A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11883095B2) discloses a hand-held laser treatment device designed to provide effective laser therapy. The device comprises a housing with a distal head region, a first laser source emitting a laser beam with specific characteristics, and a second laser source emitting a beam with different characteristics. An air pressure sensor is integrated to prevent the activation of the laser sources based on sensed air pressure, ensuring safe operation. The device also includes a laser transmission path with discrete segments and ancillary components arranged in prescribed spatial relationships and angular orientations to transmit the laser beams effectively.

Furthermore, the hand-held laser treatment device features a delivery tip, a focusing mirror, and a coupling fiber integrated into the laser transmission path. The components are strategically positioned to combine the beam characteristics within the transmission path, enabling the laser beams to reach the delivery tip coincidentally. Safety features such as a sensor to verify the optical path's integrity and a temperature sensor to monitor the laser sources' temperature during operation are also included in the device. Overall, the patent highlights a sophisticated hand-held laser treatment device with advanced features for precise and safe laser therapy applications.
