Who developed the first Tanning Bed?

History of Wolff Tanning Beds

Sometime in the early 1970's a German scientist preformed a new study about indoor UV light. He wanted to study the effects of UV light use on athletes. Friedrich Wolff used artificial light from indoor tanning lamps on athletes. He wanted to know how more exposure to sunlight would affect the performance of the athletes.

Initially, the purpose would have studied the amount of vitamin D athletes absorbed. If his theory were correct, more daily vitamin D from exposure to UV rays would have meant better performance by athletes. What he discovered was the bonus effect of UV light, a healthy glowing tan.

So thanks to Wolff and his scientific discoveries, we are able to enjoy tanning beds and the benefits of getting more vitamin D through the convenience of indoor tanning.

*Today Wolff Tanning Beds represent the elite in indoor commercial and residential tanning!
