High Energy Laser Therapy (HELT) is a drug-free, surgery-free and non-invasive use of laser energy to treat damaged tissue for the relief of pain and the promotion of healing. HELT helps to accelerate the recovery process for a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions, as well as aiding reduction of post-surgical pain and decreasing inflammation.
HELT differs from Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in that it requires the use of a Class IV laser, with a typical power output of at least 10W CW (continuous wave). This type of laser is normally used for medical surgery and the higher power results in faster treatment times and a warm & comfortable sensation for the patient.

Not only that, we supply our own optical fibres, handpieces and other accessories, giving you a double-edged advantage from one main product.
