common.study.values.description

Laser Therapy for At-Home Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers - Canada

The global prevalence of diabetes is on the rise and with it increase in prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). These recalcitrant wounds are difficult to manage and pose a heavy economic burden. Photobiomodulation (low level laser) is used for acceleration of wound healing. The current study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of B-cure laser, a home-use low-level laser device, for acceleration of diabetic foot ulcer healing over standard treatment.

Device - B-Cure Laser Pro

The B-Cure Laser Pro is a portal, non-invasive low-level laser therapy device, that emits light in the near infrared (808nm) over an area of 1X4.5 cm2 with power output of 250mW, and energy dose of 5J/min

Device - Sham laser

The sham laser device is externally identical to the B-Cure Laser Pro and emit the same guiding light, but does not emit the therapeutic near infrared rays
