VieLight 810 Intranasal Near-Infrared Light
The Vielight 810 emits an infrared light with an 810nm wavelength is and therefore is a non-laser intranasal light photo-biomodulation device. Engineered for gentle brain stimulation, this device complements the systemic effects of the Vielight 655.
Photo-biomodulation is the activation and energization of mitochondria, the “power generator” of our cells, by absorbing low-level photons in the red/infrared spectrum. Energized mitochondria are triggered to convert energy into a form of biological energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The 810nm near-infrared wavelength enables photonic transmission past the intranasal channel to the deep ventral brain areas. The 810 is engineered to pulse at 10 Hz 50% duty cycle, this frequency is associated with brain oscillation in the alpha state. Neurons are well-suited for photo-biomodulation because they contain mitochondria.
The University of Texas conducted a study, which showed that near-infrared energy stimulation produces beneficial effects on frontal cortex functions such as sustained attention, working memory, and affective state. This effective state also helps to release the calming chemicals serotonin, which helps support a healthy night’s rest.
