PhotoMed Technologies team of nerdy soft- and hardware engineers developed real-time recording systems to develop the Vari-Chrome® Pro.


Along the way, the recording systems captured unexpected physiological responses and outcomes. Today, those responses and outcomes do not appear to be special except for the years of delay.


This website let's the team communicate with prospective researchers, including access data that might save them $$ and years.

What might you find?

The Instant Verification System records data that may help you to connect-the-dots among treatment parameters, each treatment, responses, and outcomes. Ask the team to integrate the data stream from your sensors. The System provides a platform for real-time recording of phenomena that you are studying.

Optionally, the Instant Verification System may record the output from a Vari-Chrome Pro and/or thermal imaging system. The System has been used in PhotoMed's 7 IRB development studies.

The System typically runs locally as the computer system may limit data recording rates. Multiple 16-bit cameras may output data at 1-2GB/minute. The proprietary lossless compression/retrieval system supports examination on an 8-10 bit screen with all data sources timestamp aligned.


Could restoring normal functioning be what non-invasive therapies prompt but invasive interventions don't?

The return to normal healing or normal functioning

How might you objectively measure "normal functioning"?

Could restoring normal functioning relieve pain AND the patient no longer needs additional therapy?

Could a new model help by shifting the conversation from "chronic" to not-healing that might simplify discussions of the observed responses and outcomes?

Could it be the delay that makes the physiological responses so surprising?


Could the low expectations for healing after years of chronic pain and impairment be a result of insufficient experimentation?

PAIN_R2N Q 2021-04-20.jpg

What BIG question would you like to answer?

The traditional study methods pain won't find the quick events prompted by non-invasive therapies.

What if "success" means that the pain returns to its baseline level when the active agent is removed?

Would you like to record the quick events in physiological systems that might mark the return to "normal functioning"?
