The Neuro, is the world’s first portable transcranial-intranasal combination light therapy system. The Neuro is based on the science of photobiomodulation, where light restores the biological system back to health. The whole brain is targeted, by directing pulsed near infrared light (NIR) to brain hubs using infrared light emitting diodes (LED)

What is Infrared Therapy?

 Principles of phototherapy were established at the end of the nineteenth century by N.R. Fineness, a Nobel Prize winner, for application of light treatment of psoriases, kemicterus, and as photodynamic therapy (POT) in the treatment of cancer. Phototherapy was advanced with introduction of laser treatment, initially in surgery. The development of the infrared (830 nm) gallium-aluminum-arsenide and the red (633nm) helium-neon low power laser, introduced phototherapy in would healing and analgesia. Many investigators have described successful pain treatment in a variety of diseases.Photo-stimulation was first discovered in the 1960s when European scientists began to use light beams of specific wavelengths and frequencies to treat damaged cell tissues. Today, that technology has been harnessed into portable,light-emitting-diode (LED), hand-held units. LEDs emit light of a narrow band of frequencies, and have different wavelengths or color characteristics.
   The use of monochromatic low intensity infrared laser and LED diodes has been promoted in several countries for many years as an effective treatment for arthritis, soft tissue injuries and pain. Infrared Diode Therapy has been used as a monochromatic device since around 1960. It was not until 1998 that Polychromatic Infrared Diode Therapy was developed and first used in the United States.
   It is becoming increasingly rare to find a physiotherapy department or clinic without access to this modality. There still seems to be some skepticism regarding this type of therapy, even though Polychromatic Devices are being used by Medical Doctors, Nurses, Veterinarians, Equine Therapists, Chiropractors, Anesthesiologists, Dentists, Massage Therapists, Physical Therapist, and many more. More and more publications within the medical and scientific community attest to the clinical usefulness of these devices and their many biological effects upon the cells.
     Medical Doctors, Veterinarians, Equine Therapists, Horse Owners, and etc. are beginning to realize the benefits of this non-invasive tool. Many are using the technology for the resolution of sports related and accidental injuries in horses and human, and as well as many other uses.
Studies show when light therapy breaks through blocked energy, the light enters and stimulates the cells as photons. The photons are absorbed by the photoreceptors within the cell. Photons strike the damaged tissue including skin, blood, muscle, and bone, and create a cellular response which reduces pain and jump-starts the healing process. The wavelengths are very effective at penetrating living tissue without any harmful side effects.

Therapy Definition

    Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible and infrared light have been shown to effect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. Visible light penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm. It is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (904nm) penetrates to a depth of about 30-40mm which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscle, etc.
   Depth of penetration is defined as the depth at which 60% of the light is absorbed by the tissue, while 40% of the light will continue to be absorbed in a manner that is less fully understood. Treating points with light can have a dramatic effect on remote and internal areas of the body through the stimulation of nerves, acupuncture and trigger points that perform function not unlike transmission cables.
   The technology is now becoming accepted and widely used in human medicine as well. Light therapy stimulates the natural healing power in the cells of the body. This tool uses the energy of light, called photon energy, to stimulate the activity of certain cell components. By using photo energy, you have a simple, effective, non-pharmacological medical alternative. Conservative management of acute and chronic injuries and postoperative wounds has come to include the use of photo energy because it is quickly effective, cost effective, and easy to administer.
Future LED Applications
   Much research is underway on the use of medical LED therapy to determine whether there are other applications for light therapy. "Research is currently being done on the different effects of different spectrums of light on living tissues," says Braden. It is thought that the visible red spectrum, which is roughly in the 600 to 700 nanometer range, is effective with surface issues such as wound care and that higher wavelengths, including infrared, are more penetrating. Studies also suggest that going down to the 400 or 500 nanometer spectrum, which is blue light, is effective for treating skin disorders including acne and scarring.

   "We've already seen how using LEDs can improve a bone-marrow transplant patient's quality of life," said Dr. Harry Whelan, professor of neurology, pediatrics and hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. "These trials will hopefully help us take the next steps to provide this as a standard of care for this ailment."
"Companies in this business are looking at the medical research that is being conducted regarding different frequencies of light to see where this technology might take us," says Braden. He foresees wound care as being the next big application. "You can expect over the next few years to see LED therapy as being the primary treatment for wounds such as post-surgical and non-healing wounds like diabetic ulcers."
Whelan and Ignatius say they would like to test their technology in other clinical situations such as spinal cord injuries and for treatment of Parkinson's disease, strokes, brain tumors, and tissue and organ regeneration.

"It may seem strange to some people because it is very much a change in the whole paradigm of medicine, which has been pretty much poisons and knives up until this point. The use of natural energy at an intensity that is brighter than the sun, but still nonetheless near infrared light at wavelengths that are helpful and not harmful, to enhance the cells' natural biochemistry truly has a lot of potential in the medical arena," says Whelan.

   Light is energy that moves in a wave pattern. Light is also characterized by its wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum. These therapeutic colors of photo energy lie between the infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths. This combination of infrared and visible light wavelengths is believed therapeutic. There are components in the tissue and blood that absorbs these wavelengths and activate normal cell activity that may have been disrupted by injury or sickness. The reason for this increased cell activity is the photon. The photon is the energy portion of the light wave. For this reason we often refer to this therapy as PHOTON THERAPY.
   Infrared therapy utilizes light energy in the invisible range of light. Infrared rays are just beyond the visible red range of light in the spectrum, thus we cannot see the Infrared light emitted from the treatment unit. Virtually all light has some penetration properties; however, it is often absorbed by the outermost skin layers. Traditional thermal (hot) laser light, on the other hand, can penetrate but often destroys tissue. Since damaged cells benefit from light, the objective was to develop a non-thermal and nondestructive deep tissue delivery vehicle.
   Once delivered, the light energy promotes the process of photobiostimulation. The positive effect of photobiostimulation on animal cells is analogous to photosynthesis in plant cells, whereby a chain of chemical reactions are set in motion. In human tissue the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems. The net result, observed in clinical trials to date, is the apparent reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.

Is it safe?

    There are no known side effects to Infrared Light Therapy treatment. Patients who are pregnant or who might be pregnant, and patients with active malignancy (cancer) should avoid this therapy.
