Led research on the immune modulative effect of linearly polarized light
1994 – University of Veterinary Medicine, (Budapest)
In vivo research: The blood of spontaneously tumorous dogs was treated with polarized light extracorporally, as a consequence of wich, the occuring immunological as well as the morphological changes were investigated.

In vivo research: treatment of cancerous animals with polarized light
In vitro research: on the modulating effect of polarized light on fibroblast cell cultures
– Invention: POLARIUM
(Patent granted in Hungary : Method and arrangement for relaxation, elimination of stress, inproving the mental and physical capacity of human beings.)
Elaborated, developped and patented the technology of the lightsource emitting polarized light having a surface of optional size as well as optional shape. This is the technology on the basis of which the Sensolite light bed was constructed.
(Patent granted in the U.S. and Europe: Lighting Unit for Producing Polarized Light Directed onto Target Surface)
The development of the prototype of the Sensolite lightbed, the first and unique equipment appropriate for the whole body polarized light treatment on the basis of the invention of 2004.
Initiated and organized an extensive research on the immune modulating effect of Sensolite in the case of recurrent childhood respiratory deseases.
Initiated and led an investigation in connection with the effects of the Sensolite lightbed on the sports performance of athletes (runners)
Established and led the Bioptron Health Center in Budapest ,
the activity of which was based on the exclusive and unique knowledges and experiences gained in the previous years on the applications of polarized light in human therapy.
Professional leader of the group developing the Sensolite light bed, used for treating the total human body with polarised light. There are several Sensolite healing centres in Hungary using this technology, working in a franchise system.
