Hospital style n-UVB Phototherapy Cabinet with 24 Philips TL01 311nm tubes

(4 customer reviews)



This Hospital style n-UVB Phototherapy Cabinet is designed to replicate the cabinets used in Hospitals and Dermatology centres to offer the same Phototherapy treatment in your home.

Narrowband UVB  or n-UVB Phototherapy is a well established treatment for Psoriasis and Vitiligo. UVB therapy was developed in the late 1970’s and since then has been researched, refined and enhanced into a treatment regime which is globally recognised and practiced within the medical profession. Here in the UK, almost all NHS Trusts will operate a Dermatology Centre which will offer Narrowband UVB (n-UVB) Phototherapy. As prescribed by NICE and the British Association of Dermatologists, n-UVB Phototherapy has long been established as the second line of treatment for Psoriasis when Topical treatments prove ineffective.

Almost all NHS Trusts in the UK will have their own Dermatology centre offering n-UVB Phototherapy. Your Doctor, GP or Dermatologist will refer you for treatment. The majority of our customers have actually experienced n-UVB phototherapy through this referral process but all of them come to us to replicate the therapy for the same reasons.

  • The referral process takes a long time, up to 2 years in several of our local NHS Trusts, but a 6 month wait time for treatment seems to be the minimum around the country.
  • Once you have had a course of n-UVB Phototherapy and your condition clears, you will have to go back to the start of the referrals process should your condition recur.
  • n-UVB Phototherapy is extremely effective but requires rigorous adherence to the treatment schedule for a period of 4-8 weeks before you start to see results. In practice this means attending a dermatology centre between 3-5 times per week for 8 consecutive weeks. I’ve yet to speak to anyone who has not found this incredibly disruptive, by contrast, treatment at home enables you to manage your condition as part of your daily routine.

These Hospital style Cabinets are designed to replicate the treatment provided in Hospitals and Dermatology Centres. Step into the Cabinet for 360 degree coverage delivered by 24 x 6ft UVB Philips TL01 medical narrow band tubes. Designed for installation in a domestic setting these Cabinets are powered by a 13 amp UK plug and do not require the 3 Phase power supply that the Hospital units run on.

Having either been prescribed or, in many cases, having experienced Narrowband UVB therapy in the NHS, our customers come to us to replicate the treatment that they have received.

None of our competitors offer the extensive range of UVB devices that we offer to mirror treatment regimes in Private & Public healthcare practice.

Customers who have been prescribed or experienced UVB Phototherapy in the NHS in recent years will recognise that the n-UVB light therapy is well established and highly effective. However, the treatment requires absolute consistency. In order to be effective, typically, light therapy requires exposure to n-UVB light for very short periods of time (between 30 seconds and a maximum of 4 minutes) 2-3 times each week, over period of 8 weeks or more.

If the prescribed regime is not followed rigorously (i.e. consecutive sessions are missed) the results are drastically less effective. With long waiting lists for NHS treatment and limited resources, some health care trusts will caution patients that they will not be able to offer treatment if appointments are missed. UVB Phototherapy at home enables patients to schedule treatment sessions at their own convenience in their own homes. No time off work, transport costs, parking charges to attend hospital sessions.

Home UVB light therapy enables you to easily and effectively manage your condition, which, in turn, will change your quality of life.

What are the benefits of n-UVB Phototherapy at home?

If you have spoken to your Dermatologist and they have recommended you as a candidate for narrowband UVB light therapy, a n-UVB unit from MBS can offer the following benefits:

  • You do not have to attend appointments at a care centre 2-3 times per week for 4-8 weeks. With our units, your treatment is delivered in the comfort of your own home.
  • Rigorous adherence to the treatment schedule is critical to how effective light treatment is. With our units, you can easily choose a time which suits your schedule, for example after a morning shower or an evening bath.
  • Stress is recognised as a key “trigger” for Psoriasis.  Our UVB light therapy units will enable you to stick to the treatment schedule with ease, whilst improving how effective the therapy will be. Access to therapy without the worry of attending appointments will undoubtably reduce your stress which in turn will reduce the possibility of stress affecting your condition for the worse. This breaks a circle of anxiety which could lead to further exacerbation of your condition.
  • A phototherapy unit from MBS will enable you to manage your condition yourself in your own free time. No time off work or adjusting your busy daily schedule to make the appointments at the hospital. Regular attendance at a hospital 2 to 3 times per week is a difficult schedule to adhere to from a purely practical perspective.
  • We often hear from our clients that Dermatology units in Hospitals are often a long way away from where they live. Factoring in commuting, parking costs and the commute times to their appointments often makes a compelling reason for hiring UVB light therapy equipment to gain the same therapeutic benefit.

To help you better understand the benefits of UBV Light Therapy Home Hire, we think it’s important to understand the alternative processes for accessing n-UVB Phototherapy via the NHS and Privately.

  • To access phototherapy via the NHS you need to speak to your GP who will follow a Primary Care process for the management of your condition & will then then refer you to a Dermatologist.
  • If a Dermatologist offers narrowband UVB phototherapy as a treatment, you will be invited to attend appointments at a dermatology centre 2 -3 times per week.
  • However, there can be a long hospital waiting list for access to UVB phototherapy treatment, up to 6 months in some areas between the referral from your Dermatologist to access to the n-UVB therapy at the care centre.
  • The fastest way to access Phototherapy is via Private Medical care. A consultation with a Dermatologist in a Private Medical practice will inevitably result in the swiftest route to care and treatment. However, there are some obvious downsides:
    • Cost – Consultations and treatment are not free unless covered by Medical Insurance. The cost of 1 treatment with phototherapy is usually over £50. A 4-8 week course of treatments could cost in excess of £1000.
    • Attendance at a care centre for treatment – You will still have to attend appointments at a dermatology care centre 2-3 times per week.

4 reviews for Hospital style n-UVB Phototherapy Cabinet with 24 Philips TL01 311nm tubes

  1. David Sung

    I received my cabinet in September and now see great result. Thank you Kevin and MBS for communication of shipping and speed delivering the cabinet to Hong Kong when we have so much trouble with COVID.

  2. Jerome Hathaway

    Like the other reviewer, John, I was sceptical as the unit is very expensive. Kevin at MBS did try to explain that a large part of the cost was down to the number and quality of the Philips TL01 tubes. I was still not totally convinced, but I have had UVB treatment in hospital so bit the bullet and bought. I am so glad that I did! I bought the cabinet Mid April at the height of the COVID crisis after a face-time consultation with my Dermatologist. MBS delivered in 10 days despite the lockdown & furlough problems. I’m now seeing great results. No more 30 mile round trip journeys to the Hospital to make my phototherapy appointments for me! Thank you for your help and advice Kevin.

  3. John Hunter

    It seems a lot of money to spend and initially I was a bit sceptical although I had previously underatken light treatment at the hospital and it had worked well. I’m pleased to say this has worked just as well without all the hassle of hospital appointments. So I just want to say thanks.

  4. Gordon Flower

    I had the unit delivered in December and I used it over the Xmas period and into January. I can’t believe the difference it’s made. I had bad psoriasis over several areas of my body now (with the exception of one or two very small patches around my knees – which I’m working on) it’s all clear !
    It’s made such a big difference to my life, thank you very much. Would highly recommend both the cabinet and MBS.
