A new study from Lund Technical university, LTH, confirms that dynamic LED-light that adapts according to daylight variations improves the quality of students’ sleep.
Sleep related problems are on the increase in our society, due to modern living habits. And even more so among students .
“We made the study to prove the connection between dynamic light and sleep quality, and the results are clear”, say Stina Eriksson and Karin Wingren, student authors of the report at LTU. The study was conducted with the help from professor Thorbjörn Laike at the faculty of Environmental Psychology at LTU, and with associate professor Klas Sjöberg at the department of clinical sciences, Lund university, as case administrator, and with support from BrainLit AB and their light management system.
The customized light control management system, by Brainlit, made it possible to control the light dynamically, both in terms of varied spectrum and intensity, as well saving energy.
“Recent studies of all age groups all point in the same direction – adapted light positively supports performance and well-being. It will revolutionize our everyday”, says associate professor Klas Sjöberg.
