SAD phototherapy lamp Fotovita FV-10 S
FOTOVITA is a medical device for treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder symptoms. It was designed
and tested in cooperation with the scientists from Ludwik Rydygier Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz
Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń Poland.
FOTOVITA lamps have been helping and bringing relief to their users for over 15 years.
The illuminance of white light emitted by FOTOVITA SAD lamps can be characterized as similar
to the sunlight. It has a particular effect on the human brain, specifically on pineal gland, which
is responsible for production of melatonin. People suffer from its overproduction during autumn-winter
season, due to the lack of sunlight. The FOTOVITA light reaches the brain through the eyes.
Its physical properties help stimulate the pineal gland what results in restoring the harmony
of sleep–wake cycle (Circadian rhythm). The process is entirely safe and has been the subject
of numerous scientific researches and dissertations all over the world.
