As the days get shorter and SAD sets in, Lumie is the go to wake-up call for many. The Cambridge-based light therapy specialist has been in touch to tell us about their new light.
Lumie has just launched its new premium wake-up light.
The Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D is an upgrade on the Luxe 700. It offers AB radio in addition to Bluetooth and low-blue light to make it non-alerting at bedtime.
Using light in this way has been shown to improve mood, energy and productivity as well as the quality of sleep and awakening.
Lumie was the first to pioneer the wake-up light concept in the early 90s. Furthermore, these products are certified medical devices and therefore backed by academic research and rigorous health and safety standards.
In addition to the new DAB radio function, Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D features a low-blue light so it is non-stimulating at bedtime. This means that it also more closely mimics the colours of a real sunrise and sunset.
You can select from more than 20 wake-up and sleep sounds including white noise. You can also enjoy high-quality audio; in addition to DAB radio, you can stream music via Bluetooth or play music via the USB port, which you can also use to charge your phone.
Dr Victoria Revell, Chronobiologist, University of Surrey said:
We know that a strong light signal at dawn and dusk is important for keeping our body clock on track, particularly in the winter months, as it provides a clear transition between day and night. The low-blue light in the sunset feature on Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 750D should encourage the brain to switch off helping you to fall asleep and have a good night’s sleep.”
