BART Webinar Series Photobiomodulation for TBI with Anita Saltmarche

This webinar recording explores photobiomodulation (laser and light therapy) with Anita Saltmarche. Anita was a Geriatric Clinical Nurse Specialist at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre in Toronto for many years and the principal investigator, researcher, and consultant to the Ontario Ministry of Health on a large, multi-site interventional clinical trial. Anita will speak about the effects of photobiomodulation and how it can effectively treat chronic TBI and other neurological conditions.

Viewers will develop a basic understanding of:

  1. How light therapy affects cells and tissue, and the potential benefits for those living with TBI and other neurological conditions.
  2. Considerations if you are thinking about purchasing or trying light therapy.
  3. Integrating light therapy devices into an integrative treatment approach for TBI and other neurological conditions.

About our presenter: Anita Saltmarche, BScN MHSc

In various roles, Anita has been involved in photobiomodulation (laser and light therapy) over the past 22 years as the VP of Clinical & Scientific Affairs for a photobiomodulation (PBM) device manufacturer, consultant, educator, researcher, and clinician.

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is Neuroprotective

In this webinar, Stephen Bornheim, actively investigating the effect of tDCS in stroke patients, will give an overview of his study on the long-term functional effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on acute stroke patients and present how a non-invasive therapeutic brain stimulation intervention could reduce the impact of stroke.

Near Infrared Light (NIR) Deprivation and Our Health

The Impact of Near Infrared Light Deprivation on Our Health This article demonstrates why the type of light is important for our wellbeing. Not only that, the time of the day when the light exposure is needed is even more important. Let’s review this important article.
