What is the difference between 3 types of Ereada® mats: BROWN, PURPLE and GEMSTONE ones?
2018 Three collections of Ereada® mats
Ereada® MATS of the same size are 20-30% heavier than other mats in the market. They may be less hot to touch but due to more crystals inside will generate more infrared rays.
Compact Pro 24"x59" and bigger mats have the following functions:
- BROWN amethyst mats: FIR, IONS, N.P.
- PURPLE amethyst mats: FIR, STATIC MAGNETS, PEMF, PHOTON, IONS, AIR IONS
- GEMSTONE mats: FIR, STATIC MAGNETS, PEMF, MORE IONS, AIR IONS
BROWN Ereada® mats are classic, similar to Richway biomats.
Mini mats with N.P., Compact Pro 24"x59” and bigger mats produce ions not only by the anion layers inside the mattress but also with a particular silver fiber layer generating High Negative Potential Electrostatic Field by DC 600v. N.P. is considered to be the most efficient for transferring more Negative Ions.
This function is similar to Richway E.D.N.I. (Electrical Discharge of Negative Ions) very relaxing and soothing. Ereada® Brown mats can generate N.P. for 1 hour simultaneously with heating while Richway Biomats can do it only when the mat heating is OFF.
PURPLE Ereada® mats and GEMSTONE Ereada® mats have the same powerful (400 gauss intensity) PEMF magnetic pulsation. Each of these mats has an additional static magnetism function with 12 pieces of 300 Gauss intensity Permanent Magnets in the hip and leg zone and more powerful PEMF coils (3 modules) are in the upper part of the body zone. You can switch between static magnets and PEMF for your upper or lower body lying with your head towards the logo area or in the opposite direction.
PURPLE Ereada® mats have additional monochromic Photon Red Light 660nm function not available on other mats.
Both PURPLE and GEMSTONE mats do not have N.P. function of the BROWN Ereada® mats or Richway Biomats. They deliver Negative Ions into the air by the controller function (AIR IONS) and by the same anion fabric layers as all Ereada® mats. GEMSTONE mats also produce more ions by ceramic tourmaline microspheres.
It is a unique natural feature of amethyst, tourmaline, and some other crystals to emit FIR radiant heating rays and Negative Ions when they are hot.
FIR emission of amethyst mats is 366 W/m2 with min 93% efficiency in the wavelength range 5-14 microns; with almost 80% of this energy transferred at two, so-called “amethyst Peaks,” at 7 and 12 microns.
For GEMSTONE MATS it is 372 W/m2 with min 92% efficiency in the wavelength range 4-20 microns; with around 50% of heating energy transferred at two amethyst Peaks at 7 and 12 microns.
Garnet, agate, chalcedony, amethyst blend with four types of tourmaline Ceramic microspheres are used in GEMSTONE MATS while only genuine pure amethyst is filled in the PURPLE and BROWN Ereada® MATS.
Small ceramic balls (2-3 mm size) are pressed from micronized tourmaline, white clay or charcoal nano-powders, volcanic stones, yellow mud, ophiolite, elvan, gold ore, ochre and other natural minerals, ores and rocks and baked at high temperatures up to 1300°C to remove all impurities.
There may be some slight difference in the FIR heat spectrum and positive effects produced by different compositions. All of ceramics emit FIR heat in the broader range 4-20 microns. Spheric shape provides a much larger surface than crushed natural stones and, therefore, is more efficient for ions production.
Either way, we use amethyst as the main stone, and even in the Gemstone mat collection, it is almost 50% of total stone weight.
Ereada® mats (bigger than mini size) have seven levels of heat on the controller between 86°F and 158°F. Both the current temperature and that one which is set to heat are not displayed, only the level is shown. It makes controllers more reliable in heavy-duty use.
The Brown and Gemstone Mini mats controllers show the Celsius temperature set to heat (for several seconds) and the current temperature which may be more convenient and informational in use.
The surface of the PURPLE and GEMSTONE mats is covered with mesh fabric, so the stones may have bigger pressure on your back than when you use the BROWN mat covered with soft suede fabric. PURPLE mat Photon functions Red Light LEDs may also create some more pressure and therefore is not very comfortable for sleeping or long procedures as the other two collections, mainly if the mat is used without Multi-layer protector or without the thin cover (one or both are included into all sets) on high heat levels.
Of course, a lot depends on your physique, and usually skinny patients are more sensitive to stones pressure.
