The Nushape Neurowrap Pulse is the next-generation model of the Nushape Neurowrap for Alzheimer’s and brain injury therapy.
The Neurowrap Pulse combines three non-invasive therapies into one device. This is a red light therapy, brainwave entrainment, and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) machine wrapped in a soft, almost luxurious neoprene cover.
In this Nushape Neurowrap Pulse review, you will learn how the Neurowrap Pulse is similar to and also different from the Vielight Neuro Duo.

How the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse and the Vielight Neuro Duo are Priced
No device has more brain injury and dementia science than the Vielight Neuro, which comes in three models: Alpha, Gamma, and Duo.Â The Vielight Neuro’s prices reflect that investment.
The Nushape Neurowrap Pulse also has 810 nm infrared, and both 10 Hz and 40 hz pulsing. It adds pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) technology, which also has plenty of science behind its use.
The Nushape Neurowrap Pulse has the same red light therapy technology as the Vielight Neuro Duo, and adds the PEMF.
The Vielight Neuro Duo has the most science and clinical support, and does not have the PEMF.
This is why you pay more for the Neuro Duo, and less for the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse.
You are paying less for the Nushape, but your ownly risk is the return shipping if you send it back within 14 days for a 100% refund.
Nushape’s Three Methods for Healing Dementia and Brain Injury
The Nushape Neurowrap Pulse takes the best qualities of the Vielight Neuro Duo and adds PEMF, another non-invasive therapy (that your doctor’s never heard of because it doesn’t make the pharmaceuticals a ton of subscription/prescription fees).
The Neurowrap Pulse has 810 nm infrared light, 10 and 40 Hz pulsation, and pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF). The Neurowrap Pulse delivers light through an LED array embedded in a neoprene wrap.
The Vielight Neuro Duo, for comparison, is an 810 nm infrared light with 10 and 40 Hz pulsations. The Duo delivers light through four LED modules and an intranasal applicator.
Several studies on dementia and brain injury used the Vielight Alpha or Gamma (the two subcomponents of the Duo) with great success. There are no studies on the Nushape.
The prices reflect these differences.
810 nm is the Best Brain Therapy Color
The 810 nm wavelength absorbs into the cells, making it a superior wavelength for brain therapy.
In brain injury, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s studies, the 810 nm wavelength consistently produces excellent results.
Red light therapy with this wavelength relieves depression, anxiety, and it improves memory.
In a study published in Behavioral and Brain Functions, researchers tested 810 nm infrared light on ten subjects experiencing major depression and cognitive decline.
After treatment, the subjects scored significantly higher on the Hamilton Depression Rating tests, showing that they depression had significantly lifted from pre-treatment levels.
In another study published in BMC Neurology, researchers tested 810 nm red light therapy on Parkinson’s disease subjects for 40 weeks.
Red light therapy treatment resulted in large reductions in Parkinson’s disease symptom severity.
The subjects’ showed significant improvement in their balance, gait, fine motor skills, steadiness, and cognitive test scores.

Who Should Use the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse (Primary Goals)
The Neurowrap Pulse is an excellent brain therapy device that is based on the latest science. People with dementia and brain injury should see results within the short return period of 14 days. If not, the Neurowrap Pulse is returnable with no restocking fee. I hope people with brain issues give this device a try.
The Neurowrap Pulse is for people with any type of dementia, including those that can accompany Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease. This also includes those with mild cognitive impairment, whose symptoms do not yet qualify as one of the dementias.
The Neurowrap Pulse is equally appropriate for people with brain injury, including those with concussion, traumatic brain injury, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
Use the Neurowrap Pulse if you’re looking for these primary goals:
|Nushape Neurowrap Pulse is Ideal for:||Because:|
|Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, mild cognitive impairment and other dementias||Up to 3% of the 810 nm wavelength reaches the brain’s gray matter. The brain responds by amping up energy production and opening blood vessels. The 40 Hz pulsation “entrains” the neurons to fire 40 times per second. This rate is often lacking in dementias. This produces a calm but focused state.|
|concussion, brain injury, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy||Up to 3% of the 810 nm wavelength reaches the brain’s gray matter. The brain responds with more energy and blood flow. The 10 Hz pulsation entrains the neurons to fire 10 times per second. People with brain injury respond well to this pulsation.|
Who Should Use the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse (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 Neurowrap Pulse is going to trigger collagen production.
|Neurowrap Pulse’s wavelengths also support these goals:||However the idea device type for this therapy is:|
|wrinkle reduction||810 nm is a good collagen wavelength|
|arthritis relief||810 nm reduces inflammation and pain|
|reduced chronic inflammation||This wavelength signals chronic inflammation to calm down|
|tendinitis relief||This wavelength has a tissue repairing response|
|cellulite||This wavelength might work to reduce cellulite|
Where to Put the Neurowrap Pulse
The Neurowrap Pulse fits on the head. If you want to unfold it and use it as a pad, it has the same 810 nm infrared light you’d use for pain relief and wrinkle repair. It will easily fit on the legs, arms, face, back and belly.
Neurowrap Pulse Wavelengths
The Neurowrap Pulse outputs 810 nm infrared light. This is the wavelength of the CognitoLite and the Vielight Neuro, two of the most studied brain symptoms relief devices.
Neurowrap Pulse Pulsation
The Neurowrap Pulse outputs 10 Hz and 40 Hz pulsation. The science is indicating that people with brain injury should use the 10 Hz, and people with dementia should use the 40 Hz.
Brain injury tends to make people sensitive to changing light. The 10 Hz is gentler. But people with dementia are often missing healthy brainwave activity in the 40 Hz range.
The device “entrains” the neurons to fire at 40 Hz, or 40 times per second, which is a healthy change in the brain’s wiring.

Protection from Unwanted Artifacts and Brightness
The Neurowrap Pulse does not output unwanted electromagnetic fields (EMFs). The lights are bright but once pressed to your head, are not visible through the wrap, so there is no need for goggles.
Red Light Therapy Wrap Comparisons
The Neurowrap Pulse has the same specs as the Vielight Neuro, with an addition of pulsed electronic magnetic fields (PEMF) therapy.
The Neurowrap Pulse is less than $1,000, and the Vielight is over $2,000.
The reason for the difference is that there is scientific evidence that the Vielight’s red and infrared light penetrate to the brain and have significant effects.
Vielight uses LED modules and an intranasal light delivery applicator which are proven in studies and case reports.
If you want a product with proof, get the Vielight Neuro, which I describe in detail here. For much less money you can try the Neurowrap Pulse, which you can buy on Nushape.com here.
You should see results before the 14-day return period expires. If you do, you’ll want to keep the device. But if you don’t, you can return the Neurowrap Pulse with no restocking fee.
Pros and Cons of the Nushape Neurowrap Pulse
Nushape makes high-quality products. The neoprene wrap around the lights feels smooth and sturdy. You can just feel that this device will last. I know of no other company that makes wraps of this hardy yet comfortable material.
The brain therapy wavelength and pulsation frequencies are exactly those used in successful dementia and brain injury trials.
However, we don’t have the science to prove that this specific device can reach the brain in the same way.
But, that’s why the Neurowrap Pulse costs $2,000 less than the Vielight.
Hundreds of studies show that this wavelength repairs the cellular energy factories (mitochondria), so the cells have more power to repair.
This wavelength also opens the blood vessels, allowing a greater flow of oxygen and nutrition where they’re needed.
Besides being a brain therapy device, you can also use the Neurowrap Pulse for pain, arthritis and inflammation relief.
Nushape Returns and Warranties
Nushape has a 100% refund with no-questions-asked return policy, but the return window is only 14 days. There is no restocking fee for returns. The Neurowrap Pulse has a 1-year warranty.
Nushape sells some of the higher-quality red light therapy devices you can buy. While we don’t have the science to back this specific device, we know that the Neurowrap Pulse wavelength and pulsations do relieve dementia and brain injury symptoms.
You should expect to see a reduction in depression, anxiety, memory loss and difficulty socializing.
Give the Neurowrap Pulse a 14-day trial with no risk except for the shipping cost to return it. Alternatively, invest in the device that sets the standard for all others, the Vielight Neuro, which I review here.
