Another good example of a SuperPulsing device with low Average Output Power (I respect them for actually telling the consumer this spec though versus other laser companies selling Superpulsing devices that do not unless repeatedly asked or even threatened haha) that is grossly over priced. Remember that once you have the Average Output Power values you can then directly compare that spec to a Continuous Wave device and it’s power output. This is essential part of making your apples to apples comparison between brands and models.
Make sure to watch my Superpulsing video so you understand the truth about these companies marketing their psuedoscience to sell their equipment for lots of $$$$.
Theralase® offers 2 groups of products (Portable and handheld). The first group uses a battery operated (rechargeable) desktop controller that works with 3 optional probes. The second group of products is a set of handheld cordless emitters. All their probes use at least one 50,000 mW super-pulsed 905 nm (near infrared) emitters as the main source of energy. Their cluster probes also include 2 or 4 beams at 660 nm wavelength (visible red).
Based on their “technology” (not proven Science), Theralase® claims:
4 inches of penetration with the 905 nm wavelength
1/4 to 1 inch of penetration with their 660 nm wavelength
Really? Ask them where is the proof to measuring those values…
Here is more techno babble:
“By using a high peak power of 50,000 mW from a coherent super-pulsed beam in bursts of a very short duration (only 200 nanoseconds), the Theralase® TLC-1000 gets better penetration without the risk of tissue heating (risk?? This is fear tactics. Prove it. They just made a claim.). The brief pulses of light energy are delivered at a high frequency of around 10 kHz. This means that superficial tissues will not heat up due to very short burst time but the high power level means better depth of penetration.
I saw this below on a laser website of a distributor who sells a few brands of lasers. www.coldlasers.org and coldlasers.com (same owner):
High peak power + short duration + high frequency = Best therapeutic doses to deep injuries up to 4” in tissue.
Balogne folks. Where is the proof to back this “formula”? Let me save you some research time…it doesn’t exist.
