How to use the Sperti Phototherapy Device

The Sperti device comes with instructions. Please read and follow those instructions.

I position the Sperti so that the vertical midpoint of the bulbs (arrow) aligns with the vertical midpoint of my torso, which is halfway between the bottom of my neck and the top of my thighs. I then do 5 minutes on the front and then 5 minutes on the back, standing about 15 inches away from it. And I do this daily. People with fare skin and no tan may need to do less than 5 minutes for a while, and maybe every other day for a while. And if you don't want to bother with those goggles, you can close your eyes and cover them with your hands when irradiating your front. If you instead wear the goggles, also close your eyes.

Once a person has acclimated to the Sperti, if the person has dark toned skin or is very low in D, they may want to do the above twice a day, about 12 hours apart.

If you don't like the bell sounding when the timer runs out (not necessary because you're standing right there and can easily tell when the ticking stops), if you're handy, you can take the bottom of the case apart (3 screws) and place a glob of silicon caulk on the bell, and that will muffle it.

If all bulbs don't light up when you first turn it on, this may be because one or more of the bulbs is not properly seated. It's sad that the company doesn't have more diligent workers installing the bulbs. To remedy this, reach through the front silver grill, and with your fingers, turn a bulb a little bit in each direction until you feel it click in place. If a bulb is already seated properly, turning it will be difficult at first, and you will feel it "pop" out of place. Not to worry, just turn it back until it clicks back in place. All bulbs should look the same when all the bulbs are seated properly (the writing on all the bulbs will face you the same way).
