The Litebook® Elite™ is the new generation of light therapy, the result of years of research and development in hand-held light therapy devices. The Elite™ features a custom lens and diffusion system which, combined with the high-performance white LEDs that all Litebook products are known for, produces a uniform field of bright yet soothing light. Additional innovative features for the Elite™ include a multiple-setting timer (15-30-45-60 minutes) and a long-lasting built-in rechargeable lithium-ION battery with a charge indicator – all of this in a compact, sleek design which fits into your lifestyle. When used every day, The Litebook® Elite™ will improve your mood, increase your energy level and restore your sleep patterns. Most people notice results within 30 days - often sooner.
Bright light is something our body craves, and when we are exposed to bright light first thing in the morning, we feel more alert and optimistic all day long. That's why for most people we recommend using your Litebook® as early as possible upon awakening - especially during the shorter, darker days of winter when your body needs it most. All Litebook® products deliver this natural solution drug-free, virtually side-effect free and completely safely - with no harmful UV. Experience the proven beneficial light wavelengths of Litebook® products, which have helped tens of thousands of people in 50+ countries win their battle with problems ranging from fatigue and low mood to poor sleep and carbohydrate cravings...all with only 15-30 minutes of use per day! We are proud to offer the best quality LED light therapy products backed by our industry-leading 2 year warranty and 60 day money-back guarantee.
Why Is The Litebook® Superior To Traditional Light Boxes?
50% less usage time needed
Feature-rich compact design
Completely portable (built-in rechargeable battery)
Use on airliners and in motor vehicles
Unlike traditional florescent light boxes, which are large and clunky in design, Litebook® light therapy products are extremely compact, lightweight yet durable and aesthetically pleasing. The Litebook® Elite™ features several innovative elements: built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery with charge indicator for true portability, usage timer (4 settings) and international power adapter for use worldwide.
Most significantly, customers report their usage time with The Litebook® is typically far shorter than with fluorescent light boxes (up to 50% less), due to Litebook™s white LEDs that peak in the optimal spectral wavelengths identical to sunlight.
Directions for use:
Typical usage time is 15-30 minutes a day. Regular daily usage is recommended.
Optimally, The Litebook® Elite™ should be used first thing in the morning, as early as possible upon awakening.
For some people, especially seniors, who fall asleep earlier than they’d like and wake up either too often or too early, we recommend using your Litebook Elite in the early evening to tell your body that you’re not ready to go to sleep. This will help you sleep through the night and awaken at your preferred time.
The Litebook® Elite™ should be positioned approximately 12-24 inches (30-60 cm) from your face, and should be offset slightly from center to reduce glare (SEE DIAGRAM)
The Litebook® Elite’s light beam must be directed at your eyes, and your eyes must be open to achieve benefit.
Typically, you will recognize when you've received sufficient light - most often by feeling of heightened alertness, energy, and/or mood.
Refer to the diagram for proper positioning of The Litebook® Elite™.
USE ONLY AS DIRECTED.
The Litebook® emits an intense beam of white light. DO NOT STARE DIRECTLY AT THE LIGHT SOURCE. It is NOT harmful to glance at the light for a few seconds at a time.
We encourage use of The Litebook® while engaged in other activities, such as reading, eating, applying makeup, or working at a computer or desk. However, take care that The Litebook® is NOT brought into contact with water or heat-producing appliances, as they may damage The Litebook®, and may pose possible fire hazards.
If you have a history of eye disease including, but not limited to, macular degeneration, have undergone corrective laser eye surgery in the past 30 days, or if you are currently taking medications including certain antibiotics which render you photosensitive (extremely sensitive to light), consult with your ophthalmologist or health care provider before using this product.
Consult a medical professional before using The Litebook® if you have been diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder, depression, Bipolar Disorder, mood or sleep disorders or if you are taking medication for the treatment of depression and/or mood disorders (including but not limited to: fluoxetine (Prozac®), fluvoxamine (Luvox®), paroxetine (Paxil®), sertraline (Zoloft®), venlafaxine (Effexor®), nefazodone (Serzone®), Wellbutrin® and Zyban®). Light therapy may change the effect of these kinds of medications.
Occasional mild side-effects may occur which usually resolve after a few days of use, including headaches or a 'stinging' sensation in the eyes. If these or any other adverse effects not listed, do not resolve after three days, discontinue use of The Litebook® and consult your health care provider. On very rare occasions and usually only with over-use, less than 1% of users may experience mania (periods of abnormally and persistently elevated, expansive or irritated mood). If this occurs, stop using The Litebook immediately.
How many LUX does The Litebook® provide?
A growing body of research demonstrates that the effectiveness of light therapy is less dependent on the intensity (LUX) of the light source than it is on the wavelength of the light. Numerous research reports on the same peak wavelengths of light emitted by The Litebook® Elite™ conclude that it is these wavelengths of light that are the ‘action spectrum’ for light therapy. In other words, these wavelengths of light are responsible for increasing energy, improving mood, and restoring sleep patterns. Since the white LEDs in all Litebook® products produce light with peaks in the most effective wavelengths, most users find that they need LESS time (typically 15-30 minutes/day) with Litebook® products than they did with larger 10,000 lux light boxes. Thus, while we no longer refer to the ‘lux’ of our products, we are comfortable stating that The Litebook® Elite™ emits light that is the equivalent to 10,000 lux at 24 inches.
Can I use The Litebook® in my vehicle?
The Litebook® operates on both AC or DC power, permitting use in a vehicle (through the built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery or an optional auto power adapter). However, due to the intensity of the light source, it is NOT be used by the driver while operating a vehicle, especially at night (night vision is adversely affected by bright light).
The Litebook® may be used safely by the driver ONLY while the vehicle is parked or stationary, provided the user waits several minutes prior to operating the vehicle.
Passengers may enjoy a light session while the vehicle is in motion. Because The Litebook® Elite™ is designed as a personal light device, this should not interfere with the safe operation of a vehicle.
Is light therapy covered by my insurance or health care provider?
Light therapy is recommended by healthcare professionals for combating SAD and other body-clock disruptions in the U.S. and Canada, as well as northern Europe and elsewhere. Patients in the Canada, U.S. and some other countries are able to obtain a prescription for light therapy from a physician, and increasingly, receive reimbursement from insurance companies for the purchase of a light therapy device. (Consult your insurance carrier for possible coverage.)
