EGO, the light for SAD (Winter Blues) Intervention

My design work for the Columbia University's Clinical Chronobiology and Winter Depression Programs under Dr. Michael Terman led to the development of light diffusion systems for Dawn and Dusk Simulation over sleeping and waking subject and then to lightboxes for suppression of melatonin as it seems to relate to winter blues by improvement of sleep and mood especially due to lack of light in the short winter days or lack of light due to the corporate light deprivation in most workspace cubicles. This version of EGO is re-marketed with two special high output 32 Watt 4100K lamps at, owned by the CET group - so a portion of sales goes back into research.
