Austin 8 News reports that a new medical device could improve brain injury treatment. The device created by PhotoThera is called NeuroThera and is currently undergoing clinical trials. The device is operated by a train clinician, and is used to stimulate the inactive mitochondria in brain cells via high-intensity infrared laser. The theory is that the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) will be stimulated and when it starts working the rest of the cell will have energy and can resume functioning.
