MICROLIGHT CORPORATION is a pioneer in the field of Cold Laser Sales and the exclusive manufacturer of the patented ML830® laser. MicroLight was the first company with FDA clearance to market low level laser therapy (“LLLT”) for the non-surgical treatment of pain through adjunctive therapy in patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The ML830® laser was the first IIIB Laser cleared by FDA after 12 years of research and 2 double blind studies. The new Smart Laser is the only hands-free cold laser in the world. Our lasers are used by Athletic Trainers, Chiropractors, MDs, Physical Therapists and Veterinarians across the world.
The human body normally reacts to this soft tissue trauma by “splinting” the injury with edema, a thin or watery fluid in tissue spaces or cell interstices. However, excess edema causes swelling that inhibits movement of the damaged tissue. These injuries result in two types of pain. The first is actual traumatic pain from the injury itself, and the second pain is from the swelling that results. LLLT focuses first on the lymphatic system which maintains the body’s fluid balance, while the laser light also helps absorb the excess edema. LLLT thus provides relief in two ways.
MicroLight has FDA clearance for devices under both the “NHN” and “ILY” classifications.The MicroLight ML830® was cleared by the FDA for treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. (See “About Us”). This clearance followed a double-blind study on CTS that was conducted at General Motors.
Laser wavelengths between 820 nanometers (nm) and 840 nm have an extremely low absorption rates in human tissue. This means that laser light penetrates deeply at those frequencies.
The ML830® is a GaAlA Laser that has wavelength of 830 nm with a power output of 90 mw. At this wavelength and power the ML830® Laser has a penetration of approximately 5 cm with a 3 cm lateral spread.
It is not an accident that the Microlight Corporation of America chose & patented the 830nm technology for its ML830®. There are 30+ years of clinical studies that proved the 830nm range is the optimal wave-length.
