Human-centric lighting is at the cutting edge of the lighting technology industry. Human-centric lighting is the term used to refer to lighting systems that adapt to ensure most conducive to utmost health and wellness for your body. This system mimics the spectrum of daylight and carries out color temperature and illumination changes throughout the day most similar to natural daylight because that is optimal for the human body and mind. The system is essentially an artificial sunrise to sunset. Case studies conducted in office spaces, schools, hospitals and more underline that these human-centric lighting systems have shown to improve alertness, mood, and well-being.
Adverse Effects of Improper Lighting Systems
Research has shown that improper lighting systems can adversely affect the sleep-wake cycle - which can help give way to long term and short term problems. Excess subjection to blue-rich light at night time is directly correlated to disruption of our sleep-wake cycle. In the short-term, disruption of the sleep-wake cycle can cause fatigue, reduced physical and mental performance, reduced productivity, irritability, prevent individuals from feeling fresh in the morning, and cause that groggy morning wake up. Research has suggested that this disruption can give way to long term issues such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, depression, mood and sleep disorders.
