Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) November 4, 2010
Sunsvigor products give users the ability to wake up to simulated sun anytime day or night. Our clocks “fall” back an hour as Daylight Saving Time ends. The idea is to make better use of daylight, but in many people the end of Daylight Saving triggers a negative feeling. A feeling of dread anticipating the long winter that soon will follow; days of leaving home and returning in the dark. Sunsvigor brings a little sunshine to those cold dark winter mornings.
Sunsvigor a Buffalo, NY-based company, knows the feelings winter can bring. The company offers products that help beat the winter blues. Sunsvigor currently offers five products that simulate sunrises and sunsets on demand. The products are alarm clock type devices that allow the user to gradually increase or decrease the light in a room over 15 to 90 minutes.
The Sunsvigor models 100 and 150 can be used to control a bedside lamp. Models 200, 260 and 320 have built in lamps.
“We are most excited about the new Sunsvigor Sunrise System 320. This is the only product on the market that combines a sunrise and/or sunset simulator with a therapeutic 10,000 Lux light box. We are able to offer this combination product for less than a person would pay for a bulky stand alone light box,” said Michael Carroll, Director of Operations at Sunsvigor.
It’s estimated that 30 percent of people in the northern states experience the winter blues or seasonal depression. It’s believed that an additional 10 percent suffer specifically from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Symptoms of SAD include fatigue, carbohydrate craving, weight gain or loss, depressed mood, anxiety and irritability. The primary cause seems to point toward the lack of sunlight. Light therapy and sun simulation have been shown as an effective ways to treat those that suffer. The lights make them feel better and more energetic. Sunrise simulation is also useful when a person is feeling the effects of shift work or jet lag. A simulated sunrise or sunset can reset a person’s body clock (Circadian Rhythm).
“Even if you remove the scientific data that backs the usefulness of these types of devices. Most of us just feel better when we’re exposed to warm bright light and we can wake to a gradual increase in light. We believe that everyone can benefit from our products and we back it with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee,” said Carroll.
