Healthy Light – LED Technology for Health and Care Applications
Light for better well-being: Peter Haumer, Head of Technical Sales at LUMITECH/KITEO explains in the current issue of the top-class magazine LED Professional why the imitation of natural daylight is crucial for your health.
The Nobel Prize of in Physiology or Medicine 2017 was awarded jointly to Michael W. Young, Michael Rosbash and Jeffrey C. Hall for their research on the circadian rhythm. Light is an important timer (“Zeitgeber”) for our inner clock and therefore significantly involved in the cell and organ rhythms as well as the sleep-wake cycle, as science and research agree.
Peter Haumer explains in the article “Healthy Light – LED Technology for Health and Care Applications” the basics of the circadian rhythm and discusses the benefits of special colour temperatures for medical staff and patients.
