Our environment is made up by various factors and creatures, which make incalculable contributions to our happiness and dynamic living. Sunlight is one such blessing of nature, which helps us plan and conduct outdoor activities and provides us with the essential ingredients for our life; such as heat, light and vitamins (made by sunlight). Everyday, sun rises and as per the natural course of action, it has to set in the west at a particular time. When sunlight goes away, some people get panicked in the absence of sunlight. The feeling is named as SAD or seasonal affective disorder which creates a sort of phobia in the patient’s mind that his energy is fading away.

In order to treat the patients, a variety of treatment tactics are employed. However, the most successful one is called as ‘light therapy’. This therapy ignited scientists to invent SAD light produced by SAD lamps. The lamp (also known as the SAD light box) is a specialized item, which is typically designed for medical purposes. These are unlike other ordinary lamps that we use in our household work. There is one very special thing about these lamps, and that is the reality that these lamps are made up of technology which enables them to produce the light, resembling daylight.

In earlier days, they were available in larger shapes and designs; however, with rapid innovation and technological advancement, they are available in various sizes and capacities. Those people who have SAD light boxes with them, they can use them for general purposes, like; for book reading, studying, a writing table etc. However, their core area of usage is medical solutions, and as per research, there are no side affects of using these lamps. An ordinary lamp of this nature produces 10,000 lux light, which is required for the patient and that is designed to pour in such a way, that it resemble the outdoors or sunlight.

These lamps can not only be used alone, but also can be backed up by stands. If you are to judge the capacity of a typical SAD lamp, just imagine that it is a set of 4,000 Kelvin fluorescent bulbs that ultimately produces 10,000 lux of light. There is also another option of two way adoption and lighting in some of the latest models. If properly used, the lamps can be very effective in dealing with SAD problems.

If you look at the typical sizes, it is around 4 x 21 x16 inches and weighs around 6 pounds, which make it portable and easy to take everywhere. In order to purchase the item, you are strongly advised to conduct a market research, you can even do online research. This will enable you to make a wiser decision in terms of pricing, selection of a quality item with the right set of specifications that you actually require. Moreover, some specialized online medical stores also offer lots of discounts and free services if you avail their services.
