The Sun Box CSB-BL is a highly effective new light box that uses blue LED lamps to treat the symptoms associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Blue light is an excellent alternative for people who are too sensitive for the standard 10,000 LUX white light. Research has proven that the specific blue wavelength that is emitted from this box is the portion of the spectrum that is the most effective in treating SAD. By using LED's, we reduce the unit's size and weight to just 5 ½" x 9" x 1 ¼" and 1 ½ lbs. It easily fits on a desk, table, or countertop and is equipped with a folding stand, UV shield, on/off switch and a 6 ft. cord. Uses only 9 watts of power.
Blue light also has a special ability to reset the biological clock. Studies by Mariana Figueiro, assistant professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lighting Research Center, and others indicate "blue light boxes" are far more effective than full-spectrum sunlight boxes of equal intensity at fighting seasonal affective disorder, commonly known as winter blues. Studies at Harvard Medical School in Boston and the Lighting Research Center also indicate that a dose of blue light, depending on when it is given can increase alertness or help fight insomnia. In particular, Figueiro's studies show that exposure to blue light in the evening makes Alzheimer's patients more likely to sleep through the night.

When the blues keep you awake
Blue light can reset your biological rhythms

Your eyes do more than see.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School demonstrated this by showing that your eyes are part of a light reception system that can keep you alert when sleep starts to fog your brain. When the researchers exposed people to blue light at night, this system immediately increased their alertness and performance on tests.
"These findings add to a growing body of evidence that a novel light reception system exists in the human eye in addition to sight," says Steven Lockley, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and a researcher in sleep medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. "Men and women exposed to blue light sustained a high level of alertness during the night when people feel most sleepy. These results suggest that light may be a powerful countermeasure for the negative effects of fatigue for people who work or study at night."
It's well known that white light can do the same. Long-distance travelers and shift workers sit in front of commercial light boxes that shift their natural clocks with glaring white light, hyping their attention to daylight levels. Apparently, blue light can do this more effectively.
It is even superior to green light, to which human vision is most sensitive. Sleepy people bathed in blue light for six and a half hours performed better than those lit by an equal amount of green light. They consistently rated themselves as less sleepy, showed quicker reaction times, and had fewer lapses of attention than those exposed to green light.
