Your brain is a powerful, working 24/7 engine . It uses more energy than any other organ in order to power your activities, including memory, thinking, learning, mood regulation and sleep. Here at Niraxx, we’ve created a new wearable experience to deliver natural, on-demand brain health care.

Power the transformation from the cellular level up.
How does it work?
Light is composed of packets of energy called photons. When photons are applied to the brain, they induce a photochemical reaction and transference of light energy. This results in the production of more energy. The process is called transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM).
Near-infrared light (NIR) energy is absorbed by mitochondria and converted into ATP. Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell; ATP is the main cellular energy for cells to function properly and the brain to stay vital and healthy. Dysfunctional mitochondrial activity can cause cells to undergo cell-death and neurodegeneration.
Another byproduct of normal mitochondrial metabolis is the generation of immune-related reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can regulate cellular and tissue-level inflammation and improve cellular repair and healing.
The process also improves cerebral blood flow and circulation. The brain can’t truly be healthy if it doesn’t have healthy blood flow and the lack of oxygen to the brain can cause fuzzy memory, forgetfulness, poor concentration, and even dementia.
Why Near Infrared Light?
Compared to other wavelenths of light, Near Infrared Light (NIR) can penetrate deeper and deliver light energy through the skull to the brain.
The physiological benefits of light has been the subject of a rich literature of over 5,900 scientific papers on PubMed. Feel free to explore our growing library scientific papers on the subject.
Here at Niraxx, we believe that the truly useful kind of wearable technology must have the adaptability to fit into any lifestyle. Our first solution combines years of tPBM research and proprietary clinical data with clothes we wear every day to deliver an on-demand digital wearable solution.
Our Soft Touch™ technology uses a special Phase-Change Material designed to optimize temperature equalization, moisture control and the release and absorption of light energy.

Co-Founder and tPBM Technology Pioneer, Dr. Paolo, Cassano, MD, PhD
“At Mass. General, Paolo Cassano… is working on one of several pilot studies nationwide of transcranial infrared light therapy [which is] believed to decrease inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain as well as increase the formation of neurons.”
“Cassano thinks light therapy could provide a groundbreaking new tool for depression treatment — one that is affordable, without side effects and more immediate than medication.”
“New research at Massachusetts General Hospital is showing that it may be able to treat severe depression with the use of specialized light and without medication.”
“Exposure to a light that isn’t visible to the naked eye may be the next breakthrough treatment for depression. Massachusetts General Hospital psychiatrist Paolo Cassano, MD, PhD, and other researchers at MGH and elsewhere, are seeing encouraging results in studies of near-infrared light—the light closest on the spectrum to visible light.”
You can change how your brain functions throughout the lifetime.

Peer-Reviewed Scientific Publications
Current treatments for depression have significant efficacy and side effect burden. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of years of research on a novel, safe approach called transcranial photobiomodulation (t-PBM) as a device-based treatment that is efficacious, well-tolerated and easy to use.
Evaluating Transcranial Photobiomodulation for the Treatment of Major Depressive Disorder
This paper reports the results from the Elated-2 Pilot Trial. The study is comprised of 21 adult MDD patients who underwent twice weekly t-BPM sessions for 8 weeks. The study finds subjects receiving t-PBM with NIR light showed greater improvement than the sham group.
Research show t-PBM has a significant, beneficial effect on cognitive performance in young, healthy adults. Nine studies were examined, of which seven studies were performed on young, health subjects ages 17-24 and two were conducted on older normal subjects ages 49 and up.
