Circadian Rhythym

Just as the earth revolves around the sun our bodies revolve around light. The cues that are sent from light tell our body many things, including the time of day and when you should go to sleep, this is known as your circadian rhythm. “Circadian Rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hr cycle” (National Institute of General Medical Sciences). Circadian Rhythm is essential and Crestron programmed lighting is able to mimic the sun in situations where people are unable to receive natural light.

Companies are acknowledging the fact that employees circadian rhythm is tied to their work performance. In the work places that have a sea of cubicles with hardly any natural light, programmed lighting is vital to making sure that their circadian rhythm stays constant. With the help of Crestron Programmed lighting, employers are able to simulate the suns natural light throughout the day, this can help with employees working more efficiently.

Along with companies adjusting their lights to aid their employees work performances, Hospitals are following this trend very closely. Because some patients are unable to get up, let alone go outside, doctors are relying on programmable lighting to maintain their patient’s circadian rhythm. Crestron has been implemented into multiple hospitals already and has the capability to imitate the suns natural light. Together with having a sense of normalcy, programmed lighting has the potential to help them heal faster. “Studies have shown that hospital patients in sunnier rooms experience less stress, use less pain medication and don’t stay as long” (Lighting and Health, Jan 2015 pg 10). If this is the case, having programmed lights that mimic the sun is essential for the well-being of patients.

Crestron Lighting can help employers keep their employees efficient as well as potentially helping patients heal faster using programmed lighting to help their bodies keep up with their circadian rhythms.
