Intelligent lighting on exhibit

May 17th, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

Lighting technologies can be considered mundane in many ways but light and its properties find applications in products much more varied than lamps and luminaires. Take the Blue touch pain relief patch for instance, a new product from Philips, designed to offer non-invasive on-demand pain relief for people with (mild to moderate chronic) muscular back pain in a discrete, wearable device. It uses special blue LEDlight to induce production of nitric oxide (NO) in the skin, which is proven to trigger a number of protective and preventive processes in the body. It relaxes muscles through a mechanism centered on improved blood circulation, which results in pain relief. Another topic of interest is replacing the use of battery packs with energy harvesting.  These topics and many more were discussed at the IDTechEx co-located conferences in Berlin on the 17th and 18th of April. Printed Electronics Europe, Energy Harvesting & Storage  and Wireless Sensor Networks & RTLS alongside another 6 co-located events on emerging electronics, shed light on many topics.
