THE TIME MACHINE INFRARED LASER
This is a gentle low level therapy that is highly effective using lasers to improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist or technician, treatments take about 8 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week. TTML Laser has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain.
Over 400 randomized clinical trials have been published on TTML Laser, half of which are on pain. The most important wavelength is in the range of 800 to 850nm with the peak around 810nm. This is the best wavelength to get a combination of deeper penetration and cellular interaction. Lasers in this range are the optimized to interact with the mitochondria and they trigger an activation of Cytochrome C Oxidase and Adenosine Tri-Phosphate, two key chemicals required in the healing process. This begins a cascade of important events that causes the release of Adenosine Triphosphate, Nitric Oxide and growth factors required in the healing process. About 70% of the therapy lasers on the market operate in this range.
At the Infrared 810nm level, the delivered photons are at the Spectrum’s “Optical Window” for maximally effective tissue penetration for photobiomodulation and photobiostimulation, and do not have significant absorption interference by the tissue chromophores of hemoglobin and melanin. Our Laser was designed to be able to provide photons (packets of electromagnetic energy) that deliver light energy to our tissues, in such a manner that they do not heat the tissue that could cause a burn or ablation of the cells. Rather, they warm the cells to a level just enough to promote cellular photobiostimulation.
