Affordable Ultra-Low EMF Near Infrared LED Light Therapy Hat and Pad

The GembaRed Bascinet is our flexible LED pad and helmet unit!


  • 2 Wavelengths of Near Infrared Light, 810nm and 1050nm
  • Comfortable and flexible neoprene hat and pad
  • Hat has important forehead and back of the neck coverage
  • Zip into a hat and unzip to use as a pad!
  • Simple 1-button control activates a 20 minute timer
  • Ultra-low EMF design with external grounded DC power adapter

Our GembaRed Bascinet hat uses two of the most popular wavelengths for deep penetration, invisible Near-Infrared 810nm and 1050nm LEDs.

FDA Disclaimer: This hat can help support cognitive health as part of a healthy lifestyle per the FDA's guidelines for Low-Risk General Wellness devices. This product and information provided is not intended to treat, prevent, cure, or diagnose any disease. For specific conditions we recommend working with your doctor for their approval and recommendations.

Turn on and off with a simple single-button design! The single press initiates a 20 minute treatment with continuous wave (no pulsing) treatment. We feel it is important for users trying to support cognitive health that turning it on is as simple as possible, and that for safety users should use natural continuous wave light like how nature would deliver it.  For example one study found continuous wave near-infrared intracranial therapy improved gamma wave brain measurements. Showing continuous wave light can improve brain waves without needing to pulse the light.

The GembaRed Bascinet uses our Ultra-Low EMF technology with a grounded DC adapter to make sure the user gets minimal EMF exposure and having the convenience of on-demand usage with a wall-adapter.


Rated Wattage: 44W

Consumed Wattage: 19W

# of LEDs: 224 LEDs

Ratio of LED Wavelengths:

50% Near-Infrared 810nm*

50% Near-Infrared 1050nm*

       *note that the Near Infrared LEDs do not emit visible light, they will appear to not be working because they have no "color" that the human eye can see. The 810nm LED will have a slight red glow in a dark room when on.

Total Optical Watts Output:  2.352 Watts (2,352mW)

Treatment Area: 200 in^2 (1296cm^2)

Average Intensity (including empty areas): 1.8 mW/cm^2

Total Joules Per Treatment (20min): 2822 J

Average J/cm^2 Per Treatment (20min): 2.1 J/cm^2

Typical Usage:

Use as a hat or lay directly on the skin for 20 minutes per area. Can be used up to twice a day or as little as every other day for benefits. Allow the device to cool down between consecutive uses.


A recent review article on different clinically studied devices for the brain. They found "most prevalent energy per session was 1632 J" which our Bascinet emits 2822 J per session. So even though it is relatively low intensity, it still delivers adequate Total Joules over the treatment time. 

Another recent article confirmed that lower intensities performed better than high intensities for transcranial treatments. Which the Bascinet meets the range of intensities that are ideal.

"Our findings suggest that NIR light with low-power density (15–30 mW/cm2) is a more effective intervention than that with high-power density (40–90 mW/cm2)."

Versatile Product

I ordered the GembaRed NIR LED Hat/Pad to use both as a therapy for my brain, and also for my hips as I have osteoporosis. It is of good quality, comfortable to use, and my head does not sweat while using it as a hat. To use on my hips, I unzip it and lay the widest part across my hips. The one improvement I would suggest is it would be nice if the device made a sound instead of just the light going off to signal the end of the 20-minute session. I had also looked at the Weber helmet. It had more bells and whistles, but at $3,200.00, the fact that it could only be used on the head and had a no return policy except for a damaged item, I chose the more practical option.

Great Product

I love how versatile it is, and how easy it is to use. Have had it for several months and use it as often as possible.
