The goal of the project is the design, production and verification of the effect of phototherapy aids, created on the basis of unique LED technology with a balanced color spectrum. Devices corresponding to the standard of medical devices are intended for the prevention and support of the treatment of patients with affective disorders, e.g. seasonal depression, bipolar affective disorder, postpartum depression, and many other applications in psychiatric care. Three size variants will be created, from a separate phototherapy chamber to mobile, easily portable elements. This will enable the use of technology during different phases of treatment, according to the current needs of the patient. Verification of the effectiveness of all these tools will be carried out in a study with healthy volunteers and patients with neuropsychiatric diseases.
