Our premier laser system that uses Genuine Laser therapy!
we use lasers, not LEDs.
FDA specifies labeling for laser systems to aid the consumer in making wise choices. The label must specify the laser class, the Maximum Average Power, and the wavelength. The Maximum Average Power reading shown on this label is the amount of laser light that can be measured when the device is 20cm away, and through a 7mm aperture stop. This is the measurement specified by the FDA to show on this label so that any potential eye hazard can be determined. The output at 20cm from the laser output demonstrates that this laser is a non-significant hazard.
Placement of danger logo is a requirement of U.S. federal law if you are advertising a Class III laser therapy system. If this logo does not appear with the advertisement for a product, then it is either not a laser system, or it is not complying with federal law. Back to top
After you are convinced that the system you are using is a laser, and NOT an LED, then consider how it is classified. Lasers are classified based upon power. Think of laser power as you think of roller skates, scooters, cars and jet planes. The graph shows the number of seconds required to deliver 12J, 20 Joules and 30 Joules. A 500mW laser like the 2400XLs emits 100 times faster than a 5mW and 10 times faster than a 50mW laser. More power gets you there (or in the case of laser, delivers a therapeutic treatment dosage) faster. Usually, the more power you get, the faster you get there, and the more expensive it is. As with personal transportation, there is a practical limit to going faster. Class I lasers at 5mW can be used to stimulate tissue, however, the long period of time needed to generate an average dosage of 4 Joules/cm2, 800 seconds, is prohibitive. Class IIIb lasers are usually 500mW or less, and are designated by the U.S. FDA as non-significant risk devices. Professional laser therapy devices fall within the IIIb category. A 50mW therapy laser can generate 4 joules in 80 seconds, while a 500mW laser will generate 4 Joules in 8 seconds. For laser therapy, they go fast enough. You can also go too fast, with Class IV lasers. They produce powers above 500mW, and at 7000mW (or 7 Watts) go so fast that FDA requires a warning label that states the laser device has the potential to ignite materials on contact, causing injury. In addition, the FDA web site states, WARNING: Direct eye contact with output beam from the laser will cause serious damage and possible blindness .Avoid direct exposure to the laser light. The intensity of the beam can easily cause flesh burns or ignite clothing (Click here for more information). These Lasers are designed to provide the owner with a safe device (Class IIIb lasers are considered non-significant risk devices), that do not heat the tissue, and yet provide enough energy to permit a rapid treatment.

We have chosen 904nm as the wavelength for our veterinary products due to the enhanced penetration characteristics at the higher wavelengths. This permits more laser energy to penetrate deep into joints and muscles. This graph demonstrates relative penetration at 904 compared to lower wavelengths where more energy is absorbed at the surface of the tissue. It shows that 904nm has roughly 4 times the penetration capability when compared to wavelengths at 620 or 630nm. Penetration peaks at about 904nm which is why we have chosen this wavelength.
