Glo is the world’s first light therapy umbrella device. It is the result of a search to find an effective way to create awareness of mental illness. From this point it developed into a product that treats Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).


Extensive research has shown that the most effective form of treatment for SAD is light therapy. Therefore Glo combines the practicality of an umbrella with the health benefits of light therapy.
