High Power Laser


It raises the game of laser treatment; its higher power achieves greater photonic delivery, shortening treatment times, generating a thermal effect, and improving healing. It can almost immediately arrest soft tissue and joint paint. Its 3 wavelengths allow for optimal tissue absorption and it can achieve much greater penetration depth than its low-power counterparts

How It Benefits

More power increases the power density in the tissue and this results in an increase in the thermal effect in deeper layers as well. As a result of the high power of the optonpro, the distance to the tissue and thus the radius of the treatment area can be greatly enlarged. This can mean a significant time savings for the user.

High intensity laser therapy offers effective treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions ranging from muscle injuries and tendinopathies to degenerative joint diseases

  • Deep tissue penetration with power up to 15 W
  • Optimal tissue absorption due the 2 or 3 different wavelengths: 810 nm, 980 nm and 1064 nm
  • Different emission modes for optimal output adjustment
  • Preset protocols for easy application

How is this achieved?

Laser energy stimulates a healing cascade which facilitates the ATP synthesis in the tissue (light energy is converted into chemical energy), promoting protein synthesis and cell proliferation. This process results in reduced inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and ultimately leads to tissue repair and a decrease in pain and discomfort.

High Power Laser treatment has been thoroughly researched and documented. Here are some clinical studies that support the efficacy of the treatment

Therapeutic Effects

Analgesic  Laser light is absorbed and partly scattered in the target tissue and thereby largely converted into heat. This thermal stimulus to the nociceptors of the skin affects the peripheral neurological tract and polarizes the A-ß and A-d neurons as described in the pain gate-control theory. This polarization activates the neural and humoral endorphinergic pain inhibition system with immediate pain relief as a result.

Anti-Inflammatory  Inflammation is necessary for healing. The challenge for the clinician is to control this acute inflammatory stage in order to allow the next stage of healing. The HPL units effectively modulate the inflammatory processes secondary to their deep stimulation of tissues. This deep stimulation triggers vasodilatation and increased oxygenation, which activates the main metabolic activities and resolves the inflammatory process quicker.

Regenerative effects  the described acceleration of healing processes primarily manifests in the form of fibroblast activation. The actual cascade of healing is fuelled by increased ATP synthesis and increased protein synthesis combined with cellular proliferation. Because of the non-thermal nature of this activation, only small amounts of laser energy are required. The attenuation of the laser light in the tissue depends on the localization of the lesion and determines the laser power required. Deeper structures such as tendons or joint capsules may require the application of higher doses to the surface.
