Why Us

What Puts Us Ahead

There are many reasons why our technology has excelled in getting results.
Think you’ve heard about phototherapy before? Not like this, you haven’t.

FDA-Approved #K142256

Our phototherapy system is FDA-Approved as of 2015.
We are the first to achieve FDA-Approval for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature; for the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, sprains, strains, and muscle spasm, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain; relieving stiffness; promoting the relaxation of muscle tissue; and to temporarily increase local blood circulation where applied.

Rest assured that our devices are safe, non-invasive, thoroughly tested and approved. Go ahead, look us up: FDA-Approval #K142256

Full-Spectrum Light

Many of today’s light therapy devices on the market offer light at a single wavelength – a one-size-fits-all approach, which as we know just doesn’t work for everyone.
Our highly programmable system that allows us access to the full spectrum of red through infrared light. This is important because different parts of the body – skin, tissue, muscles, etc. – respond best to different wavelengths, as proven by countless research articles. Our device not only comes with these proven wavelengths as presets, but also allows us to manually input a frequency of red or infrared light between 1Hz and 20,000Hz.

Backed By Research

Not only is phototherapy a well-documented topic, but each treatment selected and programmed into our device is backed by sound research. Only recently have we been able to bring phototherapy to a recognized status thanks to today’s technological advances.
For a look at some academic articles, see our research page.

Multi-Disciplined Team

The LightMD Phototherapy System™ exists as a highly-efficient, medical-grade device unlike others because it is the culmination of knowledge from many different fields.
Although few in the beginning, LightMD was a team of highly-skilled experts in their respective fields (medicine, chiropractic, veterinary, engineering, manufacturing, programming, user-experience design, etc.). Together we were able to bring our efforts in biotech to fruition.

Denser Area of Light

The LightPads that are used emit light from hundreds of superluminous diodes per pad, providing a denser, richer area of light. Thanks to the high intensity SLDs, density, and coverage provides greater light absorption and efficiency.


Our phototherapy device comes equipped with our very own operating system, LightOS™, which allows for easy selection of preset treatments (set with light wavelengths that are well-researched) as well as an option for custom treatments, allowing for frequencies between 1Hz and 20,000Hz.
As we are continually working on improving our system, we chose to create something easily upgradable. Clinics or other buyers can look forward to keeping their devices up to date without having to buy a new one, and patients can look forward to always receiving the best LightMD has to offer.

Better Comfort

Our device comes equipped with our highly-flexible, patented LightPads™, which use a new type of flexible connector between sets of superluminous diodes (SLDs) creating a grid-like structure inside the hygienic polymeric pad. This grid provides superior flexibility in multiple directions, which allows it to better to contour around the body for greater comfort and coverage.
This new grid design also helps prevent SLD failure that is common with phototherapy devices that see stress from continuous flexing with everyday use.
