Great news, Tom Hemmings, a Masters graduate student at Georgia Southern University, found that LED therapy had a positive effect on muscular performance. THOR helped Tom decide on a thesis topic in December 2013, which he completed this past week.

The study itself identified the effects of various dosages of LED on the total repetitions performed during an eccentric leg extension. The dosages of 60 seconds and 120 seconds on each point were found to significantly increase repetitions when compared with the placebo trial.

This study suggests that LED can enhance muscular performance when applying the THOR laser prior an exercise bout.
