(Previous model Handy Cure now replaced with the new Handy Rx).
Treatment using the Handy Rx accelerates the healing process of injured tissues, encourages cell renewal and improves blood circulation.
The Handy Rx will:
- Relieve acute and chronic muscle pain
- Improve blood microcirculation
- Reduce inflammation
Handy Rx is a (LLLT) low level laser therapy device that combines 4 different energies:
1. Low level pulse laser radiation
2. Infrared radiation
3. Visible red light
4. Static magnetic fields

· 13 VDC, max. 1.3A
· 25,000 hours of effective use
Once these energies are synergized, together they provide a therapeutic outcome. The Handy Rx is the only device that combines all these radiances, plus it is clinically proven to achieve an effective and quick pain relief in a short period of time.
The Handy Rx accelerates inflamed tissue recovery, as well as promotes cells renewal that result in an improvement in microcirculation.
The Handy Rx treats cell tissue that has become inflamed; the cell tissue inflammation is caused by a low or reduced microcirculation, resulting a Ischemic injury, in which restriction in blood supply to tissues. This causes a shortage of oxygen and glucose needed for cellular metabolism, or in other words, to keep tissue alive. HandyRx is extremely effective in above situations.
Once the Ischemic state has been shortened, the duration of the injury is shortened, and the pain is reduced quickly as well.
Once the compact device is turned ON it begins to speed up the recovery and relieves the pain. The Handy Rx also reduces or prevents the need for painkillers or other medication. The device can be operated continuously for up to 18 hours without recharging the battery. Operating the Handy Rx is simple, painless with no side effects.
The Handy Rx device is pre-set with 3 different programs to treat various pain conditions. Each program uses different pulse frequency that alters the laser's depth of penetration.
The Handy Rx is being used widely by therapists, doctors, medical experts, fitness trainers, private customers, and the list goes on. The Handy Rx can be used by each member of the family, including children and pets, for countless conditions.
You can start treatment right away, in the comfort of your home; there is no need to schedule an appointment, travel and pay extra expensive fees for each individual treatment.

How Does LLLT Work?
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been proven to treat a wide range of disorders which, at first glance, have nothing or very little in common. To list a few examples, LLLT can accelerate wound and burn healing, reduce pain in different limbs throughout the body, improve the condition of patients after a stroke, help in treatment of diabetic angiopathy, and reduce stiffness and inflammation.
The physiological effects of laser light at low intensity are not completely understood, but what is known from a biochemical model is often summarized in terms of three main effects:
LLLT and ATP
One of the most important effects of LLLT is that it accelerates Adenosine Triphosphate Production (ATP), by increasing metabolism at a cellular level, as well as enabling the Ischemic cells in the damaged tissue to heal and to attain their normal functions.
ATP is an organic compound composed of adenine, the sugar ribose, and three phosphate groups. It captures chemical energy obtained from the breakdown of food molecules, and releases it to fuel other cellular processes, serving as the major energy source within the cells to drive a number of important biological processes. ATP is present in every cell, and essentially all the physiological mechanisms that require energy for operation obtain it directly from stored ATP.
Cells require chemical energy for three types of tasks: to drive metabolic reactions that would not occur automatically; to transport the needed substances across membranes; and to do mechanical work, such as moving muscles. When energy is needed by the cell, it is converted from storage molecules into ATP. ATP then serves as a shuttle, delivering energy to places within the cell where energy-consuming activities are taking place.
Extracellular, ATP has been found to act as a neurotransmitter. ATP receptors are widespread throughout the body. On its own it is known to have effect in the arteries, intestines, lungs, and bladder. It is also often released in tandem with other neurotransmitters to add chemical stability.
Additional Beneficial Effects of LLLT
Aside from increasing ATP production, LLLT has been shown to have a number of other beneficial effects. At the tissue level, blood microcirculation increases both during and after the treatment with LLLT. New blood and lymphatic vessels are formed, and collagen synthesis is enhanced. Increased improvement of blood microcirculation facilitates the recovery of oxygen levels in damaged cells, as well as normalization of the delivery of pharmacological preparations employed to treat a given disease. Reduced microcirculation leads directly to inflammation of cell tissue, which changes the quantity of blood supply to the cells, resulting in Ischemic injury. Any influence that can shorten the duration of the Ischemic state will have a beneficial effect on the course of the disease and the accompanying pain.
LLLT has shown to have a positive effect at both the cellular and tissue levels for the treatment of disorders resulting from:
Inhibited blood supply, leading to the development of acute or chronic tissue hypoxia
Destruction of tissue at different levels
Decreased regenerative abilities of cells
Altered cell metabolism.
Therapeutic and Synergistic Benefits of Additional Modalities
One of the key features which differentiates the Handy Rx products from other LLLT devices is that they combine low level laser with additional modalities to achieve synergic therapeutic effects.
Low-intensity radiation in the red and infrared spectral ranges induces prolonged photochemical processes, which play an important role in the achieving the clinical therapeutic effects of quantum therapy. The most prominent of these effects is improved blood micro-circulation, which further enhances the therapeutic effect of the LLLT. The biological effect is due to the vasodilation of small blood vessels, a decrease in the adhesive ability of blood cells, and formation of new micro vessels.
In addition, low-intensity radiation via red light has a positive influence on the quantity and quality of endogenous photosensitizers in blood plasma, leading to increased cell bactericidal activity. This is thought to assist in healing wounds and trophic ulcers, when normal, not excessive level of bactericidal activity helps to keep wounds and ulcers clean, thus speeding up the healing process.
Static magnetic therapy has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the body, although the mechanism by which this is achieved is not yet fully understood. Possible explanations for the beneficial effect of static magnetic therapy include:
Decreasing the firing rate of chronic pain neurons.
Changing the rate of enzyme mediated reactions, which may play a role in inflammatory cascades and free radical generation.
Modulating intracellular signaling by affecting the functioning of calcium channels in cell membranes.
Causing changes in blood flow
The Handy Rx is the new, upgraded version of the Handy Cure. Similarly, the Handy Rx is able to help relieve a wide variety of pain-related conditions after continuous use.
