BrainLit’s light environments with BioCentric Lighting™ (BCL) mimic natural daylight indoors. BCL environments include sensors and algorithm based recipes, light recipes, to adapt to different users, occupations and times of day. The variation of the spectral composition in a light recipe promotes the natural circadian rhythm which increases efficiency and improves sleep. We cater to different segments such as office environments, healthcare, education and hospitality.
Individuals have different biological needs with regard to lighting environment. Various situations demand different lighting conditions. The BioCentric Lighting™ system is easily customized according to the unique needs of the individual and the situation. The light environment provides adaptable light to fulfill the biological need for each day, regardless of season. Ongoing research provides new understandings of the beneficial effects of light for improving sleep and wellbeing. The BioCentric Lighting™ system is easily adaptable to meet these new insights. It creates a future for indoor lighting where the circadian rhythm is synchronized with personally adapted light recipes.
What is the difference?
Linear lighting solution
Traditional LED and Human Centric Lighting (HCL) solutions operate with linear light control and fixed installations in regular power circuit without dynamic changes to spectra nor intensity.
Circular lighting solution
Each luminaire has a wide range specification to be able to expose a healthy, biocentric light. These luminaires are controlled and adjusted by the light controller, the LCS, which sends control signals to all luminaires, based on algorithms and related data, gathered from the sensors in the environment. This is a unique and patented system composition, where healthy light is generated, thanks to a feedback system where control signals are processed with machine learning and related algorithms.
What is a circadian rhythm?
Circadian rhythms are the result of an adaptation to earth’s rotation applying a 24 hour structure on bodily physiology. Humans are genetically programmed to be diurnally active. The body with its physiology and metabolism organized around 24 hours is optimally functioning when this rhythm is paced daily by light. Light is the most important synchronizer for the circadian rhythms in the body. Many of the bodily functions, such as sleep, hormones and metabolism vary with the daily cycle given by day and night. The innate rhythmicity of biological functions, where most fluctuate according to a 24 hour circadian rhythm, prepare the body for daily recurring events such as eating and sleeping.
How can BCL help?
It is evident that modern lifestyles vary significantly in relation to the natural light-dark cycle and influence our access to daylight. Eating habits, when, how and if we choose to exercise, travel schedules and work commitments all affect the bodily rhythms. These parameters are individual. People differ and so do their needs. The same light environment is registered by the circadian system very differently between individuals. People have different chronotypes that translates into their preferred timing of sleep and wake. Certain genes have been linked to morning-evening preference and genes that generate and regulate sleep and circadian rhythms are important for understanding the individual variances in sleeping behavior. The BioCentric Lighting™ system is easily customized according to the unique needs of the individual and the situation. The light environment provides adaptable light to fulfill the biological need for each day, regardless of season.
BCL can be used to improve both working and living conditions
An increasing knowledge of the importance of the lighting environments influence on wellbeing, learning and sleep has created a shift in how we look at lighting. Light is not only for vision but for synchronizing the body with the solar day.
