The Richmar LaserPrism (Cordless) is a non-invasive, low energy cold laser therapy device that emits photons, which are absorbed at the cellular level to promote biological changes, serving as a form of alternative medicine to accelerate healing and provide pain relief.
The photons are indicated "for the temporary increase in local blood circulation, temporary relief of minor muscle and joint aches, pains, and stiffness, and the relaxation of muscles; for muscle spasms, and minor pain and stiffness associated with arthritis."
Cold Laser Therapy, or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is widely used by doctors, dentists, physical therapists, and other trained medical practitioners around the world primarily for the purpose of tissue repair and healing, and to relieve pain and inflammation.
Not to be confused with surgical or aesthetic lasers, LLLT does not cause tissues to actually heat up, nor will it create any audible sound or vibration. It is sub-sensory, and thus painless to the patient.
The Richmar LaserPrism contains (3) 808nm near-infrared semiconductor laser diodes, each one emitting ~150mW in a continuous treatment mode. The diodes are gallium-aluminum-arsenide (GaAIAs).
Once activated, the device automatically delivers the selected treatment dosage of energy, goes into a 2-minute Standby mode, and then powers itself Off. The rechargeable battery is capable of delivering over 4 hours of treatment per charge.
The near-infrared light provides therapeutic heating, while the visible blue light serves two purposes: 1) as a guide-light to assist the directing of therapy on to the affected area of the body, and 2) to indicate that the accessory is on. Both wavelengths of light are activated simultaneously and can not be used separately.
Very lightweight and user-friendly, weighing just less than 4oz, without any accessories.
