What devices can I use AlzLife on?

Most tablets and smartphones have refresh rate of 60Hz (screen is updated 60 times per second). Devices with refresh rate of 60Hz are only able to generate maximum light frequency of 30Hz. The optimal light stimulation, however, occurs at the frequency of 40Hz. Frequencies less than 40Hz have NOT been shown to produce the same effect in regards to the clearance of amyloid beta protein. Thus, the minimum necessary refresh rate is 80Hz (one white frame + one black frame 40 times per second = 80 frames per second or 80Hz). This refresh rate is only available on the devices mentioned below.

Apple devices:

AlzLife is available for all iOS devices, however, the optimal light therapy is delivered by devices with 120Hz refresh rate. At this time, these devices include iPad Pro released since 2017. Here are links to least expensive iPads released in 2017: iPad Pro 10.5 and iPad Pro 12.9.

Android devices:

AlzLife is available for all Android devices, however, the optimal light therapy is delivered by devices with 80 to 120Hz refresh rate. At this time, these devices include Samsung Galaxy S20/S20+/ S20 Ultra (you have to manually set the refresh rate to 120Hz in the Settings), Asus ROG Phone 2, OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, Realme X2 Pro, Poco X2, Realme 6 Pro and Realme 6, Nubia Red Magic 3S, Xiaomi Mi 10 / 10 Pro 5G, Realme X50 Pro 5G, Razer Phone 2, Google Pixel 4, Sharp Aquos Zero2.

Alternative solution:

To receive the 40Hz light therapy on other devices, we recommend purchasing a supplementary standalone light device developed by our Gamma Light Therapy.
