B-Infrared (IR)  Radiant Heat


Heat radiation can be achieved by using infrared (IR) radiation it penetrates about 3mm in the skin. excessive exposure can cause erythema(reddening of skin) , sometimes swelling (edema ) longer exposure can cause skin browning or hardening . It is considered to be more effective than conductive heating because it can penetrate deeper.
