Clinical Studies and Publications on the Use of Phototherapy:
Comparative study in the management of allergic rhinitis in children using LED phototherapy and laser acupuncture
Narrow-band red light phototherapy in perennial allergic rhinitis and nasal polyposis
Effect of NASA light-emitting diode irradiation on wound healing.
We believe that the use of NASA LED for light therapy alone, and in conjunction with hyperbaric oxygen, will greatly enhance the natural wound healing process, and more quickly return the patient to a preinjury/illness level of activity. This work is supported and managed through the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center-SBIR Program. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11776448
Is light-emitting diode phototherapy (LED-LLLT) really effective?
Provided an LED phototherapy system has the correct wavelength for the target cells, delivers an appropriate power density and an adequate energy density, then it will be at least partly, if not significantly, effective. The use of LED-LLLT as an adjunct to conventional surgical or nonsurgical indications is an even more exciting prospect. LED-LLLT is here to stay. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3799034/
Effects of low-power light therapy on wound healing: LASER x LED
The reviewed studies show that phototherapy, either by LASER or LED, is an effective therapeutic modality to promote healing of skin wounds. The biological effects promoted by these therapeutic resources are similar and are related to the decrease in inflammatory cells, increased fibroblast proliferation, angiogenesis stimulation, formation of granulation tissue and increased collagen synthesis. www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0365-05962014000400616&script=sci_arttext
