A study was carried out in newborn babies admitted to the Lift Support and Intensive Care Unit with various illnesses (listed above). The babies were given BIOPTRON Light Therapy for 10 minutes and for 3 to 4 sessions per day. The babies responded well to the treatment and there were no negative side effects. The best results were achieved for the treatment of vein inflammation. Pain was reduced within 24 hours, skin problems improved within 2 to 3 days.
