Why are low EMF and low ELF levels important?

Low EMF Infrared Saunas|
True Wave™ far infrared heaters are the original carbon based infrared heaters with virtually no EMF (Electromagnetic Fields). Jacuzzi® pioneered this technology for use in infrared saunas. More and more research is being conducted into the harmful effects of EMF. That is why their R&D department spent over two years developing both patented and patent pending methods to eliminate virtually all of the EMF from their heaters. Many of their competitors still have EMF levels 20 to 50 times higher than their True Wave™ infrared heaters. With an average EMF level of less than 1milligauss (mg), when tested directly on the heater, it is well below the CDC’s recommendation of a maximum of 3mg.
Some health effects linked with EMF are:
Loss of Energy
Inability To Concentrate
Weakened Immune System
Dr. Duncan, the founder and designer of Clearlight Infrared Sauna® models, has always ensured that the therapeutic results of your sauna are their number one priority. Seeing the research and information available on the harmful effects of EMF, we felt that if there was a chance that high levels of EMF can cause health issues, we needed to find a way to bring the levels down as low as possible. We were the first company to accomplish this with our True Wave II, far infrared heaters and True Spectrum, full spectrum heaters.
Low ELF Infrared Saunas
ELF (extremely low frequency) is also referred to as the electric fields or dirty electricity. There are some people that are very sensitive to ELF and have various reactions including sleep disruption and agitation and there is some link to cancer as discussed in this Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Bulletin: https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/elfradiation/healtheffects.html
All Jacuzzi® infrared saunas include their ELF canceling technology. While EMF is canceled in the heater itself, they have to go to great lengths to cancel the ELF from their saunas.
1. They run the electrical wires through metal conduit.
2. They twist the wires to cancel the ELF and EMF.
3. They protect all electronics with foil shielding.
4. They carbonize and ground the fishnet mesh that covers their heaters to ground and cancel the ELF.
This is all very time consuming and expensive, but Jacuzzi® believes it’s worth it.
