LIGHT THERAPY EXPLAINED

The sun as the source of life Sunlight and warmth are the basic conditions of life. They make plants flourish and provide us all with the necessary energy and vitality. Man is part of nature and the biological properties of our body have developed accordingly. In summer, the intensity of light is at its maximum because days are significantly longer and brighter than in late autumn and mid winter.

The unit of light intensity is called \"lux\". One lux corressponds to light intensity produced by one candle at a distance of one metre. On a summer day, sunlight intensity outdoors is approximately 50,000 - 100,000 lux. When the amount of daylight decreases, beautiful summer days will inevitably turn into autumn. At its best, early autumn can still be a pleasant time. We hope that the bright summer days will help us get through the dark winter months.

The amount of light under different conditions are as follows: 

  • Bright sunshine 100 000 lx
  • Bright light therapy 2 500 lx
  • Well illuminated offi ce 400 lx
  • General illumination in homes 50 lx

In autumn and winter, we spend a great deal of time indoors. Normally, light intensity indoors is approximately 50 to 100 lux, which is one thousandth part of the amount of natural light on a summer day.

What symptoms does lack of light cause?

In autumn and winter, many people feel tired and less energetic. Lack of light may also cause sleep disorders. Some people\'s appetite may increase leading to weight gain. Some may even experience depression. These symptoms are due to our body\'s normal tendency to adapt to changing circumstances: shorter days and smaller amount of daylight. This phenomenon is called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or Winter Depression. SUB SAD or the Winter Blues is a milder form of SAD affecting a considerably larger number of people.

With bright light therapy, you feel energetic all year round. Today, efficiency is expected from us throughout the year. We cannot sink in a \"winter torpor\" as our ancestors did. We must find effective means to keep up our positive spirits and activity. For this, we have bright light therapy which helps an increasing number of people overcome SAD. User experiences show that regular bright light therapy helps you maintain your work efficiency. Office workers and their employers in particular have learned to know the benefits of bright light therapy. Shift workers have found bright light therapy to be an excellent means to balance their irregular daily rhythm. Likewise, correctly timed bright light therapy speeds up your recovery from jet lag considerably.

The appliance is used to counteract the following symptoms of winter depression:

• Fatigue

• Mood swings

• Listlessness

• Sleepiness

• Lack of concentration

• Lack of appetite

Scientific studies show that the effects of bright light therapy are most effective when combined with simultaneours physical exercise. For example, you can place the Innosol bright light device in the vicinity of your training equipment, e.g. an exercise cycle. Innosol bright light device is effective, safe and handy Bright light therapy requires a minimum light intensity of 2,500 lux.

Not just any lamp that produces bright and intensive light, such as a halogen lamp, is suitable for bright light therapy. The Innosol bright light devices meet all the requirements set on high quality therapy. The light does not flicker and it is evenly distributed. The opaque shade that covers the entire light surface filters UV emissions. A sufficiently long distance from the device guarantees you a pleasant therapy session. The surface luminosity of the Innosol bright light devices is as low as possible to minimise dazzling.

The Innosol bright light devices are of extremely high quality. They have been developed and tested in Finland where both seasonal changes and variations in the amount of daylight are manifest and intense. Finland is one of the world\'s leading countries in bright light research. These studies have been the basis for the development of Innosol bright light devices. Although lack of daylight is most typical of Northern Europe, the phenomenon is also familiar in other parts of the world. In Central Europe, autumns and winters are also long and daylight is scarce. Innosol bright light devices have in Finland thousands of satisfied users, and they are becoming increasingly popular in other European countries. Flicker-free light thanks to electronic ballast
