AbstractA light rays radiation cloth for medical treatment comprises a flexible basic sheet plate, a large number of optical fibers arranged on one surface of the basic sheet plate, and a light rays connector for supplying light rays to the optical fibers. The optical fibers comprise respectively a light rays emitting portion for emitting the light rays transmitted through the optical fibers to the outside of the same at the half way points of the light rays transmitting route. The light rays are emitted almost uniformly from one surface of the basic sheet plate.
