CelLED iLED Pad Review

In this CelLED iLED Pad review, you will learn if you should use this device for dementia, brain injury, wrinkle, acne or pain relief therapy.

Hint – it’s all but the acne, and even that will improve with this device.

Products Mentioned in this Review

I have two vendors offering the CelLED iLED pad. Lifespan Dynamics sells out of Australia,  and LightpathLED sells from the United States.

iLED Pad Pulsation Frequencies

CelLED iLED

The iLED pad has five pulsation settings, including 10 Hz and 40 Hz, the two most studied in brain research.

  • The 10 Hz pulsation corresponds with the alpha brainwaves and is the recommended setting for brain injury therapy.
  • The 40 Hz pulsation corresponds to the gamma brainwaves, and is very well supported for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and dementia therapy in general.

The remaining three pulsations are in the “Nogier” range, for which the scientific evidence is less available, but clinical anecdotes are compelling.

  • The 292 Hz pulsation potentiates skin and nerve therapy.
  • The 584 Hz pulse empowers the blood, lymphatic and organ red light therapy.
  • The 1168 Hz pulsation helps the bone, joint and muscle effects of red light therapy.

Where to Put the iLED

Use the iLED as a flat or a bent device.

When you tug to bend the pad around your head or leg, it stays where you put it.

Use the iLED on any body part, including the foot, calf, quad, hamstring, pelvic area, tummy, chest, back, neck, face or head.

The wavelengths, pulsation, and the ability to stay in place once bent mean that the iLED works as a pad, a helmet and a facial wrap.

Use it for sore muscles, exercise recovery, Alzheimer’s, brain injury, wrinkles and skin rejuvenation.

It does everything except it is missing the blue light for acne (the red and infrared still help, though).

iLED Wavelengths

The iLED outputs 660 nm red and 850 nm infrared light.

These are in the range used in successful studies to

  • reduce pain and inflammation
  • trigger better blood flow
  • energize the mitochondria that power every biological repair
  • the 660 nm is good for hair growth in those people who can use red light to grow hair
  • the red and infrared are the perfect combination for increased collagen and elastin, making the iLED a facial beauty device as well

iLED Pulsation and Wavelengths for Brain Therapy

The CelLED irradiance is 60 mW/cm^2. It takes less than 2 minutes to get a 5J dose.

This device is important for its ability to transform into a brain helmet.

The 10 Hz pulsation is perfect for brain injury therapy. The 40 Hz is shown in several studies to improve dementia symptoms.

Results in brain injury and Alzheimer’s studies have shown these specifications found in this helmet to be useful for better memory, less depression and anxiety, and more desire to be social.

If you want a red light therapy device for brain, skin and arthritis, this is the pad to get.

Who Should Use the CelLED iLED (Primary Goals)

Red light therapy pad wrapped around man's neck and chin up to his noseThe CelLED iLED is has the shape, wavelengths and pulsation specifications to cover every single therapeutic base.

If you want a red light therapy device for brain, skin and arthritis, this is the pad to get.

Medical clinics use this exact pad for work on thousands of patients. This is a no-limitations gift for pain relief, dementia therapy, concussion rehab and beauty.

There is one exception to my praise for this device’s specifications. Acne therapy is best when blue accompanies the red and infrared light. This is a good acne light, but without the blue, it’s not perfect.

Use the iLED if you’re looking for these primary goals:

CelLED iLED is Ideal for:Because:
quicker exercise recoveryit reduces inflammation
pain reliefthe red and infrared wavelengths reduce inflammation and has an aspirin-like effect on pain
arthritis reliefMultiple studies on osteoarthritis of the knee show that red and infrared light reduce knee pain, as well as other types of osteoarthritis discomfort.
reduced chronic inflammationRed and infrared light reduce the chronic inflammation feedback loop that forgets to turn itself off.
tendinitis reliefWrap the iLED around your arm to reduce carpal tunnel and tendinitis pain. There is evidence that these wavelengths repair damaged tissue.
celluliteUse the wrap around the butt and thighs for cellulite treatment.
wrinkle reductionWrap the pad around the face for wrinkle repair from collagen and elastin production.
hair growthThe red light in the iLED triggers hair growth in some types of alopecia (baldness).

Who Should Use the CelLED iLED (Secondary Goals)

A secondary goal is one for which the wavelength is correct but the device might not be ideal. If you can get the device around the face, for example, the iLED is perfect for collagen production.

iLED’s wavelengths also support these goals:However the idea device type for this therapy is:

Protection from Unwanted Artifacts and Brightness

The iLED pad has no EMFs. Do not put an electric transformer brick on your lap to avoid unwanted electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

You can wear goggles if you find this light to be too bright. If you squint, then wear goggles. The wavelengths are not an issue but the brightness can be.

Comparing the CelLED iLED to a Competitor

The highest quality competitor to the CelLED iLED wrap is the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse.

Comparing Wavelengths

The iLED outputs 660 nm red and 850 nm infrared. Both treat skin issues, with the infrared going deeper into the head and body. The Neurowrap Pulse outputs 810 nm, the most absorbable infrared wavelength used in brain therapy. It has good skin effects and reaches into the brain and muscle.

Comparing Pulsation Frequencies

The CelLED pulses at 10 hz, 40 Hz, 292 Hz, 584 Hz and 1168 Hz. The Neurowrap Pulse pulses at 10 Hz and 40 Hz. Use 10 Hz for brain injury therapy and 40 Hz for dementia therapy. The iLED other frequencies are reported to be useful for muscle skin and bone therapy.

Comparing Coverage Area

The iLED light array is 12.2 x 3.5 inches (42.7 sq. inches). The Neurowrap Pulse is 25 x 5 inches (125 sq. inches). The Nushape is quite a bit bigger than the CelLED.

Comparing Power and Portability

Gray pad with multiple red lightsThe iLED is powered with a wall outlet power cord. The Neurowrap Pulse comes with a power cord, and you can optionally get a rechargeable battery. This means the Nushape is portable for that extra battery fee.

Comparing Business Policies

Gray pad with bulbsYou can buy the iLED at Lifespan Dynamics in Australia or at LightpathLED in America. They have different policies. We’ll compare both stores’ policies to Nushape’s.

  • Lifespan Policies: 60 day returns, 20% restocking fee, 18 month warranty
  • LightpathLED Policies: 60 day returns, 0% restocking fee, 9 month warranty
  • Nushape Policies: 14 day returns, 0% restocking fee, 1 year warranty

Pros and Cons of the CelLED iLED

The CelLED iLED is a hefty device routinely used in clinical settings.

It will last a long time.

The patented curving technology is a nice change from Velcro wraps for me, only because my Velcro has dog hair on it the second it leaves the box.

The iLED wraps to the target without need for extra ties.

The versatility is amazing, with its ability to turn into a brain therapy device.

It’s an excellent gift for someone who needs red light therapy.

This is the device that does practically everything you want in red light therapy, from arthritis, to tendinitis, to dementia and brain injury relief.

It does not have the blue light you’d want for acne therapy, but it does hit all the checkmarks for doing brain, pain and skin work.

I would like to see a battery-powered version to add to the portability.

The iLED’s wavelengths energize the mitochondria that powers tissue repair, and opens the blood vessels for greater blood flow.

The wavelengths are not spot on the center of the maximum absorption one theoretically wants, but the device works, so maximum absorption becomes an academic rather than a practical complaint.

The pulsation and wavelengths combined with the device’s ability to wrap around the target make it a contender for the best red light therapy device you can buy.

CelLED Returns and Warranties

You have 60 days to return the CelLED to LightpathLED or to Lifespan Dynamics. Lifespan has a 20% restocking fee. The iLED has a 1-year warranty.

Conclusion

The CelLED brand is a branch of Lifespan Dynamics out of Australia.

Owner Michael Liner is a full time clinician who uses his own products in daily practice.

He’s well aware of the red light therapy science, and so was able to build the exact right specifications into the iLED pad.

Unless you want to use it for acne therapy, the iLED is useful for every type of red light therapy goal.
