The PowerLaser Pro – by PowerMedic of Denmark
Lasers are rapidly giving the modern health practitioner options for therapy that could only have been imagined in the past. For example, an acupuncturist today has the choice of whether to use only needles for meridian therapy or to offer their patients painless laser treatment.
The PowerLaser Pro, from PowerMedic of Denmark, is perhaps one of the best examples of how new technology is transforming our current understanding and implementation of healthcare.
The PowerLaser is a portable device that is offered as a completely sealed system which is powered by a unique rechargeable battery. Each diode of the laser produces a 1000 mW hyper-pulsed laser beam which is diffused for safety, and has been cleared by the FDA as a class IIIB therapeutic device. Besides its professional-grade, heavy-duty manufacture, it also provides the user with three unique properties which make it both a pleasure to use and an effective therapeutic device in everyday practice. These include 1) a touchscreen, 2) an adjustable tactile vibration, and 3) an equally adjustable audio signal – all of which make the PowerLaser not only effective, but also a genuine pleasure to use. By providing both a physical vibration and an audio tone, both the practitioner and the patient are aware of whenever the instrument is actually at work emitting laser light. This provides such a natural feedback to the therapist that the laser’s operation allows them to focus easily on the treatment itself, instead of being distracted by making adjustments to the device.
I have found that the power laser can also be effectively used to treat not only acupuncture points but local regions of the body as well, such as the joints, ligaments and tendons, as well as conditions of the skin.
After using both the three diode and the single diode models of the PowerLaser for more than a year, it is hard for me to imagine being without them in my daily practice. This includes treating infants and children, as well as any patient who is sensitive or who simply prefers a more contemporary and effective form of treatment.
