What distance should I keep from my Philips InfraCare?

Published on 2018-02-07

Please keep the right distance from your infrared lamp to get the best results and to prevent injury.

Distance per InfraCare model

The following distances between device and body are recommended during use:

  • InfraCare 150 W, 200 W (models HP3621, PR3110) – 30 cm
  • InfraCare 300 W (models HP3631, PR3120) – 30–40 cm
  • InfraCare 650 W (models HP3641, HP3643, PR3140) – 40–50 cm

Importance of proper distance

At a larger distance, the area treated becomes larger and therefore the heat spread by the infrared light is less intense. At a smaller distance, the area treated is smaller and therefore the heat is more intense.

Please note:

  • Make sure that the distance between your body and the appliance is large enough to prevent accidental contact with the hot filter;
  • Choose a distance at which the heat is comfortable and increase the distance if the heat becomes too intense.
