Light that serves the human being.
Human Centric Lighting lays the focus on the impact of light on human well-being and health. The spectral composition of the artificial light, expressed as the most similar colour temperature, as well as its temporal change are modelled after the course of natural daylight and replicate it to the greatest extent possible. These parameters are decisive when it comes to whether or not the light has an activating or relaxing impact on the human organism. Light is knowingly affecting our “inner clock”. A lighting that is modelled after natural daylight supports the natural biorhythm of humans around the clock: It makes a human being feel well, potent, and able to sleep better.
Light that adjusts to the human biorhythm
Responsible for the biorhythm of human beings is their hormo- nal balance, particularly that of melatonin, which is responsible for our wake and sleep patterns. The share of blue in daylight controls the melatonin level in the human body via receptors in the eye, and thereby the ability to concentrate. It also affects the alertness and the readiness to sleep. If the artificial light adjusts to the natural human biorhythm via the control of the colour temperatures, among other things, our ability to concentrate and our performance can be increased significantly. Scientific
studies* show that, for example, the rates of mistakes at schools were reduced by up to 45 % while the speed of work increases by approx. 30 %. Even at workplaces, employee‘s level of performance increased by almost 20 %, in addition to a higher motivation level.

Prerequisites for health light
In order to successfully realise Human Centric Lighting projects and to design illumination that is biologically effective, three require- ments are of central importance:
Human Centric Lighting is the light of the future. And this future has already started today: OEM Systems Group is offering an complete system for a straight-forward and efficient entry into MixedWhite applications – from ECG via LED modules all the way to the Touchpa- nel for easy-to-use control.
