Light therapy tools are must have items for many patients suffering from depression and SAD and the Carex Day-Light Classic Plus SAD Light Therapy Lamp is out to show that they are about health benefits and impact rather than pretty light fixtures.
The design of this lamp doesn’t really look like much at first. It doesn’t have the interesting shapes and features of some other designs for the home, with its flat square light and basic stand. But it is said to be based on a model used by university researchers and should be a highly effective tool.
What benefits have buyers enjoyed when trying out this Carex Day-Light Classic Lamp for their own home light therapy sessions?
The light appears to have everything going for it in terms of power and safety, with the 10,000 lux light emitted from a glare-free white bulb and a UV blocker that eliminates most of these harmful rays. It may sound simplistic but buyers appreciate just how much light they are getting from this one lamp and can really see a difference.
What makes it even more helpful is that there are two light settings – ‘therapy’ and ‘task’ – that highlight the multifunctional nature of this Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Bright Light Therapy Lamp further.
This is a great task light for ongoing use on winter days at lower lux levels but there is the higher intensity for morning sessions of white light to really help users get going in the morning and improve their mood.
The result of this design is relief from the symptoms of a number of disorders – SAD is obviously a key reason why consumers will buy this lamp but it also promises to help with Circadian sleep disorders and jet lag.
There are lots of positive reports from users about the impact on SAD and depression, with many buyers happily using this in daily sessions in order to improve their energy levels and mood, and the majority of sufferers can continue with their day in a productive manner.
What are the disadvantages in choosing this Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Light Therapy Lamp?
The size of the lamp and the shape of the stand can have their problems because they limit the areas in which the light can be used – it will fit nicely on a large table or desk but not on a bedside table or a more cramped work area.
What is interesting is that this is perhaps the biggest problem with this product. Some have noted a burning smell when it gets too hot that can be off-putting – too much so for some buyers that returned it – but there is little else mentioned in criticism of the design.
It is all about impact and health with this lamp rather than looks and there have been many happy buyers seeing the potential in this model for a range of symptoms. You do need to have the space for this Carex SAD light , and a tolerance of odd smells, but it is worth it for the amount of high quality light that is produced and he impact it can have on mental and physical health.
