Photobiomodulation Consultation

If you require assistance in selecting the appropriate device and usage guidelines, we’re here to provide our expertise at no cost.

Why Vielight technology?

Over a decade, as the original inventors of the field of home-use brain photobiomodulation technology, we’ve amassed the expertise and framework to offer guidance backed by published research based on our neurotechnology.

Please note that this not medical advice. While Vielight devices are currently involved in multiple pivotal clinical trials and Vielight is a certified ISO13485 medical device manufacturer, Vielight technology is still not FDA-approved for any indications (only Health Canada approved for Covid-19 recovery). The Vielight consultation does not substitute professional medical advice or consultations with healthcare professionals.

  • Neuro Gamma

Most of our research is accomplished with the Neuro Gamma.
The Neuro Gamma has been shown to increase cognitive ability, memory and cerebral blood flow in several independent studies.[1][2][3][4]
Gamma brain waves are associated with higher brain functions like cognition and memory.
The Neuro Gamma is sufficient for a majority of people.

  • Neuro Alpha

Alpha brain waves are linked to a calm mental state and improved sleep.
The Neuro Alpha has also been shown to positively affect microtubules in cellular studies.[5]
Microtubules play a role in the stability of neurons. As we age, maintaining the strength of microtubules in neurons may help maintain mental acuity.

  • Neuro Duo

The Neuro Duo grants access to both the Alpha and Gamma pulse rates.
This is useful for people interested in both mental energization and relaxation.

The Vielight Neuro is designed for simplicity and home-use.

Our devices are auto-timed for 20 minutes. We do not recommend exceeding more than 20 minutes daily.

Alpha: For maintaining general brain health, recovering from stress, for relaxation and improved sleep quality.

Gamma: In preparation for tasks that require cognitive focus and improved creativity, addressing a decline in brain performance, helps with higher forms of meditation. Some may experience some sleeping difficulty if used before bedtime.

Duo: For individuals with healthy brains, we’d suggest using the Duo for four sessions per week. The Alpha can be used for the first three sessions (once every other day), followed by one Gamma session on the seventh day. For example, a user may undergo an Alpha session on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, followed by a Gamma session on Saturday or Sunday.

If you have a healthy brain, use either version, once every 2 days.

If your brain isn’t healthy, use either version, once per day, 6 days a week.

    Vielight’s high-powered LED systems are proprietary and developed internally. Each transcranial LED has an industry-leading power of 1000 mW. These sophisticated LEDs have their own drivers and are not available to other companies. It allows us to program radiant power density of up 300 mW/cm2. Although we are currently limiting it to 100 mW/cm2 for safety reasons, we still lead the entire industry. Our declared values for radiant power density are verified through medical-grade testing and manufacturing certifications.

    Additionally, our lenses were engineered with curvature to maximize contact with the scalp and bypass hair. This maximizes power density, as the amount of light energy that reaches the scalp can be hindered by hair and distance, according to the inverse square law of light.

    Literature and our ongoing research with institutional research partners show that radiant power density is one of the most important variables for optimal penetration, besides wavelength.

    Our patented intranasal technology enables photobiomodulation of the olfactory bulb and ventral brain structures.

    The Neuro’s modules locations are adjustable, enabling different areas of the brain to be targeted.

    Flexible and adjustable form factor maximizes contact of diodes with the scalp – bypassing hair and optimizing NIR light energy penetration.

    In the field of brain photobiomodulation, our technology is featured in the most published research – spanning from neurodegeneration to brain performance. This is because we have been around the longest and have invested the most in advancing the field of brain photobiomodulation.

    The Vielight Neuro Gamma is the only brain photobiomodulation device to induce Gamma neuromodulation in a peer-reviewed published study in a high impact journal.[1] Gamma neuromodulation is being researched by MIT and has been shown to improve brain function in humans with dementia.[2]

    Besides that, improved brain connectivity and cerebral blood flow in an independent fMRI-based dementia study, which is the gold standard for determining physiological changes.[3]
