The Helios system is an automatic lighting system designed to help the elderly live a healthier life through healthier lighting. According to experts, the two major health problems facing the elderly today are falls and bad quality of sleep. The products required for the system are a wall sconce, night light and a system-specific light switch. To address these two problems, a dual-stage approach is required. First, a night lighting system utilizing motion sensors allows seniors to move around at night without having to turn on the bright primary lights. Second, a series of daytime lighting therapies helps readjust the body’s clock so that seniors can get to sleep at a healthier time and sleep through the night more comfortably and soundly.
