Human Centric Lighting (HCL) can have positive impacts on everyone. This includes students, patients, employees, and even passengers on an airplane. Lighting plays such an important role in our circadian rhythm and the more natural the light is (when compared to the sun), the better we will feel throughout the day. HCL simulates natural sunlight improving our mood and sleep. It can be used in homes, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, offices, and airplanes, just to name a few!
People often struggle to have a peaceful night’s sleep. Human Centric Lighting has a positive impact on the sleep cycle and actually signals the production of melatonin in the body. This natural hormone induces sleep, allowing you to rest peacefully through the night.
Productivity can be improved in classrooms by using Human Centric Lighting. There are studies that have shown using a cooler, whiter light helps increase productivity while a warmer, dimmer light helps promote relaxation during periods of rest.
Hospitals and Nursing Homes
Because HCL can improve sleep, hospitals and nursing homes also use it to benefit patients. This type of lighting can even help to relieve stress and anxiety since it mimics the sun’s natural light throughout the day.
Offices are similar to schools in the sense that Human Centric Lighting can improve productivity. Fluorescents that are too bright or dim or even flickering can cause unrest in employees. You would be surprised what a change of lighting can do to increase the employer’s bottom line at a job.
One place you wouldn’t think to use HCL is on airplanes. However, it can make the experience even better for passengers, particularly those on international flights. The customized lighting can help alert passengers when it is time for meals, sleep, and boarding / leaving the plane.
