It only takes 15 to 30 minutes of light therapy per day with the Litebook Edge to energize and lift your mood. The Litebook Edge helps individuals who suffer from SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, or who need a pick-me-up without the use of caffeine or medication. It's designed to mimic sunshine by emitting intense white light that's equivalent to 10,000 LUX at 20 to 24 inches from the face. There are no harmful UV rays. It uses long-lasting LED technology with two brightness settings. The affects of white light are far reaching and is used to shift your mood or shift the body clock to stay awake longer when adjusting to a different time zone, when traveling or when working the graveyard shift. The Litebook Edge is easy to use with a handy timer that automatically turns off after 30 minutes.
The LED technology mimics "action spectrum" which are key peak wavelengths of sunlight. Research demonstrates that the effectiveness of light therapy is based more upon the action spectrum over the amount of LUX intensity. Users found they needed 15 to 30 minutes per day with the Litebook Edge or the Litebook Advantage over larger, 10,000 LUX units because of the action spectrum.
The Litebook Edge has a thin, lightweight, portable design that allows users to take it with them on the go. It can be powered with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, AC adapter, or plugged in with four international plug adapter options. A small stand on the back can be pulled out and used to prop the device freeing users' hands so they can enjoy the benefits of light therapy while reading, eating, applying make-up, or working at a computer.
The Litebook Edge also comes with amber-tinted Blue Light Blocking Glasses. Individuals who are in front of electronics before going to bed have trouble getting to sleep. This is due to the blue wavelength of light emitted from electronics that tricks the brain into thinking it's daytime and therefore disrupts the body's natural sleep-wake cycles. Using these tinted glasses will counteract this problem and allow you to get the rest you need.
