Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for Aug. 21, 2023. Our featured story in this edition is compelling to me not solely for its implementation of a personalized circadian lighting approach in a residential care home, but also because the teams involved have utilized caregiver feedback to develop the user interface. They plan to explore user experience and compliance alongside analyzing the impact of spectrally tuning and varying light intensity levels on residents.

We also have updates on UV-based water disinfection and visible-lightbased area disinfection for you below, as well as an important call to action from global policy representatives regarding the phase-out of mercury-containing lamps. Although many locales have specific timelines to cease manufacturing of certain fluorescent products, global initiatives still need support from industry stakeholders to drive LED adoption and provide safe disposal for lamps to maintain a healthy environment for all.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
