The Lifemax powerful SAD light panel emits 10,000 lux (as recommended by SAD.org.uk) to help combat the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder or the winter blues.
The Lifemax SAD Therapy Light offers medically approved treatment to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in an attractive slimline lamp. This portable SAD light uses a blue spectrum CCFL tube with a life of up to 20000 hours rather than LED’s, as these can create “spotting” and discomfort to the eyes.
Bright light entering the eyes changes the brain chemistry and stops the production of melatonin, the chemical that makes us drowsy at night. Seasonal changes, especially in late Autumn and Winter with reduced sunlight, may create SAD. Some symptoms of SAD are: excessive tiredness, weight gain, social withdrawal, depressed mood, tendency to oversleep, irritability, difficulty in concentrating and decreased libido. Research has shown that by supplementing your exposure to daylight for 1-2 hours a day, it can combat the effects of SAD, jet lag, Bulimia Nervosa, fatigue and other forms of depression. The medically approved Lifemax SAD Therapy Light introduces near daylight into your indoor area while you work or relax and can relieve these symptoms.
With a weight of just 290g, the compact Lifemax SAD Therapy Light can be used anywhere that a mains plug is available and has a built in pull down stand with adjustable angle or can be wall mounted. There is a sliding dimmer switch on the front of the item so that the light can easily be dimmed if desired.
The Lifemax SAD Therapy Light is a class IIa medical device that conforms to the essential requirements of the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC and has a power supply that is cooled to medical device standards.
