SMARTY Technology: The Power of Carbon
By using the Smarty, sweat can be expelled from the depth of our body.
The secret is in its shell-shaped carbon black heaters. The miracle
power of carbon black has been well known for many years. Carbon black
contains the same organic material as our human body. So it can deeply
resonate with cells of human bodies and warm us from the inside. You
can also enjoy bathing in Smarty with clothes and without sweating.
The remarkable thermal effects thermographs show how completely the
Smarty warms the core of the body, compared to other sauna-type devices.
A. Normal body temperature distribution
before a Smarty treatment.
B. Body temperature distribution after a Smarty
treatment. The whole
body is evenly warmed.
C. Body temperature distribution after using a
sitting type sauna box or
similar thermal equipment. The distribution shows that some parts of
body are not warmed well enough, especially the tips of hands and feet.
There is no outside pressure exerted on the body, which makes the Smarty
safe for older people. At the periphery of our circulatory system are
very fine capillaries that are less than .5 microns in diameter. Bathing
in a hot spring or normal bath is not always safe for people who have
high blood pressure, problems with respiratory organs or the brain because
fine capillaries may be compressed due to pressure from the water on
the outside of the body. There is only air in the Smarty's domes, so
the pressure on the body is minimal. The strain on the heart is also
very small when you are lying down, compared to when you are sitting
or standing. Because the Smarty's main position for use is lying down,
the body and mind are completely relaxed. Furthermore, far infrared
rays from Smarty can stimulate 48 pressure points that are gathered
on the soles of the feet.
A fundamental principle for health - "cool head and warm legs and
body" - is part of the Smarty secret. When using the Smarty, your
face is outside and therefore you can, in contrast to a normal sauna,
breathe plenty of fresh air while you enjoy your Smarty treatment. The
following text describes the perfect sauna, according to a leading medical
magazine: "A sauna box that allows one's head to protrude would
be most advantageous. While sleeping, man breaches nine liters fresh
air containing 21% oxygen each minute. In a sitting position, 27 liters
are required. During physical exercise, 90 liters per minute are required.
A sauna has about the same effect as physical exercise, i.e., 90 liters
per minute are required. Thus, 30 minutes in the sauna requires 2,700
liters of fresh air. Even a large box-type sauna for a single person
measures only 90 cm wide, 90 cm deep and 180cm high, and thus has a
volume of not more than 1,500 liters. If the door were closed tightly,
you would have to breathe your own exhalation. The oxygen concentration
in air exhaled by man falls all the way to 16%, which is not even sufficient
to burn a match. Improvement of blood circulation in a sauna is supposed
to invigorate the body through a sufficient oxygen supply. This box-type
sauna, however, creates a form of oxygen deficiency. That is why the
head should be able to protrude from the sauna to breathe fresh air.
Installation of a ventilation window is another possibility, but the
inflow of cold air during the winter may markedly inhibit perspiration.
Recently, a sauna with an oxygen supply has been marketed. In a sauna
where you can stick out your head, you don't have to worry about dizziness,
headaches, or a mussed-up hair. However, irradiation of the head with
FIR can make the face skin beautiful and can also promote hair growth.
Accordingly, a sauna that completely irradiates head and face would
be ideal if you could stick out your head after a certain period of
irradiation of head." This describes the Smarty·perfectly!
The Smarty Secret: Carbon Far Infrared
NASA has discovered that electromagnetic rays are absolutely
necessary for the metabolism and growth of human beings. Among these
infrared rays, rays with a wavelength between 3-1000 microns are called
"far infrared rays". Human beings have been using such rays,
without knowing of their existence, since time began. These invisible
rays are a blessing from the sun. They penetrate deeply into our body
and create heat. These effective electromagnetic rays are indispensable
for our growth. It has been proven that far infrared rays with a wavelength
between 8-14 microns are mildly absorbed into our body and have a positive
influence on our body too. These waves are called "growing light
Smarty's Patended Black Carbon Heaters
The Smarty uses patented black carbon heater to radiate far infrared
rays mildly and effectively onto the body. Carbon black is made from
charcoal. Most far infrared heaters use inorganic materials such as
ceramic. However, our body is made up of organic substances and a heater
made of organic material is much more suitable for the human body.
The Secret of Far Infrared Rays
When electromagnetic rays meet the waves emitted from our cells, they
resonate with each other and as a result, warm our body from the depth.
Therefore, a heater should radiate waves whose length is nearer to that
of waves we emit.
The effects of far infrared rays weaken with distance. So the closer
to the source of the rays your body is, the more impact far infrared
rays will have. The dome design of the Smarty puts your body as close
as possible to the source of the rays. In addition the Smarty includes
a safety system, which prevents low temperature scalding from the rays.
The Smarty emits far infrared rays with a wavelength between 5-20 microns
that meet the wavelength radiated from our body. These essential rays
work mildly but effectively on our body and charge positive energy without
causing any strain. Measuring far infrared rays so they match the rays
your body emits. A wavelength of infrared can be calculated by Wien's
radiation-law after the measurement of absolute surface temperature
of the heating materials.
Wien's radiation-law states that:
Wavelength = 2897 (Wien's constant)
(micron) Temperature of surface (degree C) + 273
So if we look at the rays emitted by the human body:
1) of human body 2897 = about 9,4 micron Temp. of a human body 36,5+273
36,5 degrees C. in average
And we compare them to the rays emitted by the Smarty·
2) of Fujika Smarty 2897 = 8,7 micron Temp. on the surface of a heater
60+273 about 60 degrees C
. . .then we note that the Smarty closely matches the infrared emissions
from the human body. Plus it is noted that the temperature on the surface
of the Smarty remains at 60 degrees C.
This is different from other types of far infrared treatment systems,
which emits rays which do not match the body's emissions, and create
intense heat on the surface of the heating unit:
3) of a bar shape heater 2897 = 4,3 micron Temp. on the surface of a
heater 400+273 about 400 degrees C
Focused radiation in shell-shaped domes. Furthermore, Smarty's unique
domes are designed to cover the whole body and to heighten the effect
of the shell-shaped heaters by focusing them toward the body. This design
increases the density of radiation and makes it possible to radiate
far infrared rays toward the center of our body. The reflection mat
also improves the efficiency of the radiation.
