Curavi is an adjustable belt for adult men and women that's been made to help relieve mild to moderate pain, spasms or inflammation in the lower back. It's FDA-cleared and has been deemed suitable for adults of any age, including the elderly. The device delivers concentrated beams of laser light that penetrate beneath the skin at a safe level in order to help mitigate the inflammation process, with the goal of reducing pain and discomfort for users.
The cost of Curavi is $799.00 plus $9.95 shipping for a total price of $808.95.
Regardless of which of the three types of Curavi belt you have, you'll first need to add the lithium-ion battery pack to the appropriate pouch. You may need to charge the battery pack by plugging it into an electrical outlet first—check your instruction manual to verify if this is necessary. When it's charged, it should fit comfortably into the rectangular pouch located near one end of the belt.
Next, while making sure you don't accidentally squish the battery pack, wrap the Curavi belt around your waist and fasten it shut. Keep in mind that it should be resting against your bare skin, as opposed to your clothing. If you have a larger waist circumference, you can use the included belt extender to make your belt larger, if need be. Your belt should fit fairly snugly, but not so snugly that it feels uncomfortable to wear it.
Once your belt is secure, start your first laser treatment session by pressing the power button on your battery pack. This will cause a 30-minute session to begin, during which targeted laser light will penetrate through the skin on your lower back to reach your muscles. Within seconds, you should notice that this reduces any pain or discomfort you were previously experiencing. You may feel a heating sensation, but this is typical with laser light treatment, and unless it feels like you're getting burned, it isn't anything to be concerned about.
Your first session will automatically end after 30 minutes, and your battery pack will turn itself off on its own. Following that, you'll need to remove your belt and store it in a safe place until you need it again. If you'd like to give yourself another round of treatment, you should wait at least 30 minutes before you start another session, in order to be gentle on the battery. You can safely give yourself as many treatments a day as you'd like to, as long as you wait 30 minutes in between each one.
When you decide to obtain a Curavi belt, you'll be able to decide between three distinct types. The most economical option, the Ultra, will provide the least amount of coverage and a lower level of laser light output. Meanwhile, the least economical option, the Pro, will come with the highest level of output and coverage, and the Plus option will lie somewhere in between. If your lower back issues aren't that serious, the Ultra may suit you well, while people with more serious issues might want to splurge on the Plus or Pro.
Each of these black belts comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which may last you for two or three years before it needs to be replaced, even with frequent use. What's more, the battery will fit nicely into the rectangular pouch on the front of each belt, so you'll be able to move around instead of sitting or lying down as you use your belt.
No matter where you store it, this type of belt and all of its accessories will take up no more than a few feet of storage space. If you want to transport your belt in your vehicle, you'll be able to put it in the included lightweight carrying case and store all of the accessories in the included accessory pouch. On its own, each belt is also lightweight, so while you're wearing it, you shouldn't feel like you're dragging around a bunch of extra pounds.
As many people know, different countries and continents often have different types of electrical outlets. Luckily, the universal adapter that comes with each Curavi belt will help you plug the battery pack into a wide variety of outlets for recharging purposes. This universal adapter, with its three interchangeable plugs, is compatible with outlets with voltage levels between 100 and 240.
Every Curavi belt is made of durable, breathable material that will only add to your level of comfort as you use the portable device around your home or elsewhere.
The treatment that your Curavi device will provide is considered non-invasive since no instruments will actually be entering your body throughout the process. Aside from a moderate heating sensation, the treatment has been designed to be pain-free. The laser light that's coming from each belt's diodes will travel underneath your skin, but only as far as it is safe to do so, and you should barely feel it as it enters.
If you don't like taking orally ingested pharmaceuticals each day (or even occasionally) for your lower back pain, you may be happy to use a Curavi device. While you can use one in conjunction with drug treatment, too, you may no longer need any drug treatment once you start using the belt on a regular basis. Furthermore, unlike some drugs, you'll never need a doctor's prescription to continue using this inflammation-relief device.
Some light therapy devices employ LED lights instead of laser lights, but LED lights are often less effective. When LED lights are turned on, the light tends to spread, while laser lights will deliver pinpointed beams of a higher concentration at a specific area that needs to be treated. As a result, devices that make use of laser lights instead of LEDs may deliver quicker, more noticeable results to users.
The relief each Curavi belt can provide is temporary, which means that if you want to permanently cure the problems you have with your lower back, you'll need to seek further treatment. Otherwise, as soon as you stop using your belt regularly, or even if you neglect to use it for a few days, you may notice your previous pain and discomfort returning.
If you want to wear your Curavi belt over your clothing while you're out and about, this probably won't work very well. Most importantly, the device's laser beams won't reach your skin as effectively through clothing as they would when coming in direct contact with your skin. Plus, while each belt's battery pack isn't incredibly bulky, it may be too bulky for you to fit it discreetly under certain tops.

Light Emitting Diode is what LED stands for. Those are obviously diodes and if they are going to be untruthful about that (zero LED light) then I do not trust them about any of their claims.
I'd follow the review's advice to follow the links to Amazon. As the reviewer shared, those belts are cheaper (very nice selection of styles), and if you notice those sellers are being open about using IR LEDs. Some of the belts even share about the wavelengths they are using of each diode and the placement of the diode on the belt/device.
Follow the links instead of buying this over-priced belt ( up to 30% interest BTW).
