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.
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.
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.”
