About Us

Vielight Inc is poised at the forefront of brain photobiomodulation technology. We combine science with engineering ingenuity to develop devices that incorporate novel methods of delivering photons to the brain and inner systems. Our mission is to engineer photobiomodulation devices that are safe and effective, easy to use and affordable – all to truly help improve one’s quality of life.

The Vielight story started in 1995, when Lew Lim and his colleagues at Silicon Valley invented intranasal photobiomodulation as a non-invasive method of introducing therapeutic photonic energy into the human body. The research and development continued throughout the next decade before Vielight Inc was founded to commercialize the invention.

Officially incorporated in Canada in 2011, Vielight Inc has since evolved into a formidable team of engineers, scientists and business professionals dedicated towards taking the technology to as many people as possible. Vielight’s footprint currently covers North America, Europe, Australia and many other markets.

Throughout the years, several research institutions have adopted the use of Vielight technology in clinical trials, namely, Boston University School of Medicine and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

At the end of 2015, results from the initial pilot study conducted in collaboration with Harvard Medical School and Boston University School of Medicine were deemed good enough to warrant further investment and grants for bigger upcoming clinical trials approved by the FDA and Health Canada.

Today, we strive to look for new opportunities and expand our range of solutions by working in collaboration with some world-renowned research institutions in the field of photobiomodulation. Our goal is to combine that pioneering spirit with a passionate commitment towards improving people’s lives.
