The sun’s light and warmth are not just enjoyable, research indicates that we need a certain amount of sunlight to stay healthy. Just 20 minutes of sun exposure can:
The Suntech Sunlight Simulator is designed to emit low UV artificial sunlight so it’s safe to use, does not impart a tan and requires no sunscreen. The unique technology is backed by 30 years’ experience of sunlight simulation evolving out of the auto industry, where it was used for tolerance-testing of materials.
A small study in Swedish senior care homes demonstrated Suntech’s positive effects on mood among elderly residents. Staff in these facilities were also reportedly healthier and had more energy to devote to their care and work. Crystal Paulitzki, General Manager for FlagHouse Canada elaborated: “We often hear too much sunlight can be harmful to your skin and that is a fact. However, healthcare professionals also tell us the right balance can offer benefits, like helping to elevate mood or reduce depression. This is especially important for individuals who have limited exposure to sun due to health or conditions that inhibit them from spending time outdoors, and these are the very people FlagHouse serves.”
Paulitzki continued, “Suntech has broad application across a multitude of settings, including senior residences, care homes and adult day programs, as well as indoor pools, hotels and other recreational venues. It will also provide an added enhancement to the calming and joyful effects of Snoezelen MSEs and other sensory spaces.” She concluded, “Suntech may also be the perfect answer for long, dark Canadian winters”.
