Promotes biological, physiological and psycholigical health

Research into light and health has shown that biodynamic lighting, which mimics natural lighting by ‘bringing the natural daylight indoors,’ has a highly beneficial effect on biological, physiological and psychological wellbeing and health.


Biodynamic lighting can also be an extremely cost-effective solution in care homes, hospitals, schools and office buildings.

Resets the biological clock

    • By restoring the biological clock, regulating the 24 hour sleep/wake cycle, especially for those people who spend most of their time indoors, for older adults or people suffering with dementia and Alzheimer’s, quality of life is enhanced
    • Light that creates more natural, inspiring spaces, enhances well-being and performances. Older people are more alert, active and productive throughout the day and sleep better at night
    • People with dementia can enjoy more activity during the day and less restlessness, including night wandering, at night
    • Pharmaceutical interventions and sleep inducing drugs can be reduced
    • Older people can make the most of life, enjoying more vibrancy and taking part in favourite activities, such as gardening, playing cards, meeting with friends or watching TV

Significant health benefits

    • Helps to maintain healthy bones, reducing the risk of osteoporosis in older adults
    • Enhances visual perception – things appear clearer and brighter, whilst health risks associated with reduced vision, such as falling and tripping, is lessened
    • Promotes longer, independent and more fulfilling lives for older adults

Highly cost effective

Once installed, biodynamic lighting is highly energy efficient, reducing your running costs as well as your carbon footprint. Significant savings can also be achieved because biodynamic lighting can:

    • Help promote a more efficient and productive workforce
    • Help reduce the need for pharmaceutical interventions and sleep-inducing drugs
    • Help reduce the need for extra staffing at night in care homes
