Online PR News – 15-July-2010 – – The BioBrite SunRise Clock was featured on Good Morning America this week in their special segment featuring gadgets which cater to senior citizens. It was cited as the best alarm clock for seniors because of its large buttons, easy programming and its ability to awaken sleepers gradually.
BioBrite SunRise clocks stimulate the effects of a sunrise, slowley increasing light to wake the sleeper. Similarly, they help the user fall asleep to a simulated sunset. Not only is waking up to a stimulated sunrise more pleasant than waking to the loud buzzer of a traditional alarm clock, but recent studies suggest that waking up gradually improves mood, memorry and concentration. Futhermore, the sounds omitted by most traditional alarm clocks can actually stress your heart. As most heart attacks occur in the morning hours, it is extra important for seniors to avoid unnecessary stress while waking up.
The elderly often have circadian sleep disorders which cause them to fall asleep early, wake too early and prevent them from falling back asleep. This is due in part to the fact that many seniors don't get outside very often and are not frequently exposed to natural light, causing their internal circadian rhythmes to become disrupted. BioBrite's dawn stimulator can help them fall asleep and wake naturally, getting their sleep patterns back to a more normal cycle and helping them feel more rested and alert.
In addition to the numerous health benefits of the SunRise clock, there are also several practical reasons that make this product an ideal gadget for seniors. A large time display and easy-to-find buttons make it simple for those with low vision or dexterity issues to operate the clock. Waking to light is especially a great solution for seniors who have hearing problems and can't hear audio alarm clocks. The ability to wake you without loud audio sounds means those sleeping in adjacent rooms won't be disrupted by your waking - perfect for when young grandchildren are visiting!
