BIOPTRON® Quantum Hyperlight is medically approved and ideal for the treatment of seasonal depression.
Scientific studies showed that there is a change in the EEG signal under the influence of medical Quantum Hyperlight and that this effect can be used to alleviate depression or help in its treatment.
Exposure: 20 - 40 min. = 20 cm distance, for 40 - 60 min. = 30 cm distance or 60 - 120 min. = 40 cm distance
The BIOPTRON®’s pilot study - current scientific research, on the neuroendocrine effects of HLPL in the domain of visible and infrared light, specifically the secretion of serotonin, melatonin, dopamine and their possible positive effects.
Further, the researchers investigated the effects of the Quantum Hyperlight through the neuroendocrine-immune system on general blood parameters (red and white blood cells, hemoglobin, potassium, sodium, etc.) as well as insomnia, depression, heart rhythm, blood pressure, other parameters and the psychological parameters of personality.
The participants in the study were exposed to BIOPTRON® Quantum Hyperlight in 10-minute sessions (3 x per week on the face, with open eyes, at a 40 cm distance).
The results indicated a significant decline in anxiety, even for the subjects within the normal range of values. There was a considerable improvement regarding the somatization of anxiety disorder, i.e. a reduction of cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive symptomatology, as well as a significant improvement in the quality of sleep (evident by improvements in the melatonin levels).
The results showed increases in serotonin and dopamine levels (associated with well-being and happiness), but decreases in cortisol levels (associated with stress) during the treatment, indicating a decline in anxiety and associated symptoms. At the same time, the exposure to such light is beneficial for sleep because of the effects on melatonin, as shown by clinical parameters.
As a result, the general recommendation for sleeping problems with the Quantum Hyperlight is 5 minutes per day at a distance of 40-60 cm.
Skin-sensory and optic-sensory stimulation Light deprivation and consequently the disruption of the circadian rhythm is associated with the increased risk of serious psychological disorders, including depression.
Quantum Hyperlight has sensory and neural effects that can reduce the symptoms of seasonal affective depressive disorder (SAD) and nonseasonal depression: it has an intensity of more than 10,000 Lux. This is a clinically tested minimum SAD treatment dosage.
(Conventional light therapy devices provide a light intensity of 10,000 light units (called Lux). A daily treatment of about 30 minutes is considered effective. The light intensity in all BIOPTRON® products (BIOPTRON® MedAll, BIOPTRON® Pro 1 and BIOPTRON® 2) exceeds 10,000 Lux. For comparison, the luminance of standard room light is approx. 500 Lux; a cloudy day equals up to 5,000 Lux and mid-day summer sunlight reaches at least 50,000 Lux) -
