The mellinn650 is an approved 'Class II' medical device. It is a handy device that has used innovative low-level laser therapy (LLLT) technology as a tool for prevention and treatment against oral mucositis.
Order the mellinn20
The mellinn20 is a low-level laser therapy device in combination with blue light energy. The laser beams in combination with blue light energy penetrate the infected nail plate and targets on causative pathogens located in the nail bed.
Het gebruik van LLLT is “aan te bevelen” als een kansrijk en hulpmiddel bij de preventie en behandeling van orale mucositis. Die conclusie trekt een groep internationale tandheelkundigen uit een systematisch onderzoek naar laser- en ander lichttherapieën.
