Low Level Laser (LLLT) “regenerates teeth”

Low level laser regenerates teeth TV, radio and newspapers all over the world got very excited last week reporting that “laser regenerates teeth” following a Harvard study.

THOR at Harvard MIT

David Sengeh has been developing powered limbs at MIT for amputees (like the bionic man). Where the powered limb attaches to the body (the stump of the original leg) it gets very sore. David has been using our standard THOR products to heal the stump and reduce pain. It works very well, though it takes a lot of time to treat the whole area. I am in Boston now to help David start clinical trials with a new device we designed that will treat the whole stump. The amputee puts the the leg stump into the LED treatment cylinder and gets a complete treatment in just one minute :-)
