The Anodyne® Therapy System emits monochromatic infrared energy (MIRE™) to substantially increase local circulation and reduce pain. Anodyne therapy is a non-invasive treatment option used to help patients with pain, inflammation or poor circulation conditions.

Anodyne therapy is performed by placing flexible pads that contain light emitting diodes (LEDs) on the skin where the therapy is needed. Energy is released to the tissue to help stimulate circulation that results in pain relief. Patients attend 10 to 12 sessions depending on the severity of pain and lack of circulation. Each session is about 45 minutes.
