A wearable helmet that can heal brain #Concussion #Traumatic #Head #Injury

A helmet with infrared light that can heal brain after mild head injury or concussion. This therapy is called Photobiomodulation.

Mild traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions, account for 75% of all cases in the U.S.

Acceleration and deceleration within the cranial vault leads to tearing and stretching of nerve fibers. Alteration of ionic balance and mitochondrial dysfunction makes it difficult for the cells to function while also limiting energy available for healing.

This wearable technology uses light therapy to speed brain recovery. This helmet emits near-infrared light. The light will penetrate the skull and reverse the impaired cellular metabolism that characterizes concussions.

This device can be used in an outpatient setting.
