Smart RLT

Regenerative Laser with an IQ

Serious tendon and ligament injuries to equine athletes present what used to be a chasm in the treatment arsenal for even the best equine veterinarians. Regenerative laser therapy in a portable, easy-to-use system has bridged that gap. And we have the results to prove it.

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

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

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

The Benefits of Therapy

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