BioFlex Treatment Systems
Laser Therapy is highly effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, soft tissue injuries and wound healing. The BioFlex Treatment Systems utilize Superluminous Diodes (SLD) and laser diodes of specific wavelengths, and a power output of up to 2000mW, to irradiate abnormal tissues with photons. Light photons are absorbed by the cell and stimulate the production of cellular energy, which facilitates the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. The additional energy is also available to power many secondary processes, resulting in pain relief and tissue healing. Laser Therapy is curative and therefore eliminates symptoms.
The BioFlex systems are operated in over 34 countries worldwide and have been termed the gold standard in the industry. The primary focus of low level laser therapy treatment is to improve/cure most pathologies in a short period of time. By using these units, one can eliminate pain, reduce the use of pharmaceuticals and restore normal mobility and quality of life.
Education and training are included with all BioFlex Systems delivered. In addition to the basic Certification Programme, Meditech also hosts Advanced Training Seminars and Biannual International Symposia to promote the enrichment of LILT knowledge. Meditech provides a full year parts and labour warranty on all equipment and is open seven days per week in order to respond to clinical and technical enquires.
Conventional wisdom in the health care industry relates to “the management of pain”. Many different therapies are applied in this process, including modalities that simply modulate systems (ultrasound, interferential current, etc.), analgesics that mask the perception of pain and a number other methods that are ineffective. Pain is a symptom of a pathology (disease); laser therapy cures the pathology, therefore the pain disappears.
Advantages of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
· Easily Applied
· Highly Effective
· Cure Rate > 95%
· No known side effects
Provision of Basic Protocols
Consistent, standardized treatments can be immediately administered using BioFlex Systems. The user-friendly software incorporates a library of scientifically developed and clinically tested protocols for the treatment of a multitude of medical conditions. Meditech continues to refine existing treatment parameters and is developing new strategies for the treatment of additional pathologies.
Customizable Treatment Parameters
Therapists can manually customize protocols specific for individual patient conditions. BioFlex Systems have the capacity to deliver an infinite range of protocols through the adjustment of several parameters including frequency, duty cycle, waveform, pulse modulation, energy density and duration.
All BioFlex Systems are portable and can be used in stand-alone configuration. This increases therapist mobility and patient convenience.
Patented Treatment Arrays and Probes
Large surface flexible arrays contour to anatomical configurations and permit hands-free treatment; individual laser probes are used to treat the foci of pathologies and acupoints. The BioFlex Systems utilize an intelligent bio-feedback loop, which ensures accurate and reliable power output at all times. Probes and arrays are only activated upon circuit completion through contact with the skin. In addition, safety glasses provide additional protection as required, an important feature guarding against potential ocular damage.
The healing potential of Laser Therapy extends to a wide range of medical conditions and provides a treatment alternative for patients who have not responded to other therapies. Some of the problems most effectively treated include:
· Arthritic Conditions
o Degenerative Osteoarthritis
o Chronic Back Problems
o Spinal Stenosis
o Joint Deterioration
· Soft Tissue and Sports Injuries
o Muscle/Ligament Tears
o Contusions and Hematoma
· Wound Healing, Dermal Ulcers, Burns
· General Problems
o Herniated Discs
o Post-Herpetic Neuralgia
o Reflex Sympatheic Dystrophy
o Diabetic Neuropathy
