New Day-Light™ - Light Therapy to Meet Your Needs

New Day-Light™ - Light Therapy to Meet Your Needs

Uplift Technologies has been manufacturing quality Day-Light bright light systems for years. Day-Light technology complies with industry standards for safe and effective light therapy treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder and the less severe version of the 'winter blues'.

Dartmouth, NS (PRWEB) October 9, 2004

Day-Light from Uplift Technologies Inc. is new, improved, and ready for the first full season of distribution. Day-Lights are bright light therapy systems used to help alleviate symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and the less severe version the ‘Winter Blues’.

“The concept for the New Day-Light came from consumer comments,” says Michael Speraw, President of Uplift Technologies Inc. “Until now, there was not a bright light system on the market that complied with conventional light therapy standards, and met user preferences for smaller size and versatility.”

These specially designed systems emit 10,000 lux light intensity in morning sessions of 20-30 minutes – the recommended dosage for the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Day-Lights work to lift the spirits of those prone to seasonal mood swings. Day-Light now features 4,000 Kelvin color temperature bulbs which emit the optimal color spectrum as recommended by light therapy experts. This season’s model also comes with a new full-color retail box and more durable packing materials.

Uplift Technologies Inc. has been manufacturing Day-Light technology since 1993. There are approximately 40 million North Americans who suffer from SAD or the ‘Winter Blues’. Symptoms include lack of energy, cravings for carbohydrates, and an overall feeling of lethargy. Symptoms return annually during the fall and winter months when daylight hours are shorter and more time is spent indoors.

“Without the use of the Day-Light I found I was missing days and days of work at a time because I just didn’t have the energy to even get out of bed. With Day-Light I am able to be at work every day and do my job much better,” says Julie Harrison, Regina, SK.

Day-Light is the most versatile bright light system on the market today. It can be used with the detachable legs, or with the built-in stand, or hung on the wall to create a light window in a dark room. Compact, it fits conveniently in a carry-on when traveling. More than that, it complies with the 20-years of research that supports the established light therapy standards that are synonymous with Day-Light technology.

“I like that the Day-Light is compact and versatile. Not only that but it is both functional as a work light and therapeutic,” says Dr. Lyn MacBeath, Vancouver, BC.

The redesigned Day-Light was announced at MedTrade Fall 2003, but it was not ready for distribution at that time. It subsequently enjoyed a short, but successful season of sales. This year, production is scheduled to triple based on consumer response to the new design.

Day-Lights are innovative light therapy systems – not medical devices. We recommend that you consult a physician before undertaking a bright light therapy regimen.

Make Sure Your Cover Strikes the Right Chord This Summer, Says Confused. com

Rocking the summer away at Reading or Glastonbury, is an annual highlight for many UK festival goers, but adopting lax attitudes when it comes to protecting valuable belongings could be extremely costly, says Confused. com - the UK's leading insurance price comparison service.

Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) June 27, 2008

Rocking the summer away at Reading or Glastonbury, is an annual highlight for many UK festival goers, but adopting lax attitudes when it comes to protecting valuable belongings could be extremely costly, says Confused. com - the UK's leading insurance price comparison service.

With opportunistic thieves being sure to take advantage of unmanned tents and relaxed attitudes, it is imperative to check that valuable items such as jewellery, cameras, mobile phones, and even mp3 players are adequately insured to cover loss and damage.

The majority of home insurance (http://www. confused. com/) policies will allow for expensive items to be taken away from the home and still be covered, up to a certain value. However, if items are stolen because they have not been secured, then insurance will automatically become invalid. In addition, claiming on policies will push up home insurance premiums. Being vigilant is the key to avoiding spiralling insurance costs.

Simon Lamble, product director of Confused. com, comments:

"It is vital that the prospect of jiving along to Jay-Z, cavorting with the Kaiser Chiefs or moshing with Metallica at this year's festivals, does not overshadow the importance of searching for suitable insurance to cover your belongings. Although levels of theft have been reported to be on the decline at summer festivals, the mix of alcohol, sun and music, makes it all too easy for revellers to forget to keep an eye on valuable possessions. Using facilities on offer such as lockers, or making sure you keep belongings on you or in a safe place, is highly recommended in order that your festival does not become a washout.

"Yet, in addition to keeping your belongings safe, planning ahead and shopping around for the right deal, is the best way to make sure that your home insurance (http://www. confused. com/) cover hits the right note this summer. It is important to double-check policy terms and conditions to ensure that your cover is as comprehensive as possible, by shopping around for the right deal."
