WHAT’S LASER THERAPY?
Laser therapy is a technique that uses light energy to induce biological effects at the level of more or less deep tissues.
With the same emitted energy flow, as the radiation exposure time and wavelength vary there are interactions of a different nature between the ray and the tissues:
The energy absorbed in the tissue is used for structural modifications of the molecules and / or to produce new substances such as nucleic and protein acids. This results in a biostimulation of the tissues to repair themselves, but also in anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
Collisions between excited atoms transform light energy into thermal energy. This leads to a vasodilation in the microcirculation (greater influx of O2 and disposal of waste substances) and consequent analgesic effects.
A short light pulse with a high peak power generates pressure waves that break the protein bonds of the surface areas of the tissue, releasing electrons and ionized molecules. This allows the activation of fibroblasts and the increase of nutrients useful for tissue regeneration.
The THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS triggered by these three types of interactions are the following:
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANTIEDEMIGENOUS effect
The laser causes a “cleaning” of pro-inflammatory substances such as histamine and cytokines and promotes vasodilation, which increases O2 in injured tissues.
To block the action potential of superficial nociceptive terminations.
REGENERATIVE BIOSTIMULATING effect
The laser leads to an increase in the synthesis of RNA and proteins that facilitate the reparative processes in the tissues.
Another parameter to consider based on the therapeutic goal is the type of EMISSION. In the CONTINUOUS emission, the laser produces constant power in its active period.
With the continuous emission, the light beam is emitted without intermittence: the frequency will be = 0, so the average power and the peak power of the laser beam will be the same.
In pulsed mode, the emission takes place at more or less high frequencies that allow the emission of short duration and high intensity pulses.
In this mode, there are an average power and a peak power.
The pulsed mode includes the Duty Cycle: with the Duty Cycle, it is possible to administer high energy doses to the body, without overheating (and therefore damaging) the tissues.

GLOBUS DEVICES FOR LASER THERAPY
The Globus laser line offers low and high power portable devices.
High power is fundamental to let the laser beam act in depth in order to trigger the desired therapeutic effect on tissues.
The greater the transferred power, the greater the energy transmitted to the tissue where the lesion is located, thus allowing to trigger repair processes.
In addition to power, another property of laser therapy that allows to achieve different levels of treatment depth is the wavelength.
Globus laser devices allow to use three different wavelengths, which fit into the so-called “therapeutic window”, that is, the range in which absorption by the passive chromophores of the human body is more limited.
In this way the laser beam can penetrate deeper and reach the tissues to be treated. All Globus devices are equipped with a battery pack that allows them to be used off the mains.
