How does Laser Watch Work for Simultaneous Laser Blood Irradiation and Laser Acupuncture at the Wrist?

Overall, laser medicine has come a long way over the past few years. The latest innovation is the so-called laser watch, a system slightly larger than a wristwatch. Method: Wear the laser watch on your wrist, and you can simultaneously and continuously irradiate acupuncture points or laser blood. Outcome: This leads to new and promising treatments for different diseases. This article presents and briefly discusses the first pilot measurements of a laser watch. Conclusion: laser watch is feasible;

In the field of medicine, attempts are constantly being made to combine different methods and procedures for the benefit of patients in order to achieve improvements with regard to diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities. Therefore, the miniaturization and availability of individual systems and system components also play a large role. A good example is the new laser watch, which on the one hand applies laser acupuncture and laser blood irradiation simultaneously in the wrist area and on the other hand represents a practical and appropriately sized piece of equipment.

It is worth mentioning that there are currently many different "laser watch" systems produced mainly in Asia. However, to the authors' current state of knowledge, quantifiable effects of the stimulation methods (laser acupuncture and laser blood irradiation) have never been documented. In this article, an innovative laser watch (manufactured by ATANG in China and already sold in various regions of the world) is presented for the first time along with initial scientific data.

Methods, technical aspects and possible indications
The technical data of the laser watch is listed below. The laser consists of a GaA/As semiconductor and operates at a wavelength of 650 nm. The lasers installed in the watch consist of 10 individual laser beams for the wrist and an additional adapter for nasal stimulation. The output power is 5 mW, but can also be adjusted. The device operates at an ambient temperature of -20 to +40°C and a relative humidity of ≤85%. Atmospheric pressure should be between 86 and 106 kPa. Laser watches can be used with variable exposure periods of 10-60 minutes (Figure 1).

The characteristics of this equipment are: energy saving, light carbon treatment, environmental protection and simple operation. Also, the device was praised for its low energy consumption and long-lasting performance. The device has a color LCD. The small size and thus low weight are positive features, which means that the device can also be easily transported.

According to the website promoting the product, the laser watch is not suitable for cancer patients, pregnant women or people with bleeding disorders. Children should only use the watch under adult supervision. It is recommended that the elderly and sensitive groups be treated with low power and short time first. The intensity and duration can then be increased or extended individually based on the body's response.

According to the cited sources, laser watches are suitable for people with high blood pressure and diabetes, among other things. In addition, the laser watch is intended to be used in the treatment of cerebral blood clots and strokes and in the prevention of cardiac arrest. It should also be used in the field of painkillers. General pain conditions as well as sports injuries, wounds, fractures, arthritis and joint pain should be treated with laser watches. Besides that, according to said sources, laser watches can be used together with nasal stimulators (Fig. 1c) for different forms of rhinitis (allergic, acute, chronic) as well as for sinusitis or nasal polyps. According to the manufacturer, hyperviscosity, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and various cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are further indications for its use.

As mentioned earlier, laser watches irradiate designated acupuncture points on the wrist. During this procedure, laser light with a wavelength of 650 nm penetrates the blood vessel wall. The tissue under the laser watch absorbs the energy of the laser to produce lipoprotein lipase. Subsequently, the microcirculation and oxygen delivery capacity of red blood cells are improved. As a result, the blood is cleaned and, according to the manufacturer's information, insulin secretion can again reach normal levels.

As mentioned earlier, the Laser Watch can also illuminate the inner area of ​​the nose using the included adapter. The interior area of ​​the nose contains a large number of capillaries. Stimulates the nerves in the nose and improves blood circulation in the skull, thereby improving local microcirculation. Furthermore, more oxygen should be provided to the brain as a result of the stimulation.

The main function of the laser watch is to irradiate the radial artery, ulnar artery (Figure 2), Neiguan and further points (Figure 3). Thus, simultaneous irradiation of important areas of the body can be provided. The device includes an automatic shut-off feature to ensure precise stimulation timing is observed. It is specially shaped to fit a person's wrist to ensure a perfect fit.

Acupoints stimulated by laser watches

Some devices have two output modes (pulsed and continuous) [6]. However, the manufacturer also states some warnings about handling laser watches [6]. Of course, avoid looking directly into the laser beam. Likewise, operating an active laser watch without corresponding protective equipment (eyewear) is dangerous. According to the manufacturer's data, laser watches are contraindicated for patients with cardiac pacemakers for unknown reasons [6].

The latest scientific research on laser watches
In a pilot trial by our research group, it was possible to demonstrate a temporary increase in total heart rate variability (HRV) during stimulation with a laser watch in healthy volunteers (Fig. 4). However, after the 20-min stimulation was completed, HRV returned to the initial level again.

HRV during laser watch stimulation. An increase in the 0.05-0.15 Hz frequency band can be observed (arrows), where effects on the blood pressure control system, inter alia, are manifested during photostimulation. X axis: time; Y axis: frequency.

If one compares the data of this study with previous data, where a similar wavelength (658 nm) was also used for the red laser etc. at the Neiguan point, it should be mentioned that there was no significant increase in HRV under the red laser in the preliminary study Stimulate. The effect of increased HRV during laser watch exposure may be attributed to simultaneous stimulation of Neiguan (and other points) as well as the radial artery, with an additive effect on HRV [7].

An even more important point, according to the manufacturer, is that laser watches can improve microcirculation. There have been many publications describing the validated improvement of microcirculation when using yellow laser light, for example [8]. Of course, such basic research must also be carried out using laser watches that run on red lasers. Preliminary signs of improved microcirculation with the laser watch have been documented (Fig. 5)

Improvement of microcirculation (15% increase) during 20 minutes of laser stimulation applied via a laser watch. At the same time, an increase in temperature in the area of the fingertip of the index finger can be observed.

In addition to light exposure in the popliteal region [9], Campbell and Murphy were initially able to determine changes in biorhythms by means of body temperature and melatonin concentrations [10], laser blood irradiation, and laser acupuncture via a "watch" provided in the wrist region by this method. A non-invasive, practical approach. Using a laser watch appears to have physiological effects. The method is currently being scientifically validated, but only partially, meaning there remains a significant research need.

Tradition and innovation<br />Laser watches are a great example of integrative medicine. It includes different forms of stimulation (laser acupuncture and laser blood irradiation). It was developed in the context of traditional Chinese medicine, but using modern electronics and optics. It represents photostimulation of traditional acupoints by non-thermal laser irradiation. We are sure that this approach will be widely accepted in integrative medicine, for example by needle phobic patients. Also suitable for patients who are immunocompromised or have bleeding disorders and practitioners who are not acupuncturists. Integrative medicine is a means of combining complementary and alternative medicine or traditional medicine with any effective method or treatment of western medicine to establish new and sophisticated ways to effectively treat, diagnose or explore various complex diseases or symptoms , Avoid misdiagnosis, side effects or unilateral treatment to improve quality of life and prolong life. In our opinion, laser watches meet these criteria. The traditional theory of laser watches can be exemplified by Neiguan (PC6). Stimulation of this point has been shown to stabilize blood pressure [13] and increase fingertip microcirculation [14]. All this can now also be achieved by wearing a laser watch. In the future, the device will be further studied in a Sino-Austrian joint project to treat patients with lifestyle-related diseases such as burnout syndrome (diagnosis of traditional Chinese medicine: qi deficiency).
