Lumie Bodyclock Spark 100 offers the perfect introduction to the benefits of sleeping and waking with light. The essential Bodyclock functionality is the same with a sunrise and sunset of 30 minutes, but with the following new features: adjustable sunrise light intensity; nightlight; light-sensitive auto-dimming display; and tap-control snooze.
Lumie Bodyclock Glow 150 offers the same functionality as Bodyclock Spark but with the option to adjust the sunrise and sunset duration to 20, 30 or 45 minutes; and a choice of nine sleep/wake sounds* including white noise.
The new products also reflect an upgraded design for the Bodyclock range that provides a sleek and stylish addition to the bedroom as well as delivering proven health benefits to the user. They simulate a real sunset and sunrise by closely mimicking their colours and using the dome to diffuse the light 360°. Both products, like the rest of the Bodyclock range, are Class I Medical Devices, which means they have been rigorously tested to European health and safety standards.
Light exposure is the most influential external factor on our sleep/wake cycle. We seem quite happy to have all the lights on at night (often increasing our alertness levels), but first thing in the morning we are fumbling around in the dark feeling groggy and grumpy! It doesn’t have to be this way. Light reduces melatonin levels (a hormone that helps us go to sleep) so used in the right way, it can strongly reinforce a feeling of alertness, improve mood and give us the energy we need. That means you can wake up feeling refreshed every morning! And what’s more, light can wake you up much more gently than noise can – making what was once an uncomfortable experience much more of a pleasure!
