Light is essential to life, and it has the power to help relieve pain. LED Light Therapy can treat pain without the need for expensive or addictive narcotics. Hospital stays can be shorter, patients are more comfortable, and chronic pain is greatly reduced.
Light Therapy is currently approved for chronic pain relief, relieving stiffness, promoting relaxation of muscle tissue and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where applied. Commonly used devices in light therapy include light emitting diodes (LEDs), lasers, fluorescent lamps or very bright full-spectrum light.
The science is sound, and funded by two decades of NASA-partnered clinical research. Cellular mitochondria produce the energy and intercellular communications necessary for regular repair and overall cell health.
Using the energy of light to enhance a cell's normal biochemistry is a paradigm shift in the modern approach to medicine. In vitro studies have shown that cellular mitochondria have an enzyme able to absorb the energy in light, and use it as a catalyst for greater and more efficient production of cellular energy. The key is to generate the right wavelength of light at a sufficient power level, and do it safely. Laser technology is risky - not so with LEDs. With a properly designed LED such as QBMI’s investigational device, there is no excessive heat, the light will not harm cells or tissues and treatment takes a fraction of the time compared to other LED devices.
QBMITM PhotoMedicine is a leader in the medical paradigm shift to the use of LED light in healing. QBMI is developing and testing technology to deliver powerful therapeutic doses of monochromatic light in a short time period, without harming tissue, to provide pain relief and wound healing. We have a tradition of rigorous research regarding the effects of photon energy on oral mucositis, wound healing and general pain relief.
