Perfectly controlled and synchronized energy
MLS® Laser Therapy arose from ASAlaser scientific research in order to overcome traditional lasertherapy limits in efficiency and safety and to exploit high and low power advantages in a better and simultaneous way.
We therefore perfected a new refined and complex impulse, which transfers light energy to anatomic structures – therapy targets – in an efficient way. The energy, directed by a newly conceived optical system, is distributed over a wide target area in a homogenous way, activating the photoreceptors and also involving the tissue below. The MLS® (Multiwave Locked System) impulse is based on two combined and synchronized emissions: one has the same power as LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy), while the other has the typical characteristics of High Power. The supply methods and the correct balancing of these two powers means the positive effects of HighPower and LLLT can be used together and safely.
The MLS® impulse modulates cellular metabolism and improves the supply of energy. Indeed, the increase of PP1 (Protein phosphatase 1) created by the therapeutic process, regulates the muscle relaxation/contraction process and stimulates the accumulation of glycogen supplies (energy source needed for muscular activity).
The thermal effects of MLS® Laser Therapy generate indirect photothermal effects that in turn mechanically stress the cells. This kind of stress favours tropism, homeostasis and cell differentiation in muscles and all the other tissues with a mechanical function: it favours the recovery of damaged tissue.
The MLS® impulse produces measured thermal effects and always remains under the danger threshold. It stimulates biochemical reactions and vasodilatation, increasing the ratio of oxygen and nutrients in the treated area. Moderate vasodilatation favours inflammatory process recovery and oedema reabsorption.
These results, together with the analgesic action of the treatment itself, are at the basis of the rapid recovery from painful symptomatology indicated in numerous clinical studies.
The kind of technology that expresses MLS® laser impulse functionality was cleared by the US FDA.

MAGNETOTHERAPY: THE TRADITION OF UNIVERSAL THERAPY
Magnetotherapy is physical and based on the application of specific magnetic fields on the human body.
The magnetic fields carry out an essential function in biological life; just think that the Earth itself is a giant magnet and that many living beings adjust their life according to the variations of the Earths magnetism.
Magnetic fields are produced normally in nature, but for therapeutic use they are produced artificially to promote different therapeutic effects.
Magnetotherapy is indicated for treating pain, for reducing inflammation and oedema. Clinical studies, in addition, have shown that it can be used for treating osteoporosis and regenerating both superficial tissues and fractured bones.
It is used in orthopaedics, sports medicine, physiotherapy and by professionals who use this instrumental physical therapy in different specialist branches.
Given its therapeutic effects, it can be used alone or in combination with other therapy techniques.
A low intensity and low frequency magnetic field alone is not used, but a set of several factors that optimise both the application method and the therapeutic results:
Choice of the magnetic field and the wave shape. Application method, contact or targeted and general or total. Different applicators. Manual or automatic treatment method. Equipment with different methods for transferring the magnetic field to the tissues. The therapeutic expectations can be briefly indicated as follows:
Non-abrasive and painless treatment Contracture relieving and relaxing effect on the muscles Antalgic, anti-inflammatory and draining effect Tissue repair, even deep.
Since 1983 we have been working to become the international landmark in lasertherapy and magnetotherapy for multidisciplinary use: from physiotherapy to rehabilitation, from pain management – both muscular and articular – to sports medicine and veterinary medicine as well.
ASAlaser means specialisation – i.e. developing therapeutic solutions based on laser sources and magnetic fields – and above all research: integrated and free, authoritative and open, a link between science and production (product development), theory and application, ethics and market.
Specialisation and research are the two strong points of our identity and they represent the synthesis of an entrepreneurial project based on a radical reversal of traditional perspectives: our research studies, interprets and stimulates lasertherapy evolution; it produces and distributes a specific culture (through publications, participation in international conventions, collaboration with universities and institutes, both private and public); it takes into account clinical studies and feedback. It therefore makes it possible to perfect therapeutic solutions and produce efficient medical devices that are tested in compliance with stern and complete procedures and protocols.
Research is not confined to validating the quality of our equipment: it is, in fact, an indispensable premise. Our aim is not large numbers, but good results achieved with reliable and safe products that are easy to use (for doctors and health operators), and ergonomic (for patients). They can be used alone or combined with other according to the pathology, to always obtain maximum therapeutic efficiency.
Mission To become the world reference point in the expertise, production and development of therapeutic solutions based on laser sources and magnetic fields, through continuous multidisciplinary research and the sharing of knowledge with human health specialists and vets.
