VON ARDENNE has, for forty years, been undertaking research, development and application of systems for warming up the whole body; and hasbecome established as the world leader in whole body hyperthermia using water-filtered infrared-A radiation (wIRA). IRATHERM® reproduces the equivalent part of infrared sun radiation, which can be used to warm up the body in...
Scientific research has shown a whole range of possible effects: vasodilation, increase of vascular perfusion, stimulation and acceleration of cellular metabolism, direct and selective damage to tumor tissue (mainly in local hyperthermia), blocking the repair mechanisms of DNA damaged by radio- or chemotherapy, stimulating the response immune system of the organism, strengthening hematopoiesis and production
Whole-body hyperthermia in the case of a warm-blooded organisms consists in breaking the natural thermoregulation. When fever is endogenous (e.g. as a natural reaction to infection), the rise in temperature is triggered by pyrogens such as interleukin 1β, interleukin 6 and interferon α, which act directly on the region responsible for thermoregulation in the central
