How feasible to make cluster of red and IR LEDs? Answered

​hey! I'm very interested in putting together a cluster of both red and IR LEDs for skin rejuvenation, and pain relief (I'm disabled and have back and joint pain).

The medical devices for sale online are around $250 - $400. Should I pursue this DIY project or bite the bullet and fork over the money?

I have NO electrical skills, but this just seems like something that should be doable!!

Feedback plz :-)

RED and IR LEDs will do nothing for your back and joints. Don't waste your money and don't waste your time. Talk to your doctor and get the facts on these devices.

They don't do anything for your skin, either. If warmth eases the pain, use one of those microwave pillows.
