Laser applicators – huge therapeutic possibilities
Clinical studies and years of experience in the field of laser therapy applications have demonstrated the effectiveness of this therapy for the appropriate wavelengths. The so-called “therapeutic window” has been defined. It is a range of wavelengths from 650 nm to 1200 nm. PhysioGo.Lite Laser by cooperation with all applicators available in the ASTAR offer: point probes, scanning laser applicator, cluster laser applicator, stimulates tissues with a wavelength of 660 nm (R) – superficial effect and 808 nm (IR) therapy of deeply located tissues. In addition to the wavelength, an important parameter is also the applicator power. The therapist working with PhysioGo.Lite Laser in combination with CL-1800 (cluster laser applicator) has available a power of up to 1800 mW.
In addition, the use of a scanning laser applicator makes it possible to perform treatments on large surfaces while using simultaneously R and IR radiation. Three different sources of laser radiation available in the ASTAR company’s offer may be connected to the PhysioGo.Lite Laser unit.
Safety first – self-test procedure
The device software allows you to perform the self-test procedure each time it is turned on. It is a current control of the device’s operational status, thanks to which PhysioGo.Lite Laser is a safe tool in the hands of a physiotherapist. After completing the self-test, the display shows the information about the readiness for operation of the accessories connected to the device. Always before the start of treatment procedures, the device automatically conducts a laser radiation power test. In addition, the user can carry out a point probe power measurement test at any time, which is an additional functional advantage.
Medical devices require annual periodic inspections. To meet these requirements, PhysioGo.Lite Laser gives the opportunity to save the date of the next inspection review. After the deadline, the device will automatically remind the user to carry out the necessary inspection. Like all ASTAR brand products, the device meets the requirements of the Medical Device Directive.
