NASA technology in the Richway Biomat
The ability of mineral oxides to generate infrared ray waves was discovered by NASA. The Biomat technology harnesses specific minerals, fabrics and ceramics to convert energy into beneficial infrared ray waves. The Biomat’s advanced technological materials also emit negative ions that energize and refresh the human body.
The Amethyst Biomat is a unique innovation in biotechnology that consists of 17 layers:
- Surface material: silicon urethane with cotton
- Amethyst (with tourmaline): transfers to natural far infrared rays
- Top waterproof layer
- Hyron cotton layer for thermal insulation
- Second waterproof layer
- Negative ion generator
- Super fiber layer for far infrared rays
- First fiber glass layer (For interception of harmful EMF waves)
- Carbon layer for amplifying far infrared rays
- First urethane layer for protection and reflection
- Solid square cotton padding layer
- Second fiber glass layer (prevents overheating and harmful EMF waves)
- EMF protected heating plate with thermostats and bi-metals
- Second urethane layer for protection and reflection
- Concentrated ceramic layer for reflection of far infrared rays
- Hyron silk cotton padding layer for thermal insulation
- Bottom material: high quality cotton with brass pattern
Advanced IC Chip
The new Biomat 7000mx controller has an advanced IC chip that controls electromagnetic waves, protecting you from the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation.
Unlike an electric blanket, the Richway Biomat does not immediately get hot when it is turned on. When you lie on the mat, the pad and your body warm as the infrared waves penetrate deep into your body. Far infrared rays penetrate six inches and benefit blood vessels, organs and lymph glands.
Electromagnetic protection and interception
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are invisible electric and magnetic fields that radiate from electrical devices. All electrical appliances and lines create EMF. Electromagnetic fields disrupt human cellular functioning and create imbalances and disease.
The Biomat EMF interceptor
The Biomat 7000MX controller acts as an EMF interceptor that behaves similar to a electric lightning rod. The EMF interceptor safely conducts the negative EMF away from you into ground. This feature blocks your exposure to EMF, offering you and your family protection from these harmful fields. Electric blankets and other infrared devices do not offer the advanced EMF protection of the Biomat 7000MX. Don’t risk your health on heating pad or imitation infrared mat.
Richway amethyst Biomat and the healing power of far infrared
Infrared rays provide a deep penetrating warmth and help to relax tense muscles. The infrared rays in the Amethyst Biomat are the same rays that are found in warming sunshine. The deep warmth of the infrared soothes aching joints and muscles. The Biomat 7000MX can also raise the internal body temperature, helping to stimulate the immune system. Long sessions on the mat can induce a toxin-eliminating sweat. Your overall health, vitality and resistance to disease will be strengthened.
The gentle warmth of infrared has been described as deeply nourishing and relaxing, and can soothe stress and knotted muscles. You will feel rejuvenated and renewed, calm in body and mind.
The highest quality amethyst crystals
The Biomat Professional contains 28 pounds of the highest quality amethyst! Amethyst crystals produce far-infrared rays (FIR). FIR revitalizes the biological functions of cells, helping to promote blood circulation, perspiration, relief from neuralgia, backaches, arthritis and eliminate toxins. Far infrared rays also help to relax and nourish the body, promote antibacterial functions and purify the air.
Life-giving negative ions
The Biomat generates negative ions. Negative ions are found in abundance in forests and around waterfalls. There is a reason people enjoy these natural environments; negative ions produce biochemical reactions in the body that improve feelings of overall well-being.
The healing power of the amethyst Biomat
The healing benefits of the Richway Amethyst Biomat include:
Eases minor joint pain and stiffness: the deep penetrating warmth offers long lasting relief for joint pain and stiffness.
Reduced stress and fatigue: gentle warmth and relaxing negative ions soothe tense muscles and relax stressed minds. The Biomat will leave you feeling rejuvenated and rested, restored in body and mind.
Skin vitalization: the Biomat aids skin and cellular detoxification through sweating and improved circulation. Improved circulation improves the body’s ability to nourish the skin.
Soothing pain relief: deep heat soothes aching joints, increases circulation and helps to deliver oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles so they recover faster. Injuries and aching muscles recover much faster with just a short session on the Biomat.
Improved circulation: the deep penetrating infrared heat warms the body and forces the heart to work harder pumping blood to boost circulation.
Promotes restful sleep: for those with occasional sleeplessness. The pain relief that many Biomat users experience allows them a deeper, more restful sleep.
Increased tissue oxygen: the Biomat increases circulation to the areas where applied.
Minor muscular back pain: the soothing heat relaxes muscles and can relieve minor muscular back pain.
Supports the immune system: penetrates deep into the body and raises internal body temperatures which act similar to a fever which strengthens your immune system. Elimination of toxins and cellular through sweating improve your overall health and resistance to disease.
Soothes and relaxes: regular use of the Biomat will sooth and relax your body and mind.
Comparisons of normal heat and Biomat infrared rays
Normal heating pads do not use far infrared technology and do not provide the same type of deep healing benefits that the Biomat offers. Infrared technology will be at the forefront of 21st century healing research due to the healing reactions caused by inducing artificial fevers. The Biomat is a truly innovative healing device!
After 5 minutes of using Biomat far infrared rays, the far infrared rays have penetrated deeply.
Improved circulation with Biomat use
Images show poor circulation before (left image) and after 14 days of Biomat use (right image). Note the increase in circulation in the image on the right.
When the body is warm, metabolism rises, blood circulation increases. The circulation of the blood can be likened to the work of a fleet of trucks, some that bring in fresh food and others that take away the trash. The heat from internal organs provides the energy, the heart provides the delivery.

General product questions
What are the differences between the older Biomat 3000MX and the latest Biomat 7000MX?
The Biomat 7000MX is the latest model and contains the Tourmaline Catchpower (TOCA) layer and peach and grape seed layer for additional far infrared and negative ion output. The 7000MX models also use a state of the art, ergonomic controller with added safety features and the latest IC chip.
What is the waterproof pad made of?
The waterproof pad is 100% polyester with an added proprietary coating. This specialized coating is resistant to water. While it is thinner than the previous model of waterproof pad, this version is much denser and more durable thanks to this proprietary special coating.
The waterproof pad repels water while remaining permeable to particles smaller than water. This means that while the waterproof pad is composed of a “synthetic” material, it is designed to allow the Biomat’s beneficial infrared rays and negative ions to easily pass through it and reach the end user.
Your marketing materials says that the Biomat has reduced EMF but the controller still has EMF. Why?
EMF emission is reduced from the mat portion of the Biomat itself. However, the controller will still emit EMF because it is plugged into an electrical source. All appliances that plug into an electrical source will emit some EMF.
The Biomat works in a way in which it does not always require active electricity. When the Biomat is actively heating up to the designated temperature, it is using electricity, which means the controller will emit EMF. Once the Biomat has reached its designated temperature, it stops using electricity, and the EMF emission from the controller will be reduced.
How does the Biomat reduce EMF?
All electrical appliances emit some amount of EMF.
There are a few innovative layers within the Biomat that help to reduce exposure to EMF. The reverse currency heating layer has built in EMF interception. In addition, Richway has incorporated a copper fabric layer, carbon fabric layer, and an exclusive nano copper fabric layer to aid in reducing EMF from the Biomat. The Biomat controller also has a function which pulls EMF from the mat to the ground.
There are a sequence of lights on the Pro/Single/Queen/King Biomat controller called EDNI. What does this stand for?
EDNI stands for electrically discharged negative ions. The EDNI lights flash when negative ions are being electrically produced. These lights turn on automatically once the Biomat has reached its designated temperature.
Does the Biomat have earthing functionality?
No, the Biomat does not function as an earthing mat.
How does the Biomat produce infrared rays and negative ions?
The Biomat uses a combination of fabrics and amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays which are then transferred to the body as heat. The heat comes from friction generated within the body through the effects of far infrared rays. Far infrared rays warm the inside of your body and the part of your body contacting the Biomat. Negative ions are generated electrically and using special components within the Biomat such as the tourmaline catchpower (TOCA) layer.
When did Richway release the 7000MX Biomat model?
The Biomat 7000MX line was released in November 2012.
Why is amethyst primarily used in the Biomat instead of other gems like some other mats?
The Biomat has undergone several iterations since its release in 1998. Jade was first used as a primary natural infrared source. Through years of extensive research and data compilation, Richway found that no other stone comes close to the output that amethyst offers. While other companies use a mixture of various stones and materials to set themselves apart from Richway and even cut costs, Richway only uses what it has found to be the best materials for the Biomat.
In addition to amethyst, all Richway Biomats have a tourmaline layer within them which produces an abundance of negative ions. The Biomat Mini uses black tourmaline gemstones with amethyst which allows it to match the negative ion output of larger mats. Some competitors use tourmaline ceramic beads in their mats. This is a cheaper and less effective alternative to the black tourmaline and black tourmaline fabric used in the Biomat.
I heard that synthetic materials cut the effects of the Biomat. Is this true?
Synthetic materials reduce negative ions. While the Quantum Energy Pad uses microfiber, we also include an additional tourmaline Catchpower (TOCA) layer within it to replenish the negative ions lost. Also, while our waterproof pads are 100% polyester, they are designed to be permeable to molecules smaller than water. Therefore, negative ions and far infrared are easily able to pass through while keeping the Biomat dry.
Is the Biomat King/Queen/Single made of real leather?
No, the brown outer material of the Biomat King/Queen/Single is a synthetic material.
Is the Biomat a disease treatment and/or prevention tool?
The Biomat is classified as a medical device and is a tool to aid in arthritic pain reduction and the temporary increase of blood circulation.
I accidentally fell asleep for a few hours on my Biomat. Am I safe or did I “fry” my internal organs?
It is not possible to fry your internal organs while using the Biomat. We do not recommend using the Biomat at higher heat settings for extended periods of time due to the risk of skin burns.
Biomat product use questions and answers
What is the quilted cotton pad that came with the Biomat for? Do I need to use it?
Yes, the included cotton pad should always be used over the Biomat to evenly disperse the heat and for safety purposes. If the cotton pad or another fabric is not placed directly over the Biomat, the heat may disperse unevenly, and the polyurethane strip of the Biomat will get hot.
This is my first time using the Biomat. What temperature should I set it to?
We recommend new Biomat users start at a low temperature (95°F-104°F). You may wish to increase the temperature gradually based on your comfort level. Be sure to stay hydrated while using the Biomat!
How long can I use the Biomat?
When using the Biomat at higher temperatures (104°F and above), we recommend sessions of up to 40 minutes per day. The Biomat may be used at lower temperature settings at any duration of time. Remember to keep yourself hydrated when using the Biomat, as the infrared heat and sweating may cause dehydration.
Do I need to use the waterproof pad?
We recommend using the waterproof pad to help protect your Biomat from sweat, spills and other accidents. For those who use the Biomat in professional practices or for yoga/meditation, we highly recommend using it to keep the Biomat protected and prolong its life during frequent use.
In what order should I set up the Biomat with the cotton pad and waterproof pad?
Lay the Biomat on a flat surface (floor, bed or massage table) with the crystal ridges facing up and toward you. Place the cotton pad over the Biomat. Finally, place the waterproof pad over the entire setup.
If I put additional layers over the Biomat for added cushioning, will it cut the output of far infrared and negative ions?
Yes, any additional layers over the Biomat and included cotton pad will cut the output of far infrared rays and negative ions depending on the thickness of the added layers. We offer a Quantum Energy Pad (sold separately) for added cushioning. The Quantum Energy Pad is comprised of Bioclay Memory Foam which was designed to allow the Biomat’s far infrared rays to pass through it easily, a tourmaline layer for added negative ions, and a microfiber layer which does not promote the growth of bacteria and dust mites.
How long does it take for the Biomat to reach the designated temperature on the controller?
The Biomat can take anywhere from 1 ½ to 2 hours to reach its designated temperature. There are several factors that can affect this. It is important to place the cotton pad (included with the Biomat) on top to ensure even heat. The higher the temperature is set, the longer it will take to reach it. Lying on the mat or covering it with a blanket while it is heating up may speed up the heating time.
I have a 120V USA Biomat and am traveling to a location that uses 220V power. Can I just purchase a 220V controller to use with my 120V Biomat?
No, both the Biomat and its controller are wired specifically for their designated voltage. Interchanging the two types of controllers may result in user injury or damage to your Biomat. We recommend speaking with an electronics specialist to purchase a voltage step up/step down transformer which is compatible with the specifications listed on the back of your controller and the tag on the back of the Biomat.
Can I interchange different models of controllers with different models of Biomats (i.e. 3000MX controller with 7000MX Biomat)?
No, the models of controllers and Biomats should not be interchanged for safety reasons.
Is it safe to use massage oils on the Biomat?
We recommend against using massage oils while using the Biomat. Biomats damaged by massage oils and other spills are not covered under the warranty.
If you still plan to use oils with the Biomat, we highly recommend purchasing a waterproof pad. We carry waterproof pads for the Biomat Mini and Biomat Professional.
Oils that seep onto the Biomat may damage and wear the internal components of the product. The waterproof pad assists in protecting your Biomat from liquid damage.
Can I use the Biomat on a waterbed?
No, the Biomat should not be used on a waterbed.
Can the Biomat be used on a memory foam mattress/topper?
The Biomat contains a thermal protection layer near the bottom of it to aid in keeping heat from traveling downward, but some heat may still travel down toward the surface it is laying on. We recommend contacting the manufacturer of the mattress/topper to confirm if heat may damage its components. If so, do not use the Biomat on such a surface.
Is there a benefit to using the Biomat without any heat setting?
If the Biomat is turned on without a heat setting selected, it will still actively generate beneficial negative ions.
Biomat manufacturing questions and answers
Where is the Biomat made?
The Biomat is made in South Korea.
The Biomat uses a PTFE (teflon) silicone heating layer, and I have heard that PTFE is not safe. Is this true?
The PTFE in the Biomat is safe. PTFE is non-toxic and stable at temperatures below 400°F. The Biomat does not heat past 158°F, and this layer is well within the Biomat and away from direct contact.
Biomat product care questions and answers
How should I care for my Biomat to keep it in optimal condition?
Always use the included cotton pad over the Biomat. We highly recommend purchasing a waterproof pad for the Mini and Professional Biomat sizes (sold separately) as spillage and accidents may occur. Liquids can damage the internals of the Biomat. The waterproof pad is also helpful in protecting the Biomat from perspiration and massage oils.
If the Biomat has any moisture or perspiration, use a dry towel to wipe it off. Do not leave any moisture on the Biomat after cleaning the product. We recommend wiping the clear window on the Biomat with a damp, clean cloth once a month to maintain good condition. The included cotton pad should be washed at least once a week. It is machine washable with cold water.
Store the Biomat lying flat (not folded) and in a well-ventilated area. If you must fold the Biomat, do so the same way as you received it. Folding it in the opposite direction may cause the internal circuitry to break.
I just received my Biomat, and the alarm light/158°F light on the controller is flashing and not operational. What do I do?
When the alarm light or 158°F light flashes on the controller, this can indicates that the connection going into the Biomat is not pushed in all the way or secure. Disconnect the Biomat from the power source. Place the Biomat on a solid, flat surface. Reconnect the connector into the Biomat with one hand holding the plastic cap on the mat. Reconnect the power and test the mat. If you are still experiencing issues, please call our customer service center at 1-855-338-6410.
My pet had an accident on the Biomat. Is there anything I can do to clean the Biomat and reduce/eliminate the smell?
The Biomat is an electrical appliance, therefore, it cannot be submerged in water. We recommend mixing a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Submerge a clean cloth into the solution and wring it out so it is damp, not soaking wet. With the damp cloth, dab the surface of the Biomat and repeat this process (always ensure the Biomat is unplugged when doing this). Finally, leave the Biomat in the sun to dry. If possible, while drying in the sun, turn the Biomat on to the highest temperature.

learned about the Biomat from Marilyn my massage therapist. I’ve been seeing her for my back and neck pain and my general difficulty sleeping due to pain and stress. On a treatment visit I discovered something different about her massage. I asked her what was different and she mention she was now treating her patients on the Biomat. I asked her all about it and she offered a demo for a week. After one week I was able to sleep all through the night. I also noted a sharp reduction in pain. I purchased the Biomat right away. After six months I’m sleeping deeply throughout the night and my neck feels better. Before the Biomat I couldn’t look straight up at the ceiling from a standing position. Now, I can look straight up, pain free.
Until I first tried the amethyst Biomat in November 2005, I relied on physical therapy and analgesics to control the pain I endured from multiple injuries I suffered over 25 years as an ironworker. I was unable to move my head from side to side without turning my upper body. Every joint in my body ached. My sister had given me the Biomat and Alkal-Life water unit to use in September 2005, but I was skeptical. She finally convinced me to try the mat for my pain for a week and report back to her. Each day I seemed to be getting better. I started slow and easy as she recommended and at the end of the week I was doing an hour daily on the red setting. After a few days of this, I noticed that every injury I had suffered while working iron surfaced, then gradually disappeared. I use oxygen tanks daily. The Richway amethyst Biomat seemed to help my breathing. After the first week, I decided to hook up the Alkal-Life water unit. I began with an 8.5 pH. Instantly, I felt my brain clear. I guess I was getting more oxygen. I have been using the Biomat a few times a week and drinking alkaline water daily. I am now pain free (I no longer need physical therapy and analgesics). I have more energy. I still require oxygen occasionally when I overexert myself. I used to feel “disabled” and useless. My life is now fuller than I imagined it could ever be at my age. The Biomat and Alkal-Life Water System have greatly improved my life.”
