The LTU-904 laser is only ONLY lymphoedema treatment that has been trialled in a randomised double blind study. The laser works very effectively in about 30% of patients and with some effect in about 50% of patients.
No, anyone can use the LTU-904, (even in Queensland) however, we recommend that a therapist is consulted before and during the use of the laser. The are no State regulations that effect the use of the LTU-904.
The hand-held unit is the same wavelength as the scanning laser. The scanning laser has not been trialled in a double blind trial, but it is reasonable to expect that it would be as effective as the hand-held laser. The scanning laser is much more expensive and treatment times are usually around 1 hour.
