University of Tennessee’s CCRP Program
Companion Animal Health is proud to sponsor the University of Tennessee’s Certificate Program in Canine Physical Rehabilitation.  The goal of the program is to promote the art and science of canine physical rehabilitation by:

  • Educating professionals in the principles and practical application of canine physical rehabilitation.
  • Promoting and supporting research that will advance the knowledge, skill and treatment of canine physical rehabilitation.
  • Making the benefits of canine physical rehabilitation known to the fields of veterinary medicine, physical therapy and other related professions.

Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
LiteCure has a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.  This CRADA supports basic photobiomodulation research.  Several studies have been published as a result of this agreement including In vitro and in vivo optimization of infrared laser treatment for injured peripheral nerves.

The Optical Society, Photobiomodulation Incubator
LiteCure proudly sponsored The Optical Society’s second Photobiomodulation incubator.  This Incubator was focused on the discussion and dissemination of scientifically sound research in the field of Photobiomodulation (PBM) also known as low-light-level therapy.  The Incubator meeting brough together a broad group of highly qualified individuals working in the area of laser and light-based medical research and therapeutic devices to discuss the future of PBM in health.  A key aim of the meeting was to articulate a common mission for PBM research and applications.  Topics addressed were techniques and applications of low-light-level therapy, including therapeutic devices and applications, used to stimulate cellular function leading to beneficial clinical effects.  Equally important was interaction with experts in medical technology adoption and translational medicine, along with discussions about the FDA assessment process, barriers to publication of PBM research, and other related topics.
