West Virginia University Cancer Institute is using Photobiomodulation for their Oral mucositis patients

MONONGALIA COUNTY, W.Va (WDTV) – Cancer patients deal with many side effects when they go through treatment. The WVU Cancer Institute Department of Radiation Oncology found a way to prevent a side effect, known as mucositis, that is seen in head and neck cancer patients.

WVU Cancer Institute brings new technology to help with a common side effect

“It is an inflammation type of condition from head and neck radiation,” THOR photomedicine dental and oral mucositis specialist, Sara Jane Snyder said. “They get painful sores throughout their entire oral cavity, down their esophagus and all they down through their digestive track,” she said.

“Anybody who’s getting a high dose of chemoradiation treatment, it’s almost 100 percent guarantee that their going to get a high level of oral mucositis.”
Having mucositis can make everyday tasks difficult, like eating or brushing your teeth. This is why using what is called photobiomodulation helps treat this side effect.

“What we … Continue reading

Total You Health Finds New Clients During CV-19

Linda Bailey treats a horse with THOR LX2 Photobiomodulation therapy.Owner Linda Bailey of Total You Health, winner of the Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Small Business Award, did not let the pandemic stop her from delivering health to the community. In response to social distancing measures, Bailey made the decision to close her doors to human clients and take her healing equipment to the horse barn.

Total You Health has treated four horses for pain and inflammation by using their portable Photobiomodulation therapy unit with much success. Photobiomodulation, also known as “red light” therapy, is traditionally used on people in chronic pain, but this is also seen to relieve symptoms for depression, anxiety and other conditions.

LLLT Q&A : “how it is possible to have higher power density than the applicator’s total power”

QUESTION FROM KOREA
Dear James

The THOR 810nm 1W laser cluster (5 × 200mW) has a 1/e2 power density of 5.96W/cm2. Just wondering how it is possible to have higher power density than the applicator’s total power

The formula is power/beam area

ILLUSTRATION
When you drive your car at 60 kph that is 60 kilometres per hour you don’t have to drive for one hour and you don’t have to drive for 60 kilometres.
e.g. You can drive at 60kph for one minute* and you will have travelled only 1 kilometre
*(1/60th of an hour)(or to put it another 1 minute = 0.01666 of an hour)

Math: 1 kilometre / 0.01666 hours = 60kph

LASER
Same for laser irradiance (power density)

If the laser was 5 Watts and if the beam area was 1cm2 then you would have 5W /cm2
but 5W/cm2 does not need a 5W laser (same as you don’t need to drive 60 kilometres or drive for one hour)

e.g. a 1W laser with a beam that is 0.2cm2 is also 5W/cm2

The next decade of LLLT – the barriers to mainstream adoption

Because LLLT modulates cellular oxidation and energy production it could potentially affect  a wide range of diseases, injuries or other dysfunctions in the body.

By the end of the next decade, it is possible  LLLT may be used in almost every department of every hospital (and every medicine cabinet of every home).

Given the amount of good quality research published over the last decade, why isn’t it part of mainstream medicine already?
