Description

BTL HIGH INTENSITY LASER: A HANDSFREE SOLUTION FOR EFFECTIVE HEALING

The BTL-6000 High Intensity Laser (HIL) is the first Robotic Intelligent Scanning System with the highest power approved by Health Canada. Its power of 10 Watts and ideal wavelength of 1064nm allow for effective light penetration deep into the tissues. The BTL HIL offers a powerful form of pain management, healing, and regeneration through a natural process of energy transfer. It’s effective in the treatment of a multitude of acute and chronic conditions and sport injuries including muscle strain or joint distortion, arthritis, low back pain & sciatica and impingement syndrome to name a few. Health Canada approved. Medical Device License 80111.

MEDICAL EFFECTS

Pulsed

The analgesic effect of the High Intensity Laser occurs mostly when using the pulsed mode where therapy is delivered in very short pulses at a very high frequency. The pulsed mode has the ability to create actual pressure. The pressure waves are carried through the tissue where they stimulate nerve endings and activate the gate control mechanism of pain relief. The analgesic effect of the High Intensity Laser is instantaneous and long-lasting.

The mechanical waves created by the High Intensity Laser stimulate local microcirculation and lymph drainage of the area being treated. Combining biostimulation and photomechanical stimulation, the High Intensity Laser therapy actually heals the tissue while providing a non-addictive form of pain management.

The energy delivered by the High Intensity Laser speeds up cellular metabolism and increases the speed of resorption of proinflammatory mediators. Decreased concentration of proinflammatory mediators restores capillary permeability and results in elimination of inflammation.

Continuous

The term biostimulation refers to stimulation at the cellular level to facilitate and speed up healing and recovery. Faster exchange of oxygen and metabolites due to laser irradiation causes more oxygen atoms to reach the mitochondria. Mitochondria are further stimulated to increase the synthesis of ATP which leads to faster recovery.

The thermal effect of the High Intensity Laser is caused by the absorption of the 1064 nm wavelength in the superficial tissues. Warming the superficial tissues decreases of scatter and absorption coefficients and allows for even deeper light penetration. Thermal effect also causes vasodilatation. As a result, blood perfusion increases, larger amounts of oxygen are delivered to the tissues and more metabolites are resorbed.


The energy delivered with continuous High Intensity Laser therapy causes superficial hyperthermy in the tissues and consequently vasodilatation. As increased perfusion passes more blood through the treated area, the muscles relax, pain decreases and range of motion is improved.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

TR-Therapy transfers radiofrequency energy through tissue using either capacitive or resistive applicator. Capacitive mode is used to treat superficial structures, such as skin and muscles. Resistive way of application treats deep structures, such as deep muscles, tendons and bones. Due to natural resistivity of the body to radiofrequency energy, TR-Therapy creates pleasant selective healing that spreads through the body. TR-Therapy brings not only scientifically proven medical effects but also a great feeling of being relaxed.

MECHANISM
OF ACTION

The therapeutic effect of laser is based on biostimulation and the facilitation and acceleration of cellular processes that contribute to pain relief and faster recovery post injury. The photomechanical wave stimulates nerve endings, which leads to pain relief. Biostimulation of the affected tissue increases oxygen uptake and improves blood flow.



WAVELENGTH & POWER

Therapeutic lasers are defined by their power and wavelength. Wavelength is important as the ideal effects on tissue is light in the spectrum of approximately 650 to 1100 nm. The 1064nm wavelength of the BTL High Intensity Laser ensures an optimal ratio between penetration and absorption in the tissues. The amount of power a laser can safely deliver can decrease therapy time by more than half.  The combination of 10 W power and 1064 nm wavelength targets deep-lying tissues, eliminates pain and delivers strong thermic therapies within a short period of time.


CLASSES

Based on the wavelength and power, lasers are divided into multiple classes. Therapeutic lasers are generally of class 3B, low level laser therapy (LLLT), with power less than 500 mW whereas class 4, High Intensity Laser, delivers power of 500 mW and more.


MODES

2 modes are available on the BTL High Intensity Laser – pulsed and continuous. Pulsed mode represents turning the laser on and off at a very high frequency and it is used for pain relief. Continuous irradiation is a mode in which the laser remains turned on during the entire treatment and is used to promote biostimulation, healing and recovery.

FAQ

Yes, it is. However, there are safety measures that must be followed. High Intensity Laser can be dangerous to the eyes, opened or closed. Therapist and patient must therefore wear safety glasses provided by the supplier. Also, the therapy should be performed in a closed room.

No, it’s not.  It’s a painless therapy. 

Since the application of High Intensity Laser is dynamic, the chance of burns is very low.  Automated safety measures are in place when using the optional Intelligent Robotic Scanning System.  It includes safe distance monitoring between the system and the patient, temperature monitoring, and a thermal perception scan to determine patient heat threshold.  

This depends on the condition, it’s severity and how the body will react to treatment.  The number of treatments can range between 5 to 10. 

High Intensity Laser can be used daily.  A minimum of 2 sessions per week is recommended.

Analgesic Effect

Based on the gate control mechanism of pain, mechanical stimulation of free nerve endings leads to their inhibition and hence pain relief.
