LIGHTING SCIENCE PARTNERS WITH HUMANSCALE ON NEW BIOLOGICALLY-ENHANCED LIGHT
Biological LED Leader and Ergonomics Pioneer Optimize Health and Wellness in the Workplace
June 12, 2017 | Chicago, IL – This year at NeoCon 2017, Humanscale and Lighting Science® have partnered on a revolutionary new product that shines a light on the scientific breakthroughs being developed with solid state lighting (SSL) as they affect our circadian rhythm. With a focus on workplace productivity and wellbeing, the two companies are introducing a prototype that showcases its newest developments in biological lighting and performance lighting, underscoring their commitments to innovation and technology as well as to health and wellness.
Lighting Science, the global leader in next-generation LED lighting solutions, has been expanding its patented HealthE™ line of biological lighting for the commercial market. Their patented GoodDay® technology amplifies productivity by mimicking the physiological effects of sunlight, which has been scientifically proven to improved overall health through circadian rhythm and hormone regulation. Further, this carefully-engineered spectrum increases alertness, focus and productivity; decreases absenteeism; and lowers incidences of physiological disorders such as breast and prostate cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and insomnia.
Lighting Science has long understood the implications this technology can have in an educational, workplace, or health care environment, and is currently working across these industries to generate scientifically-accurate data that will change the lighting industry forever.
Humanscale has always studied nature’s imprint, from design to further understanding the impact of environmental factors on the body and its function, and is now working with Lighting Science to create ergonomic products that fully support and enhance well-being, biological lighting is a natural next step for Humanscale. Together, the two companies will develop leading-edge lighting systems that positively impact human circadian rhythms.
