The Handy Pulse Laser device is a hand-held, therapeutic medical device useful for pain management and to help facilitate functional restoration and improvement.
The laser devices are designed to be used by patients under the direction of medical specialists
Our Handy Pulse Laser was recently featured in a video from the Lymphoedema Training Academy, where director Jane Wigg touches upon the benefits of low level laser therapy for lymphoedema patients.
Our Handy Pulse Laser device uses photobiomodulation to reduce pain and inflammation by delivering light energy to the mitochondria (the power source for cells). This function is beneficial to lymphoedema patients because the laser diode and LEDs reduce oxidative stress and aid the cause of the swelling, not just the symptoms. With consistent use, this can result in improvements to tissue repair and inflammation. The device is recommended to be used directly over nodes/nodal areas, scar tissues or thicker lymph areas.
Low Level Laser therapy (LLLT) is the treatment of various conditions using laser to bring about 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 processes.
The LTU-904 by RianCorp is used in contact with the skin, directly on scar tissue, muscles or fibrotic tissue. Treatment time is usually 1 minute per point.
The LTU-904's patented diffusion technology allows it to be classified as a Class 1 laser product which is considered safe in all conditions. No special safety requirements such as safety glasses or a controlled environment is required. Individual treatment protocols are available for a range of conditions
