THE BASICS REGARDING LASERS
The lasers used in the medical field, with regard to biological activity, can be divided into two categories:
High Power – “Hard lasers,” surgical lasers
Low Power – “Soft lasers,” therapeutic lasers
The Safe Laser devices belong to the therapeutic “soft lasers” group; in the case of such soft lasers, the laser light uses the effect of photochemical reaction to begin the beneficial biological processes, making Safe Laser therapy the same as low-level therapy with the addition of a special patent – making our devices completely harmless.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), sometimes referred to as “Cold Laser” therapy, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment used to tackle a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies. Laser therapy can be used any time a patient requires a non-invasive procedure for the control of pain, when conventional therapies have been ineffective or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is the desired priority.
THE INS AND OUTS OF SAFE LASER TECHNOLOGY
At its core, the Safe Laser technology stands apart because of its special diffuser surface that transforms the hazardous parallel beam of the laser in such a way that it becomes completely harmless to the human eye. The essence of its optical system remains a diffuser lens that “unlocks” the parallel laser beam before a secondary diffuser surface ensures that the lens of the eye cannot refocus it to dangerous levels.
Thanks to this new technology, these special soft lasers can now be used safely in the comfort of your own home.
HOW DOES SOFT LASER THERAPY WORK?
Research from 1947 indicates that mitochondria in the cells of the human body are light-sensitive, and mitochondria in various cells react differently to different wavelengths of the light. Within the light spectrum, the most powerful healing effect boasts red (e.g. 660 nm) and infrared (e.g. 808 nm) lights.The molecules in the energy absorption foto acceptor (light-absorbing) cells are activated by the soft laser and can activate other molecules, thus initiating chemical reactions in the surrounding cells and tissues.
WHAT ARE THE PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS?
The soft laser treatment yields three known healing effects on the human body:
Biostimulating Effect – Stimulates the body’s own healing ability
Safe Laser devices are divided into two major groups:
Red (660 nm) Laser Light – Safe Laser 150
Infrared (808 nm) Laser Light – Safe Laser 500 Infra + Safe Laser 1800 Infra
SAFE LASER – NEW PATENT INFORMATION
Safety Classification of Safe Laser – The classification of the laser device was made according to the IEC 60 825-1 Safety of Laser Products standard. We have applied the requirements with regard to the diffusion for the classification.Safe Laser lamp boasts a new special laser light source covered by a patent which emits polarized, coherent and monochromatic light like other lasers, but its light does not exhibit parallel (scattered) rays and cannot be focused optically into a pointed light in contrast to the conventional lasers; this new technology is referred to as Safe Laser Light (SLL, patent registration number 2103448).
MEASUREMENT AND CLASSIFICATION
Measurement and Classification – Made by Wigner Research Centre for Physics Optical Laboratory (former Central Research Institute for Physics) – Research Institute for Solid State Physics.
Test Procedure – The measurement was made according to the measuring instructions set out in the IEC 60 825-1 standard which prescribes the following steps:
– We measured the luminous flux emerging behind the diaphragm of 3.5 m in diameter set at a distance of 1 m from the diaphragm of 7 mm in diameter set at a distance of 35 mm from the diffusing lens. We obtained the performance of 4×10-4 W as a result by which we graded the equipment in Class 2.
– We have also examined at the development of Safe Laser Light – beyond the measurements set out by the standards – what power density can be achieved with a convergent lens in the eye; based on our measurements, the power density of Safe Laser Light is 2,500 times less than a parallel laser beam of the same performance, thus rendering it usable in a more secure fashion.
Radiation emitted from the laser equipment is not harmful to the human eye due to the involuntary blink reflex (of which reaction time is 0.25 seconds) providing protection against it. There is no need for a protective device – such as goggles – if an optical device (such as a convergent lens) is not inserted.
