­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Could this non-invasive device help your patients with treatment-resistant pain?

150 years ago, red light was found to relieve musculoskeletal pain and impairments.

In 1903, Dr. Finsen was awarded a Nobel Prize for his use of blue light. He found blue light to stimulate nerves.

Wavelengths (pure colors from the rainbow) in between have been less studied.

Curiously, the “right” wavelength could prompt a seemingly impossible recovery from long-standing pain and impaired functions. Or, do nothing.

As nerdy engineers, we don’t have a clue why. Neither do our advisory anesthesiologists or neurologists.

Is it neuroplasticity? Quantum entanglement? Your best guess?


PhotoMed’s team started with novel questions.

Does the body need one, two, or a sequence of wavelength to resume its normal functions?

Could varying the wavelength during therapy increase the likelihood of success for your patients?

You can find out by using PhotoMed’s Vari-Chrome® Pro.

What will your patients see?

For example, watch the variation of green (560nm) through yellow (600nm) wavelengths of the light being applied to a leg wound.

Does it work?

To find out if it works, PhotoMed’s team invented the Instant Verification System™.

During a single visit, 282+ visible wavelengths could be tested, a few at a time.

Success was judged by when the person’s impairments improved.

In about 2 minutes, you can observe a physiological response, or not, to each procedure. That’s 1000x faster than conventional testing of medications, but with the same logic.

That’s important for the patient and practitioner. For treatment-resistant pain and impairments, the therapy fails in 2 out of 3 cases. Patients in the 1 of 3 cases report significant improvement.

Recording visits in real-time captured mountains of raw data. The data led to PhotoMed’s Triple 2 algorithm. The algorithm help operators of the Vari-Chrome® Pro become more effective and efficient.

That data might also help answer questions waiting to be asked. Like the early images from the Hubble Space Telescope.


You may be wondering how the operator can “see” cold hands and their improved functions. Thermal imaging using the Instant Verification System™ supports real-time monitoring of possible responses AND the recording for later examination.

What do the responses look like?

The Instant Verification System™ lets the operator prompt and document physiological responses to therapy. You can export de-identified recordings for your patients to tell the “rest of their story”.

“Robert’s” hands had been uncomfortably cold for 30 years. His renewed comfort and ability to cool and rewarm continued for more than a year after 3 visits with warming each time.


When will it work?

As software engineers, we do not get why you must wait so long for outcomes.

This may seem crazy. But Silicon Valley thinking lives in real-time, not ice ages.

Vari-Chrome® Pro operators will be brought up to speed on how to use PhotoMed’s Triple 2 Algorithm. The algorithm also lets you know when it may be time to quit.

PhotoMed’s Triple 2 Algorithm improves the efficiency of therapy using the   Vari-Chrome® Pro   alone or with the   Instant Verification System  ™. It’s easier to detect a failure to respond than to measure success for treatment-resistant pain or functional impairments.
