Human-Centric Lighting Reduces Drug Reliance at Danish Psychiatric Hospital

Doctors, nurses, therapists report a calming effect from the Chromaviso circadian lighting system. Professional staff at a Danish psychiatric hospital have administered fewer drugs and noticed a marked reduction in patient outbursts and disturbances following the installation of a human-centric lighting (HCL) system that tunes brightness and color temperatures to a pattern conducive with daytime stimulation and nighttime rest. Aabenraa Psychiatric Hospital installed the Ergonomic Circadian Lighting system, from Aarhus, Denmark-based Chromaviso, in September 2015. HCL such as Chromaviso’s allows for blue-enriched light during the day, modulating toward ambers at night, mimicking the day/night pattern of the Sun and thus helping patients to maintain a circadian balance, which in turn promotes health and restfulness. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
