THE FUTURE OF BRAIN PHOTOBIOMODULATION

Say hello to two powerful, wearable devices at the forefront of brain photobiomodulation.

The Vielight Neuro Alpha and Vielight Neuro Gamma feature improved transcranial clusters over the previous Neuro design – leading to triple the power density.

The 40 Hz pulse rate is an experimental pulse rate that has shown great promise in the field of memory research.

Brain Photobiomodulation Devices

Vielight Neuro Alpha (α)
Vielight Neuro Alpha (α)10 Hz Pulse | 810 nm (near infrared) energy
The Vielight Neuro Alpha is a home-use brain photobiomodulation device that delivers 810-nm near infrared light energy, pulsed at 10-Hz.

The light emitting diodes (LEDs) are directed to hubs of the default mode network of the brain. A healthy default mode network is associated with a healthy brain.

The pulse rate of 10-Hz correlates with alpha (α) oscillations within the brain. Invoking the 10-Hz pulse frequency is associated with improved recovery and is a feature of a resting brain, based on published research.

Vielight Neuro Gamma (γ)
Vielight Neuro Gamma (γ)40 Hz Pulse | 810 nm (near infrared) energy
The Vielight Neuro Gamma is similar in design to the Neuro Alpha – the only difference resides in the pulse rate. The power density and wavelength is the same.

Published research shows the more intense 40-Hz pulse rate, which correlates with gamma (γ) oscillations within the brain, is associated with activating glial cells which clear unwanted protein deposits, higher cognitive processing capability and memory consolidation.

Please note that this device is not the same as the Neuro RX Gamma that is currently being used in our ongoing clinical trials. The RX Gamma is intended to be fully compliant with regulatory requirements for a medical device and will not be available without regulatory clearance. The “Neuro RX Gamma” is therefore a different product from the “Neuro Gamma”.

Vielight 810
Vielight 81010 Hz Pulse | 810 nm (near infrared) energy
The Vielight 810 is a standalone intranasal brain photobiomodulation device that delivers 810-nm near infrared light energy, pulsed at 10-Hz.

This device is designed for portability and ease-of-use. The parameters are similar to the Neuro Alpha but this device directs light energy only through the nasal cavity at a lower power density.

The effects are comparable to a vitamin for the brain.

The technologies being studied in these clinical trials are not yet approved by any national regulatory body for the treatment of medical conditions and are presently only for the enhancement of general wellness and mental acuity.

Design of the Vielight Neuro

Default Mode Network

  1. In neuroscience, the Default Mode Network (DMN) is a network of highly interactive brain regions.
  2. Research on DMN abnormalities and related neuropathologies are highly advanced.

Targeted Stimulation

  1. Targeting the DMN enables us to utilize fewer but very high-powered diodes in specific transcranial areas and an intranasal diode (5 areas in total) to deliver low level photons to the targeted network hubs.
  2. Our microchip LED technology allows extraction of a higher power density – improving potential to penetrate natural barriers and deliver photons to neurons.

The Intranasal Channel

  2. Photons diffuse easily through porous bone tissue when compared to natural barriers such as the skin and hair. (Reference Link )

FEATURED TECHNOLOGY

The science of brain photobiomodulation is catching on.

Our intranasal technology was featured on the “Brain’s Way of Healing” episode on the “The Nature of Things” series, featuring Dr. David Suzuki and Dr. Norman Doidge.

David Suzuki, Co-Founder of the David Suzuki Foundation, is an award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster. He is renowned for his radio and television programs that explain the complexities of the natural sciences in a compelling, easily understood way.

Dr. Doidge served as Head of the Psychotherapy Centre and the Assessment Clinic at the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry also taught in the department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. Along with his work on neuroplasticity, he is the author of chapters on research based standards and guidelines for the practice of intensive psychotherapy that have been used in Canada.

Additional Information

The Vielight Neuro (along with all Vielight devices) comes with a six-month satisfaction guarantee for 80% of your money back. Please note that we only honor this guarantee, if purchased directly from us.

The Vielight Neuro is a general wellness device that is designed to enhance mental acuity. The NIR energy should theoretically reach targeted locations at immediate locations on the line of sight of the NIR beams. The depth of penetration varies between different individuals.

The Vielight Neuro is classified as a low-risk general wellness product. It does not require FDA clearance according to the FDA’s draft on “General Wellness: Policy on Low Risk Devices” – dated January 20, 2015.
