Researchers at the University of California, Davis California Lighting Technology Center in collaboration with the Center for Mind and Brain have developed a novel lighting technology approach for stress recovery and stress mitigation. This technology approach involves the use of discrete spectra that can be introduced to humans through either automated or user-based control system to assist in stress recovery in medical and health care environments. The research involves developing technologies that allow for the appropriate intervention inside medical and health care environments for stress mitigation with patients undergoing invasive, stressful health procedures. Examples of health care environments include imaging spaces for MRI and CT scanning, infusion spaces for chemotherapy, preop surgery clinics, and related medical environments. Additionally, there are possible consumer-grade lighting application opportunities in commercial and residential buildings for stress mitigation.
