Window Therapist / Light Therapy

Window Therapist

As people stay and work indoors, they are less exposed to sunlight which is a vital source for human life. This phenomenon is easily found especially in northern countries (up to 20%) causing disorders such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or depression.
Window Therapist is a light therpy system integrated in a window frame that gives life to those who are suffering from disorders. The solar-powered system generates energy from sunlight and produces bright LED lights inside the room early in the morning or evening to treat depression and vitalize user. Extra energy may power USBs and electrical outlets as an additional function.
