HumanCharger is the world's first bright light headset created to help the body reset its natural circadian rhythm for increased mental alertness and improved mood
CAMBRIDGE, MA, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Valkee, a medical device and technology company, makes its official debut in North America with HumanCharger®, the world's first bright light therapy headset.
Scientifically created in 2007, the HumanCharger® is a light therapy device that can be used to help fight the winter blues, increase mental alertness, reduce jet lag and improve overall mood through helping the body re-set its circadian rhythm. To do so, the small electronic device sends a UV-Free blue-enriched white light through LED earbuds to the light-sensitive regions of the brain.
"After a successful market launch and subsequent significant sales in Europe, we are very excited to officially introduce the HumanCharger® to North America," said Nick Ieraci, COO North America. "Approximately 14% of Americans suffer from the winter blues, according to Dr. Norman Rosenthal, and we expect this device will provide great benefits to those who are affected. As well, the HumanCharger® can be used by consumers of all ages, from University students looking to increase mental alertness to shift workers coping with minimal daylight and travellers wanting to reduce the effects of jet lag."
The HumanCharger® retails for approximately US$219 and is very easy to use. With a time commitment of only 12 minutes per day, the bright light from the headset will boost the body's natural serotonin levels resulting in a noticeable increase in performance and productivity during the day.
The HumanCharger® will be officially launched at the 2016 Bulletproof® Biohacking Conference in Pasadena, California on September 23-25, 2016. The device will also be showcased at CES, the global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow in January 2017.
HumanCharger® is available online at Amazon, Brookstone, Walmart, and Target, or by visiting www.humancharger.com
