The scientific formula for a good night’s sleep is deeply embedded in your circadian rhythm. Think of it as your body’s 24-hour clock that ebbs and flows throughout the day to decide when you feel sleepy and awake. Poor sleep happens when there is a misalignment of your circadian rhythm and your sleep schedule, causing difficulties falling asleep and waking up. Lumos technology uses short light pulses to shift your circadian clock back into alignment.
Circadian rhythms are natural physical, mental, and behavioral oscillations that follow a 24-hour cycle. These natural processes exist in most living organisms and respond primarily to light and darkness.
Poor sleep occurs when one’s circadian rhythm and sleep schedule are misaligned. For example, traveling to a different time zone or working night shifts result in drastic changes to sleep schedule that leave one’s circadian rhythms in the dust.
Circadian rhythm misalignment causes:
Difficulties falling asleep and waking up and/or fragmented sleep
Impaired physical and cognitive functions
Increased risks for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer
The Lumos Sleep System uses patented light technology designed to shift your circadian clock back into alignment. Our goal is for you to enjoy restorative sleep and perform at your peak, regardless of where you are or when you work.

Circadian rhythm is more than sleep
Our body goes through natural cycles of physical, mental, and behavior changes in a 24-hour cycle. The master circadian
clock in the brain sets the timing for many circadian rhythms that regulate various processes in our body.
