The HealthLight Medical Team
Dr. Thomas Burke, Medical and Science Director
Dr. Tom Burke received his PhD degree from the University of Houston and then, following a 4 year, postdoctoral research fellowship at Duke University Medical School, joined the faculty at the University of Colorado Medical School, Department of Physiology. Later he also became a member of the Department of Medicine. In the late 1990’s, he founded Integrated Systems Physiology (ISP), a company that performed contract research for small and large companies in the biologic sciences.
His research into the effects of nitric oxide began in the early 1990’s and therefore he was well positioned to understand the potential health benefits of devices or supplements that would increase nitric oxide naturally. He has been a visiting professor at major US Medical Schools and lectured nationally and internationally on the effects of maneuvers that raise nitric oxide. Dr. Burke has also served as Director of Research and Clinical Affairs for a light therapy (light emitting diodes – LED) company and currently serves as Medical and Science Director for HealthLight, a US company, producing LED-based near infrared devices (http://www.healthlightus.com). The LED devices have FDA clearance (K101894) for increasing circulation and reducing pain and have been used extensively to improve sensation, reduce pain, and lessen the risk of falls, all of which are symptoms experienced by patients with neuropathy. In addition, the use of these LEDs on the head may improve the symptoms suffered by those with concussions suffered in combat or on the athletic field.
