon implants may be warmed by infrared rays. Silicon is known to melt at over 200 degrees Celsius or 392 Fahrenheit, so it should not be adversely affected by infrared rays. It is advised that you consult your surgeon before use.
How long should I stay on the BioMat?
This is a personal preference.
Anywhere from a 30-minute nap to sleeping on it over night.
Remember to drink plenty of water before and after.
The benefits are cumulative, so the more you use it, the longer the benefits stay with you.
