Background: Laser medicine in general has experienced enormous progress over the last years. The latest innovation is a so-called laser watch, a system only slightly larger than a wrist watch. Methods: The laser watch is applied to the wrist, where simultaneous and continuous acupuncture point or blood irradiation using laser light can be performed. Results: This results in new and promising therapeutic approaches for different diseases. This article introduces and briefly discusses the first…

TLDR
A new laser watch prototype (generation 2021), which can be used to perform continuous and simultaneous blood irradiation at the radial and/or ulnar artery of the wrist with different wavelengths of laser light, is described.
Laser blood illumination: the main therapeutic techniques (systemized literature review)
The analysis of the publications devoted to the research of the mechanisms of the therapeutic effect of one of the most known low level laser therapy techniques –laser blood illumination, as well as
[The commonest therapeutic methods for laser irradiation of blood].
TLDR
The present article was designed to review the main currently available techniques for laser irradiation of blood which are presented in the form of tables (charts).
Russian low level laser therapy techniques for brain disorders
Comments on New Integrative Photomedicine Equipment for Photobiomodulation and COVID-19
TLDR
Although there are still many unanswered questions, it seems to be emerging that PBM and PDT in connection with the corresponding photosensitizers may make it appear worthwhile to perform experimental and clinical studies, primarily as so-called home therapy studies.
Biostimulation Effects and Temperature Variation in Stimulated Dielectric Substance (Diabetic Blood Comparable to Non-Diabetic Blood) Based on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in Laser Therapy
TLDR
Investigation of the appropriate SAR threshold value as affected by temperature variation using fundamental blood dielectric parameters to optimize the effect of low-level laser therapy based on physiological and morphological changes of the stimulated diabetic blood showed laser at low energy is capable of moderating morphologically the proportion of abnormal diabetic red blood cells.
Impact of Combined Photo-Biomodulation and Aerobic Exercise on Cognitive Function and Quality-of-Life in Elderly Alzheimer Patients with Anemia: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Combined low-level laser therapy and moderate-intensity aerobic exercises are more effective in improving the cognitive function and quality-of-life of Alzheimer’s disease patients.
Response of glycaemic control to extravascular low level laser therapy in type 2 diabetic patients: a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
The study showed a considerable positive effect of extravascular low level laser therapy on the glycaemic levels in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients.
Effect of laser biostimulation and a low-calorie diet vs. a low-calorie diet alone on insulin resistance, inflammatory biomarkers, and depression among obese postmenopausal women: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
In postmenopausal obese women, adding LB to a suitable dietary program provides the most significant benefit in terms of lowering IR, metabolic inflammation, and depression.
[Clinical effect, changes in the lipid structure of the erythrocyte membrane and microcirculation in patients with arterial hypertension in combination with coronary heart disease under the influence of laser therapy].
TLDR
In patients with hypertension in combination with coronary artery disease, LT causes positive changes in the lipid structure of the cell membrane and microcirculation parameters, which is accompanied by a hypotensive effect and an improvement in the clinical and functional state of patients.

Effects of popliteal illumination on cerebral near-infrared spectroscopy
TLDR
There were significant (p < 0.001) delayed (2 min) alterations in NIRS parameters during popliteal light illumination, which could be further evidence for extraocular phototransduction in humans.

TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to summarize existing approaches focusing on original traditional medicine, modern traditional Medicine, and Western medicine, and to propose a more synthesized perspective that embraces various approaches under the concept of integrated medicine.
Inclusion of Integrative Medicine in Clinical Practice
TLDR
Integrative medicine represents a more comprehensive system for understanding the authors' body in a holistic fashion in terms of analyzing, evaluating and treating complex diseases successfully.
Extraocular circadian phototransduction in humans.
TLDR
These findings challenge the belief that mammals are incapable of extraretinal circadian phototransduction and have implications for the development of more effective treatments for sleep and circadian rhythm disorders.
