Daylight Simulator

Daylight Simulator "Day-Light"

By Carex Health Brands Inc.

Image description This handsome new bright light therapy unit supersedes our former Daylight "Classic" Model, presenting the same benefits at lower cost and with enhanced design. The required parameters for 10,000 lux light therapy have been thoroughly clinically tested at major university centers, and have been established as the international standard for treatment of winter depression, milder "winter doldrums," and other chronobiological, circadian rhythm sleep and mood disturbances.

Treatment regimens should be individualized, following the recommendations on our website (see especially our Automated Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire), and always with doctor's supervision in cases of full-blown clinical depression.

The general regimen consists of 30-minute early-morning exposure sessions, during which the user sits at a distance of 12 inches (30.5 cm) from the screen, and concentrates on the tabletop work surface – for reading, writing, laptop, breakfast, and so on.

The light level can also be switched down when the user wants longer exposures during the day. The flexible angular tilt allows the fixture to be used as an exceptionally powerful task or reading lamp, or for pleasant ambient lighting at a distance. A new, unique feature is the screen-height adjuster, allowing optimum positioning according to the user’s height relative to the height of the table and chair. The unit features a smoothly diffused polycarbonate screen that maximally filters out ultraviolet (UV) radiation – an important safety precaution. Spectral emission properties have been independently verified by laboratory calibrations at Columbia University.

The unique bulbs in the Daylight are rated for 20,000 hours operation, but in case replacement becomes necessary, you can order a set of three @ $19.99 + $7.50 shipping by calling the supplier with your credit card information at 1-800-387-0896 ext. 105.
