    Supporting natural sleep rhythms

    Science shows that light has a significant impact on our health and well-being. Not only does it affect our mood, but it also controls our natural biorhythms. By mimicking natural daylight patterns in hospitals, where patients are indoors all day, artificial illumination can support a healthy sleep-wake cycle. HealWell has been designed specifically to achieve this by automatically changing the brightness and hue of the light throughout the day, reflecting the conditions outside.

    Researching the benefits of HealWell


    The technology was put to the test in the cardiology department of the Maastricht University Medical Center, in the Netherlands. The study measured sleep patterns, mood, and other variables in patients staying in HealWell-equipped rooms. To enable a comparison, the same measurements were taken from patients who were in rooms with conventional lighting.

    Glowing results


    The tests confirmed that light has a positive effect on patients. Compared to rooms with conventional lighting, measurements in rooms equipped with HealWell showed:

    • Improved patient and staff satisfaction

    • Longer sleep duration for patients

    • Shorter time taken for patients to fall asleep

    • Enhanced mood of patients, as derived from the HADS (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale) depression scores
