Infrared Reaches the Brain
Multiple clinical studies show that the 810 nm in this helmet travels through the skin, skull, cerebral spinal fluid, and dura matter to reach the brain itself. The specifications in this helmet — both the wavelength and pulsation ability — are proven to help relieve symptom severity of Alzheimer’s dementia, other dementias, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injury.
Increases Brain Energy and Oxygenation
The Photobiomodulation Helmet increases the production of brain batteries (adenosine triphosphate (ATP)) and opens blood vessels (cerebral perfusion). This brings energy and oxygen to the damaged part of the brain and promotes healthy neural communication. These actions directly affect improvement in memory and thinking.
- Increased ATP powers thought and repair
- Increased oxygen is crucial to the production of more ATP
- Increased ATP brings switches energy factories (mitochondria) from depositing amyloid and tau proteins to producing ATP instead
- Many studies show that the specification this helmet offers reduces amyloid plaque and tau tangles of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias
Therapy with this red light therapy helmet reduces Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. Regular use stops degeneration and literally starts neurogenesis, the formation of new brain cells.
Increased energy and oxygen in the brain power healthy immune responses that clear amyloid plaques and tau tangle deposits in the brain.
In clinical studies, the helmet’s specifications of 810 nm and the use of 40 Hz pulsation reduces and reverses Alzheimer’s and other dementia symptoms of memory impairment, aphasia (speech loss), executive dysfunction (ability to think), and mood disorders (especially depression and anxiety).
The helmet reduces symptom severity and blocks the formation of new Parkinson’s disease symptoms. In Parkinson’s, the helmet slows, stops, and then reverses the severity of stiffness, resting tremor, and posture balance disorder. It promotes dopaminergic neurogenesis to address dyskinesia symptoms.
In clinical studies, the helmet’s specifications of 810 nm and the use of 40 Hz pulsation reduces and reverses Parkinson’s symptoms. Subjects show a significant decrease in dementia severity, motor impairment, and cognitive dysfunction. Treatment significantly reduces neurodegeneration and damage to the axons.
The helmet reduces symptom severity and stops neurodegeneration in brain injury patients. Brain blood flow (cerebral perfusion) and reduced “brain fog” improve in step with one another. Anxiety and depression begin to lift after one treatment for some patients and for most patients after four weeks. Football players with chronic traumatic encephalopathy find their mood brightens, they are less like to get enraged, and thoughts of suicide reduce or disappear.
How it Works
The helmet reduces brain inflammation, restores energy conversion, and significantly improves oxygenated blood flow.
810 nm absorbs very well in the iron and copper embedded in Complex IV of the electron transport chain. The photon lends energy to all four complexes to resume electron passage and proton pumping to the intermembrane space. The protons power the ATP Synthase rotor that combines adenosine diphosphate with phosphate to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The brain has more energy to repair itself. Dysfunctional mitochondria stop producing plaque and free radicals and produce ATP instead.
In addition, nitric oxide leaves the mitochondria for the blood vessels where it smoothes the vessel walls and significantly improves blood flow. Since the electron transport chain needs oxygen to make ATP, the fresh blood supplies more oxygen, and the mitochondria make even more ATP.
Healthier mitochondria make fewer free radicals, so oxidation and inflammation go down. The light activates several anti-inflammatory pathways, bringing inflammation down even more.

Using Your Helmet
- On the control box, press start.
- Press the frequency until it shows the desired pulse rate. (More on this below).
- Press the time until it shows the desired time, between 5 minutes and 30 minutes.
- Set the intensity for channels 1 and 2. (More on this below).
CH I (channel 1) lights the back and the right side of the head. CH II (channel 2) lights the front and the left side of the head.
Set channels one and two to the desired intensity:
- Zero bars turns the light off
- Green bars run at 25% of full power
- Yellow bars run at 50%
- Orange bars run at 75%
- Red bars run at 100%
A red light therapy device is either a “continuous wave” or “pulsing.” The pulse refers to the number of times the light comes on per second. The light flashes at the frequency. “Hertz” (Hz) stands for the number of pulses per second. 10 Hz is 10 pulses per second. 40 Hz is 40 pulses per second.
Pulsation has two uses. Pulsed light probably travels farther into the brain. The science is still coming in on that. Second, the brain will follow along with the pulsation. If a brain is lacking certain brainwaves, the pulsation can bring them back online. A brainwave under the covers is the number of times a set of neurons fires per second. Therefore, if you entrain a brain to 40 Hz, you are gathering a number of neurons to all fire in synchrony at 40 times per second. That is what healthy brains do that Alzheimer’s brains lack.
The Alzheimer’s brain is usually deficient in the gamma brainwaves, and this follow-along response (“entrainment”) brings them back online. The most testing in the science is on 40 Hz pulsation with dementia patients. The 40 Hz brainwave corresponds to being awake, alert, and productive. The entrainment of the neuron firing at 40 Hz corresponds with better cognitive ability even when there is no light. Pulsation is a separate therapy that works with the light but does not rely on it. The next best-tested pulsation rate is 10 Hz. This corresponds with alpha brainwaves that fire when you are alert but relaxed.
We have anecdotal evidence for other pulse frequencies, but not a great deal of science. The user is invited to research pulsing benefits. Biohackers can have fun with 20,000 pulse options!
What About Hair Growth Helmets?
A hair growth helmet looks like this Brain Photobiomodulation Helmet, but they do not do the same work. Hair growth devices work at 660 nm wavelengths, which is a visible red color to the eye. The Brain Photobiomodulation Helmet delivers 810 nm infrared light, the most absorbable frequency of light in the mitochondria. Red light does not penetrate to the brain very well, while longer infrared wavelength reaches vulnerable areas for repair. Pulsation (which hair lights don’t have) pushes those photons even more. You might grow hair with the Brain Photobiomodulation Helmet, but you cannot relieve brain symptoms with a hair helmet.
Can the Brain Photobiomodulation Helmet Light Reach the Brain?
The Brain Photobiomodulation Helmet delivers light through the skin, skull, fluid, and matter to reach the brain. The biggest obstacle might surprise you, but maybe not. Hair is the biggest barrier between the light and the brain. If your user has thick hair, try wetting it down to allow the light to shine through.
How Often to Use the Helmet
Start slowly. If the patient has any sensitivities, the slow start will help ease past them. Sensitivities can cause brain fog, the opposite of what we want. Reactions are short-lived, but avoiding them is best. Most people never have a reaction except for relief from neurodegenerative disease and brain injury symptoms.
- Week 1: One treatment per day, at 25% intensity, for 12 minutes
- Week 2: One treatment per day, at 50% intensity, for 12 minutes
- Week 3: One treatment per day, at 75% intensity, for 12 minutes
- Week 4: One treatment per day, at 75% intensity, for 24 minutes
- Week 5: One treatment, then an optional second treatment per day, at 75% intensity, for 24 minutes for each treatment session
- Breaks as long as four weeks usually result in symptoms returning. Continued use keeps symptoms at bay.
What Time of Day to Use the Helmet
If using pulsation, use up to 20 Hz in the afternoon and evening; use pulsations above 20 Hz in the morning or early afternoon.
Are lights Not Visible, Is it Broken?
810 nm infrared is almost invisible to the human eye. To see the actual light brightness, video the light using an Android camera (for some reason Apple cameras don’t have an infrared sensor).
