Lumie and The SAD Lightbox Company

Based just outside Cambridge, UK, Lumie has been researching, designing and developing light therapy products for over 25 years. Lumie lights treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and winter blues; boost mood and energy levels; improve sleep and waking; optimise sports performance; treat jet lag and acne. Our first Bodyclock dawn simulator – an alarm that wakes you up with increasing levels of light – was the world’s first wake-up light and brought light therapy into the mainstream. We also designed and developed Lumie Clear, a unique hand held device that uses combined blue and red light therapy to treat mild to moderate acne.


As Europe’s leading light therapy specialist with the broadest range of products in Europe, we have strong connections within the scientific community. Lumie is currently involved with research at Cambridge University and an EU project investigating the link between circadian rhythms and diabetes. We’re also a member of the Society for Light Treatment and Biological Rhythms (SLTBR), an international group devoted to promoting research and knowledge about the biological effects of light.


Lumie is certified to the ISO 13485 medical device standard and our products are certified to the Medical Devices Directive (EC 93/42) which means they’re rigorously tested to European health and safe standards and must be backed up with published scientific evidence. The distance and lux level (the standard measure of brightness received) specifications for our lights are all independently verified.


We supply to the NHS on an occasional basis and our lights are recommended by SADA, the UK’s only registered charity dedicated to SAD. Our lights are also enhancing the study environment at Cambridge University Library and we are proud to be a long-standing official supplier to the British Swimming team.


Two of our wake-up lights, Luxe and Active, provide white noise as an option. If you are trying to sleep in a noisy environment or during the day, white noise helps to muffle other sounds, like traffic or people talking.


In the UK our products are available through as well as major retailers including amazon, John Lewis and Boots. We also have an expanding network of distributors across Europe and in North America. For consumers buying through we provide a 45-day trial period on all products and a dedicated customer careline.
