Psoria-Shield’s FDA cleared, patent-pending flagship product Psoria-Light® is the first deep UV LED targeted phototherapy device to effectively treat psoriasis, eczema, alopecia areata, vitiligo and other ultraviolet-treatable skin diseases affecting an estimated 11 percent of the world’s population.
Psoria-Shield’s unique emitter adapts deep UVLED technology jointly developed and utilized for photoelectron generation projects by Stanford University, NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the European Space Agency (ESA).
The original technology was developed in part for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Ground Observatory (LIGO) (Laser Interferometer Ground Observatory) and LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) projects for photoelectron generation as part of the charge management system for gravitational wave measurement systems. Psoria-Light® technology incorporates a multitude of deep UVLEDs sufficient to offer high-dosage, therapeutic, targeted UVA and NB-UVB phototherapy.
