Laser Therapy System - RianCorp LTU-904
Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT is the treatment of various conditions using laser to effect a photochemical reaction at a cellular level. The laser light penetrates into tissue where it is absorbed by cells and converted into energy that influences the course of metabolic process. Low level laser therapy does NOT heat tissue.
The LTU-904 is an infrared laser operating at a wavelength of 904 nanometers. This invisible wavelength penetrates up to 2cms into tissue.
The unit is a hand-held battery powered treatment device, is non thermal and delivers a controlled series of 200ns bursts of pulses of 904nm laser beam.
This is in the near infrared spectrum that is invisible to the human eye.
Why Low Level Laser is Beneficial for Lymphoedema
- enables the restoration of lymphatic drainage due to stimulation of new lymphatic pathways
- enables the restoration of drainage through reduction of fibrosis and scarring of tissues
- enables the reduction in tissue fluid accumulation through changes in blood flow, either directly via an effect of blood vessels or by neural regulation of vessels in the limb
Other Benefits of LLT
Low Level Laser is extensively used to promote wound healing, muscular /skeletal pain relief and a wide variety of other conditions with varying levels of supporting clinical evidence.
