LEDs Finally Hitting Stride in Supporting Health, Productivity

By allowing tunability of color and intensity, USAI’s Color Select LED technology can match the natural daylight cycle and needs of end users.

LEDs are a digital technology: they rely on semiconductors to emit light, the same tiny computer chips that are used to light many smart phones. But our use of this lighting platform to realize health benefits in interior design hasn’t been very smart.

By adding tunability of color temperature to the efficient, flexible platform already offered by LEDs, manufacturers are now turning a corner in lighting design that has taken hundreds of years to reach.
