Title: CIRCADIAN-FRIENDLY AND DISTANCE-RESPONSIVE LIGHTING SYSTEM
Abstract:
A system to provide circadian-friendly lighting for nighttime hospital care comprising a lighting module and a transmitter tag that interface wirelessly wherein the lighting module comprises red-shifted light spectra, which is proven to be less disruptive to melatonin production than current blue-shifted hospital lighting; wherein the light output of the devices is modulated by the proximity of a tag to the device, with light intensity increasing with closer proximity between these two components and decreasing with increased distance, thereby providing hands-free lighting to caregivers in the specific locations where they need light to perform care tasks.
