Light therapy lamps can be effective for people suffering from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but users have to sit in front of the lamp for lengthy periods… anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
I wanted to create a light therapy hat that can be worn while commuting to work or running errands so that users can be mobile and multi-task while getting treatment. There are a number of hats and visors in the market but they’re pretty cheesy looking…
I had the urban commuter in mind so designed the hat to be mega-stylish plus furry and warm! Plus a winter fur hat made sense since that is the season when light therapy is needed.
