What is NovoTHOR?
The NovoTHOR is the first and only whole body light pod that delivers Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) to the whole body and covers the body more evenly than any other device. It uses red and near-infrared light to treat injuries, reduce pain, relax muscles/joints, and increase blood circulation. It has been designed to deliver optimal wavelengths, power densities and dosages based on published clinical research outcomes.
NovoTHOR is a Class II Medical Device. It is designed and manufactured to comply with international Medical Device and GMP standards.
Recommended as a non-medical intervention NovoTHOR has been shown to be effective for sports injuries, acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions like tendinopathies, arthritis and gout, syndrome conditions like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, lymphoedema, and more. Preconditioning with NovoTHOR has also been shown to improve muscle recovery and performance.
The treatment with NovoTHOR is 15 minutes long; it is safe, relaxing and has no negative side effects. This whole-body restorative light treatment may be repeated two or more times a week.
Suitable for sporting teams, surfers, CrossFit enthusiasts, runners and other athletes; people with chronic conditions, as well as for busy business people, sleep deprived mums, and anyone looking to slow down the ageing process.

Commonly asked questions:
You will lie face up in the NovoTHOR whole body light pod for 15 minutes. A mixed red and near infrared LED system will deliver light to your entire body. No safety goggles need to be worn. You may wish to close your eyes due to brightness. When the session is complete, the unit will turn off automatically.
You can wear your underwear, however light cannot penetrate clothing, so ideally no clothing should be worn.
Due to increased blood circulation you will feel some warming sensation throughout your body. A fan attached to the end of the bed can be switched on and regulated if needed.
Every person’s physiological conditions are unique, therefore each person’s reaction to PBMT will be unique. However, there are some general rules of thumb that apply to the procedure. Acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, burns, etc., typically show very rapid improvement and can resolve in 2-4 sessions. Long-term, chronic conditions can take as many as 10-20 sessions to get significant benefits. Moving forward, weekly or fortnightly sessions may be necessary to maintain those benefits.
Our NovoTHOR bed is 232 cm long, so it accommodates tall people too.
To ease the discomfort, people who suffer with claustrophobia can keep the bed partially open.
