Circadian Lighting Is Developed to Help Dementia Patients at UK Hospital

UK smart lighting and LED specialist PhotonStar said it has completed a circadian lighting installation at a dementia ward in London where the dynamically changing light levels are expected to improve patient health.
The system of 56 LED downlights at St. Mary’s is tied into a wireless PhotonStar control system called Halcyon that simulates daylight during normal waking hours by providing high visual and non-visual light levels. The non-visual frequencies, also known as “melanopic” lighting, includes light in the blue wavelength spectrum, which is associated with daylight and which suppresses the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. http://www.ledsmagazine.com
