Sleep LED is a breakthrough lighting engine technology. The technology has been clinically studied and resulted in a 23% faster average time to sleep and a substantial improvement in sleep efficiency for the studied patients. The effects are due to the stabilization of the human autonomic nervous system, which is manifested through inactivation of sympathetic nerve and stimulus of the parasympathetic nerve through the use of this breakthrough technology.
Clinical studies suggest that Sleep Technology has beneficial effects on visual comfort, daytime alertness, mood, and sleep intensity in healthy volunteers. The study showed significantly higher EEG delta activity in the first NREM and last NREM episode compared to conventional LED technology.
Delta EEG activity (0.75–4.5Hz) was also measured to be significantly higher using a Sleep Technology LED over conventional-LED post-light exposure.
NOTE: Delta EEG (electroencephalogram) measurements record delta waves, the brain waves associated with Stage 3 non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, or “slow-wave sleep” (SWS), and aid in characterizing the depth of sleep.
When a spectrum enters the eye, our photo receptor cells measure the respective intensity of blue, green, and red light. The retina converts and transmits this data to the brain, where it is perceived as colors and luminosity. In other words, the brain interprets the results of calculations, and is not capable of recognizing spectra directly. This allows the brain to recognize the same colors in different spectra, such as natural light, artificial light, or images on a display.
In 2002, scientists discovered the existence of ipRGC (intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells), which transmit the intensity of blue light - a major part of morning light. We now know that these photoreceptor cells control the biological clock in humans. This in turn suggests that spectra affects the biological clock through stimulus of ipRGC cells. Research is showing us the effects on organisms of intensities in the blue portion of the spectrum that differ from those in natural light, even with light that we perceive as being the same color.
Eye Safety certification is a rating based on safety from analyzing the LED wavelengths. Sleep Technology received the RG-1 grade in Eye Safety certification. The RG-1 grade is granted to a safe light source for which there is no biological risk, even if our entire lives were spent exposed to the light source. The result means we can be confident that the light source in your room space is not going to cause harm to our delicate eyes.
Eye Safety refers to the international standard the International Commission on Illumination adopted as standard (CIE S 009:2002) which defines the standard of LED illumination for the purpose of safety for the eyes and skin. The relevant standard is defined in IEC/EN 62471.
When you walk into a room using Sleep technology, the first thing to notice is light that appears very similar to that of a normal LED - albeit significantly more gentle on your eyes. Sleep technology doesn't require any gimmicky CCT spectrum shifting or diode mixing (sunset dimming) to achieve its desired outcome.
