A Star Wars-looking laser means nothing in the clinical application of laser therapy
As with humans, outward appearances aren’t everything in lasers; nor are the bells, whistles, and futuristic, space-age appeal that some exhibit. In reality, what counts is what’s found inside the machine.
Results that Matter
The likelihood of a laser producing the results you want in the shortest timeframe possible comes down largely to:
- the numbers of its peak and average powers
- the depth of tissue penetration
- the pulse rates
Oftentimes, when a laser-purchasing decision is on the table, those numbers are nowhere to be found in the sales materials. Even when they are present, the offered interpretation may not comply with the principles of physics!
Looks can be Deceiving
With the proliferation of the therapeutic laser in the US market since 1999, models have morphed into all shapes and sizes—floor models, hand-held and portable versions with screens that talk to you and tell you how to treat a standardized patient. And, some really do have the look and feel of R2-D2, but without the necessary power or effectiveness.
Experience that Counts
When laser expert, Dr. Nelson Marquina, worked for NASA, he recognized that his mission was to advance humanity through technology. When he “met” laser therapy, he reviewed the research, designed clinical studies, and then partnered with a manufacturer to co-design lasers with the highest therapeutic value at the most reasonable prices in the laser therapy market—the Lumix superpulsed laser.
Laser Quality and Powers Rule
Lumix superpulsed lasers are scientifically proven to have the highest peak and average power wattage in the industry. Those powers, combined with a high pulse rate, are able to send waves of healing light coursing through the human (or animal) body, focused with the necessary depths of penetration to regenerate tissue and reduce pain and inflammation – safely and gently.
Sound like something you might expect to see on a classic Star Wars’ episode? Safe and gentle relief and repair are results that can be experienced today with the Lumix superpulsed laser.
If you would like to learn more about lasers, and how they can superpulse your practice, check our seminar and webinar offerings. To experience the capabilities of Lumix lasers, call today to schedule a free demo at 877.423.6169.
No one wants to be sold a laser that doesn’t produce the desired clinical results–at any price—even if it does look like R2-D2 and rekindles fond memories of a galaxy far, far away.
