The Anodyne Therapy System is an FDA cleared infrared medical device that increases circulation and decreases pain. Preliminary studies indicate that Anodyne Infrared Therapy may help diabetic peripheral neuropathy, soft tissue injuries, wound healing, and more. The Anodyne Infrared Therapy System is currently used in hospitals, clinics, physical therapy centers, long-term care facilities, and by private healthcare providers, including our military.
Statistically, 16 million people or one in every 20 people in the U.S. has diabetes and the prevalence of diabetic peripheral neuropathy is approaching 100% at 5 years after diagnosis. In addition, many patients have neuropathy and its debilitating complications before they are even diagnosed with diabetes! As people age, the prevalence grows. In fact, in the Medicare population, the incidence of diabetes is 20%! We find that there is a „built in‰ population of these patients in every therapy/outpatient clinic. These patients can be identified by observing gait, balance abnormalities and foot pain when treating for other conditions.
The following conditions have been researched with the Anodyne Treatment. Anodyne treatment has been proven to be beneficial in all cases.
Neuropathy—Loss of Protective Sensation
Neuropathy—Loss of Sensation, Gait and Balance, Falls
Neural Function—Nerve Conduction Velocity
Increased Wound Healing
