Skypanels™ are photos of the actual sky
North Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2009 -
Over a million people have been affected during this rainy and grey winter season by Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as SAD. Research indicates that sufferers of seasonal depression can alleviate their symptoms by being outdoors. Skypanels™ offer relief to those affected by this disorder by bringing the essence of nature into the workplace and home in the form of a light panel that creates a virtual blue sky. Users who replaced traditional overhead light diffusers with this product sited elevated moods, less tension, and decreased headaches.
SAD affects up to one in 20 people and is caused by the lack of daylight exposure a person receives in the fall and winter months. A milder version of this condition, known as the "Winter Blues" affects nearly 60% of the population. Melatonin, a hormone, which has been linked to SAD and may cause symptoms of depression, is produced at increased levels during the winter months because the days are shorter and darker.
People who live with this condition often complain of feeling miserable, having a decreased sex drive, being tired, and experiencing an overall feeling of depression. Skypanels™ capture the essence of nature while creating the illusion of being under real skies and other natural therapeutic settings, thereby creating a daylight effect and boosting mood.
Skypanels™ are colorful custom designed, decorative translucent panels, that fit into standard fluorescent ceiling fixtures and replace the dull, brittle, plastic stock diffusers found in most commercial offices, hospitals, schools, and homes. Skypanels™ have been attributed to reducing tension and headaches by providing relief from the harsh glare of traditional overhead diffuser lighting.
The Mind Lab, a group of scientific researchers, for the chemists Boots, did a study and noted that exposure to bright colors in general held benefits. They found that blue and green made male subjects feel happier, while blue, purple and orange did the same for women. All colors give out vibrations on different frequencies. Blue uses a cool frequency and has a calming and cooling effect.
"Skypanels™ are photos of the actual sky," Chad Tyner, Managing Director at USA Skypanels said. "The light that emits through the translucent inks on a Skypanel™ is on the blue scale, therefore promoting the same elevated feelings of happiness that the color blue is attributed to."
