Preparation and Research of Iatric Fiber with Far Infrared Ray Radiation Function
Many kinds of jewelries and ceramic could emit far-infrared rays (FIR) when subjected to the body temperature. Reported works show that FIR have some effects on human body, especially on skin, blood circulation, and skin cell vitalizing. In this study, we tried to use pearl and Panax Notoginseng powder in nanoscale as ingredients to add in viscose fiber and investigate whether this new fiber has benign regulative action on human microcirculation. SEM scanner was used to study the distribution and mean diameter of the particles in fiber. 30 graduates were chosen as subjects and divided into two groups. They used the arm sleeves either impregnated or not impregnated with pearl and Panax Notoginseng powder for 30min/an hour, and were tested the nail-fold microcirculation change. Experimental data showed a much larger improvement of nail-fold microcirculation while using arm sleeves impregnated with pearl and Panax Notoginseng powder than pure cotton arm sleeves. Experimental results are provided to demonstrate the new type iatric fiber with pearl and Panax Notoginseng powder has the capability of biological modulation.
