Please keep the right distance from your infrared lamp to get the best results and to prevent injury.
What distance should I keep from my Philips InfraCare?
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.
- 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.
