BalancedCare™ by Axis Lighting featuring BIOS SkyBlue® Circadian Technology was Created with the Healthcare Staff and Patients In Mind

 

 

Human Centric Innovator (HCL) BIOS Lighting and high-performance LED luminaire manufacturer Axis Lighting announce the launch of the BalancedCare healthcare lighting family of luminaires, featuring optional, integrated, BIOS SkyBlue technology.

This partnership creates the lighting industry’s most comprehensive ambient healthcare luminaire offering that combines sleek architectural forms, precision optics, simple controls, and state-of-the-art SkyBlue Circadian technology.

“As a leader in circadian and health lighting, BIOS is excited to provide our SkyBlue lighting solution to AXIS Lighting for their BalancedCare healthcare fixtures,”said Sean Tegart, CEO and President of BIOS Lighting. “By combining BIOS’ biologically driven light engine with AXIS’ BeWell light guide technology, we are able to offer best in class healthcare lighting without compromising visual comfort, functionality or timeless design.”

BIOS, using science originated at NASA, created its SkyBlue technology which engages with a non-visual photoreceptor in the eye. During the day, SkyBlue strengthens circadian rhythm, increases alertness, improves focus, and boosts moods. In the evening, SkyBlue creates a warmer atmosphere that promotes natural melatonin production leading to a better night’s sleep.

“We’re thrilled to partner with BIOS,” said Colette Fleming, Director of Healthcare, Axis Lighting. “The SkyBlue solution just makes sense in the healthcare environment, especially in patient rooms, corridors, and nurses’ stations, where you want to promote circadian entrainment for the well-being of both the patient and the shift-working caretakers. It’s also ideal because BIOS will work with any 0-10V dimming interface, so it’s easy to integrate into a healthcare facility’s 24-hour building controls system.”
