Polaris HP S

Laser therapy

High power and biostimulation laser therapy

 This is one of the few units which allows for carrying out treatment procedures with the use of high power and biostimulation laser radiation.

The effectiveness of the therapy with the use of Polaris HP unit is based on the application of two wavelengths. A combination of quick and efficient thermal effect as well as slower but long- -lasting effect of biostimulation impact is achieved thanks to this application.

Built-in laser sources allow for the operation with peak power reaching up to 18 W in pulse mode. Maximum average power is limited to 10 W , which is still regarded as a very high value which might cause excessive thermal effect. At the time of exceeding the average power of 4W, the unit displays an additional warning to prevent excessive overheating.

In order to enable efficient and precise deep intratissue laser therapy, a special DILA adapter has been developed (Deep Intratissue Laser Adapter) It is specifically designed optical system allowing for laser beam formation in such a way to compensate the power loss in the surface tissues. The application of adapter reduces the thermal effect in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Another advantage is more precise location of the treatment site. DILT method and DILA adapter are unique solutions of ASTAR company and they are covered by registered trademark property protection.

In order to reduce thermal effect, pulse mode is applied. Then the laser high power is applied, while the average power is reduced. This solution allows for simultaneous deep tissue penetration and protection against overheating.

In manual mode, there is a possibility to set power, frequency and duty factor independently for each of the high power laser sources.

Apart from DILA adapter it is possible to use two types of application adapters which give 1 cm2 or 5 cm2 treatment radiated area.

The unit is compatible with all types of low level laser applicators manufactured by ASTAR company. It is possible to connect point probes, scanning and cluster laser applicators. By this option, the unit may be used for performing biostimulation laser therapy treatment procedures.

Starting laser therapy procedures, we may take advantage of the encyclopedia, ie. built-in list of preset programs with an extensive description of the treatment methodology. Therapist may also create own programs as well as treatment sequences and save them in the unit’s internal memory.

Comfort of operation is provided by a large, 7” inch touch screen and an applicator equipped with a key to start and stop laser emission.
