MLS laser therapy

Multiwave Locked System laser therapy synchronizes continuous and pulsed emissions of high energy laser providing well aimed procedures that generate anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects as well as reduction of oedema. The 905nm wavelength pulsated emission provides mainly analgesic effect, while…

Multiwave Locked System laser therapy synchronizes continuous and pulsed emissions of high energy laser providing well aimed procedures that generate anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects as well as reduction of oedema. The 905nm wavelength pulsated emission provides mainly analgesic effect, while the 808nm continuous emission counteracts inflammation and reduces oedema.

I’m completing equipment for my private rehabilitation room and I wonder which cryotherapy apparatus I should choose. Will a nitrogen device be better or I’d rather choose a CO2 apparatus?

Both types of cryotherapy equipment allow to reach similar therapeutic effects – the main difference is in the cooling medium that is used. Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy devices allow to decrease temperature to about -160°C while the temperature produced by a CO2 apparatus ranges between -70°C and -80°C. It must be noted that using CO2 apparatuses is much more economic.
