TUO Circadian Smart Products Can Help Conquer Shift Work and Night Shift Sleep Disorders
Night shift and other non-traditional shift work, leading to SWSD, increases the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Over time, working the night shift or rotating night shifts has been shown to reduce your odds of healthy aging by 20% and decrease potential lifespan by as much as 10 years.
One of the more frequent treatments sleep experts recommend for SWSD is light therapy. This light therapy is typically offered using 10,000 lux extremely bright therapy lamps at a distance of 16-24 inches from the eye for 30 minutes a day first thing when waking. Normal lighting in a home or office is 200-300 lux so these are VERY bright and often uncomfortable to use.
TUO Circadian Smart Products are the only solution on the market that work at normal room brightness and reasonable distance. TUO's approach isn't geared towards providing short-term therapy. TUO's scientifically-proven technology surrounds you and your family with healthy light for long-term results.
Why Don't Conventional Bright Light Therapies Work?
Conventional light therapy lamps trigger light-insensitive parts of the brain.
Conventional therapy lights aren't sunlight. They're designed to trigger specific areas of your brain that aren't highly sensitive to light. This is why traditional therapy lighting has to be so painfully bright.
Many therapy lights aren't 10,000 lux.
10,000 lux is too uncomfortable for most people to use regularly — especially at a distance of less than 2 feet. Because of this, therapy lamps ship at less than 10,000 lux or build in dimmers which make the light more comfortable but largely useless.
Therapy lights are so uncomfortable that people don't use them correctly or don't use them at all.
Users are directed to use 10,000 lux therapy lamps for 30 minutes 16 inches from the eye. It's challenging to see or do anything while doing this therapy so people skip it or leave the light too far away to be effective.
Therapy lights need to be used right after waking up to be effective.
Our circadian rhythms are most sensitive to light when we wake and when we sleep. Most people are busy getting through their standard routine first thing after waking up. Who has time to sit for 30 minutes and do nothing except get exposure to light? Isn't it cruel to ask someone struggling with sleep to wake up early just to do light therapy?
Why Does TUO Work When Other Light Therapy Products Don't?
TUO is scientifically proven to be the most effective circadian light therapy product on the market today.
TUO is partnered with the University of Washington, one of the world's top research centers for vision and neuroscience. Scientists there have recently discovered amacrine cells in the eye. These highly light-sensitive cells are the cells that TUO's patented, industry-leading technology affects to influence a person's circadian rhythm. This science is more effective than anything else on the market today and works at normal light levels.
TUO is low lux light therapy that works.
TUO lighting focuses on activating vision cones that are very sensitive to light. This allows TUO to influence circadian rhythms at normal lighting levels, around 200-300 lux. See laboratory testing results at 250 lux.
TUO is easy to use.
