A little off topic but I think some members may find this project interesting.

A mate I met through business networks introduced me to this therapy. I intend to test them for use during meditation as well.
Here is the research I have done so far. My NIR LEDs arrived today.

Yes indeedy….  O0

Prime candidate here lol.

Did you use the firm that I linked to you a couple of weeks ago Jim? I’m still waiting for a shipping date.

Cheers Graham.

Hey Grum I bought my mine from Chinatown. (aliexpress) I've also bought solderless connectors as I'm looking at the viability for those with a soldering iron to DIY.

Can you provide a link please Jim.

I've only bought the 850nm 3528SMD. I'll go bigger on the next roll. https://www.aliexpress.us/item/1005005907710105.html

Finally, after requesting a refund the company has given me a tracking number and a short video of the 810 nm LED strip.

Hey Guys.
Since my stroke I’ve completely lost confidence in my judgement….
The LED strip is 5 M long and labelled 24 Volts. It has been made up from shorter strips, soldered together. Am I correct in thinking that this is the working voltage, no matter the number of LED’s used?

I don’t want to burn the $#!t out them….  ;D

Cheers Graham.

Infrared LEDs have a forward voltage of 1.2 volts at about 20 mA.
So you are looking at no less than 20 LEDs in series. (20 x 1.2 = 24 volts.
For longevity, I would use a couple more.
If you have more than 20, then parallel each 20 (or more LED strips) up.

Or you could have 10 (or more) LEDs per strip and work on 12 volts.

Again because 12-volt systems can go as high as 14 volts, I would use a couple more LEDs per strip for safety.
In practice LEDs have a lot of tolerance for slight overvoltage - but the problem is you can't see infra-red. If you use your smartphone camera, you may be able to detect when they are on and see how "bright" they really are.


An afterthought: You could use a visible LED in parallel across two of your infrared LEDS as a visible indicator that your system is working. If the voltage is too low then parallel the visible LED across three infra-red LEDs.

That is my understanding Grum. If you got the 850nm you can see them dimly lit on 12v.

Thanks Jim.
On closer inspection the LED’s are running in parallel with the supply rails, each with its own SMD resistance. We powered up the entire strip and you can see a faint Red glow and feel the heat being generated. Luckily the strip can be cut at 100 mm intervals so we are printing a skull shaped cap to put 200 mm lengths into it.

More to come, cheers Grum.

Could you share the stl of the cap? I've wired mine up but not sure about the hat :) I've just made some IR glasses. Took an old pair of specs and just stuck a 100mm section across the lenses. Want to see if it improves my vision. I'm only using a 9v battery but I think I'll plug it into a power supply Edit added doc re eye treatment that I put together.

Hey Jim.

The .stl file is nearly 50 mB is it too large to share ?

Here’s the prototype in action.

Cheers Grum.

excellent work! What made you decide on that config for the LEDs? i'm going with this layout.

Hey Jim.
We weren’t sure about the angle of these particular LED’s so opted for a tighter grouping. My major damage is confined to my right hand and arm with a lesser injury to my right leg. From this I concluded that I needed to concentrate on the Parietal lobe?? Luckily I’m seeing the Neurologist later this month so I can confirm this and make any changes later.

I have only had one 15 minute session so far, just about to do my second day’s therapy. No change noticed as yet.

Cheers Grum.

Electric pulses may ease paralysis BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c4n1g7dr48go

The above article seems to vindicate what I have already done.
I discovered a cure for Reynaud's disease by the use of the following tool. I originally paid £80 for mine but got another one on Aliexpress for under three pounds. Unbelievable introductory offer price. Anyhow you can get one for around 10 pounds plus tax.

 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005005448380185.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.main.9.18d90ExS0ExSL8&algo_pvid=3116ef3d-5bcc-4bb9-8198-4f5c9f2f4df2&algo_exp_id=3116ef3d-5bcc-4bb9-8198-4f5c9f2f4df2-4&pdp_npi=4%40dis%21GBP%218.43%218.43%21%21%2175.33%2175.33%21%40210388c917163111219754521efdee%2112000033120941763%21sea%21UK%214883440375%21&curPageLogUid=nJlaSIuEkrnA&utparam-url=scene%3Asearch%7Cquery_from%3A

It is essentially a violet ray and is a high-frequency Tesla coil. The plastic or glass electrodes are there to prevent a huge electric shock.
I have used mine also to remove a mole on my face which looked like a pre-cancer. So I zapped the hell out of it. Result =  No scar- nothing.
I would not ordinarily post about this stuff but I believe it can really help damaged nerves 100% and some of our researchers are in need of help.
Recently I suffered from pre herpes or something like that - a very uncomfortable lip infection. The device did hurt, but the pain was bearable. It killed the virus or bacteria stone dead.
If you feel really adventurous you can replace the wand with a stiff copper wire - then you have a great ou research tool!
There is also anecdotal evidence that the latter removes verrucas without leaving a scar.
The device is known to boost circulation.
Good luck and good health.

I've got an early 20th century version of one for these. How did you use it to fix Reynauds? It gets very annoying this time of year trying to work with my hands. One day when out mowing had it go up to my elbows. I'm pretty healthy otherwise

I cured it purely by accident.  I was working on my cuticles and fingernails because I discovered I had developed vertical ridges on my fingernails. ie a sign of aging. I also worked on the rest of my fingers.  I had suffered from "white finger" for some time - another sign of aging.
My first surprise came a couple of winters ago when I had to remove snow from my car. I was surprised when I got inside to discover my hand and fingers a very healthy red colour.
Previously I would get in from the cold and bathe my hands in warm water in the sink and suffer excruciating pain as the circulation recovered. (I have told my doctor about this cure.)
I would recommend a half hour at a time working on the extremities. So that would be both hands and also toes.
The high-frequency massacres the bugs in your body which I assume also includes bacteria sticking to the inside of blood vessels - hence the improvement in circulation. I also use it on my head, which is why I posted here.
A healthy blood supply is essential for a healthy body-  no matter what your age.

I originally bought the device because I watched this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHaSDDnWeG4&list=PLZNpOcwXLSyZKHccI_RPCvFn04XbS4GHT&index=39
If you cure your Reynauds, please let us know.

Good health.
