Lucimed, a Belgian company, is releasing the new Luminette head-worn light therapy device. Bright light, particularly in the blue spectrum, is well known to control our circadian rhythms. Long winters and indoor living can severely limit how much light enters our eyes, causing all sorts of emotional issues, worsening the quality of sleep, and bringing on the dreaded Seasonal Affective Disorder.
The Luminette is worn like a pair of glasses, but instead of improving your vision it shines bright light into your eyes. This allows the user to walk around and do everyday chores while receiving light therapy, something that most previously available light therapy devices, being stationary, could not do.
The device comes with a matching app that takes into account a variety of parameters, such as length of sleep and light exposure, to create a patient-specific program to adjust the circadian rhythms. The user simply enters the various data requested by the app, including any melatonin ingested, and it spits out a routine that it calculates based on those numbers.
Here’s a promo video presenting the Luminette:
