Night shift workers face significantly higher levels of health problems like diabetes and heart disease. As well, the alertness and judgment of night shift workers can often be severely impaired, presenting operational risks. These health problems and impairments can be substantially reduced if the body clocks of workers are aligned to their work schedules through appropriate light exposure.
Lo-LIGHT lamps, which effectively shift the internal body clock at low levels of brightness, are uniquely adaptable for use in the workplace, avoiding problems of glare and signal interference. Using the GreenLIGHT technology, these lamps are comfortable and do not emit the blue light rays that are hazardous to the eye, making them safer than ordinary office fluorescent lighting.
After selecting Sunnex Biotechnologies Lo-LIGHT lamps for a NASA study on alleviating the alertness and performance deficits of astronauts and night shift workers, the Director of Harvard's Sleep Medicine Division confirmed that GreenLIGHT provides the most effective wavelengths for regulating circadian rhythm.
After determining human circadian sensitivity he explained that "the most efficacious specialized light source should have a peak near 500 nm", and that in this study he would be using "new specialized light source for our studies; retrofitting our laboratory with specialized lamps (manufactured by Sunnex Biotechnologies, Winnipeg, MB, Canada) with a peak sensitivity near 500 nm."

Using low-intensity Lo-LIGHT lamps the U.S. Coast Guard
developed a light management protocol to regulate circadian rhythms for CEMS, a night work adaptation program. Working
with the American Waterways Operators (AWO), this program was tested and found effective for countering adverse health
and performance effects of night shift workers. The trials with Lo-LIGHT lamps
were conducted both on Coast Guard Cutters and on commercial vessels.
