Science of Wellness

The Science of Light and Wellness.

BIOS creates visually comfortable lighting with industry-leading circadian impact.

BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology brings the benefits of blue skies inside. BIOS SkyBlue is the only spectrally optimized circadian solution to pinpoint the region that drives wellness benefits including: increased alertness, enhanced productivity, better mood, and better sleep through proper circadian entrainment.

BIOS Biological Static Solutions

BIOS Biological Static LED Light Engines are designed for daytime applications. BIOS Static Biological LED features key BIOS SkyBlue™ (490nm) for maximum daytime circadian impact. BIOS Static Biological LED Light Engines are available in 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K. Lighting controls with BIOS Static Biological LED Light Engines are easy — simply switch the lights on/off or the lights can be dimmed using a single-channel constant current (CC) LED driver with any standard dimming interface.

Applications

  • Spaces occupied primarily during the daytime ~7am – 7pm.
  • K-12 Schools / Higher Education
  • Offices
  • Daytime Adult Care Facilities
  • Medical Offices
ALW Lighting

BIOS Biological Dynamic Solutions

BIOS Biological Dynamic LED Light Engines are designed to transition from daytime to evening. The daytime CCT includes full BIOS SkyBlue™ (490nm) for maximum daytime circadian impact, the evening spectrum removes BIOS SkyBlue™ (490nm) altogether, providing a minimal circadian stimulus in the evening.

BIOS Biological Dynamic Light Engines are available in 3000K (dim to 2700K evening spectrum), 3500K (dim to 3000K evening spectrum), and 4000K (dim to 3500K evening spectrum). Simply dim the lights in the evening to remove the daytime SkyBlue wavelengths (490nm) and convert your lights from day mode to night mode. BIOS Dynamic Biological Light Engines must be paired with the BIOS Bio-Dimming™ Module which allows intensity and spectrum to be controlled together, via a single channel. The Bio-Dimming Module wires directly to a constant current (CC) LED driver and BIOS Dynamic Biological Light Engines interface with any standard dimming protocol (0-10V, ELV, DMX, Wireless).

Applications

  • Spaces occupied overnight (~ after 7pm and before 7am)
  • 24-hour spaces
  • Shiftwork
  • Hospitals
  • Senior Living, Memory Care, Alzheimer’s + Dementia, and Assisted Living
  • Higher Education, including student and staff Areas occupied after 7pm
  • Workplace, including areas occupied after 7pm 

BIOS Biological Tunable White

For single-channel control, BIOS Biological Tunable Light Engines must be paired with the BIOS Bio-Dimming Module which allows intensity and spectrum to be controlled together, via a single channel. Simply dim the lights in the evening to remove the daytime SkyBlue wavelengths (490nm) and convert your lights from day mode to night mode. BIOS Biological Tunable Light Engines with single-channel control can be used with standard dimming interfaces/protocols (0-10V, ELV, DMX, Wireless). 

For two-channel control, BIOS Biological Tunable Light Engines do not use a BIOS Bio-Dimming Module. In two-channel applications, intensity and spectrum are controlled independently. BIOS Biological Tunable Light Engines with two-channel control can be used with standard 2-channel LED drivers and standard dimming interfaces/protocols (0-10V, ELV, DMX, Wireless). 

BIOS Bio-Dimming™ Module

Our industry-disrupting technology is compatible with standard dimming and control protocols, easy and inexpensive to install, and available through a range of our Illuminated Partners to suit your project’s needs and design.

SkyBlue™ Technology

Although the science and engineering are complicated, getting better light doesn’t have to be. Our SkyBlue™ Technology uses visual, melanopic, and skin pathways to increase performance, safety, alertness, and concentration in interior buildings. All without compromising design or visual comfort.
Naturalizing Interior Light
SkyBlue™ technology brings natural lighting indoors, providing the wavelengths of the sun that your body needs for circadian entrainment and overall wellbeing.

Skin-based Pathways

Far-red lighting helps identify illnesses via cyanosis observation.


Melanopic Pathways

When photoreceptors in the eyes receive 490 nanometers, they communicate to the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (the body’s clock) that it is daytime, and biological responses follow, such as increased energy and avoidance of melatonin release.


Visual Pathways
Advanced technology merges visual acuity and comfort with high biological impact, so you don’t have to compromise. The color output of SkyBlue™ psychologically indicates daytime without stressing visual receptors.

Lighting that can Regulate Circadian Rhythms in Space

Despite seeing 16 sunrises a day, this lighting technology can successfully regulate an astronaut’s circadian rhythm to 24 hours.

We’re proud to say that the Subject Matter Expert for NASA’s International Space Station lighting system now leads our team — and he’s bringing space technology to earth.

Because your lighting should work with your biology, not against it.

Backed by Mother Nature and Science

Light sends signals to the body, and they can be received either through your eyes or skin. These signals create biological responses, many associated with your body’s internal clock. They may impact your mood, hormone production, energy levels, alertness, fatigue, and more. Bios Wellness Lighting is expertly designed to generate psychological and biological responses, offering the most comprehensive approach to biological wellness lighting.

Our unique incorporation of red peaks for skin-based pathways, 490 nanometers to generate melanopic responses, and color (CCT) specificity used to initiate psychological associations with time changes and respective circadian phases create a holistic approach to providing the best wellness lighting available (excluding the sun).
