FLUXMEDICARE® V2 uses light diffusion technology with unique properties known as Textile-PDT. This T-PDT Photodynamic Therapy medical device is composed of a luminous textile connected to a laser source.
How is our technology exclusive?
The light comes from optical fibres directly inserted into the textile structure. This technology is a patented knitting process developed by MDB Texinov®.
It has numerous advantages:
No heat emitted by the textile (1)
Unique light homogeneity
Textile flexibility and conformability
Several textile formats available depending on the area to be treated
Demonstrated treatment efficacy (2)
Even with a reduced light dose the treatment remains effective: official publication of the clinical study (2) available from the “British Journal of Dermatology”.
The average illumination delivered by the luminous textile is uniform over the entire treated area. The textile is totally conformable and adapts to the patient’s morphology. Therefore all damaged areas are treated equally.
- Wavelength: 638 nm (red light by laser diode)
- Light dose (fluence): 12 J/cm²
- Average irradiance value: 1,3 mW/cm²
- Maximum effective irradiance surface area : 360 cm²
