Luminette® 

"New technology for light therapy treatment"

The luminette® is a lightweight, ergonomic, and effective device that ensures unp recedented comfort for the patient.

With its innovative design, the luminette produces a convergent light beam which penetrates the eye in a natural manner, just like sunlight. 

This beam impinges on the area of the retina that is most favorable to treatment, without affecting vision.

The light, emitted by the 8 electroluminescent diodes (LEDs) placed outside the field of vision, is concentrated by a diffraction lens engraved on a visor and sent to the pupil without dazzling the wearer.

The rechargeable battery in one portion of the luminette® lasts long enough for one effective light therapy session.

Luminette® 

The light you need...where you need it.

The luminette® was designed to provide light in sufficient quantity, at the right wavelength, to the part of the eye richest in receptors.

The innovative design of the Luminette® enables it to concentrate light beams in a precise spot, specifically the lower half of the retina, whatever the direction of the gaze and whatever the position of the head. 
Devices without this system have the major drawback of varying the light intensity received by the eyes depending on their position relative to the emitting surface (oblique rays, variable distance).

The effectiveness of the luminette is linked both to its design, which ensures excellent compliance with treatment, and to its technical qualities.

Optical qualities:

The patented holographic concentration optical device considerably increases the number of light rays passing through the pupil, thus producing a higher cornea to retina transfer coefficient that that of other products currently available on the market.

The holographic device sends the effective rays to the lower half of the retina over a surface area of 1.2 cm2 - the area most favorable to treatment where the ganglion cells responsible for nerve transmission are located. 

Spectral characteristics

Dominance of blue photons, which are the most energetic and the most efficient. This wavelength (468 nm) corresponds to a 100% suspension of melatonin secretion.

Recent research shows that, as far as the retinal receptors are concerned, the effect is maximal so that a shorter treatment time is possible.

Energy characteristics

The emitted light beam provides between 550 et 650 microwatts / cm2 of illumination to the cornea. This is the minimum efficacy level for treating seasonal depression. 

Comfort

The design, size, weight, and ergonomics of the Luminette® were especially researched and built for optimally comfortable utilization, even by wearers of eyeglasses and contact lenses. Vision is preserved, so that various activities may be performed during treatment.

Because of the optical principles employed, there is no dazzling during treatment.

With Luminette®, the 10 000 lux recommended for former light therapy systems are no longer necessary for achieving a beneficial therapeutic effect. This avant-garde device, with 2000 lux illumination received at the cornea, produces the same therapeutic effects as systems requiring strict conditions (distance 12 to 20 inches) with optical benches of 10 000 lux, without the unpleasant dazzling problems, while preserving mobility so that normal activities can be continued.

The luminette® is one more step forward in light therapy. With Luminette® we're talking not just about well-being but about therapeutic efficacy.

 

 

VAT Exemption - in brief

VAT Exemption 

IN BRIEF

VAT exemption applies to:
- Disabled or Chronically sick individuals buying for Personal Use.
- Registered charities buying for the use of the disabled person.


NOTE: the item purchased must relate to the specific disability.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is classified as disabling. 
Where required for treating SAD, lightboxes can be classified as zero-rated if the appropriate form is signed. 

Customers should note that Seasonal Affective Disorder is deemed to be disabling and may qualify for VAT relief. All products sold for these conditions are clearly marked as being sold as VAT free for which the appropriate VAT Exemption Form will be sent and must be returned in the envelope provided in order to qualify for the VAT-free price.

Products which qualify for VAT relief are for personal use only and must be for the specified condition e.g Seasonal Affective Disorder etc.

The sale of such products is based on these conditions.

If you are not sure if you qualify or you require further information you should contact us before purchasing either by emailing us at sadbox@aol.com or telephone (01704) 500505

(However Natural Alarm Clocks are not classified as treatments and therefore VAT will be included in the final price of these)


Claiming Exemption is easy

When placing an order you will have the option of choosing VAT exemption or not. 

If you choose the VAT exempt option we will send you a form which will need to be completed and returned with 7 days otherwise you will be charged VAT at the appropriate rate. 


Exemption is activated by signing and returning the form we have sent you. 
No other proof is required, but fraudulent claims could be checked and could constitute an offence. This form can be signed by the person themselves, a guardian, a carer, a parent or a representative.

An example of a fraudulent claim might be for example if a lightbox was purchased as a colour lamp for art work- this would not be a zero-rated supply.

Detailed information is available from the Customs and Excise website.

Items for use in an institution, or if you are re-selling the goods you are not eligible for zero-rating.
