Human Centric Lighting: Going Beyond Energy Efficiency

Home / Studies / Human Centric Lighting: Going Beyond Energy Efficiency

A research study recently released by LightingEurope, the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association, greatly emphasizes on the business opportunity that is associated with the vast emergence of human centric lighting technologies by the year of 2020.  The study predicts that the human centric lighting industry can become a multi-billion-euro business in the near future.

The concept of human centric lighting is to develop lighting systems that promote wellbeing, mood and health, rather than from an aesthetic perspective.  Our WalaLightTM Healthy Lighting System is the perfect example of the type on technology the will make up the human centric lighting industry.  After conducting our own R&D over the past few years, consulting with brain science experts and with the use of many credible studies, we have developed the perfect lighting system that hits the exact spectral power distribution (SPD) that is required by the ipRGCs within the human eye needed for proper hormone growth.

This type of lighting system was not possible before the development of LED technology.  Although, many are familiar with the energy efficiency and durability of LED technologies, very little attention has been paid to the advanced control abilities.  Along with our patent-pending WalaLight System we have developed an advanced control system that completely automates the lighting within a facility (ex. Adult Living, Healthcare, Correctional and many other facility types) over a 24-hour period so that the exposed individuals will entrain their circadian rhythm.  Furthermore, the WalaLight system will adjust Kelvin temperature (2700K-6500K) throughout the day to create the ideal indoor environment to promote wellbeing.

The WalaLightTM System was the winner of the 2014 LINK Innovation Competition.  The competition celebrates unique new products and services in the long term care and senior living marketplace.
