Developing PhotoMed’s Triple 2 Algorithm

 A basic assumption

Which is your assumption about chronic pain and impairments?

Do the 100 million Americans with chronic pain appear to confirm the notion that “chronic pain will last forever”?

Do studies about “managing” pain preclude ending the pain? A possible clue, does the “placebo effect” ruin studies costing billions of dollars?


For practitioners

You can guess that PhotoMed’s team follows the more optimistic assumption. We weren’t the only ones.

"Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity." Hippocrates (460BC - 370BC)


Early testing of PhotoMed’s therapy had a good, but not great, batting average. Achieving relief could take hours over 5 visits to find a sequence that “worked”. This pace was too slow to become viable.

Who would want a Triple 5 Algorithm? Our team worked to improve the algorithm’s efficiency.

How could you test 282+ wavelengths varying any way selected for dozens of disorders? What if the patient needed two wavelengths or a sequence? There aren’t enough people in pain to test all the combinations using traditional methods.

PhotoMed’s team asked, can we record details of what happens when chronic pain ends? They quipped, only real-time data can solve this problem. Like the Hubble Space Telescope data came rolling in. But what did the data say?

The recordings form a baseline of images for future examination of treatment-resistant pain and impairments. The good news about real-time recordings is that you don’t need a hypothesis to get started. Link to disorders list.

Did NASA have hypotheses before launching Hubble?


Over time, humans performed tasks now automated by AI and deep-learning to develop the Triple 2 Algorithm. The process was slow as new cases added puzzling features that had to be accounted for. Our best medical-intervention models crashed until there were none. Our team was on its own.


When the therapy worked, some warming responses were quick and huge. The responses a puzzled our anesthesiologist advisors. They asked, which wavelengths make them larger?

 Unfortunately, our team wasted time, a lot of it, seeking a dose-response relationship. Then, someone noticed that the math doesn’t work when the dose drops to zero.

At last, PhotoMed’s real-time recordings demonstrated their extraordinary value. We confirmed our hunch without doing additional experiments. You’ll have to guess the answer. Hint: if you only have one wavelength, that’s the one that works.

The outcomes weren’t predicted in tomes on pain and neuroscience. Yet they seemed so reasonable, so normal, as reported by study volunteers. Now you know why we call the response the return to normal function.

For some, their improved functions have lasted more than a decade. Homeostasis in action?


PhotoMed’s engineers continue to build tools to record ever finer details. Our wound recording module recently came on line.

Today, you can turn on the Vari-Chrome® Pro and watch you patients impaired functions return toward normal. You can record the events via the Instant Feedback System™.

The Triple 2 Algorithm makes it efficient for you or your operators to get started.

Which of your patient’s impairments would you like end?

  • Sensory impairments

  • Motor impairments

  • Skin temperature regulation

  • “Phantom” pain (post-surgical pain)

  • Wounds
