Total Treatment area covered in a lifetime

Because there is no overlap required, each shot covers 1.33cm x 3cm = 4cm sq

Approx. 40 mins for lower legs

This figure is unknown as there is no information with the Rio 60 about needing to replace a bulb or battery. From this I would assume that it's lifetime is endless!

Because there is no overlap required, each shot covers 2cm x 3cm area = 6cm sq

Approx. 25 mins for lower legs 

Battery Lifetime: 15cm Squared x 250 = 3750cm Squared.[i.e an area just over 61 cm long x 61 cm wide]
