Product Description

Product Description

This simple to use portable light box has two brightness levels and uses blue spectrum light tubes to simulate natural daylight. Brings near daylight inside whilst you work or relax to help combat those winter blues.

Small and portable for use anywhere a mains plug is available. Much more convenient than large tube units and better than LED versions as it does not create "spotting" in the eyes.

Supplied with Digital Switching Power Supply for worldwide use.

    Even if you're not struck down by some of the worst symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), you're probably just like everyone else in getting a bit run down and depressed as the nights draw in and the hours of daylight seem to almost disappear.

    There's little more depressing than getting up in the dark and coming home in the dark! SAD lights are nothing new, specially designed high-pressure lights which attempt to replicate the benefits of bright sunlight and hopefully spark up your dark day a little.

    Generally however, SAD lights have been so expensive, the effect on your bank balance is likely to undo any good work the light does itself.

    This product gets round that problem and offers an affordable and entry level option to try SAD lighting and see if it has a benefit for you - without breaking the bank.

    The unit's low cost is evident in its design and construction - this is budget stuff. And it's size also reflects its cheapness. But this is designed really for a quick top up of light, perhaps in the morning before work, or while you work at your computer, rather than being professional light therapy. With little more to do than sit and shine however, it's cheaper design and lack of robustness is going to be of little concern.

    It's designed so it can be stood on a desk or shelf, or hand held and comes with an adjustable mode to allow you to only use one side of the unit at a time, or with a different frequency.

    Make sure you read the instructions, these lights are not intended for continuous use and users should only expose themselves to the light for controlled periods of time.

    So pleased with first one I bought I now have two. One for upstairs to wake my brain up before driving to work at 5.30am. The other downstairs to use at the weekend when I eat my breakfast. Helps fight winter blues especially on very dark days. Been off anti-depressants for over 2 years - every little helps! Prompt delivery. Original light box now 3 years old and still going strong. Excellent value for money

    I was looking for my first SAD lamp, as I'm new to Scotland and the sun setting at 3:30pm had me very depressed. It may sound cliche, but this little guy changed my life! I use it for half an hour in the morning, and then if I need to for 20-30 minutes in the afternoon, and I truly feel like myself again. After a lifetime of suffering from the winterblues, I finally feel free from it! I didn't want to spend too much money, and it's actually nice that this smaller lamp is portable so I can take it from room to room. It's small and uncomplicated and does the job very well. No need to spend more.

    The light box has been very useful I have it on next to my computer at work, putting it on in the morning it helps me to get going and during these winter months has stopped me feeling so sleepy in the afternoon. Even my colleagues next to me have noticed a difference.

    I bought this for my mum for Christmas as she gets very down during the winter and always has done for as long as I can remember (probably SAD). This has made a massive difference to her, she has felt loads better within just 2 weeks of using it half to 3/4 hour every morning. She says she would recommend it to anyone. Really good value too!

    Although my home-office has a huge window, the room itself is sheltered by other buildings in the area and therefore doesn't get much natural light. The result is that it can be quite a gloomy place in which to work, especially in the winter months when it gets dark by around 3pm. To solve the problem, I decided to buy a full-spectrum natural desk light, which replicates the effects of outdoor light, and is supposed to have a beneficial effect on all that bask in its glory! These natural light products are suitable for people with SAD (Seasonal Affectation Disorder), and if you decide to purchase the product as a treatment device, you should use it for 20 - 45 minutes each day, preferably in the morning.

    The price of sunlight...

    Many of these natural lamps are really expensive - some costing hundreds and hundreds of pounds. I personally didn't want to spend too much, so I opted for the budget 'Lifemax Light Pod' which can be purchased for around £50. The Pod is a free standing device which can sit on your desk and illuminate your work area with some gloom-busting light. The product is technically classed as a 'light box' rather than a lamp, and therefore is more ambient and subtle in its output than a high powered lightbulb. The unit has an adjustable plastic stand at its rear which can be used to change the angle of the beam - I personally have it at its 'tallest' setting, meaning the flow of light is directed at the desk itself (and the mass of strewn papers which are currently on it!). This way my working area is illuminated, and it complements the ceiling light nicely.

    Measuring around twenty centimeters across by twelve centimeters in height, the Light Pod is made out of plastic, but feels well constructed and quite solid.

    First a little about light therapy for those considering this product. Bright light for the treatment seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, has been shown to be effective. In fact, light therapy has become one of the treatments of choice for SAD. Although how it exactly works is not completely understood, light is known to be a potent phase-shifting agent of circadian rhythms and acts on melatonin metabolism and secretion.

    So how much IS enough? Well, the minimal intensity of artificial light that appears necessary for an antidepressant effect in SAD is 2500 lux for two hours, or alternatively, a brighter light exposure of 10,000 lux for 30 minutes (Tam 1995). Is it safe? Yes, bright light does appears to be safe, and side effects are mild, if the light does not contain substantial energy in the ultraviolet spectrum. Also important to know is that in SAD patients, light has been shown to be most effective when given in the morning (Terman 2001).

    As you can tell, there is a lot of research to back up the use of light therapy if you suffer from seasonal affective disorder. And even if you don't, emerging research is showing that the benefit of light treatment is modest for people with NON-SEASONAL depression too!

    Having said all that, the Lifemax Light Pod 107a SAD Portable Simulated Daylight Box is one of my top recommendations. It has many handy features, one of the best being its portability: you can easily take it with you on trips if need be. And lets face it, if you can take it places and move it around easier, you're much more likely to use it!
