Your circadian rhythm helps control your daily schedule for sleep and wakefulness. This rhythm is tied to your 24-hour body clock, most living things have one. Your circadian rhythm is influenced by outside elements like light and dark, as well as other factors. Your brain receives signals based on your environment and activates certain hormones, alters your body temperature, and regulates your metabolism to keep you alert or draw you to sleep.
Some may experience disruptions to their circadian rhythm because of external factors or sleep disorders.
The Luminetworx PoE Lighting System to improve Circadian Rhythm Control was designed and built to help regulate the sleep cycles and overall wellbeing of the occupant. The production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep cycles, can be inhibited by light, especially cool white light (with its large blue light component). To help regulate sleep cycles and improve the quality of sleep, control of the melatonin production cycle through the use of light is key. This technology can be used to help treat many sleep disorders, including jet lag, shift work sleep disorder, delayed sleep phase syndrome, advance sleep phase syndrome, and non-24-hour sleep/wake disorder (frequently affects those who are totally blind since the circadian clock is set by the light-dark cycle over a 24-hour period).
Luminetworx automatically creates for you a Circadian Rhythm, which is aimed at replicating the natural changes of the sunlight throughout the day.
