Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. It can be mild or severe, affecting one or more joints. It causes pain, swelling, warmth or stiffness in the affected joints and it can can affect anyone and almost everyone, young or old alike.
Introducing the BioBeamÂ 940 - a drug free, pain free, risk free, low level narrow band red light medical device to alleviate chronic pain associated with all types of arthritis such as osteoarthritis, rheumatic and rheumatoid arthritis, gout arthritis and pains in small joints, and for the treatment of soft tissue disorders, such as tendonitis.
The BioBeamÂ 940 can either be used as an alternative or in conjunction with pharmaceuticals and physiotherapy. The BioBeamÂ 940 is an effective photo-therapy to relieve pain. The BioBeamÂ 940 is a Class 2A phototherapeutic medical device and complies with Annex VI of the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC and is CE certified (CE 0473).
Double blind tests have documented that BioBeamÂ 940 treatment significantly lessens pain associated with chronic tendonitis and facet joint arthritis. Patients with degenerative knee diseases and chondromalacia patella showed a significant improvement in pain, power, ability to negotiate stairs, and walking tolerance.
Phototherapy is a medical field where patients are treated with light rays. Phototherapy have been used successfully in many clinical applications and trials. Basically photo-therapy induces 3 types of tissue interaction : (1) photochemical effects, (2) photothermal effects and (3) photomechnical and photoionizing effects.
When light is applied on tissues, there are certain positive biological changes and in this case your body produces a positive effect which can alleviate chronic pain associated with rheumatic and rheumatoid arthritis pains in small joints, and for the treatment of soft tissue disorders, such as tendonitis.
The BioBeamÂ 940 - uses low level narrow band infra light which is absolutely safe, does not emits heat, have no side effects even for long term usage and is non-invasive and have no contra indication to use with any medications or physiotherapy.
Possible explanation of the neuropharmacological analgesic effects of photo (light) stimulation is well documented. For instances when photo-therapy is applied to key points on the surface of the skin, muscle tension can be released and circulation of blood can be increased.
Stimulating these key points tiggers the release of endorphins which are neurochemical that relieve pain .
With the release of this chemical comes the relief of pain and reduce inflammation together with increase in the blood flow and oxygen supply to the affected area. In addition, photo-therapy appears to modulate the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and acetylcholine which are known to play important roles in pain attenuation.
However it is also important to note that the illumination treatments with BioBeamÂ 940 are intended to be carried out in conjunction with treatment prescribed by a licensed medical practitioner, and are not intended to replace such medical treatment, unless specifically recommended by a physician. In all cases, it is strongly recommended to consult with a physician before use.
