INTRAVENOUS LIGHT THERAPY
The Nobel Prize science introduced by Finsen in 1903 for treating diseases with concentrated ultraviolet (UV) radiation of the blood, and the Nobel Prize LED technology introduced by Nakamura / UCSB in 2014 led to the development of the UVLrx Treatment System, delivering three specific LED wavelengths to the patient intravenously using a patented UVLrx Dry Light Adaptor™ and illuminating the passing blood supply.
The innovative technology of Intravenous LED Light Therapy (ILT) offered by UVLrx® takes existing light therapy to the next level by offering the body a way to help heal itself by illuminating all of the passing blood through intravenous therapy. The veterinary-specific UVLrx Treatment System is designed for use alongside today’s standard of care or as a stand alone drug-free alternative for veterinarians to treat a wide variety of ailments. The UVLrx Treatment System looks to challenge the traditional methods of light delivery, removing the limitations that have continued to hamper its promise.
Our company is the pioneer in multi-wavelength LED Intravenous Light Therapy (ILT). As such, it is the first known light therapy delivered concurrently through an IV catheter. Our patented Dry Light Adapter™ (DLA™) allows us to treat the patient’s blood supply without extraction which was previously a requirement. Accordingly, there is no loss of light caused by skin absorption and no limitation in the total volume of blood exposed to the therapeutic wavelengths. The UVL2000 Station emits three specific wavelengths of light designed to maximize treatment efficacy while preserving patient safety.
Intravenous Light Therapy (ILT) is a form of Photobiomodulation, a term accepted formally into modern conventional medicine. NAALT defines Photobiomodulation as “A form of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources, including LASERS, LEDs, and broad-band light, in the visible and infrared spectrum. It is a non-thermal process involving endogenous chromophores eliciting photophysical (i.e. linear and non-linear) and photochemical events at various biological scales. This process results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including but not limited to the alleviation of pain or inflammation, immunomodulation, and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration.”
