Re-Timer is a wearable light therapy device for Winter Blues.
Winter Blues is a low-mood experienced primarily during the winter months. Symptoms can include loss of energy, weight gain and difficulty concentrating.
Researchers from Flinders University state that Winter Blues is the result of a mis-timed circadian rhythm. Their research shows that bright light visual stimulation (light which enters the eyes), can change timing of the sleep-wake rhythm. Bright light therapy has been used to treat the range of conditions caused by a mis-timed body clock including winter blues.
Re-Timer is lightweight and portable, providing you the benefits of bright light with minimal interruption to your life.
How to use Re-Timer?
Simply wear Re-Timer for 30 minutes per day in the morning to help alleviate symptoms of winter blues such as low energy.
Re-Timer also helps to keep your circadian rhythm in check so that you can sleep and wake at the right times for your lifestyle.
When wearing Re-Timer your eyes must be open, to ensure that you receive the benefits of light therapy.
Science of Re-Timer
Re-Timer is the only portable light therapy device which emits a patented green light proven to be superior for treating winter blues.
A significant body of research has compared the efficacy of different wavelengths to treat winter blues. Green light provides a treatment effect superior to that of red light and similar to that seen in previous studies with white light. (Oren, Brainard et al. 1991)
Furthermore, our eyes have a lens that becomes cloudy and yellows as we age. This clouding restricts blue light entering the eye. Since most white light devices rely on blue wavelengths to reduce winter blues symptoms, green light is considered to be a superior treatment option in older populations.
Benefits of Re-Timer
Light devices vary in terms of the colour of light emitted, treatment duration, design, size and price.
Typically, light boxes emit a white or blue light at a high brightness level – up to 10,000 lux.
To receive treatment from light boxes you are required to sit in front of the device for up to 60 minutes.
Not all light devices are equal; ensure you do your own research about light therapy devices, to confirm it is the most safe and effective approach for your situation.

Very light. Had a Philips Go Lite for years then needed something portable. This does the trick nicely. Thank you!
Perfect for SAD
Re-Timer has done a great job at improving my mood during winter. I purchased this new product about six months ago when it first arrived on market. I suffer winter blues or SAD for most of the year, not just winter. So I use it alot. And it's great. It's tested for eye safety (unlike most devices on the market). I found this out when I would ask different companies about their testing and Re-Timer was the only one who could verify it was safe and tested. They provide a 30 day return policy which is good for piece of mind
I used it for 1 week. And I must admit, this week when I'm not using it, I seem to be a whole lot more tired in the afternoon and not sleeping so well.
