Natural healing with the power of light
Opton – high-power laser therapy up to 5000 mW.
The highly effective laser emits up to 4 Watt of power simultaneously on two wavelengths using an ergonomically designed applicator, thereby offering a very wide range of therapy. Two easily mounted spacers and an integrated calibration sensor ensure high-safety laser therapy.
The method is used very successfully by therapists worldwide. With Opton, Zimmer MedizinSysteme now offers a system that compactly combines all advantages of the treatment with the lowest operating and maintenance costs while providing optimum ease of use and maximum flexibility.
Appliance & Advantages
The high-power Opton laser is ideal for treating
- Musculoskelettal diseases
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Painful trigger points
- Neuralgia and skin disorders
The advantages of laser treatment are obvious:
- Perfect localisation
- High efficiency achieved in a very short time
- Direct and systemic effects
- Biostimulation and tissue regeneration as positive side effects
Two wavelengths in one device
Opton has two wavelengths in the near infrared range. Laser light in the infrared range has proven to be particularly effective in therapeutic use. Infrared lasers achieve positive results for the described indications. Both wavelengths are absorbed by body tissue (water, blood, melanin) to a much lesser extent than other wavelengths, for instance those in the visible range.
The 980 nm wavelength has a lower tissue-penetration capacity, is absorbed near the surface and has an analgesic effect via a reflex pathway.
The 810 nm wavelength has a far greater tissue-penetration capacity and has a biostimulant effect, resulting in an acceleration of cellular activity.
The simultaneous application of both wavelengths in a single treatment session optimises the therapeutic effect since superficial pain receptors as well as deeper tissue structures are stimulated. Both wavelengths are simultaneously emitted at the same power. The semiconductor used is a gallium arsenide diode.
5000 mW of power
The penetration depth of laser light is a function of power.
The extraordinarily high power of Opton means sufficient intensity to reach even deep tissue layers. The power of the Opton laser is infinitely variable up to 5000 mW.
Opton thereby combines the laser radiation of two suitable wavelengths with exceptionally high power.
Very simple to use
The colour touchscreen makes operation fast, clear and easy.
The touchscreen can be used to select the various indications. The therapist is provided with application recommendations for each indication as well as professional information about the treatment.
Safety without compromises
A comprehensive package of safety features ensures that application is absolutely safe, even at the high power of Opton: In addition to the multi-step laser activation with password protection, a safety foot switch, an emergency off button and the accompanying safety glasses ensure safety without compromises.
