High-Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is a device which produces coherent light of one (or more) specific wavelength. A laser carries energy up to which spread through the tissue and can be used to treat inflamed, torn or otherwise damaged or infected tissue in which it speeds up healing, recovery and reduces pain. The process through which laser heals the damaged tissue is called photobiostimulation.
- Maximum power 50 times higher than in conventional laser
- Unique wavelength of 1064nm
- Penetration depth up to 10 centimeters into the tissue
- Extremely effective in healing acceleration and pain management
- Designed for the use in sports medicine, orthopedics, and rehabilitation
- Photoacoustic waves (analgesic) stimulate free nerve endings in the tissue and cause nearly instantaneous pain relief in the area.
- Biostimulation stimulates the organism on a cellular level to enhance healing and recovery. Thermic effect of high-intensity laser therapy is caused by absorption of the 1065nm laser beam in the superficial structures which consequently causes a temperature increase in the tissue.
- The thermic effect also causes vasodilation, which leads to blood perfusion increase a larger amount of oxygen, and more metabolites resorbed.
