Helight Sleep emits pure red light at a wavelength of 630 nanometers for 14 minutes, then gradually fades out.
Close your eyes. This wavelength passes through your eyelids and is picked up by photosensitive cells, triggering a biomechanism that helps you relax, predisposing the body to natural melatonin production.
This signals your body to rest and promotes a deeper, more restful sleep. The device will turn off completely after 28 minutes.
Helight Sleep is an award winning patented novel solution to help you relax, fall asleep faster and above all sleep better. After more than 60,000 units sold in Canada and France, we are proud to say we have a 94% adoption rate. Watch this video to see the attention the device got in the francophone media.
"Red light has definitely been working on me."
Arthur J. Ting M.D.
Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine
"This red light allows me to calm down, otherwise I spend the whole night at it."
"I personally continue to use the device every evening and subjectively I would have to
say I fall asleep quickly and have fewer evening interruptions of sleep."
Leonard Zaichkowsky, PhD
Professor, Boston University (retired), Performance Consultant
"It's like it landed us, anyway for me it worked."
"I've had dreams for the past 3 nights and I don't dream unless I'm on vacation."
News Anchor, CHCH
"No more trouble getting to sleep! 2 weeks in and already feeling more rested..."
"I've been using it for 2 years. It's a habit, a daily use, it's on my bedside table. [...] it allows me to manage the stress and tensions before competition.”
Helight Sleep is completely natural and takes advantage of a bio mechanism that is triggered passively, no effort has to be made on your part. Simply turn the device on. It will help you relax, fall asleep faster, will promote a deeper, more restful sleep and will improve sleep inertia (the feeling of drowsiness in the morning). It's 100% safe and may be used with children and infants (view Helight Kidzzz).
Science has studied the effect of light on sleep for over 50 years, but experts disagree on the potential beneficial properties of red light on sleep. While the harmful effect of blue light on sleep has been the subject of numerous scientific publications, unfortunately, research on the effect of red light on sleep is in its infancy with barely a few published studies. However, after more than 120 years of amazing scientific discoveries on the effect of light on the human body, among others, with red light and photobiomodulation, we can bet that the published studies added to the studies to be published on the effect of red light on sleep, can scientifically explain how Helight Sleep helps more than 60,000 people sleep better. Recent studies were conducted that would suggest red light has a possibility of inducing potent sleep, its possibility of acting as a nightcap and its potential effect on melatonin.
According to a 2022 article by Tufts University School of Medicine, acetaminophen (Tylenol) has two actions on the human body: reducing fever and relieving mild to moderate pain. Although it has been studied for nearly 150 years, how it works remains a mystery. It's because expert battles can last a long time that we offer a 30-day trial, so you can experience it yourself.
NASA's interest in sleep started in the 60's with the need to regulate sleep cycle of astronautes in space. Since then, NASA has developed a new lighting system for the ISS [BBC, Harvard Medicine] in an effort to mimic those earth-like conditions. More recently, they have studied and experimented with light at different wavelengths to imitate the natural phases of sunlight (blue in the morning, white during the day and red in the evening). This was our first inspiration for the development of our sleep aid device.
"When an astronaut's eyes are exposed to blue light, his or her body suppresses melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone.[...] In simple terms, the color red reverses the process. Melatonin increases, making the astronaut sleepy, while melanopsin is suppressed." - SPACE.com
"Sleep scientists have found that when these receptors are exposed to a particular wavelength of blue light —incidentally, sky blue— we feel more alert, because the brain suppresses melatonin, a key hormone in regulating sleep. In contrast, red-spectrum light
allows the melatonin to flow." - Scientific American
The device has been successfully used by a large panel of sports medical staff and performance directors. It is endorsed by Dr. Arthur J. Ting, orthopaedic surgeon known to have famously worked extensively with NFL players and Tiger Woods. Helight Sleep is currently being used by many high level athletes, both olympic and international.
LOU rugby team in Lyon, France, conducted a subjective observation of their 15 worst sleepers, all of which perceived improvement in their sleep quality scores with some describing a deeper sleep.
"Honestly, the device has changed my life when it comes to sleep. With the help of a smart ring, I have been able to objectively measure an improvement in deep sleep."
- Karam Al Hamdani, Head Athletic Therapist
The device has been proudly designed in Laval, Quebec, Canada by a team of half a dozen engineers who spent a whole year drawing, programming and choosing the highest quality components available.
A travel size design meant to help curb the shift in circadian rhythm due to jet lag.
Helight Sleep is the fruit of 3 years of research and development done in collaboration with engineers, sleep disorder expert Dr. Claude Gronfier, medical physicist Ph.D Olivier Caselles and a committee of cognitive scientists. This painstaking work culminated in the right combination of wavelength, timing, diffusion and intensity which makes this patent device so effective.
