DOE’s PNNL Reports on Tunable SSL Research at Senior Nursing Center

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has published a research report on a US Department of Energy (DOE)-funded study on the effects of tunable lighting on elderly patients residing in a nursing center. The study titled “Measuring Light Exposure and its Effects on Sleep and Behavior in Care Center Residents” revealed that sleep patterns generally improved for residents exposed to the tunable lighting with spectral power distribution (SPD) and output levels programmatically controlled. The lighting for health and wellbeing research took place at the 99-bed ACC Care Center in Sacramento, CA. You can peruse the full report, on the DOE website, in PDF form. https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2020/01/f70/ssl-2019_acc-care-center_realistic-settings-report.pdf
