Paper Abstract

The article aims to make a comparison, starting form a review of the available literature data, between the low level laser therapy and the light emitting diode therapy (LEDT) applied on human patients. The main conclusion is that too little research efforts have been devoted on the effects specific to LEDT. More than that, it is the authors opinion that every device claiming to heat has to prove the effectiveness in controlled studies.
