Infinite combination of variables including color, pulsating rate and intensity of light stimuli will be utilized in the Light Awake wake up experience
Scientific research with animals and human beings have shown there is a specific type of light required to achieve the best stimuli for the “wake cycle”. Previous research has shown exposing healthy men and women to “blue” appearing light on the short wavelength spectrum (446nm to 477nm) results in melatonin suppression 3x more potent than long wavelength light above 530nm.
Other studies have shown that a shorter wavelength of the same color light is more effective increasing heart rate, body temperature, evoking circadian phase shifts and inducing circadian clock gene “Per2” in humans. LightAwake technology utilizes proven science supporting light effects which best stimulate the brain. The Light Awake technology user can choose the color, pulse rate and light intensity as some users will need a very bright light while others may require barely any light at all to wake them. Some people may for example respond well to yellow or white light and not like the pulsating features. Most people after the passage of time, have a tendency to adapt to stimuli and what was once effective, may not now be as effective and may require a change, a new set of light, pulsating combination.
The LightAwake technology provides for the variables of color, pulse rate and light intensity to be selected or customized at every use. Research will find the best combination of light properties to shift from sleep to wake cycles a person and pass the science on to Light Awake users.
