Axis Lighting Launches BalancedCare™ Product Lines and Brand

BalancedCare by Axis Lighting is a new brand focusing on healthcare facility lighting, and features a comprehensive and complementary family of luminaires. Mindful of both style and function, and taking into account the latest LED chip design, BalancedCare luminaires are engineered to meet all of the requirements of today's complex healthcare environments. Designed for patient rooms, bathrooms, corridors, nurses' stations and common areas, these luminaires provide lighting for wellness without trade-offs.

"So often, healthcare lighting is either functional with an institutional appearance or extremely decorative while ignoring cleanability and other critical standards," commented Colette Fleming, BalancedCare director of healthcare. "Now, lighting designers don't need to compromise."

BalancedCare luminaires provide solutions that not only function properly, but also provide beautiful and timeless designs.

Functional Optics and Visual Comfort

BalancedCare offers patent-pending BeWell™ performance optics for both visual comfort and functionality. A departure from traditional luminaires with unsightly segmented compartments or indirect baskets, BeWell light guide technology provides multiple precise distribution options to deliver the many layers of light required in healthcare environments. The luminaires also provide glare-free comfortable lighting that supports the visual tasks of staff while enhancing patients' overall wellbeing.

Intelligent Technologies

BalancedCare is an intuitive 'controls-agnostic' collection with intelligent patient bed control compatibility, and spectral programmability provided by tunable white and BIOS SkyBlue® technologies. BalancedCare partners with industry-recognized controls suppliers for integration into any building automation system.

Infection Control and Performance

BalancedCare products are constructed of materials and finishes that withstand hospital cleaning protocols, standing up to the most stringent infection control requirements. They meet functional and application-specific industry listings such as UL, ADA, Ingress Protection and National Sanitation Foundation standards.

Ease of Maintenance

Room-side access to drivers and components facilitates maintenance efforts, reduces costs, and prolongs sustainability of luminaire systems.

Architectural Form

BalancedCare luminaires provide timeless, stylized forms concealing sophisticated technologies that complement and enhance today's architecture. Sleek, low profile styles replace mundane, institutional looks of the past and elevate healthcare lighting design to today's standards.


With a focus on patient and staff wellness, this thoughtfully configured lighting balances both visual and circadian needs, as well as links to nature, and promotes healing outcomes. BeWell provides better visual acuity for tasks, and softer, healing visual comfort in the space.

"Years of comprehensive research and development, including consulting designers and healthcare personnel, have resulted in this industry-changing family of luminaires. We're thrilled to bring this thoughtful, modern collection to market," added Fleming.
