Celliant is a specially formulated technology that is designed to enhance oxygen levels in the body. Products with Celliant have been clinically proven to relieve pain, increase comfort and aid in healing by increasing oxygen levels and helping to regulate body temperature.
Each of these studies successfully demonstrated how Celliant uses Infrared Active Technology to provide subjects with a better night sleep, and more importantly a reduction in chronic muscle pain soreness. It is because of the infrared energy the Celliant is able to absorb, then redistribute throughout the body that this healing process becomes possible. Once this energy is redistributed about four centimetres deep inside the body, it begins to promote an increase in nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide is what helps make more oxygen available in the bloodstream, which causes the body’s cells to function at a higher level of efficiency when it comes to healing damaged muscle tissue. This increase in oxygen being sent to the muscles allows them to metabolize more glucose into adenosine triphosphate, a biochemically produced enzyme that helps our muscles recover from strains, bruises and other painful issues.
With the positive endorsements of a number of different medical professionals whose studies were focused on separate areas of the body, there is no doubt that Celliant technology not only works, it works extremely well and can help reduce pain throughout the body, while helping with the natural healing process.
Hologenix has organized nine completed clinical studies to date, with more underway. Initially the focus was to prove that Celliant increased tissue oxygen levels by measuring transcutaneous oxygen levels (TCPO2), a practice commonly used for people suffering from hypoxia, peripheral vascular disease or any other condition that inhibits blood flow. Dr. Lawrence Lavery and Dr. Graham McClue commissioned two studies in 2003 and 2005 respectively. Both tests measured oxygen levels first among subjects with previous vascular conditions then among healthy subjects. In 2008, Hologenix commissioned a dual study with Dr. Ian Gordon measuring TCPO2 levels in healthy subjects and also a study designed to measure Celliant's effect on pain levels in subjects suffering from chronic foot pain. In 2009, a pilot study began measuring the effects of Celliant on subjects with significant sleep trouble. To further the research of the impact Celliant has on athletes we conducted a study at the University of Calgary which has been accepted for publication, a small overview is located below until publication is finalized.
Celliant (formerly Holofiber) Blood Flow Studies, Dr. Lawrence Lavery (2003)
OVERVIEW: Celliant is a specially formulated technology that is designed to enhance oxygen levels in the body. Products with Celliant have been clinically proven to relieve pain, increase comfort and aid in healing by increasing oxygen levels and helping to regulate body temperature. Below is a summary of the results of a double blind study completed in 2003 and designed to measure the ability of Celliant to increase oxygen levels in the skin.
STUDY BACKGROUND: The study was conducted by Lawrence A. Lavery, DPM, MPH, an Associate Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation at Loyola University Medical Center and Hines Veterans Administration Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Lavery compared 50% Celliant socks and 100% Celliant gloves to placebo products on the hands and feet of 20 diabetic patients. He measured changes in transcutaneous oxygen, a measure of oxygen in the body. The study was double blind, meaning that neither the participants nor Dr. Lavery knew which products contained Celliant until after the measurements were taken.
RESULTS: After less than an hour, patients wearing products with Celliant showed a statistically significant increase in transcutaneous oxygen. As shown in the figures below, this increase was observed at every ten-minute testing interval. According to Dr. Lavery, "This study provides objective evidence to support what many of us have observed or heard from people that have worn products enhanced with Celliant. It shows a significant increase in blood flow in the skin when study subjects wore the garments."
With regard to the benefits of the product, Dr. Lavery further states "An 8 to 14% improvement in oxygenation could increase circulation enough to improve wound-healing or eliminate leg pain caused by atherosclerosis or other blood flow obstructions. The significant changes observed are very compelling."
The results are in, and there is definitive clinical proof that shows Celliant sleep technology can actually improve and increase the natural healing process that occurs while people sleep. By harnessing the thermal energy that otherwise escapes our bodies while we sleep, and redistributing it to improve circulation and increase oxygenation of the blood and muscle tissue, Celliant fibres found in mattresses, sheets and numerous other bedding products helps people heal faster. Three of the major clinical studies conducted over a number of years at multiple prestigious medical institutions have been listed below with details about their findings.
- In 2003, a study conducted by Dr. Lawrence Lavery of Loyola Medical University Center in Illinois determined that leg pain can be diminished by increasing circulation and improving the oxygenation of the blood.
- In 2008, Dr. Ian Gordon conducted a study focused on chronic foot pain and the positive impact Celliant technology had on the patients who wore socks containing it. The results showed that subjects wearing the socks with Celliant fibres experience almost three times the amount of pain reduction after waking up compared to subjects wearing placebo socks.
- In 2009, Dr. Marcel Hung of the University of California Irvine conducted a study at the university’s Center for Sleep Medicine to determine the type of impact the use of Celliant fibres in a mattress cover would have on people suffering from chronic back pain. The study revealed that sleeping on mattress covers with Celliant fibres allowed subjects to experience a more restful and overall more healthy sleep, with less disturbances and a significant reduction in back pain when they woke up the next morning.
