VETERINARY LASER THERAPY

 

Laser therapy has been used for decades in various forms to treat both humans and pets.  The processes of laser therapy are well documented, but the viability of the therapy is often questioned because of a lack of scientific process.  Asking a patient if they feel any effect or improvement is only a subjective process, fraught with placebo effect and a lack of scientific proof. It is also not possible to ask a dog how it feels, but only observe how it acts.  There are thousands of studies of the efficacy of laser therapy, often biased towards successful reports. 

When approached to reproduce a laser therapy device for a client, we first asked the question as to why we would want to reproduce something that is already manufactured?  We then asked the client if the buttons and displays on the product were useful during treatment, and how the treatment data and results were recorded.  It seemed that the device was not that useful, although the effectiveness of the treatment was "apparent" according to the therapists. 

ART established a laser therapy system that provides the scientific feedback required to demonstrate the effectiveness of laser therapy processes, whether they be used for pain therapy, reducing inflamation, wound healing or other processes.

  • The laser units, offered in 2 x 500mW infrared outputs, contain no buttons or indicators on the laser unit itself, given that these are not accessible during treatment.
  • Other wavelengths in the red and at lower power (for open wound treatments and to increase surface blood flow) are offered, as well as green laser systems for treatment of skin surface lesions and scars). 
  • The laser units are controlled using low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to control all functions, and record all available parameters of the lasers, such as battery status, laser power setting, battery temperatures, laser temperatures and also the serial numbers and wavelengths. 
  • The lasers are coupled to Android tablets or phones, which demand input of therapist and patient (or pet) information for recording purposes.
  • The tablets integrate the laser control, information recording, as well as photographic operations from the tablet for recording the patient (or pet).
  • Additional accessories such as Infrared Imaging cameras are used to obtain thermal images of the patient to identify sites for treatment, and also to measure the efficacy of the treatment after the process.  There is no point in asking a dog or a horse if it feels better.
  • Further diagnostics including patient or pet posture recognition are proposed, to record improvements in movement or posture and compare those measurements before and after treatment.

Applied Resolution Technologies has established a range of VETERINARY LASER THERAPY systems that combine smART Laser technology, remote Bluetooth control via Android devices, and infrared imaging technologies for diagnostics of treatment.
