The first laser was developed in 1960. In 1967, A Hungarian professor of medicine named Andre Mester, M.D., discovered that accelerated wound healing occurred with low intensity laser irradiation of wounds. Dr. Mester is considered the father of laser therapy. He published multiple papers throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s on scientific investigation and therapeutic application of ruby laser and helium neon laser.
In the late 1970s diode lasers were invented. This allowed low-cost, high-wattage lasers to become marketable, and revolutionized modern society for their application ranging from scanners to CD players, to optical transmission of data. Most lasers today are diode lasers either using gallium aluminum arsenide as a substrate or gallium arsenide as a semiconductor substrate.
The most common wavelengths are in the 790-to-970 nanometer ranges. The K-laser is a revolutionary medical therapy laser utilizing dual gallium aluminum arsenide lasers specifically engineered for the highly therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths 970 nm and 790 nm. These wavelengths have significant unique properties for cell stimulation and pain suppression. The K-laser is a medical breakthrough therapy device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes.
