Erchonia’s Low Level Laser Clinical Research

Erchonia works through an Investigational Review Board to ensure the protocol is acceptable to the FDA.

Clinical trials depending on their scope can take years to conduct. Erchonia Corporation makes this investment, as clinical trials are the foundational component of 510(k) submissions. Not all clinical trials result in market clearance by the FDA and not all FDA clearance is dependent on the submitter’s clinical data; however; Erchonia is committed to advance Laser Healthcare™ through sponsored clinical trials as doing so ensures the protocols are developed by Erchonia, making Erchonia and the physicians working on our behalf, the most knowledgeable to teach the protocol and making protocols themselves and intellectual assets, patentable. The following is a list of some of Erchonia’s clinical research.

CLINICALLY PROVEN RESULTS: THE PEDro
30/45 of the randomized controlled trials (RCTs)2 on rESWT listed in the PEDro database, were performed with the Swiss DolorClast®
In 80% of these studies, the Swiss DolorClast® resulted in better clinical outcome than the control group
In the remaining 20% of these studies either not enough energy was applied or patients with indications not approved for the Swiss DolorClast® were included
