Since 1991 Lumie has been researching and designing bright lights to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other conditions. Our first Bodyclock – an alarm that wakes you up with increasing levels of light – was the world’s first wake-up light. It brought light therapy into the mainstream.
Over the years Lumie has worked closely with the scientific community. All of our products – the broadest range in Europe – are based on published research and designed by us from our base in Cambridge. Lumie is in the EuRhythDia consortium investigating circadian rhythms and type 2 diabetes, and is working with Liverpool John Moores University sports science department.
Lumie products are medical devices, certified to the Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) and supplied to the NHS. Distance and brightness levels (lux) are independently verified and Lumie is registered with the government's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.
The benefits of light therapy reach far beyond SAD. Our lights help you to sleep well and get up in the morning, beat the afternoon slump, conquer jetlag and look after your skin. They also optimise sports performance and, as an official supplier to British Swimming, we are proud to provide lights to Great Britain’s elite athletes. We continue to find new applications for light therapy, such as treating acne, developing Lumie Clear with the support of leading dermatologists.
Lumie products are sold in many UK high street retailers and department stores, as well as through distributors in North America and Europe but the only way to get them with a 45-day trial is direct from Lumie.
