Although some may use the term to describe different and varying types of light-based therapies, the phototherapy PetLight uses does not use potentially harmful wavelengths (e.g. ultraviolet light), concentrated lasers (i.e. surgical lasers), or chemicals/drugs (e.g. those used in photodynamic therapy).

Instead, our therapy employs a highly flexible pad of superluminous diodes (SLDs) that emit “good” light — red and infrared — at specific wavelengths that we are able to program to best suit the therapy needed.

The term phototherapy may also apply to heliotherapy, which is a way to treat humans for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other conditions by exposure to artificial light. While our technology also emits light, the device exists as more than a simple light box that may be used in this scenario.
