VALKEE bright light headset

Valkee SAD Light Therapy Brain Stimulation Headset in White

It's not used for listening to music. It's used for bright light therapy.

It channels bright light to where it is needed most, the brain. That's why it prevents depression and can affect your mood.

In our clinical tests, approx. 9 patients out 10 experienced total relief of symptoms, which is a revolutionary result.

***Just 8-12 minutes a day is enough***

A New Way to Prevent and Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder

Reduced exposure to light affects all of us. Symptoms are ranging from mood swings to the more serious seasonal affective disorder. The VALKEE bright light headset increases light exposure easily and effectively by bringing light very close to the brain via the ear canals.

Researchers at the University of Oulu, Finland, have researched bright light headsets since 2008, and are convinced that this is a significant method for the prevention and treatment of seasonal affective disorders and other depression types.

Bright light in the brain, not in the eyes

Valkee and the brain

The brain has photosensitive areas that react differently to the lack of light, resulting in depression and mood conditions. These areas can be cured with bright light. Surprisingly our eyes are not the most effective route to deliver light to the brain: the ear canal, where the skull at its thinnest, is the most effective route to direct light to where it is needed.

Clinical evidence that VALKEE bright light headset works

The conventional bright light lamp is already considered a standard of care for several types of mood disorders and depressions. Its efficacy has been proven in hundreds of clinical trials.

The VALKEE bright light headset has been researched in a series of clinical tests by the University of Oulu. In a recent clinical trial, 25 severely depressed patients were treated with a daily dose of 8-12 minutes of light with the VALKEE bright light headset. Over a period of four weeks nine patient out of ten experienced total relief of symptoms, which is a revolutionary result.

Further studies

Currently VALKEE is being studied for seasonal affective disorder in open and placebo-controlled studies. In addition, the research is being conducted for other depression types
