the science

Chronobiology and Circadian Rhythm
All life on earth, human or animal, operates on 24-hour rhythms. Research on the mechanisms controlling these Circadian rhythms has been awarded with the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2017.

Light Affects Our Body
Our daily intake of sunlight governs our body clock by triggering the suppression of melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone. It controls cell regeneration, hormone levels, or metabolism and determines our sleep and wakefulness.

If our lifestyle is misaligned with our body clock because we work in shifts, travel overseas or do not get enough sunlight, our mental and physical well-being suffers greatly.

Why Blue Light?
Our body clock is set by special receptors in our eyes, responsive only to the blue component of the spectrum. When natural light is unavailable due to season or lifestyle, it can be emulated to keep our bodies in sync with our environment.

Pocket Sky is the smallest and lightest wearable for doing just that. To be worn like glasses, it invites to savour the benefits of biologically active light in style. Being truly mobile, Pocket Sky allows you to power up wherever you are.

The circardian clock affects your wellbeing

experts about us

The Institute for Sleep-Wake-Research has initiated numerous studies with the focus on
sleep and alertness.

Since bright light is one of the strongest “Zeitgeber” to regulate our circadian clock and thereafter our sleep-wake rhythm, the application of light has a wide range of therapeutic properties.

Pocket Sky is a user friendly and easy-to-apply tool for ambulatory light exposure and may be beneficial for stabilizing the sleep-wake rhythm as well as improving wellbeing during periods of low exposure to natural light. Therefore, the ISWF will use Pocket Sky in studies to apply blue light to enhance alertness (e.g. on the road, during nightshift) or as a tool to boost fitness and performance (e.g. for sportive activities).
