Laser Therapy Toronto

Ace Physio currently employs the TerraQuant LS50 laser package which features the LS50 laser shower emitter, ‘the king of emitter probes’. Our TerraQuant LS50 offers the most power and deepest penetration available in FDA cleared cold lasers. Our state of the art lasers allow us to effective treat large surface areas, and get deep into the tissues and joints.

TQ LS50-6D (Rectangular Laser Shower)

  • 30 cm2 coverage area
  • 6 GaAs Super Pulsed Laser (50 W (50,000mw); 905 nm wavelength)
  • 4 Infrared emitting Diodes (60 mW; 875 nm wavelength)
  • 4 Red light emitting Diodes (7.5 mW; 660 nm wavelength)

The Terraquant LS-50-6D emitter is the highest end emitter and has the largest coverage area of any emitter in the Terraquant series.

The TerraQuant device is the only device available today (in Canada and Worldwide) which combines together low level pulse laser radiation, and other radiations with clinical therapeutic modalities such as; pulsating infrared radiation, visible red light and static magnetic fields, providing their synergistic and therapeutic effects. Incorporating all these radiances in one apparatus, achieves rapid and efficient clinical effects within a relatively short time.

What is wrong with the competitions Lasers? vs. our Super Pulsed Lasers

First, the problems with the competitions Lasers
Limits of Class I through Class III continuous and modulated lasers

The fixed level of power is too low to deliver photons beyond the surface of the skin, making them ineffective in delivering photons to deep tissues.

Limits of Class IV continuous lasers

The increase in the power of continuous wave lasers increases photon delivery to deep tissues, but in many cases, it also increases the amount of the heat generated. This heat increases the potential risk of unwanted or destructive thermal effects and damages to the retina requiring clinicians to exercise additional FDA implemented controls to ensure patient and practitioner safety. With Terraquant, there is never a risk of thermal damage.

When comparing technology, some laser devices may offer pulsed mode. Do not confuse them with super pulsed lasers. Unlikes super pulsed lasers, pulsed lasers are created by “chopping the beam” — mechanically turning the laser on and off, much like duty cycle. Their depth is limited by comparison to the super pulsed technology due to the decreased power created by the duty cycle of the device.

Advantages of Ace Physio’s Super Pulsed Lasers:

  1. More Power = More Photonic Energy
    Advanced Semi-Conductor laser diode delivers higher power pulses of Photonic Energy in thousands of milliwatts without burning tissue.
  2. Increases in peak power improve depth penetration of energy into tissue
    Super Pulsed Infrared Laser (905 nm) is the essential component. TerraQuant’s super pulsed laser is the fastest in the world, delivering a pulse at billionths of a second. Combined with 25,000 mW or 50,000 mW of peak power, the result is a higher concentration of light energy, or photons, driven deeper into the target tissue, without the risk of burning the tissue.

    Super pulsing allows for deeper penetration than a laser of the same wavelength that is not super pulsed but has the same average output power. This is because ultimately short pulses allow for quick absorption at the cellular level. And the period between pulses promotes a better environment for enhanced cell communication, leading to an optimum pain relief and accelerated healing. When comparing technology, some laser devices may offer pulsed mode. Do not confuse them with super pulsed lasers. Unlike super pulsed lasers, pulsed lasers are created by “chopping the beam”-mechanically turning the laser on and off, much like duty cycle. Their depth is limited in comparison to super pulsed technology due to the decreased power created by the duty cycle of the device.

  3. Breakthrough in Thermal Barrier
    Super Pulsed Laser produces a high peak impulse of intense light for a fraction of a second. Thus, there are no damaging thermal effects in the tissue because the pulses are of very short duration.
  4. Maximum Photonic Density
    The power density during these very high pulses yields an extremely high photon flux and saturation, further delivering a stronger therapeutic effect into the tissue.
  5. Safety
    The Super Pulsed Laser Technology provides more energy and penetrates deeper than comparable non-super pulsed lasers but does not generate excessive damaging heat.
