With near-infrared light we improve your mood, well-being, sleep and immune system.
Seaborough Life Science invents and develops lighting technologies to improve people’s well-being and health. We develop materials to enable novel light therapies to treat skin diseases and we conduct groundbreaking long-term research in the field of photobiomodulation.
Light is a vital source for life and for human health and well-being, just like food, water and air. The human body – and in particular the skin and the eyes – interacts with light in many different ways. Sunlight is essential for vitamin D3 generation in the skin, and is associated with many health aspects like blood pressure and bone strength. Light also strongly influences our circadian rhythm, which helps us sleep, and helps us recover well, both physically and mentally.
Light therapy can be used to treat skin disorders, such as psoriasis, acne, eczema and neonatal jaundice. Light can also be used effectively to treat and prevent seasonal affective disorder, and potentially other psychiatric disorders too.
Our currently running ground-breaking research program is focused on the photobiomodulation effect. Many scientists have already reported the pain reducing and accelerated wound healing effects of red and near-infrared light, which is thought to originate from activation of the mitochondria in human (skin) cells. Our hypothesis goes beyond local effects on exposed skin, as we are investigating many more health, performance, and well-being indicators in our current clinical trial.
With a proven hypothesis of systemic photobiomodulation, we develop the technological solutions to include the right wavelengths and intensity in everyday products, to deliver great health effects to people spending most of their time indoors. Our highly skilled engineers will make sure we will develop the most energy efficient and sustainable products possible.
Building on the expertise of our staff and (scientific) collaborators, Seaborough is constantly looking for new technologies in the field of lighting that contribute to human health and well-being.
