Portable Bright Light Therapy for Active Lifestyles
Weighing just over 2lbs, the TRAVelite provides 10,000 lux of light. Standing either vertical or horizontal, it's compact and lightweight design takes less space on a Desktop or Table. It is the only light unit backed by an unlimited five year warranty, providing total assurance for years of trouble-fee operation. The recently redesigned TRAVelite provides even more light output for effective treatments.
Travel Options for SAD or Jet Lag
The TRAVelite is ideal for traveling and fits easily into luggage or a brief case. A Free Travel Case is provided with initial purchase. Many travelers suffer from jet lag (dysrhythmia), occurring when the body clock is not synchronized with an air traveler's new time zone. Studies at Harvard and NASA indicate that the human body clock can be safely shifted up to 12 time zones in a couple of days with precisely timed exposure to a sufficiently bright light.
Excellent Reading and Task Light
The TRAVelite is also an excellent reading and task light and can be used all day long.
