Key things to look for on the specification table before ordering:

 

Built in timing system

If you are using your red light therapy bed for a commercial setting it is essential that the bed has a built in timing system so that clients can enter and exit the bed by themselves.

 

How fast will you earn the cost of the bed back?

Use the ROI calculator to work out how long it will take to earn back the cost of the bed. The calculator is based off of

 

Fits through opening of door

Some beds will not fit through the standard USA door opening of 32 inches and will need to be disassembled by the white glove delivery team on site and then reassembled in your chosen room. However, do not worry this is very common and not a big deal.

 

Length of bed

Some beds will not be suitable for taller people of 6 ft 2 or more

 

Energy use / bill

This will drastically vary depending on how much you use the bed but check the power statistics of the bed to get an estimate of the cost per month. 4x as much energy is used for 220V compared to to 110V. So if buy the Prism Light Pod you are saving $30k over the 15 year life time.

 

Wavelengths available

Depending on the therapeutic affects you are looking to achieve, you will need different wavelengths of red light to penetrate the skin. 630nm for skin benefits, as you increase wavelengths you get into the deep tissue. 660nm is good for brain health.

 

Number of LEDs

Anything over around 12,000 lights is going to be a solid option

 

Warranty length

Check the warranty carefully to make sure you are protected if anything goes wrong with the product

 

LED Lifetime

Check that the LEDs used are long lasting and of high quality. Most beds will last for 15 years or more, and use LEDs with 100,000 working hours lifetime.

 

Treatment time

In experiments with half an inch on the backside and 2-4 inches on the topside 15 minutes was found to be an optimal session duration. 3 -5 times a week for 2 weeks for severe chronic condition. Once or twice a week for just helping wellness.

 

Cleaning

How quickly can you clean the bed, and does it require much maintenance?

 

Customization available?

Some of our beds can be fully customized with custom wavelengths, programming, and design/logos. We can do anything the customer needs.

Delivery and installation

Ovation ULT

These beds ship from Las Vegas and usually take around 10 business days to arrive from the date you order.

We can offer you free white glove delivery, so a team of 2 will bring the bed to the room of your choice and unbox it. This bed comes completely assembled and all you need to do is plug it in to the socket. Very easy!

One thing to look out for is to make sure the room you want it to be placed in has an opening of 32 inches or more, which is the standard opening size.

 

Prism Light Pod

2 man team from the Prism Light Pod company will deliver the unit themselves, disassemble into 3 pieces and than remake in your room of choice.

The company will even help with marketing your business for FREE, providing you with a clear marketing plan to bring in customers from day 1.

 

Solbasium

Shipping the beds takes one to month three months on average depending on the order que. Each bed is custom made so it takes time to manufacture. The beds ship from Sydney, Australia and Hopewell, Virginia.

We can offer you white glove delivery, so a team of 2 will bring the bed to the room of your choice and unbox it.

These beds come fully assembled. If the client has a door space that is 3 feet in width we can dissemble the bed into multiple pieces to move it into the room or ship it in multiple pieces and assemble when they arrive.

How to order and pay

To place an order for a red light therapy bed it is a slightly different process to our other products due to their higher price range.

You can order in two ways:

Contacting us and requesting an invoice

This is the way most customers choose to order. You simply call, email, or live chat us and request an invoice for the specific red-light bed you want to order. We will ask for the delivery and billing address, then send it via email. This will include our banking information where you can either pay by wire or ACH payment.

Ordering through the online store

Alternatively, if you would prefer not to speak to anyone you can order through our online store. Simply press the add to cart button and follow the steps at the checkout. When you click pay YOUR CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED, this is simply a card authorization however once we receive the order we will send you a traditional invoice via email and cancel the card authorization (we do not store card details).

The reason we cannot accept credit/debit card payment for red light therapy bed orders is because there is a high risk of fraud. As a small business fraud artists try to target us by ordering with a credit card then telling their card company that we did not deliver the product, this results in a charge back so they receive the product as well as the original payment. Which would destroy our business. This is why we can only accept wire or ACH payment. For all our other products we accept credit / debit cards.

 

Do you offer discounts?

Please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss discounts to meet your budget. Discounts will vary depending on the brand of red light bed you are ordering and where you are delivering the bed.

 

Budget friendly options

If the red light therapy beds are out of your budget at the moment but you would still like to benefit from adding red light therapy to your business or home then we have a solution for you.

We sell the Prism Light Pad which is a very effective option. By buying two of these you can get similar results in your business to buying the complete bed.

With the light pads you can only do 2 sessions an hour because they are less powerful. This is when you have two pads on top of each other.

The downside is they are less attractive to customers in your marketing efforts, but is still a great option and lots of medical spa owners choose this option.
