NIR Laser Light Therapy – It is not an uncommon occurrence for any horse to sustain an open wound injury. Lacerations, abrasions, and deep wounds
The tissue penetration depth of lasers depends largely on their wavelength.
Penetration depth is a measure of how deeply light can penetrate into a medium. Knowledge of the penetration depth of tissue at a particular wavelength is even more critical for laser phototherapy guidance. In the wavelength range of 600–1600 nm, scattering prevails over absorption, and light penetrates to a depth of 8–10 mm.
