Verilux HappyLight Liberty Line Now Includes Three Models –an Energy Lamp for Everyone!
INTERNATIONAL HOME AND HOUSEWARES SHOW – March 15, 2014 – Driven by strong consumer response, Verilux, the Healthy-Lighting Company, has extended its popular HappyLight Liberty line of light therapy systems to include three models – with an array of features from which end users can choose to get the energy lamp ideally suited to them.
“We began work on the line of Liberty light therapy systems when we determined light therapy could – and should – be as unique as the individuals who use it,” said Verilux CEO Nicholas Harmon. “Each person has his or her own combination of available time and preferences for light intensity during their sessions. Also important to consider are the energy lamp’s portability and the degree of freedom it affords the user to move around during light therapy sessions. Our Liberty systems offer common benefits, but each offers its own set of features that allow end users to effectively customize their light therapy to meet their particular needs.”
Energy lamps can substitute for natural light for people who experience the “winter blues” when the seasons change and the amount of available daylight diminishes. This lack of light can cause fatigue and lethargy and compromise focus and concentration. The winter blues may also manifest itself with changes in appetite, general unhappiness and lack of energy. It varies from person to person, but generally 30 to 60 minutes a day with an energy lamp can restore a good mood, positive vitality and help people get back to being themselves.
The current Liberty line includes three models: 10K, 7.5K and 5K. The “K” in each name refers to the LUX rating: a measure of the intensity of a light at a given distance from its source.
At 10,000 LUX (considered the highest light level for comfortable light therapy), the 10K is the most powerful light therapy system in the Liberty Series. It’s also long on bells and whistles, including two interchangeable Optix® glare-diffusing lenses – Comfort and High-Energy – and a high/low light intensity switch. Add a removable base and wall-mount feature, and the 10K offers several levels of light intensity and maximum flexibility as to where it can be used – always discreetly with an understated presence. The 10K is available through numerous retailers and at www.verilux.com for $99.95.
The Liberty 7.5K also offers interchangeable Optix® glare-control lenses and a high/low light intensity switch. At 7,500 LUX, it’s a great choice for those looking for an energy lamp that’s powerful but portable: The 7.5K weighs less than two pounds and fits easily into a backpack, briefcase or suitcase. It’s available through numerous retailers and at www.verilux.com for $79.95.
At 5,000 LUX, the Liberty 5K is an energy lamp that boasts fully half the LUX output of energy lamps as much as 10 times its size. It has one Optix glare-control lens and an on-body on/off light switch. Fully portable, it’s a great choice for people who want to have light therapy in multiple locations and/or have time for longer sessions. Also, at $39.95 at numerous retailers and online at www.verilux.com, it’s a highly affordable entrée into the Verilux line of HappyLight Liberty light therapy systems.
To assure optimally comfortable light therapy, Verilux energy lamps feature Natural Spectrum® illumination. This high-Kelvin light better stimulates the eye’s photoreceptors – i.e., rods and cones – so the eye is relaxed and working at maximum efficiency. Natural Spectrum light also stimulates melanopsin, a photoreceptor that helps set the body’s daily cycles and helps restore balance, mood and energy.
The Verilux HappyLight Liberty Series of light therapy systems has grown to three models. From left, the 10K, 7.K, and 5K. Each offers distinct features from which consumers can choose to get the lamp best suited to their individual needs.
