qmd® combined laser-cryo-thermal devices

A complete system of laser and cryo-thermal.

qmd® lasers are able to deliver the following modes: continuous wave, pulsed wave, superpulsed wave, and the excluive qmd® harmonic pulsation.

Therefore, qmd® devices produce not only analgesic effects but also anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, bio-stimulant and decontracting effects.

Cold therapy is the most widespread rehabilitation method in Northern Europe.

With the qmd® cryo-thermal it is possible to generate the cryo effect (hypothermia from -15 °C to +5 °C), the thermo effect (hyperthermia from + 25 °C to + 45 °C), the thermal shock (the temperature drops by 30 °C in a short time) and the exclusive contrast therapy® (application of alternating hot and cold cycles).

The combination of qmd® lasers and the qmd® cryo-thermal enhances the anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, draining and analgesic effects.

laser therapy

The laser is a source of electromagnetic bright radiation.

Laser therapy is based on the possibility of supplying the tissues with electromagnetic energy in the form of photons, with recognized therapeutic effects:

  • anti-inflammatory on the articulation and muscles;
  • analgesic on nerve fibers;
  • biostimulant and regenerative on soft tissue and connective tissue;
  • vasodilator on the microcirculation (thus, improving peripheral circulation);
  • anti-inflammatory and anti-edema (the reabsorption of the inflammation mediators and of any liquid accumulations is obtained).

Laser therapy is used for the treatment of the following pathologies:

  • rheumatoid arthritis;
  • neck pain;
  • articular pains;
  • carpal tunnel syndrome;
  • back pain;
  • arthrosis.

cryotherapy and thermotherapy

Cryotherapy is a physical therapy performed through cold and is used in the treatment of:

  • recent trauma: the vasoconstriction induced by the cold prevents the edema expansion;
  • after-effects of trauma: the cold reduces the perception of pain, the muscle reflex contraction and the post-traumatic edema;
  • bursitis, arthrosynovitis, tendonitis: the cold exerts an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect;
  • inflammatory arthropathy: the cold exerts an anti-inflammatory action useful in rheumatic diseases with an inflammatory imprint.

The thermotherapy is instead a physical therapy performed through heat. The heat increases the blood flow, promotes the elimination of waste accumulated in the tissues, increases the oxygenation, accelerates all the biochemical reactions of the organism and has an analgesic and myorelaxing effect.

The thermotherapy is used in the treatment of:

  • bruises, sprains, bursitis, muscle strains and tears;
  • syndromes with spinal muscular contractions;
  • muscle spasms caused by fatigue because it favors the elimination of lactic acid accumulated in the muscle;
  • preparation for physical exercise for the muscle warming phase;
  • preparation for the execution of physiotherapy exercises

thermal shock and contrast therapy®

Pathologies treatable with the thermal shock are:

  • rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory diseases in general;
  • back pain;
  • osteoarthritis;
  • muscle problems;
  • acute injuries;
  • post-operative convalescence.

Contrast therapy® is a physical therapy that consists of applying cycles of hot and cold and it is found to be ideal in the treatment of edema, pain, muscle contractures, inflammation of ligaments, aponeurosis and periosteum.
