PhotoMed Technologies Team

Allan Gardiner, Founder & CEO


PhotoMed is all about serving people who previously had no path forward.

My family and I founded PhotoMed and patient-centered studies as an engineering-style project. We rolled up our sleeves and invented tools to record the steps taken to prompt resumption of innate functions.

17 years of recorded data reveal the body's exquisite ability to restore itself. We are humbled to recognize that the astounding responses merely mark the delayed conclusion of an "stuck" experience. We're grateful for the many volunteers who helped us develop our non-invasive solution.

The short time to observe a response, seconds to minutes, is a key to the success of PhotoMed's outcome-based methods.

We introduce the term "return-toward-normal" function to describe an objectively measurable physiologic response that marks the desired outcome; normal function, called homeostasis.

Once returned to normal, the function and associated pain relief can continue for a lifetime, or less if there are biomechanical reasons.
