WE COMBINE LIGHT AND HEALTH
THE IMPORTANCE OF LIGHT FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Instinctively, man has always known that light is essential for life and wellbeing. Light defines our connection to the rhythm of the day and our need for sleep. Daylight is healing and ensures energy for activity. The absence of light in the evening signals calm, rest and recharge and the interchanging cycle keeps the body and mind in balance.
In 2017, three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for their discoveries of the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythm. But more than 10 years before that, we at Chromaviso had begun to explore the effect of light and darkness on human health and the health implications of circadian disruptions. Here, the foundations for our business was laid.
HUMAN CENTRIC LIGHTING WITH CLINICAL EVIDENCE
Unlike other providers in the lighting industry, we specialize exclusively in evidence-based lighting for the healthcare sector.
Both our concepts, Chroma Zona® ergonomic lighting and Chroma Zenit® circadian lighting, have been reviewed through acknowledged clinical studies, with peer-reviewed articles published in international journals as well as practical tests to meet the specific demands for lighting suitable for clinical treatment and care in highly specialized areas.
The studies document positive effects on wellbeing, depression, fatigue, circadian rhythm, and sleep. This, together with our technological innovation, has paved the way for using light to ensure better health. Dynamic lighting has been transformed from a mere ”feel-good”, or nice-to-have, design object to a definite need-to-have element.
For our customers, this guarantees the effects on both patients and staff, making their investment a safe choice, rather than an experimental bet.
The medical applications are many and vary from an essential working tool in the highly specialized operating room, over 24-hour manned intensive care units, to active treatment for patients diagnosed with e.g., dementia, depression, anxiety or bipolar disorders.
THE POWER OF LIGHT
Light plays a crucial role in our well-being and can be used as a substitute for medication or as part of a treatment plan. This belief serves as the foundation and purpose behind our development, design, and implementation of innovative lighting concepts.
— We are pioneers and are aiming at setting new standards for clinically proven lighting solutions that can improve recovery and quality of life for patients and the working environment for employees.
PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES WITH ONGOING INNOVATION
Innovation is in our DNA, and our R&D activities are based on close collaboration with both researchers and clinicians at hospitals as well as staff and elderly at nursing homes.
Through daily interaction with professionals within health and care, we gather in-depth knowledge of working environments and needs for treatment with light. This insight is paired with strong innovation capabilities and expertise in the development of luminaires, lighting controls, lighting protocols, and user interfaces that provide the desired health effect, reduce cost and time of implementation, and maintain a high user satisfaction in both small and facility-wide installations.
Chromaviso’s in-house development team consists of specialists in health and lighting technology, photonics, design, engineering, and software development. Our implementation team specializes in user dialogue and training health and care professionals. This enables us to deliver a seamless turnkey solution.
Our quest is to promote life, health, and rehabilitation and make indoor environments healthy through ultimate lighting design.
This is why we dare to say that we transform the standards for evidence-based lighting.
EVIDENCEWe have built our solutions, expertise, and knowledge on research and evidence. Our driving force is to ensure that we deliver real value with documented results to our users, making evidence the cornerstone of our business.
LIGHTINGThe modern individual spends 90% of their day indoors, making us reliant on artificial light sources. We bring the natural light of the day indoors, creating the perfect work environment in demanding settings.
HEALTHOur goal is to develop and design technology that promotes health and well-being while also having a positive impact on our overall well-being, whether it's for patients, nursing home residents, or healthcare professionals. Additionally, we strive to create technology that can be used for treatment without the need for medication.
