I am looking for help for my wife who is in early Alzheimer's....the infrared helmet shows promise (I am a biologist by training)...is there a general construction design for this device/

Kind regards,

Default 1072nm helmet

I want to make a helmet for my mother who has Alzheimer's. I read in the patent that Dr. Dougal wrote for his device that laser diodes with a frequency of 1064nm could be substituted. Perhaps more affordable? I haven't looked for a source yet.
Has anyone found any of the infrared LEDs at an affordable price?

See the part number 751-1203-ND at the
**

People seem to have a hangup with the 1072 nm frequency, rather what you need is infrared, and not an exact frequency. The part above is priced at 100 LEDs @$30, or 500 LEDs @$100. You can even buy 1 LED at $0.55. I've already may some devices.

What devices have you made? Do you have any designs schematics?

Guys the therapy is not a miracle cure for all types of Dementia. In the case of neuro degeneration caused by toxic metals, if the advancement is aggressive you will most likely be able to halt it, even reverse slightly and maintain the improvement, but to completely reverse will depend on how aggressive the degeneration is vs the cells regeneration ability. I think you will find it is very powerful against parkinsons, when applied to the back of the skull/neck joint. It can most likely help most brain conditions, but it will be some time before that is all tested and known.

Strange when you mention infra red to the not so well informed, they think its like a heater that fries the brain and is red in colour. Nothing like people who jump to conclusions, a little information is a dangerous thing for some lol.

I have converted mine to an adjustable head size version of my own design, I have donated the design to Quiet Mind Foundation to wish them well, so fits most people.

Here we are in 2012, with a 50 year old technology, which very safe and drug free, has a great potential with further developments, and since 2005 we have only come a little forward due to lack of investment funding. Don't hold your breath, may be a very long time before this is ever on the market, lucky enough medical grade LED technology will be much cheaper by then hopefully. Some may find it interesting to know that this freq occurs in natural sunlight, just not enough of it

Mine is in a box in the roof space, gathering dust now.

In February, 2008, I decided to build a helmet for my sister but had difficulty finding 1072 nm LEDs so I used 940 nm LEDs instead. She used this helmet from April through September of 2008.

In May I found a source for 1070 nm LEDs and was told that the primary wave length shifted to about 1072 nm after it was turned on and heated up to 30-35 degrees celsius. I purchased 50 of these LEDs and built a revised helmet that my sister has been using for nearly 7 months. There are two primary problems with this LED. It is very expensive and sells for about $400 each from Marubeni. I was able to get some knocked off the price but I'm not sure of the present supply and price. The other problem is the heat the LED puts out. It is technically 60 diodes put together in a single package and it dissipates a lot of heat. When I powered up the first test of a single LED I only had power to it for 3 seconds and it got so hot I couldn't touch it.

My major design goals were: 1. Control the heat 2. Protect the expensive LEDs and most importantly 3. Make sure I produced a helmet that was absolutely safe for my sister's daily use.

I think I accomplished these goals and the helmet has been working well since Early October. I have several improvements in mind for the next helmet which will hopefully be completed within the next 3-4 months.

I would consider building another helmet for someone under the right circumstances and would be willing to talk to you about it. If you are interested please post a follow up to this message.

Hi my name is Joyce Mordoh. I just joined Neurotalk and saw you made a helmet for your sister. It is now 2012. How is your sister doing?
Am very interested in her progress. Would be nice if something like this would work.
Hope to hear from you even though it's been a long time since you posted this..

Default Helmet?

How are any of you people doing with your handmade helmets?
It's been a few years. How are the treatments going?
