Figure 5: Example of a healing process of a chronic venous stasis ulcer of the lower leg under therapy with wIRA

(13 irradiations of 30 minutes with water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA) and visible light (VIS) within 8 weeks, the first 7 irradiations within the first 3 weeks, additional 6 irradiations within the next 5 weeks):

Initial findings (day of first irradiation with wIRA(+VIS)), result after 3 days, after 5 weeks, after 6 weeks, after 8 weeks (day of last irradiation with wIRA(+VIS)) and after 14 weeks.

After 13 irradiations the ulcer and the stasis dermatitis in the treated area were healed.
