This helmet looks really interesting.

First the coverage area is very impressive 582cm2, almost twice as much as the $3000 lasercap.

Secondly, I notice the energy delivered is over 6j/cm2 in 20 minutes.

If this is the case, they must be using higher power diodes, from my calculations probably 20mw.

They don’t publish the diode power, but I don’t see how 80 diodes could get anywhere near that dose with 5mw diodes.

Lasercap has 224 diodes and a smaller coverage area, yet still doesn’t achieve that dose.

Something is fishy or this is a great deal.
They had an intro special of $399 but now its $599.

One thing I noticed in the presentation was that they are using laser diodes with a 678 nm wavelength compared to the 650 nm wavelength in the laser diodes we use. Does wavelength make that big a difference? The Theradome helmet diode spacing is pretty large compared to OMG’s. rolleyes

I’d love to hear what OMG thinks about this?

Their web site states that the helmet produces 440 joules so they could only be using 5mw diodes and it looks very much to me like false advertising, because this helmet is only producing a beam density of about 0.75 joules per cm2 which is completely ineffective.

Looks nice but I think it would be useless..

‘is wavelength really that important?’

well yes it is.  im not sure exactly wat the difference of 28 would be, but different wavelengths have different colours, and levels of intensity.  for example a laser with the wavelength of around 10nm (as opposed to 650 for the hairloss ones) is invisable and cuts metal.

Wavelength is important. The question should be:  Are we using the optimal wavelength?

http://www.photobiology.info/PhotobioInArt.html

This article has an absorption spectrum showing 650 nm to be about the lower limit for absorption. That data suggests that 720 nm would be optimal. Can anybody point me to data specific to hair loss therapy that shows that 650 nm is the optimal wavelength?

Can anyone confirm how much efficiency would be gained from diodes that are 678 nm over 650nm?
