About Optune Lua™

Optune Lua™ delivers alternating electric fields without increasing chemotherapy-related side effects. Electric fields are tuned to specific frequencies that disrupt cells’ ability to multiply.

Optune Lua™ requires no regular maintenance. It should be used for as many hours as possible per day, and can be carried around with you in a bag for use in your daily life.

Optune Lua™ is a prescription medical device approved in the US.    Please contact your physician for more information.

How Does Optune Lua™ Work?




Optune Lua™ generates low-intensity, intermediate frequency, alternating electric fields. These electric fields are delivered to the site through transducer arrays that are placed on the upper body.

Optune Lua™ is comprised of two main components, an electric field generator, and transducer arrays.
