The Vielight Neuro Alpha is a powerful brain photobiomodulation (PBM) device. It is one of two next-generation near infrared (NIR) wearable devices, suitable for use at home.
The patented combination of transcranial and intranasal stimulation makes the Neuro Alpha ideal for comprehensive brain photobiomodulation, by simultaneously stimulating the ventral and cortical brain areas.
Powerful yet simple, the Vielight Neuro Alpha features microchip-boosted transcranial LED diodes, which generate sufficient power to penetrate the skull (Link).
Furthermore, the Neuro Alpha’s refined form factor allows it to fit a wider variety of head shapes and sizes.
At present, our engineering team is able to extract one of the highest amounts of power in the world from a near infrared LED source.
Difference between the Alpha and Gamma
- The 10 Hz pulse rate of the Vielight Neuro Alpha remains consistent with the pulse rate of the Vielight 810 and of the older Vielight Neuro devices. This pulse rate correlates with EEG alpha brain wave entrainment and cellular light absorption. Also, this pulse rate differs from the 40 Hz pulse rate of the Vielight Neuro Gamma, which has a stronger effect on memory enhancement.
- The scientific reasoning behind the difference between the 655 nm and 810 nm wavelengths can be found in this independent study : (Link)
- Near-infrared light is nearly invisible to the naked eye, making the beam appear much dimmer than it actually is. The power density of the transcranial LED is 100 mW/cm2per diode. The power density of the intranasal LED is 25 mW/cm2.
