Can Light Therapy Help Treat Alzheimer’s Disease?

Introducing the Vielight Suite of Photobiomodulation Devices

Vielight (think “vie”, French for “life”) has developed an effective technique to bring light therapy to the brain.

Using an 810 nanometer wavelength and 40 hz frequency, the Vielight Neuro Gamma device  delivers gamma waves, associated with improving mental function, deeper into the brain.

What’s the Evidence?

Smaller studies using the Neuro Gamma have shown improvement in cognitive scores, blood flow in the brain, and connectivity between parts of the brain, all encouraging.

A larger, Phase III clinical trial is underway in Toronto and Michigan to see the effects of 24 weeks of treatment with the Neuro Gamma on patients with Alzheimer’s disease.  The subjects will be checked for improvements in activities of daily living (ADLs) and in the SIB, a measure that looks at reasoning, memory, social interaction, and other aspects of cognitive function.


I have just started recommending the Vielight products, mostly the Neuro Gamma, to my patients.  Vielight also makes products that help with relaxation using Alpha waves.  The 810 NIR is a device that Vielight recommends for improving mental acuity in people who have not entered a stage of cognitive decline.
