LOWELL, MA & PHILADELPHIA, PA – Aurea Lighting, an innovator of high efficiency, healthy LED lighting solutions, unveiled the world’s first high-efficiency, truly healthy LED that eliminates unintended health drawbacks of traditional LED lighting and improves alertness, productivity and overall health. This new line, available in volume later this year, will include tunable daytime and nighttime panels.
Experts and consumers are increasingly aware that light from LED fixtures can affect sleep patterns and long-term health. There are two types of light: beyond the kind we can see (image-forming), the kind we can’t (non-image forming) can still impact the body’s circadian rhythms, causing other biological problems.
Current industry efforts – such as changing the visible appearance of the light through color temperature – do not address biological needs. Others use multi-colored LEDs, which compromises energy efficiency. Instead, Aurea uses a patented dye film to convert traditional low cost high-efficiency blue LED light into a light that syncs with the body’s psychological and biological needs – without sacrificing energy efficiency or light quality.
“By enhancing biological and emotional well-being, Aurea’s healthy lighting will create a revolution in the lighting marketplace. Unlike other solutions, our tunable daytime and nighttime lighting can deliver energy efficient lighting in a way that enhances the body’s natural circadian rhythms,” said Robb J. Osinski, Chairman of Aurea Lighting. “Use of our lighting means that students will be more alert, workers will be more productive, and patients will recover faster. Our lighting will also support melatonin production, which is an important agent for fighting cancer.”
Aurea Lighting is a subsidiary of Lowell, MA-based Bambu Global.
