Portable
Day-Lights lift easily off the stand – no nuts or bolts to unfasten. You can also use the light unit without the stand, or put it on a shelf to create a "light window."

Glare-Free, UV Blocked
Day-Lights have a diffusing lens that protects you from the potentially harmful UV spectrum. The lens also allows you to receive light intensity of 10,000 lux without the blinding glare experienced from using systems with clear or prismatic lenses.

Easy on the Eyes
Three 40 watt, specially designed biaxial (compact fluorescent) light tubes provide a bright light source of 10,000 lux that is not only safe, but also easy on the eyes.

Flicker Free
A high-efficiency electronic ballast (20,000 cycles per second) eliminates the annoying fluorescent light flicker that can be experienced from using light boxes with inferior magnetic ballasts (only 60 cycles per second). Electronic ballasts do not emit electro-magnetic radiation.

Adjustable
The height-adjustable, metal stand allows you to position the light in front and slightly above your face. A slight downward angle simulates light coming from above the horizon in springtime.

Who Can Benefit from Day-Lights?

A growing body of research shows that bright light therapy can relieve certain physical and emotional; conditions by regulating our internal biological rhythms, or resetting our body clock during the fall and winter months. This research points to the importance that daylight plays in promoting health and well-being, and offers hope from those who are light deprived.

Are you light deprived?

Many of us are daylight deprived. In fact, most people spend more than 23 hours of their 24 hour day indoors, where illumination rarely exceeds twilight levels. The daylight deprived are typically those who:

-Live in northern latitudes where daylight hours are
seasonally shorter
-Live in cloudy or overcast areas, where dark days
are common
-Are homebound, and cannot get outside easily
-Work at night or irregular shift schedules.

The daylight deprived often experience one or more of the following problems:

-The Winter Blues, typically accompanied by low energy levels, moodiness, social withdrawal or a general feeling of being down
-Difficulty falling asleep and waking up at the desired times, and a drowsy, tired feeling during the day, decreased alertness and performance
-Trouble adjusting to an irregular work and travel schedule
-Possible craving for carbohydrates and associated weight gain.

If you are one of those people who dread the short, dark winter days and feel light deprived, Day-Lights can bring you the light of springtime any month of the year!

How Day-Lights Work

Photobiological research points to the importance of the internal biological clock, or body clock," in your overall well-being. Day-Lights provide light of daytime intensity (early morning/late afternoon spring-time levels) to help you put your body clock "in sync."

The Care and Setting of your Body Clock
An overwhelming amount of research shows that light of daytime intensity is a critical element in body clock synchronization. The daylight deprived do not receive adequate light of daytime intensity from conventional lighting.

When light hits the retina of your eye, the retina transmits impulses to your body clock located in the hypothalamic centre of your brain. When your body clock is working properly, your day/night activity pattern is synchronized with your work schedule and lifestyle and you "feel better."

Enjoy the light of springtime everyday
Day-Lights can be helpful for anyone who feels light deprived. A daily session of 30 minutes sitting 12 to 15 inches from the light is sufficient for most people during the fall and winter months.

Day-Lights produce 10,000 lux (the level of light illumination), which is roughly equivalent to light levels on an early spring morning. (The typical illumination level in an office is between 250 and 1,000 lux – equivalent to light levels at sunset.) 10,000 lux is generally considered optimal for increasing the light requirements of the daylight deprived.

Day-Lights also feel sunnier than ordinary fluorescent lights because they emit rays of the warmer color spectrum (3000 Kelvin), and minimize the blue spectrum. (Kelvin is a measure of the light color spectrum.) Office lights typically emphasize cool white light (5000 Kelvin, higher blue spectrum). Soft white light produces less glare and is easier on the eyes.

Because of the potentially harmful effects of the ultraviolet light spectrum, we design Day-Lights to be ultraviolet light  free. Unlike sunlight or a tanning lamp, Day-Lights will not give you a tan or burn

Remember, it is the brightness of light, not the color spectrum, that determines the light therapy benefits. Using a Day-Light is as safe as taking an early morning walk outdoors on a clear spring day.

Why Choose Day-Lights?

When you are shopping for a bright light therapy system, be careful to compare each lamp on a feature by feature basis. Quality bright light products are constructed with only the finest materials: money-saving shortcuts are never taken that might compromise the safety and effectiveness of the lamp.

We are proud of the quality of our Day-Lights, which offer you the following advantages:

Proven Effectiveness:

Clinically Tested
The Day-Light 10000 Classic model has been used in light therapy clinics across North America for over ten years. They were also used in several of the studies that led to the Canadian Consensus Guidelines recommending light therapy as a first line treatment for SAD.
Recommended by Doctors
In Canada, physicians recommend Day-Lights more than any other bright light system because of their proven track record.
Satisfaction Guaranteed
If you do not like your Day-Light for any reason, you may return it within 30 days with proof of purchase for a full refund.

Quality/Value:

Efficiency
Day-Lights generate 10,000 lux, the optimal intensity for 20-30 minute daily light therapy sessions. Remember, at lesser levels of illumination, you will need to sit much longer in front of the lamp to receive the same benefit.
Glare-free
All Day-Lights have a diffusing filter that softens the light and makes them more comfortable to use. Without a diffuser, 10,000 lux lamps can produce a lot of glare.
Flicker-free
Only high-efficiency electronic ballasts that cycle at 20,000 cycles per second are used to construct Day-Lights. Electronic ballasts do not emit electro-magnetic radiation and are flicker-free.  Lights constructed of inferior magnetic ballasts cycle at only 60 cycles per second may flicker and lead to headaches.
Easy on the Eyes
The specially designed biaxial (compact fluorescent) light tubes used in Day-Lights emit a soft warm light (3000 Kelvin) that is easier on the eyes than the cool white fluorescent lights (5000 Kelvin) used in most office buildings.
Guaranteed
Day-Lights are warranted trouble-free for five years during normal use (bulbs excluded).

Safe:

UV Blocked
Day-Lights are equipped with an acrylic filter that protects you from the potentially harmful UV spectrum of light.
UL/CSA Approved
Daylights have been approved safe according under Canadian and US electronics standards.

Flexible & Innovative Designs:

Adjustable
The Day-Light 10,000 Classic model come with a height-adjustable stand, but can also be used as a light window and set on a shelf. Our Day-Light 10,000 F/X has an adjustable arm with three joints and a swivel for exact positioning of light.
Doubles as Work Lamp
Because of its clamp base, adjustable arm and louvered lens panel, the Day-Light 10,000 F/X in particular also makes an excellent work lamp.
Portable
The Day-Light 10,000 Classic lifts off its stand and is equipped with a handle on top for portability. The Day-Light 10,000 F/X weighs only 7.7 lb and is light enough to carry anywhere.
