Photobiomodulation (BL)

Photobiomodulation

Photobiomodulation is the mechanism by which non-ionizing optical radiation in the visible and near-infrared spectral range is absorbed by endogenous chromophores to elicit photo-physical and photo-chemical events at various biological scales. Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) is a form of light therapy based on the principles of photobiomodulation. It involves the use of light sources including lasers, LEDs, and broadband light, in the visible and infrared spectrum to cause physiological changes and therapeutic benefits. PBMT has the potential to revolutionize modern healthcare and is being used by veterinarians, dentists and physical therapists for a number of applications including tissue regeneration, pain relief and regulation of inflammation. New areas of research include as age-related macular degeneration, spinal cord injury, and traumas and pathologies of the brain. The focus of the Photobiomodulation Technical Group will be to develop guidelines to help ensure safety, efficacy and scientific accuracy in photobiomodulation research and technology development.
