Dermaray UV: An evolution in ultra violet phototherapy
"Dermaray UV represents the finest quality and most technologically advanced hand held UVB Narrow Band 311nm phototherapy device available today; existing UV combs are now obsolete."dermaray.com
Hand held medical treatment for chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo, dermatitis, acne and alopecia areata (auto-immune hair loss.) The safest, most powerful and technically advanced hand held UV phototherapy available. Dermaray UV is unlike any other hand held UV phototherapy lamp available. No other UV treatment wand comes close to the power, performance and reliability of Dermaray.
"Ultraviolet B phototherapy administered at home is equally safe and equally effective, both clinically and for quality of life, as ultraviolet B phototherapy administered in an outpatient setting. Furthermore, ultraviolet B phototherapy at home resulted in a lower burden of treatment and led to greater patients' satisfaction" BMJ Medical Publications.
"UVB has been used to treat psoriasis for more than 75 years, initially in combination with crude coal tar and later as monotherapy. UVB has been the phototherapy of choice for psoriasis since it was found to be less carcinogenic than PUVA (psoralen plus ultraviolet A phototherapy) and since the development in the late 1980s of a highly efficacious UVB lamp, termed "narrow band UVB."

Dermaray UV is the easiest, smartest, safest, most convenient and effective system available. It can be used in Manual Mode exactly like an old style UVB wand and simply turned on or off but with the added benefits of battery operation, universal power supply and many unique safety features or in Advanced Mode under the watchful eye of our smart computer controlled system. Dermaray UV is so easy to use, in most cases, a manual is not even required. A printed user guide is available optionally and free of charge if required. Dermaray takes the guess work out of home phototherapy and offers a level of safety and automation unique to Dermaray.
Innovative configuration wizard prompts user for skin condition to treat, skin type and areas requiring treatment and then calculates suggested exposure times accordingly, no more calculators, pens and complex manual record keeping.
No prescription or doctor's letter required to purchase - delivered worldwide by express courier.
Dermaray UV is constructed from the highest quality and strongest UV stabilised composite plastic available.
Dermaray UV is the safest, easiest to use, most intelligent and more effective UVB phototherapy wand.
System intelligently manages frequency and duration of each treatment and exposure significantly improving patient safety and dramatically reducing the possibility of over exposure.
Electronically starts Philips medical fluorescent medical lamp (without the need of a starter, or the internal starter supplied by Philips) increasing lamp life span and allowing effective management of UV emission for more consistent energy output - resulting in more effective treatment and cheaper running costs as medical UV bulbs last longer.
Bulb operating life and power output is maintained by running the UV bulb at a higher frequency of 27Khz, other corded systems run at a lower frequency of 50~60Khz.
Each Dermaray-UV undergoes extremely rigorous post production testing, battery charge and discharge testing, operational, extreme climatic and environmental testing to ensure years of trouble free operation and the highest manufacturing quality.
Designed, constructed and tested in Australia under ISO international quality control standards.
We do NOT produce misleading comparison charts between Dermaray and other products, as there simply is no comparison.
Packaging includes Dermaray UV, a universal in-line approved power supply and two pairs of safety goggles, large and small design. To help save our rain forests, a printed user guide is not included as standard, instead please download the latest Dermaray UV user guide.
Optional medical practitioner kitincludes PC Connectivity Cable and software to program a "prescription" once the allocated program is completed the unit will deactivate until another prescription is entered by the medical practitioner.
Optional distributor kitincludes a PC Connectivity Cable, software and license to rebrand start-up display and logo etc.
Dermaray UV has Australian TGA Class 1 listed, CE mark, FCC mark and Australian C-TICK marks.
Due to the unique method Dermaray UV uses to manage the Philips medical bulbs, there is little loss of power and a generally higher output over much longer sustained usage. This means one bulb will outlast 3~4 bulbs in other UV lamps, while providing consistently better and more effective therapy by maintaining a higher power output for the duration of the bulb's usable life. The Dermaray UV's unique design maintains in excess of 82% power output after 1500+ hours. A typical mains powered UV device continually loses power with each use and has a 1/2 life of approximately 300 hours. Dermaray UV has significantly lower running costs, more powerful and consistent energy output that results in more effective therapy.
