Effects of near-infrared light on humans

We are proud to announce that today, November 18th, 2020, Chrono@Work, in collaboration with the department of Chronobiology at the University of Groningen, received the approval of the ethical committee to perform the first-ever long-term study on the effects of pulsed near-infrared (NIR) light on wellbeing and health in humans. The study is sponsored by Seaborough Life Sciences. The protocol is a clinical trial (NCT NL8800) in which we will investigate the effects of long-term exposure to near-infrared (NIR) on humans, which will take place during the upcoming winter months.

We are currently looking for 40 healthy human participants, suffering from a bit of sleep deficit, and willing to test the effect of such long term (4 weeks) “sunlight-like” exposures of NIR on their mood, wellbeing, mental performance, sleep quality and immune system. If you are living in the area of Groningen or Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and interested to participate, please send an e-mail to lichtstudie@chronoatwork.com. Data collection will run from December 2020 – June 2021. You will receive more information, informed consent, and a link to selection questionnaires on demand.
