Sharon Katzke, founder of Visum Light, is an engineer by trade, which makes her a born skeptic. When her beloved horse, Sport, was suffering, she purchased a photonic light therapy device to relieve pain and hasten healing. She’d discovered the science but was doubtful that photobiomodulation (scientific formal name for light therapy) could help her horse.
Sharon had two questions: Would it work? And had she wasted her money? Sport answered those questions for her. The first time she used the photonic therapy on her beloved horse, Sport dropped his head, sighed deep, and turned to look her right in the eye – all obvious signs of pain relief.
And the science is in that says photobiomodulation therapy works! Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), previously known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), or light therapy, is the application of red and near-infrared light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation, and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.
Still, Sharon is an engineer with a designer’s mind. The device she purchased was awkward to hold, rolled off flat surfaces, had a stubborn toggle switch, and offered only one choice out of the broad spectrum of available light therapy. Sharon knew she could design a photonic device that offered more; an affordable, durable, hand-held device that offers you not just PBM therapy, but a range of colors in the light therapy spectrum. And she believed she could do this for an affordable price for someone who wanted to benefit from light therapy.
The Visum Light is the result of Sharon’s innovative design. The Visum Light is a comprehensive photonic therapy device that is so portable you can take it with you wherever you go. Pack it in your purse, glove compartment, saddle bag, backpack, dog pack, or take it to work with you. Wherever you need pain relief, an antiseptic, ice therapy, or re-balancing; the Visum Light travels with you.
Twenty years later, Sharon’s medical-grade Visum Light is considered the industry standard by chiropractors, veterinarians, farriers, physical therapists, and everyday people – just like you! The Visum Light helps people and animals all around the world.
Our mission at Visum Light is to put healing into your hands at an affordable price. We do this because we believe that everyone deserves a pain free and active life.
