About Niraxx Light Therapeutics 

Niraxx was founded in November 2016 by co-founders Joshua Chen, a light therapy enthusiast and serial entrepreneur, and Dr. Paolo Cassano, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Director of Photobiomodulation at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Division of Neuropsychiatry. We wanted to create a new category of wearable for brain health and related disorders that will empower individuals to take charge of their brain health for life.

We believe there is a great need for more effective, accessible, personalized mental health care. Not only has health care for brain health previously lagged behind due to a focus on brain diseaes, the topic is even more paramount in light of the uncertainties brought about by the pandemic.

We launched Niraxx Brain Pacer™ and Niraxx Life™, our device and app solution, to deliver non-invasive light therapy (tPBM) in a way that is comfortable, stylish, convenient and data-driven. The safety and efficacy of tPBM has been demonstrated in both healthy adult and patient subjects, and has been widely written about in over 600 peer-reviewed articles found in the National Institute of Health database.

We are a leader in pioneering the integration of clothing into brain health wearable. The combination of textile and electronics is important to us because we believe to effectively care and manage mental health, our solution needs to blend seamlessly into daily life and be easily accessible.

We’ve only just started on this exciting journey. We continue to work with top researchers and scientists to further develop AI, machine learning and enhance personalized care.
