smART Laser therapy lasers
ART has developed some really smart lasers for you. The lasers are used in laser therapy, but we have taken the old hand-held laser with buttons and displays, and made it....well, buttonless and display-less. The laser has only one input for charging the Lithium batteries. Everything else is controlled using Low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to not only set the laser parameters, but also to record them as well using an Android Tablet.
The lasers also do not have any external switches. All laser powers, switching, connection and operation modes are set by the Android APP. When in idle mode, the laser is advertising for connection to a Tablet and is available when the batteries are charged. The laser output is available once the system is enabled via Bluetooth, only upon touch sensing against the skin or fur of the animal. It is turned off once no longer in contact.
The lasers use high capacity Lithium batteries with appropriate protection circuits, to provide long battery operation under even full laser power conditions. All battery power and remaining treatment times are displayed via the APP so that treatment can be undertaken without unintentional battery failure.
For use in non-contact mode, which is essential for open wound treatments and for vet functions such as burning off ticks, the laser can be switched into a "manual" mode via the APP and turned on by first touching the animal.
The lasers have visual indication of the status of the laser, with translucent LED indications of advertising, Bluetooth connection, laser ready, and laser enabled indications. A hidden magnetic microswitch exists in the product for firmware reset if ever things go astray.

smART Laser Android system and APPs
The Android APP control system developed by ART is based on a Samsung 9.7" or 10.1" tablet. ART supplies the tablets with the Android software installed. The smart Laser Therapy system is not available for use on user-supplied hardware. iOS versions are not available and are not anticipated.
The Android APP manages all file information, connection and operation of the laser, and recording of all information into pet files. The system keeps track of battery power levels and provides associated low battery warnings where appropriate. It even estimates how much more operating time is remaining so your treatments are not interrupted.
There are facilities for taking notes, facilities for using the Android on-board camera and video for recording details, and on-board user documents and training videos.
