Development of an innovative LED panel enabling low level light therapy of skin specific for the phase of wound healing.  2013 - 2016

Burns, tumors or surgical interventions often result in large scale wounds that challenge the body's ability to regenerate and still represent a substancial problem for modern medicine. Low level light therapy (LLLT) offers a promising approach that has already proven effective in the treatment of dermatosis and chronic pain.

Dr Peter Dungel and his group have applied LLLT in other settings and discovered some of the mechanisms that help enforce its positive effect. The results give rise to the expectation that LLLT is a non-invasive yet powerful tool to enhance the body's regenerative capacities and facilitate wound healing.
