A Feasible, Reliable Addition to the Equine Veterinary Practice

| Regenerative Laser Therapy | No Comments
Equine veterinarians are increasingly mobile these days, and not only with respect to their practice as a whole, but in their need to move quickly from horse-to-horse with their equipment. But a veterinarian’s time is money, and so whatever the equipment, it needs to be effective, easy-to-use, and portable. And what if the techs could do it instead? This article will reveal Regenerative Laser Therapy (RLT) as a viable option in the clinic, on the go, or at a show.…

A Comparison of Regenerative Medicine in Equine Veterinary Practice

| Regenerative Laser Therapy | No Comments
Therapeutics in equine veterinary practice have grown increasingly popular over the last couple years, especially with respect to Regenerative Medicine (RM). Within this subset of tools there is a fairly wide variety of interventions with several degrees of invasiveness, techniques, and effectiveness. In an attempt to better understand the current state of the market Sound commissioned a third-party survey to gauge the following aspects of several currently employed modalities: • Degree of Integration • Difficulty/Ease of Logistical Implementation • Level…

Regenerative vs Therapeutic: a Laser is a Laser, right?

| Regenerative Laser Therapy | No Comments
In the equine veterinary market, where the pathologies are deep-seated, recovery times are longer and patients are more expensive, there is a lot of pressure to fix them quicker. Within the laser market there are several claims at quick-fix solutions, but these systems have a wide variety of parameters and mechanisms. In this article we’ll dive into the main differences… • Therapeutic Stimulation • Regenerative Healing • The Clinical Difference, and • The Threshold Between the Two

The Regenerative Advantage

Regenerative Laser Therapy (RLT) is achieved when light is delivered in very short, very high-energy pulses. When these pulses are absorbed deep into the tissue, they create an outgoing shockwave (in all directions;) called a photo-acoustic wave that propagates even deeper into the tissue. More importantly, these waves can interact with the extracellular matrix, a web of tissue around the tendon/ligament that hold important growth factors. RLT can force these growth factors to be released and absorbed into injured cells when they would NOT have naturally. RLT technology broadens the scope of what can be treated to the more severe pathologies, especially in the ligaments and tendons of the equine athlete. Injuries that will naturally cause scar tissue, which over time will compromise the elasticity of the tendon/ligament, can now be nipped in the bud (if caught early) or even restored in chronic cases.

The Benefits of Therapy

Stimulating the body to do what it does, only faster.

  • Stimulates capillary circulation
  • Enhances perfusion of blood from vessels to tissues
  • Initiate the release of oxygen from blood
  •  Enhances targeted tissue oxygenation
  •  Enhances efficiency of ATP production process
  • Generate more cellular energy within cells
  • Faster and stronger healing

RLT is Above and Beyond with Tissue Regeneration

Forcing the body to re-align and re-vitalize when it WOULD NOT have otherwise.

Short, powerful laser pulses can generate acoustic waves that

  • Propagate deeper into tissue
  • Agitate the extra-cellular matrix
  • Release the growth factors that lay dormant on injured cells
  • Increase permeability of the cells
  • Nutrients can enter cells easier
  • Waste can exit cells easier

RLT is Scientifically Validated to Regenerate Tissue

  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Cartilage
  • Bone/Joint
  • Wounds
  • Even pre- and post-performance

Can be used alone or as an adjunct to:

  • Extra-corperal Shockwave
  • PRP
  • Stem Cells Therapy
  • IRAP
  • Injections

More Rugged. More Portable.

SOUND® refuses to be satisfied with success. The SmartRLT Sport represents the forefront of innovation, decreasing the total volume by 67% and the weight by 31% from the SmartRLT, while maintaining the proven output parameters and enhancing the durability of all components. Now equine vets and techs of all sizes can easily transport and deliver this amazing technology in the clinic, at the track, and in the field.

Right Tool. Right Handle.

Designed to ergonomically treat the tendons and ligaments of the equine limb as well as to comfortably massage the soft tissue of backs and stifles. The handpiece and optics allow for maximum light penetration with optimal patient comfort during treatment. For the deep-seated lesions of the hoof, SOUND® has developed disposable caps that can withstand the rugged exterior of the frog, protecting the lens and ensuring the longevity of the system.

Smart Interface Keeps Your Focus on Your Patient.

Advanced user interface saves time with new efficient settings and treatment protocols. Boasting a patient calendar, on-screen treatment videos, easy to view protocols, simple workflow, WiFi enabled auto-updater, and so much more!

Same Parameters. Same Extraordinary Results.

Back in 2012 when SOUND® first brought Regenerative Lasers to the veterinary market, there were already decades of research behind it. In the 7 years since, we’ve combined our laser and equine experience to build what we know to be one of the most powerful treatment tools in the equine veterinary arsenal. Without a doubt, SmartRLT Sport will continue to serve patients all over the world with the highest level of regenerative medicine.
