Light Force Therapy Receives ISO Certification Of Its Quality Management System


10/19/2005 5:10:29 PM

ELIZABETH, Colo., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Light Force Therapy, the leader in light therapy technologies, has received ISO 13488:96 certification of its Quality Management System. The announcement is made by Kim Peterson, co- founder, who says the certification is yet another "feather in the cap" for Light Force Therapy, whose products are already cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada.

"Receiving ISO certification is evidence to both our customers and business associates that Light Force Therapy takes quality very seriously-in all aspects of marketing, production and distribution," Peterson explains.

Light Force Therapy received FDA clearance in 2000 and Health Canada clearance in 2001. The adoption of International Standards means that Light Force Therapy adheres to the world's most stringent quality standards, which often form the basis of regulatory law all over the world. Light Force Therapy is now truly poised to market its devices globally.

"By receiving ISO certification, along with FDA and Health Canada approvals, we're creating a company dedicated not only to customer satisfaction, but to the highest standards of quality as well," Peterson says.

The ISO certification process at Light Force Therapy was audited by Arvada, Colorado-based Orion Registrar, Inc. -- http://orion-iso.com/ . For more information about ISO internationally, go to http://www.iso.org/ . The ISO network member in the U.S. is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), http://www.ansi.org/ .

Founded in 1998, Light Force Therapy was built on the premise of making a difference in people's lives. Using the tools of passion, education and innovation, the company's cornerstone technology uses photo-stimulation to enhance quality of life for people suffering with pain. Photo-stimulation, a process that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to produce beams of light at specific wavelengths and frequencies, helps to safely relieve acute or chronic pain associated with disease or injury.

Light therapy was initially a successful treatment for injured and abandoned horses, but in October 2000 Light Force Therapy's LED technology was cleared by the FDA to be effective in treating humans as well. "We didn't go after the human market; it came to us," Peterson says.
