This article reports the clinical observations made on 19 patients affected by chronic wounds of diverse aetiologies, not responding to standard treatment who were treated with a Blue LED Light medical device (EmoLED). There exists important scientific literature supporting the evidence that light stimulates tissue regeneration and skin repair owing to the ability to interact with tissue through the photobiomodulation (PBM) process (Anders et al, 2015). Over the past few years, LED sources have proven to be effective solutions for the development of new medical devices based on PBM, allowing a more accurate selection of wavelengths, including the range of visible blue light that has generated growing interest for its potential in terms of wound healing (Lubart et al, 2007; Ishikawa et al, 2011; Landau et al, 2011).
