Celliant Fibre Technology

Celliant technology converts the body’s vibrant energy emissions, otherwise known as heat, into Far Infrared light (FIR) and emits it onto the body, where it is absorbed by the tissue and muscles. Among the total spectrum, FIR waves are the safest and most beneficial as they penetrate deepest into the skin and produce a uniform effect. Celliant technology incorporates thirteen thermally responsive minerals, embedded into the core of the fibers. These fibers are then knit or woven into fabrics and when worn or placed near the body, increase oxygen levels, clinical studies have shown.

Celliant Properties

Microscopic Images

  • Specifically formulated, worldwide patent-protected mineral compound.
  • Micron-sized particles are embedded into fiber during extrusion. Average size of each Celliant particle is one micron.
  • A permanent part of the fiber, lasting the life cycle of the material. The Celliant minerals never washout, meaning no special laundry instructions required.
  • A human hair is between 40-120 microns.

How Celliant Works

1.

Celliant Fibers are created from natural minerals and embedded into polyester fibres.

2.

Celliant fibers absorb energy from the body.

Celliant embeded into mattress polyester fibers

Celliant fibers store the energy

3.

Celliant converts the energy into a form usable by the body.

4.

Celliant recycles this usable energy back to the body.

Excess body heat is absorbed by the mattress

The IR energy is recycled back to the body

5.

This recycled energy triggers natural chemical reactions in the body.

6.

These reactions result in increased blood flow and oxygenation into the tissue.

International Certifications

Celliant has been designated a Class 1 medical device in the EU per European Directive 93/42/EEC. Accordingly, products containing Celliant should be affixed with the CE mark highlighting this fact. In addition, Celliant has received similar designation as a Class 1 medical device in the Australia/New Zealand markets with Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approval. 

Infrared Light

The Healing Power of Infrared Light
The sun doesn’t just provide light for us to see by. That same light becomes energy that living things use to thrive and grow. Humans absorb the sun’s energy through the skin which helps to support cellular healing and repair. Learn how to capture the healing power of solar energy and strengthen immune function, reduce fatigue, reverse depression and improve sleep.

Oxygen Rich

Oxygen’s influence and its role in Human Body
In the human body, the oxygen is absorbed by the blood stream in the lungs, being then transported to the cells where an elaborated change process takes place.

Lack of oxygen in body tissues creates a defect of red blood cells that further exacerbates the condition by constricting blood vessels in the lung
A persistent scarcity of oxygen in body tissues – a widespread problem in patients with heart or lung disease – can create a defect of red blood cells that further exacerbates the condition by constricting blood vessels in the lung, Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers at Duke University Medical Center have found.

Aerobic & Anaerobic Energy – Phosphagen, Glycolytic and Oxidative Phosphorylation Systems 
There are three major energy systems in the human body that yield ATP (adenosine triphosphate: the body’s energy source). They are the phosphagen system, glycolytic system, and oxidative phosphorylation. The systems will be explained later on in this section. They are important in sport because each system is used differently at different intensities. This is why sport specific training is so important in athletic performance. You must first recognize the difference between anaerobic and aerobic metabolism.
