CUBE High Power Laser

CUBE High Power Laser

A non-opioid treatment for pain relief.
With the current worsening opioid epidemic, the importance of non-opioid treatment alternatives to help patients with acute and chronic pain has become increasingly important.

One such non-opioid alternative is laser therapy, a clinically-proven adjacent therapy modality widely used in clinical practice for managing pain and inflammation.

Chattanooga has been offering a range of low level lasers for more than 20 years, and now completes the portfolio with a High Power Laser series: the Chattanooga CUBE.

Intense Super Pulse

CUBE's ISP mode promotes deep tissue penetration without added heat. This exclusive technology means that you can use the same energy but at maximum power without pulling strength away from the laser.

Indications

  • Temporary increase in local blood circulation
  • Temporary relief of minor muscle and joint aches
  • Minor pain and stiffness associated with arthritis
  • Relaxation of muscles
  • Muscle spasms

Chattanooga CUBE: Dynamic Therapy

CUBE technology allows optimal effect through the unique ability to use and modulate several pulse frequencies as well as adapt to influencing factors specific to the patient such as skin color and level of chronicity of injury. We call this Dynamic Therapy.

Graphically-intuitive and customizable CUBE therapy

CUBE allows adjustment of energy delivered depending on the factors involved, thanks to selected menus that are graphically intuitive.

Increased power and the wavelengths available play a crucial role in the success of the laser therapy.

Different treatments adapted to level of pain

According to the kind of pain experienced by the patient, CUBE makes it possible to select specific treatments.

Adjustable for all skin phototypes

CUBE, besides analysing body morphology and the types of tissues, also takes into account another crucial factor for our skin: melanin.

Thanks to its innovative parameters, CUBE recognises the skin?s six phototypes, taking into account every pre-set protocol variant.

Tissue-adapted parameter settings

Every CUBE protocol consists of a dynamic parameter setting, to be chosen according to the different types of tissues.

Laser light & Biostimulation

Biostimulation is the ability to stimulate and promote tissue growth and repair at the cellular level. The wavelengths of laser light are mainly absorbed by the chromophores, molecules located inside cells able to convert laser light. The products of this process are indispensable substances for the repair, growth and proliferation of cells. Using the appropriate wavelength, the maximum therapeutic effect on the target tissue can be achieved.

Depending on the modulation of the wavelength and on the different parameters set, different effects can be achieved:
Analgesic effect - laser light converting into heat

Laser light is absorbed and partly scattered in the target tissue and thereby largely converted into heat. This thermal stimulus to the nociceptors of the skin affects the peripheral neurological tract and polarizes the neurons important for our pain perception.

This polarization activates the neural and humoral endorphinergic pain inhibition system with immediate pain relief as a result.

Anti-Inflammatory effect

Inflammation is necessary for healing. The challenge for the clinician is to control this acute inflammatory stage in order to allow the next stage of healing. The HPL units effectively modulate the inflammatory processes secondary to their deep stimulation of tissues. This deep stimulation triggers vasodilatation and increased oxygenation, which activates the main metabolic activities and resolves the inflammatory process quicker.

Regenerative effect

The described acceleration of healing processes primarily manifests in the form of fibroblast activation. The actual cascade of healing is fueled by increased ATP synthesis and increased protein synthesis combined with cellular proliferation. Because of the non-thermal nature of this activation, only small amounts of laser energy are required. The attenuation of the laser light in the tissue depends on the localization of the lesion and determines the laser power required. Deeper structures such as tendons or joint capsules may require the application of higher doses to the surface.
