How We Got Here


Developing PhotoMed’s Therapy

PhotoMed’s team began developing its then experimental therapy in 2000. Testing in clinics and studies focused on finding who might benefit and how quickly. The studies welcomed people unexpected to improve. Many improved!


PhotoMed’s Tools Recorded Details Surrounding the Moment When Healing Resumed

PhotoMed’s team invented tools that let them observe and measure responses to each treatment using PhotoMed’s therapy. Our Rapid Discovery System™ platform recorded details in real-time surrounding previously unseen events. The recordings helped us make PhotoMed’s therapy more effective and efficient.


Opening New Areas of Study and Care

18-years of recorded data reveal the return toward normal function for previously unresponsive pain and impairments.

Our recorded data invite and help to answer new questions. Our  Rapid Discovery System can save time and money making the next big discoveries. Contact PhotoMed to discuss your project needs.



Here are some of the impairments that responded to PhotoMed's therapy:


Sensory impairments

  • Loss of sensation in fingers or toes
