ACTIVET PRO COLD LASER THERAPY

Promotes Healing and Increases Circulation

ACTIVet PRO provides more power and faster treatment times without raising skin temperature, making it the safest high powered cold laser on the market.

The blue LED light accelerates wound repair and reduces bacteria in wounds, providing your horse with a safe, fast and drug-free recovery.

Multi Radiance technology has proven its technology safely delivers the most light to deep tissue and facilitates absorption.

In clinical studies, Super Pulsed Lasers beat Class IV Lasers in safety, controlling inflammation mitigating pain, infection control and wound care, setting a new standard for veterinary laser therapy.

An increase in power can shorten treatment times and provide powerful pain relief. However, unlike high powered Class IV lasers, the ACTIVet PRO increases power without the unwanted heat. 

The synchronous use of high power super pulsed laser, and ultra-bright infrared, red and blue LEDs optimizes the biological effects of the entire phototherapeutic window to accelerate healing and reduce pain.
