Photobiomodulation

Photobiomodulation therapy is the utilization of light energy to trigger beneficial changes within cellular structures that are receptive to photons. Mitochondria, often referred to as “powerhouses” of the cell, are particularly receptive to this process. At the cellular level, visible red and near infrared light (NIR) light energy are absorbed by mitochondria, which perform the function of producing cellular energy called “ATP”.

In the world of photobiomodulation technology and research, Vielight leads the way with our proprietary transcranial-intranasal designs. Our devices offers an unparalleled advantage for comprehensive brain and systemic photobiomodulation.

Our devices are used worldwide, from major organizations to individuals from all walks of life. Find out why by asking us or reading our blogs.

Creativity and Brain Photobiomodulation | Independent Research with Vielight Technology

The Vielight Neuro Gamma was utilized in a study examining the link between creativity and brain photobiomodulation, specifically of the Default Mode Network. This groundbreaking study had 58 healthy participants and was sham-controlled, single-blinded and randomized. Researchers from the University of Deusto, Spain, the University of Montpellier, France and Pennsylvania State University, USA were [...]

40Hz Gamma Neuromodulation in Alzheimer’s Research | Brain Photobiomodulation and Visual Cortex Stimulation

The Ongoing Search for Effective and Accessible Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common type of dementia in elderly individuals worldwide (Wilson et al., 2012). The disease is characterized by neurodegeneration, tissue changes in the brain, (including amyloid-containing plaques and tangles of hyperphosphorylated tau protein), severe cognitive decline and in [...]

Parkinson’s Disease Clinical Trial Results | Vielight Brain Photobiomodulation Technology

This study was a historical first in showing the potential efficacy of photobiomodulation for Parkinson's symptoms in humans. The Vielight Neuro Gamma was utilized for transcranial-intranasal brain photobiomodulation and an Irradia MID 2.5 laser device for neck and abdominal photobiomodulation throughout this study. Read the full study here: Link Watch the explainer video below. [...]

Autism Photobiomodulation Clinical Trial Results | Vielight Brain Photobiomodulation Technology

At the moment, there are no pharmacological treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorder. There is a growing interest in non-pharmacological approaches, such as brain photobiomodulation. This animation explores the results of an Autism Spectrum Disorder clinical study using the Vielight Neuro Duo, conducted by Dr Stefano Pallanti, a Stanford University Professor and Director of Istituto [...]

Dementia and Brain Photobiomodulation

In 2015, our dementia pilot trial made history by being the first to show efficacy of brain photobiomodulation (PBM) for dementia in humans with a home-use device, the Vielight Neuro Gamma.[1] In 2019, Dr. Linda Chao, a professor in the Departments of Radiology, Biomedical Imaging and Psychiatry at the University of California, verified our [...]

Brain Photobiomodulation Pathways, Their Benefits and Opportunities 

Numerous studies conducted over the last two decades have shown the beneficial effects of photobiomodulation (PBM) on the body. Furthermore, a lot of research has been done over the last decade to better understand PBM’s effects on the brain. Today, there is a sufficient body of research-based evidence to conclude that PBM has beneficial [...]

Can Light Penetrate the Skull?

“Can light penetrate the skull and reach the brain?”, is a common question that skeptics and scientists share. The short answer is - yes, current research indicates that light energy can reach the brain, and this depends on several variables - such as wavelength and power density. This article will clarify the mechanisms that play [...]

Vielight Bi-Annual Update

Vielight Neuro Gamma Shines in a Brain Injury Study The sports medicine community recognizes that concussions from repetitive blows to the head are major public health concerns. To address this issue, Vielight is dedicating resources to seek for a solution using non-invasive transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM) modality. We try to be a part of the [...]
