LEDVANCE Human Centric Lighting Aids Patient Recovery

LEDVANCE have launched a new range of BIOLUX HCL products which are tailored to the specific demands of healthcare environments. The new products provide biologically optimized day-night lighting which reflects natural circadian rhythms to benefit both patients and medical staff, improving sleep regularity, concentration and mood.

To help support the wellbeing of patients and staff in healthcare facilities, BIOLUX HCL products from LEDVANCE provide biologically optimised day-night lighting that reflects natural circadian rhythms, to improve sleep, concentration and mood.

Dieter Lang, Human Centric Lighting expert at LEDVANCE, commented, “It is common for hospital patients to suffer from a loss of circadian synchronization, especially in intensive care units, which are often without significant quantities of daylight. A stable circadian rhythm can support good sleep and, therefore, good recovery. The LEDVANCE BIOLUX HCL range follows the natural rhythm of day and night by providing brighter, bluer light during the day which reduces in brightness and blue content in the evening. As a result, a healthy day-night rhythm for the patients is supported.”

Besides supporting the sleep rhythms of patients, the BIOLUX HCL range can improve the wellbeing and productivity of hospital staff, especially in rooms which are often without natural daylight such as X-Ray or MRI rooms. Furthermore, specific lighting designed for night shifts keeps staff active and alert at the late hour without desynchronizing their body clock.

The LEDVANCE BIOLUX HCL range consists of a control unit, panel and downlight which communicate wirelessly with each other. The products come with a 5 year guarantee when operated as part of a BIOLUX HCL system. The control unit, operated via a BIOLUX app, enables healthcare providers to select appropriate light modes for their facilities, with 5 preprogramed lighting modes available.

The full range is available on the LEDVANCE website: https://www.ledvance.co.uk/products/luminaires/professional-luminaires/biolux-human-centric-lighting-hcl/index.jsp

LEDVANCE BIOLUX products now come in environmentally friendly cardboard packaging with relevant product information immediately visible on the outside of the outer box.
