Users manual for the LTS

Introduction

Congratulation on purchasing an Equine LTS.
Please read this user manual carefully, to ensure optimal use of this system. The Equine LTS, 
is not be used as an replacement for a veterinarian visit. In the case of accident and trauma, 
always contact a veterinarian. 

 

Background
Much has happened with laser technology, since the discovery of the positive effect 
of laser light, within specific weave length in 1986. The real breakthrough however did not occur until 1998, 
where a research team headed by Dr Wheler. During their research into growing plants in microgravity 
for NASA Advanced Life Support. Discovered that laser light in the range of blue and red, promoted growth 
in plants while in space, and build a portable Low Level Laser (LLL) unit. The Grow Lights consist of light 
emitting diodes (LED), and were taken into space to grow plants in microgravity. 
One of the major problems, having humans in microgravity during long periods of time, has always been, 
that the human body do not heal or heal extremely slow, while in microgravity. Wounds and injures, sustained in 
outer space, only heals after the astronauts returns back to earth. This had NASA worried, since even small 
injuries could be potentially fatal, if the astronaut was not promptly return to earth, thereby jeopardizing 
long term space missions.
Soon it became apparent, that the astronauts tending the vegetables and plants in the grow lights, while in 
microgravity, healed faster. This launched the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center research, into the effect of 
LLL on living tissue. Especially lights with wavelengths within the range of 450nm - 980nm. Which would become 
known as the NASA LED's.
Equine LTS comes with 3 different specific wavelengths of light. Blue light 450nm, will effect the top layer of 
the skin and hair. It's antibacterial, reduces scare tissue and increase hair growth. Red light 660nm, passes 
through the skin and into the muscles and ligaments, with upto 23 cm. It will increase the regeneration of cells, 
with up till 200.
Infrared light 850nm, cannot be observed by the eye, it is outside the visible range for humans. The infrared 
light, penetrates the deepest into the muscles.

 

Laser or LED
Laser is monochromatic light, which is light of a specific color, such as red, infrared, blue and green light. 
White light, such as the light from an ordinary light bulb, is a mixture of different wavelengths of light, 
therefor not considered monochromatic. Laser light is coherent light, all the weaves are synchronize, to form a 
single small beam of very concentrated lights, which can reach infinity.
LEDs are also monochromatic light, as in red, blue, green and infrared. But the light is not coherent light, so 
the light weaves aren't synchronized into one small beam of light. This gives the light a larger area, therefor 
LEDs can be used to treat a larger area, at one time.
Here comes the funny part. All modern lasers, are made with LEDs, monochromatic non-coherent light. The light is 
passes through a filter, to synchronize the light, making the light coherent and the concentrated with a lens.
The difference between laser and LED, is a filter and a lens, which determent the spreading and the concentration 
of the light. LEDs are often referred to as Low-Level-Laser-Therapy.
 

What the Equine LTS can be used for

Ligament injuries
Equine LTS helps reducing the inflammation and pain. The inflammation can often cause more damage to the ligament, 
than the injury. By reducing the inflammation, the healing process can start. 

 

Preventive
The Equine LTS can be used after strenuous exercise, to prevent damage and help restore muscles and ligament. It 
reduces lactic acid in the muscle tissue and decrease muscle soreness.

 

Fungus  
The blue light, is antibacterial and helps reducing  fungus. Please continue the treatment, after all visible signs 
of fungus is gone, since the microscopic fungus, still can be present for some time.

 

Wound healing 
Helps expedite wound healing and reduce chances for an infection, while minimizing scare tissue. 

 

Muscle injuries and soreness
Equine LTS can be sure for all forms of muscle injuries or soreness.

 

Pain reduction
Equine LTS reduces pain with up to $47\%$ during the first treatment.

 

Arthritis
Arthritis is an inflammation disease in the joints. Treating with the LTS, reduces inflammation and pain. 
 
Important and practical information
 
  •  Only apply the LTS on a dry clean surface.
  • Place the LTS on the injured area and turn it on, for 5 minutes. Repeat the treatment daily, for 3-5 minutes. 
  • Do not use for more than 5 minutes at one place. The treatment can be repeated 2-3 times a day. 
  • For ligament injuries, carefully fold the LTS around the leg. Do not bend the rows of light. Fasten the LTS 
    with an elastic band, make sure its not too tight and only fixate at one point, not over and under a joint. 
    The warranty will not cover bending of the light. 
  • Do not leave the horse out of sight, during treatment.
  • Only use the power source, purchases with the LTS.
  • Do not look directly into the light.
  • Carefully clean the LED light with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol.
  • Do Not wash the LTS.
  • Use the carrying bag for storage. Do not fold  across the light.
  • Do not stand, lay up on or place heavy object on top of the LTS. 
  • Do not twist the LTS. 
 
The rechargeable battery
On the side of the battery is a switch, to turn the battery on/off. The switch has to be turned ON for the battery 
to able to charge. Charge the battery for 24 hours before 
first use. Do not store the battery in a cold, it will discharge just as a mobile phone.
Disconnect the LTS from the battery, while the battery is being charged. The charger for the battery, is only to be 
used for the battery. Do not use any other charger for the battery. 
 
Reclamation
For reclamation, please send an email to info@equinels.com, attach a picture of the damage or broken part.
