FSA and HSA approved checkmark



The Most Flexible Light Therapy Device

The dpl® Flex Pad is an FDA-cleared, OTC Class II medical device for pain relief. This flexible system can be used anywhere on the body. Unlike a heating pad, infrared light therapy works below the skin’s surface reaching deep into tissues, stimulating cells and increasing circulation to target pain at the source. Experience how 60 medical-grade infrared lights can safely stimulate blood circulation, relax muscles, accelerate healing, and relieve pain. Feel better in just 20 minutes, right in your own home!

Features and benefits of the dpl® Flex Pad include:

  • Soft neoprene material allows for flexibility of application to a variety of body parts
  • Deeper penetration than alternative options like heating pads offer, resulting in deep-tissue cell stimulation that targets pain at the source
  • Adjustable straps to fit around the shoulder, lower back, legs, and nearly any other place on the body
  • Two types of LED lights for surface-level and deep-tissue treatment
  • Natural, prescription-free relief from inflammation, swelling, stiffness, soreness, muscle spasms, joint aches, arthritis pain and stiffness, and more
  • Increased blood circulation so cells can recover and reproduce faster
  • Cordless operation with a rechargeable battery that allows free mobility (full charge typically yields three full 20-minute treatments)

FDA-Cleared LEDs

The dpl® Flex Pad includes two types of LED lights — red and infrared. These LEDs are the same FDA-cleared lights professional physical therapists use in the office. Red light operates close to the skin’s surface to energize cells, while infrared light penetrates further for deep-tissue relief from pain and soreness. Both red and infrared LEDs are UV-free and safe to use.

Be aware that infrared light is invisible to the human eye. It may look like some of the lights are not working, but if you can see the red lights working, the infrared lights are also on.

Is the Flex Pad Right for Me?

The dpl® Flex Pad is a valuable tool for customers experiencing chronic pain from medical conditions, like arthritis, neuropathy and tendinitis, or injuries. LED light therapy strengthens cells while increasing cellular reproduction speeds to accelerate injury recovery times and reduce pain.

How Does Light Therapy Reduce Pain?

Infrared light — which is invisible to the human eye — combined with ed light, deep penetrating light (dpl®) technology reaches deep into joints and tissues to increase circulation, oxygenation, cellular repair and cellular reproduction. This process results in the removal of toxins and unwanted cellular matter. It also provides general temporary relief of muscle spasms, muscle and joint aches and arthritis and tendinitis pain. Additional benefits include an increased rate of injury recovery and wound healing.

Experience FDA-cleared lights in the comfort of your own home. Safely stimulate blood circulation, relax muscles, accelerate healing and relieve pain in just 20 minutes! dpl® uses deep penetrating light technology in the form of high-powered LED microchips to administer the same spectrums of light originally identified by NASA in over-the-counter, FDA-cleared, Class II medical devices.

dpl® light therapy products enhance the body’s natural cell repair mechanism. Research and medical studies have shown dramatic effects in pain relief and injury recovery with light therapy. This product is engineered to FDA-cleared specifications and is safe for all skin tones. Our study shows that 9 of 10 users experienced pain relief.

When Will I See Results?

LED light therapy is a 20-minute process that provides proven pain relief. Many customers report feeling relief after the first treatment. Chronic or prolonged pain may require repeated treatments before you feel noticeable pain relief.

    It is a good product, it relieved lot of my joint aches.
    Most of the lights are not coming on, it is a good product. I will be reaching out to see if they can replace it.

    This rechargeable pad makes it so easy to treat my lower back stiffness and still be active. It’s so very convenient that I am able to get more treatments than if it was a model that required an electrical plug.

  5. Steve Long (verified owner)

    Short battery life

  6. Mary Pope (verified owner)

    We had an older version and although that was good, this one is much better. LEDs are flat/comfortable and two different strap sizes are provided. Well done. I am healing a pulled Achilles tendon and the DPL Flex Pad is helping a lot.

    I first experienced LED light therapy during physical therapy and was so pleased with the results that I searched for my own and found DPL flex. I use it regularly with amazing results if I have pain in my knees, shoulders and back, etc. It works so well that I have recommended it to friends who have had the same stunning results.

    Started using this last month, it seems to be helping if you use it regularly. Started off with 3x day now every few days I treat my neck. An added bonus is within first 3 days of use that a dark spot on my neck disappeared. I was really impressed and wasn’t using it to treat acne scars.

  19. Geoffrey (verified owner)

    The DPL Flex pad does provide relief from my knee pain. I have noticed a definite improvement in the frequency and intensity of the pain since using the DPL. It’s not a cure (I have two torn meniscus and arthritis in the knee) but it certainly helps. More good days now.

    Horrible battery life. Needs a recharge after every session.

  26. Lori (verified owner)

    I like the product. I have been using it and will keep an eye on the durability of it. I think that a panel might be more durable, but this seems to be a great product in ease of use and affordability.

  27. Yi (verified owner)

    This works great for me. I do feel the difference after using it everyday. My chronic pain doesn’t bother me as much as before! I would recommend it!

  28. Anonymous (verified owner)

    price increases seem crazy. would have bought way more if it was more in line with the cost in Jan 21 which was $99.

  29. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I use the light pad on my lower back and on my hips most days. But if a knee or hand hurts I find relief right away using the light pad 2-3 days about 3 times a day. I have osteoporosis and some arthritis and the light pad gives me enough relief I haven’t had to take pain medication so far. I have bought the light pad as a gift for a few friends and family after they used mine and found it helpful.

  30. Jessica Haden (verified owner)

    This product takes all night to charge and the charger doesn’t fit properly into the charging port. Disappointing.

  31. Kate B. (verified owner)

    I love the device, but it loses it’s charge very quickly. I can charge it for a full day, use it once and then it dies again.

    Really helps relieve my muscle pain. I highly recommend the dpl infrared flex pad.

    • LED Technologies Customer Service (store manager)

    Improved my back pain

  37. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This does eliminate my back pain. I bought it because I don’t want to live on analgesics. I’m a very active person and don’t want pain to get in my way. I ski a lot in the winter and I’m hoping this will get rid of all my aches and pains. I think it’s a plus that it gives out some heat. This is easy to use. Gets into all the places I have pain – knees, lower and upper back. Easy to change. The price was very good too.

    It’s still too early to see benefit. So this review reflects that. Also, the online ordering process did not copy my address correctly. So shipping was delayed.

    Love this flexible pad, the therapy works and the pad is easy to place wherever needed, however battery life is not great, must recharge daily (i.e. after every three sessions) if used on multiple muscles.

    Wished it would charge faster and stay on longer

    • LED Technologies Customer Service (store manager)

      Hi Sally,
      Thanks for your feedback. While we are always striving to improve our devices, there are good reasons for what you’re calling out.
      Our first priority for all our devices is to ensure they are capable of providing the proper optical energy output which requires quite a bit of energy, hence the charge time, and limits on treatment time.
      Secondly, we have to ensure the Flex Pad retains the necessary flexibility to comfortably conform to the variety of treatment areas it can be applied to.
      These two factors provide critical performance limitations on the battery life. If we have a larger battery, it reduces the device’s flexibility. If we extend the power demand, we reduce the efficacy of the treatment which is never an acceptable trade-off for us.
      To help ensure your Flex Pad is ready to use when you need it, we would recommend that once you’ve completely depleted the battery (typically 3 full 20 minute treatments from a full charge), leave the device on charge until you need it again.

  76. Judith H. (verified owner)

    Great product that has really helped my husband’s pain. I only wish the pad was more flexible and that it had more battery life.

  77. Mary (verified owner)

    DPL flex does work for pain and inflammation. I used it twice a day for one week I noticed pain was almost gone and the inflammation was reduced by 90%. it took me 5-7 days to see the results. the only “downside” the charge worked for 3 sessions if you have multiple areas it must be recharged. read the instructions make sure it is completed depleted before recharging.

  78. Ken

    This device is awesome! I love the fact that it is rechargeable!

  79. Dorothy

    I use this therapy pad frequently it has been very helpful in healing relief for my torn LCL and have referred 5 people to buy your company’s product- please thank the young lady that was so kind to me today💕

  80. Jesse (verified owner)

    I placed my order and am so grateful for the discount. I want you to tell the owner, I love the products. I recommend them to everyone. I believe LLLT is some of the best medicine someone with pain can have in their own home.

If the battery is depleted, can the pad be operated with the charger? Or is it necessary to wait until the battery is charged again? Ed asked on February 5, 2023

The Flex Pad must be unplugged to turn on. Therefore, if you have depleted the battery charge, we recommend you charge the device fully for 2-4 hours before using the device again.

How effective is this on the area around an artificial hip? Is it ok to use with a titanium hip replacement? Carol Poupore asked on January 18, 2023

Hello Carol! Our flex devices are safe and effective to use for treatment of pain, where applied. Therefore, they should be equally effective if used near the artificial hip implant. Our devices have not been specifically tested for use on titanium hip replacements or other artificial implants. However, we had customers with same/similar condition, that had positive results using our pain devices. If you have any medical questions or concerns, we recommend you contact your physician prior to use.

My flex pad stopped working after 2 months (lights no longer turn on). The light on the battery pack is blue when I press the power button. Help? Jason asked on December 6, 2022

Hi Jason, the Flex Pad does have a 1-year warranty. Since the blue light typically indicates there is a charge on the battery but you are seeing no red lights (the infrared lights are invisible to the human eye so it will appear as if not all the lights are on) then the best option would be to contact our customer service team. Please reach out directly to support@ledtechnologies.com
