­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Could this non-invasive device relieve your 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 Medicine.

He found blue wavelengths to stimulate nerves.

The effects for wavelengths in-between have still not been widely studied.


How could a few photons prompt the body to do what it had been trying to - for years?

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

Is it neuroplasticity? Quantum entanglement? Your best guess?


The team asked a basic question.

Could 1, 2, or a sequence of wavelengths relieve treatment-resistant pain?

PhotoMed’s skeptical team did what Silicon Valley software engineers do. They developed data-centric tools to find out. They thought that by-the-second data might show that something special was going on.

Fixed wavelength devices work great for specific disorders, such as red for musculoskeletal or inflammation. Blue stimulates nerves and may have anti-microbial effects in wounds. Access to all visible wavelength, a few at a time, may increase the likelihood of finding ones that work.

Real-time recordings from PhotoMed’s Instant Verification System™ blew past everyone’s imagination. More on that later. See end of page. LINK


 

What will patients see?

 

For example, watch the variation of green (560nm) through yellow (600nm) wavelengths of the light being applied to a leg wound via PhotoMed’s Vari-Chrome® Pro.

Have you ever seen fresh exudates enter a wound?

Could the therapy help everyone?

No.

500+ people with treatment-resistant pain or impaired functions volunteered in studies to find out. Many arrived with multiple disorders. The disorders could respond independently with improved function and pain relief, or not.

The studies included nearly everyone despite having no expectation of improvement. It took years to fail in only 2 out of 3 cases.

 
The therapy works close to right away, typically a symptomatic physiological response can be detected within 2 minutes. Otherwise, besides disappointment, nothing happens.

Patients in 1 of 3 cases reported significant improvement.

We’re still trying to reduce the failure rate below 2 out of 3 cases of treatment-resistant pain or impairments.


When will it work?

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

Success in PhotoMed’s studies was judged by when a physiological response marks improving impaired functions.

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

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

That efficiency translates to needing only 2 visits with no response to detect probable failure for that disorder. Of course, some disorders take a bit longer, such as inflammation.

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 might be time to quit.


… More on that later.

“Raymond’s hands had felt cold for 30 years. His co-workers complained that he liked the room too warm for their comfort. His hands warmed to the first test of therapy during 3 visits. His hands normalized to the comfort of his co-workers.

Thermal imaging of a physiological response that marked the resolution of persistently cold hands and discomfort.

The responses appeared to be too fast and too large. Textbooks couldn’t help for they only told why the pain was expected to remain. It took 18-years of examining the data to satisfy the nerdy skeptics that the responses appear to be entirely ordinary.

Volunteers suggested the term “return-to-normal” function.
