45 years ago, following the discovery of laser technology, a new approach to treating an increasing number of illnesses emerged.
This approach originated from science, and it grew to be known for its non-invasive and non-toxic nature. Over the years, it has been successfully used - in laboratories, hospitals, clinics and private homes throughout the world. This approach goes under the name of low-level laser therapy, although it is also known as low-level laser irradiation, phototherapy and LLLT, amongst other names.
Today, coMra (Coherent Multi-radiances) has brought additional benefits to low-level lasers: by the use of magnetism, low-level ultrasound, and LED lights - all of which have an important role in the healing process.
The benefits of these different radiances have become apparent from developments in the scientific fields of biophysics and photobiology, as well as low-level laser technology, and as a result, they have been incorporated in the Delta Laser.
How coMra Works
coMra operates on a cellular level via a number of different mechanisms of action. The combination of Near-Infrared Laser, Colour Light Emitting Diodes, Magnetic Field and Ultrasound all play respective roles in stimulating the immune and regenerative functions of the human body. Therefore, treatments with coMra-Therapy act both locally at the site of a disease, and also systemically by means of light-induced release of chemical messengers and modulation of the nervous system.
The Near-Infrared Laser and Magnetic Field deliver energy directly to the site of a disease, penetrating from epidermis to inner organs (down to 5 cm) and restoring energy deficit in diseased cells by accelerating enzymatic synthesis of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
Colour LEDs initiate a number of signaling pathways inside cells, as well as between components of the immune and nervous systems. Intracellular signaling involves changes in reactive oxygen species, Ca2+, free radical NO° and pH. Irradiation of skin sensory nerves and immune cells cause a cascade of responses in the central nervous system and modulation of systemic immune responses.
Ultrasound increases the speed and efficiency of enzyme activity in cells, inter- and intracellular mass transport and other biochemical processes through non-destructive mechanical agitation.
Targets of coMra
Because of the universal action of the Delta at a cellular level, all types of diseased cells in connective, muscle, nervous and epithelial tissues can benefit from the radiances. The cells respond by increasing respiratory activity, enhancing cell proliferation that leads to tissue regeneration and improving resistance of cells to toxins, hypoxia and other stress factors.
Through supporting the functionality of immune cells, coMra plays a major role in stimulating the immune system and enhancing both innate and specific resistance to pathogens. In particular, it facilitates chemotactic and phagocytic activities of neutrophils and macrophages, increases lymphocyte population and modulates production of inflammatory messengers.
coMra-Therapy is remarkably effective in relieving acute pain and chronic pain associated with many diseases; for instance, fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy. As a neuroprotective therapy, coMra-Therapy can be successfully used in post-traumatic nerve repair, prevention of muscle atrophy and acute ischemic stroke.
*"After nearly 45 years of low intensity level light applications in humans with lasers (or any other optical to near infrared light sources) there are no known reports of any adverse side effects to the best of our knowledge."

Non-invasive blood irradiation with coMra-Therapy enhances oxygenation of tissues by photodissociation of oxyhemoglobin in the blood, as well as activating immune cells travelling in the blood. When coMra-Therapy is applied locally at the site of an injury peripheral and cerebral blood microcirculation is greatly increased.
The combination of the deeply penetrating Low-Level Laser, acting in concert with the Magnetic Field, together with the skin sensory nerve and immune cell actions of the Colour LEDs and Ultrasound, facilitates the treatment of all organs and systems of the human body.
The Delta User Guide includes more than 100 treatments for conditions in surgery, traumatology, otorhinolaryngology, stomatology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, gynaecology, urology, nephrology, proctology, neurology, endocrinology, autoimmune diseases, oncology, dermatology and general well-being.
The Delta Laser
coMra's methods of action are fully embodied in the Delta Laser - a portable and compact device comprised of the control unit, (Handset), and four interchangeable terminals.
The Medical terminal is used when treating medical conditions, for irradiating body surfaces and projections of inner organs and blood/lymph vessels.
The Aesthetic terminal with enhanced ultrasound is used in cosmetics and dermatology.
The elongated shape of the Probe terminal is suitable for irradiation of body orifices.
For treatments directly to the scalp, as well as hair care, the extended LED guides on the Meridian terminal can deliver radiances directly to the scalp and hair follicles.
Application of coMra-Therapy
The procedures for applying the Delta Laser are extensively covered in the accompanying User Guide. Treatment times per session vary from 5 minutes (for minor cuts) up to 3 hours 30 minutes (for comprehensive treatment of all the body's muscle groups in muscular dystrophy). The number of treatments necessary varies from one-time application (for a headache) to at least 4-8 months (for multiple sclerosis).
Safety of coMra
coMra-Therapy is a completely non-invasive and non-destructive approach to healing. The four types of radiances are used at such low power levels that they cannot damage the building blocks of an organism: cells and protein molecules. Therefore, coMra-Therapy is entirely safe when used according to the Operating Instructions. coMra-Therapy can be safely used on open wounds, on babies, pregnant women and elderly people.*
