Early research and development activities,  inventions

1969-78  – Medicor Works, Institute for Research and Development

Initiated and led research on

  • automatization of blood grouping
  • ultrasound diagnostics
  • digital image processing with special regard to the
  • automatic blood grouping and evaluation of chromosomes
  • acoustic holography

Invented and researched the Optix image corrector  for the improvement of the X-ray image quality, parallelly  with  the reduction of
the X-ray dosis by 50%.

1978-81  Semmelweis Medical University , Budapest
Initiated and led research on the effects of laser light on nucleoproteid systems.

Research,  development and inventions  in connection with the biostmulating effect of polarized light

Discovered  the immune stimulating effect of  polarized light, the first manifestation of wich for human treatment   was  the EVOLITE (later BIOPTRON) lamp .
(Patent  filed   between 1981-1985, granted in 48 countries with the following title:
A  method and apparatus for the stimulation of biological processes related to cellular activity

 1988, 1994

Joliot Curie Institute for Radiobiology and Radiohygiene (Budapest)
Investigated the immune modulating effect of polarized light.  These investigations involved  the comparison of the immune stimulative effect gained by the polarized  light as well as diffuse light on  the following model systems:

  • interaction between T-lymphocytes  and tumorous cell lines  (in vitro)
  • treatment of the spleen of tumorous mice (in vivo)       

 Discovered  and  led research on  the biostimulating  effect of  linearly polarized light  in  the following fields:

*  human and veterinary medicine
*  agriculture
*  purification of sewage


Initiated,  financed  and led  extensive research on different medical applications  of polarized light   and participated in the development of  various models of the therapeutical light source, called Bioptron.

1987 –  Department of Medicine of the University of Cologne  (Germany)

 Initiated   and led   research  on tumorous mice in vivo.  The good results encouraged  her and the  coworkers to file a patent  granted in  the United States  with the  following  title :
Method for in vivo treatment of tumorous tissues on body surfaces.   The patent  was   granted.

1989 –  Slade Hospital, John Radcliffe  Hospital, ( Oxford (UK))

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.

1995  – Bar Ilan University  (Tel Aviv, Israel )

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.)

– Invention:
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.
