The PetLight system is the veterinary version of LightMD’s patented light therapy system. Approved by the FDA in late 2015, for human therapeutic use, the PetLight system is non-invasive and stimulates the body’s natural healing response using flexible polymeric pads containing hundreds of solid-state superluminous diodes.
The phototherapy we use is the culmination of years of research, clinical application, and experimentation. The device represents a significant breakthrough, utilizing state- of-the-art high intensity, super bright LED’s. Research is beginning to show that LED light is superior to Lasers, and the effects are far reaching.
Although not required for treatment of animals, you can feel safe knowing that the phototherapy system we use is FDA-Approved for humans as of 2015. It is the first light therapy device to achieve FDA-Approval for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature; for the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, sprains, strains, and muscle spasm, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain; relieving stiffness; promoting the relaxation of muscle tissue; and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where applied.
Rest assured that our devices are safe, non-invasive, thoroughly tested and approved. For reference: FDA-Approval #K142256
Many of today’s light therapy devices on the market offer light at a single wavelength – a one-size-fits-all approach, which as we know just doesn’t work for everyone. And none of them speak about catering to our animal’s needs.Our highly programmable system allows us access to the full spectrum of red through infrared light. This is important because different parts of the body – skin, tissue, muscles, etc. – respond best to different wavelengths, as proven by countless research articles. Our device not only comes with these proven wavelengths as presets, but also allows us to manually input a frequency of red or infrared light between 1Hz and 20,000Hz.
Backed By Research
Not only is phototherapy a well-documented topic, but each treatment selected and programmed into our device is backed by sound research. Only recently have we been able to bring phototherapy to a recognized status thanks to today’s technological advances.
Denser Area of Light
The LightPads that are used emit light from hundreds of superluminous diodes per pad, providing a denser, richer area of light. Thanks to the high intensity SLDs, density, and coverage provides greater light absorption and efficiency.
Our phototherapy device comes equipped with it’s very own operating system, LightOS™, which allows for easy selection of preset treatments (set with light wavelengths that are well-researched) as well as an option for custom treatments, allowing for frequencies between 1Hz and 20,000Hz.As LightMD is continually working on improving their system, we can look forward to keeping the device up to date without having to buy a new one, and patients can look forward to always receiving the best LightMD’s therapy has to offer.
The light therapy device comes equipped with highly-flexible, patented LightPads™, which use a new type of flexible connector between sets of superluminous diodes (SLDs) creating a grid-like structure inside the hygienic polymeric pad. This grid provides superior flexibility in multiple directions, which allows it to better to contour around the body for greater comfort and coverage.This new grid design also helps prevent SLD failure that is common with phototherapy devices that see stress from continuous flexing with everyday use.
