Common Uses: Lumen Photon Therapy is proud to introduce a brand new line of light therapy products for home and office use. Our products are indicated for pain relief, muscle relaxation, increasing circulation, and increasing mobility of joints. These devices fall under FDA classification (RT) and became exempt from the 510(k) requirement in 1997 because of their safety.
All models offer 7 frequencies of infrared and visible light with 8 user-controlled settings (Quick Guide) from a universal micro-processor (technical specs), ensuring that an optimum setting is available for all situations. All models come with a power adaptor, padded carrying case, and manual.
What Does Light Therapy Do?
Increase vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen as well as more nutrients needed for healing and they can also carry more waste products away.
Stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site.
Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. All food turns into ATP before it is utilized by the cells. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reaction of the cell.
Increase lymphatic system activity. Edema, which is the swelling or natural splinting process of the body, has two basic components. The first is a liquid part which can be evacuated by the blood system and the second is comprised of the proteins which have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. Research has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymph system can be doubled with the use of light therapy. The venous diameter and the arterial diameters can also be increased. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.
Increase RNA and DNA synthesis. This helps damaged cells to be replaced more promptly.
Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue. The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to the area being treated. These ions assist in firing the nerves thereby relieving pain.
Stimulate fibroblastic activity which aids in the repair process. Fibroblasts are present in connective tissue and are capable of forming collagen fibers.
Increase phagocytosis, which is the process of scavenging for and ingesting dead or degenerated cells by phagocyte cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.
Induce a thermal like effect in the tissue. The light raises the temperature of the cells although there is no heat produced from the diodes themselves. (The therapy equipment will be warm to the touch because of the electronics needed to power the diodes.)
Stimulate tissue granulation and connective tissue projections, which are part of the healing process of wounds, ulcers or inflamed tissue.
Stimulate acetylcholine release. Acetylcholine causes cardiac inhibition, vasodilation, gastrointestinal peristalsis and other parasympathetic effects.
What is Light Therapy?
A form of treatment that has been independently studied for more than 40 years worldwide. Visible and infrared light have been shown to affect positive therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms on a cellular level. Lumen’s? equipment offers 7 specific settings to promote different levels of tissue healing and regeneration.
Pain and inflammation can arise in people as a result of disease-based conditions, physical trauma, work-related stresses, training, or other high performance activities. When looking for long-term solutions to these problems, many traditional western medical practitioners have been recommending the use of light energy therapy. Clinical tests have been conducted by NASA, Stanford University, and the Mayo Clinic, proving that light energy, or photon therapy, is able to help relieve pain and inflammation.
Light energy therapy stimulates the natural healing power of the cells in your body. Photon therapy is a simple, effective, non-pharmacological medical alternative to prescription medicine or invasive surgery. In many cases the management of acute or chronic injuries and post operative wounds now includes the use of photon therapy because it is quick, cost-effective, and easy to administer. Photon therapy is widely used in human medicine in many cosmetic applications.
Lumen Photon Therapy - a new system of photodynamic therapy products utilizing state-of-the-art technology, that can help provide a complete and lasting resolution of many health issues when coupled with a medical diagnosis. All Lumen? products are designed to help activate the natural healing processes in the body and can be used in the home, office, or while traveling. Lumen Photon Therapy is a adjunctive solution providing spectacular results in many cases.
Our products use safe, super-luminous light emitting diodes (LED’s) to produce photons at different wavelengths in the near-infrared/visible red spectrums. The FDA has approved these powerful, conveniently-sized models as capable of offering:
1) Increased local circulation (important for people with restricted circulation in the extremities)
2) Reduction of pain (neck, back, joint, etc.)
3) Improved range of motion
4)Muscle relaxation, offering decrease of tension and spasms
The mission of Lumen Photon Therapy, Inc. is to bring the benefits of photon therapy to those suffering from chronic or acutely painful and debilitating physical conditions and injuries.
Lumen Photon Therapy, Inc. is dedicated to creatively and professionally developing effective treatment protocols, training new technicians in the clinical use of photon therapy, and the expansion of the innovative field of photon therapeutic treatment.

FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES OUTLINED IN IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Place the diode array near or on the part of the body being treated. The suggested treatment time is between 15 and 60 minutes, two to three times per day. If unit every day the following guideline is suggested to allow the body to reset itself:
* 21 day use
* 7 day break
The Lumen 264 offers the therapeutic intensity of the Lumen 90 in a larger size. The Lumen 264 pad is made of flexible neoprene with 120 visible and 144 infrared LEDs. The pad measures 7 ” wide by 14 “ long, the diode surface measures 4 “ by 12 “ for treatment of large areas such as the back.

Lumen Photon Therapy and Carolina Cavitation Diagnostics are partnering in research to determine the efficacy of red and infrared light therapy in treatment of cavitations.
Using a combination of the cavitat scan for diagnostic purposes and Lumen? infrared equipment for treatment of infection and bone loss, preliminary results are very exciting, suggesting resolution of infection and successful regeneration of bone. We anticipate this research to verify the successful, non-invasive treatment of cavitation and expect to have farther documentation to offer very soon.
Lumen Photon Therapy is a leader in the emerging field of visible and infrared light therapy, with over 12 years of veterinary experience to serve as a basis for the current expansion into human treatment. Lumen? equipment is being used in our clinic and others across the country to successfully address a wide range of clinical applications.
