Our mission is to help those peoples, around the world, who are deprived of Sunlight, regain their « joie de vivre » - we do this by innovation in the science and art of creating artificial Light.


Luminette, the alternative light therapy

The inventors took a simple observation as their starting point : light therapy boxes are effective but inconvenient. They are static and soon end up in the attic.

They therefore tried to develop a light therapy device that can be used on-the-move, allowing users to carry out their normal activities without losing a second of light. The device had to be just as effective but also more convenient !

Luminette came out in 2006 after 4 years of research at the University of Liege (Belgium). It is the result of collaboration between two fields of research : sleep medicine and optical physics.
