Claim of US Patent No. 10,363,434

1. A LED therapy bed comprising:a plurality of LED modules;
the plurality of LED modules each having upstanding walls;
an acrylic cover over the plurality of LED modules;
the acrylic cover resting on and supported by the upstanding walls of the modules;
a first frame supporting each of the LED modules of the LED therapy bed;
wherein the frame is separate from the upstanding walls of the modules;
each LED module having a plurality of different LEDs regulated by one or more current limiting circuits;
the plurality of different LEDs configured to be overdriven to increase light output beyond normal operating intensity and to further produce thermal heat from the plurality of LEDs in order to produce a skin temperature of a user between 101 and 108 degrees Fahrenheit from direct thermal conduction;
each of the LED modules further including at least one thermal sensor placed between the LEDs and is in conductive contact with the acrylic cover; the at least one thermal sensor in each module being supported by and resting within a recess in a flexible arm that is located between the LEDs of each module; the flexible arm being mounted on a second frame that sits between the LEDs; the at least one thermal sensor within each module locally senses a temperature adjacent the underside of the acrylic cover which is over the LEDs of each module;
each of the LED modules further including at least one fan wherein the fan speed is regulated directly or indirectly by said at least one thermal sensor; and
a master controller that controls the LEDs; the at least one fan and the at least one thermal sensor in each said module; wherein the temperature of each module, LED or cluster of LEDs is separately controlled while each module or LED or cluster of LEDs is providing treatment;
wherein the LEDs, the thermal sensor, the current limiting circuit, and the fan are controlled by the master controller to raise and maintain the skin temperature of all areas of the user's body being treated by the LED therapy bed from a starting temperature to a same therapeutic temperature in the range of 101 to 108 degrees Fahrenheit.
