GoodLux Technology Announces Partnership with The SunBox Company
Boston, Mass., April 28, 2015 – GoodLux Technology, the provider of the SunSprite light therapy engagement solution for the treatment of depression, and The SunBox Company, a manufacturer of white light therapy lamps, announced today a co-marketing partnership providing patients and providers with the SunSprite/SunBox bundle. The bundle, consisting of the SunSprite light monitor and any SunBox product provides a one-stop solution for patients using bright light therapy for depression, winter blues or SAD.
With the bundle, clinicians can now prescribe the right dose of bright light therapy and know that their patients are adhering, leading to a triple-aim effect of better patient experience, improved population health and reduced cost.
“Good quality light boxes are critical for bright light therapy to work, especially for northern geographies or people who do not spend much time outdoors,” said Ed Likovich, CEO of GoodLux Technology. “We’re excited to partner with the original US manufacturer to deliver an effective bright light therapy solution that will change lives.”
“This is the best of technology in bright light therapy. By reviewing tangible, historic data about collected bright light, the SunSprite/SunBox bundle will empower users to know exactly how to use their lamps and obtain the clinically-proven amount of light needed in their self-care of depression, sleep disorders, or SAD,” said Neal Owens, president of The SunBox Company.
