In PhotoMedicine, the critical element is the energy of the light itself, and how that light can be delivered effectively. In developing an effective light therapy technology, the main factors include:
- Emitting light in the most optimal part of the spectrum for effective relief of pain.
- Delivering enough light energy for the tissue to absorb.
- Creating a device that is safe and easy to use without special training.
- Developing a consistent, well-defined dosimetry that can predictably produce results
Only LED technology meets all of these parameters. Whereas most people may think lasers are the most advanced form of light technology, in reality, lasers are difficult to use and not nearly as as effective as LEDs when it comes to producing a photobiomodulation effect.
