CELLIANT®, the flagship product of Hologenix, is a proprietary blend of natural minerals that allows textiles to convert body heat into infrared energy, returning it to the body and temporarily increasing local blood flow and cellular oxygenation. This aids significantly in muscle recovery, increases endurance and improves overall performance in healthy individuals, among other benefits.
“This is another innovative introduction for the time-honored CURAD® brand,” said Sarah Cooper, Senior Manager, Product Management at Medline Industries, LP. “Our partnership with Hologenix substantially increases our commitment to expand the use of infrared in our orthopedic soft goods market, where we think it has great potential.”
“We are honored indeed to partner with such a renowned company as Medline,” said Seth Casden, Hologenix Co-Founder and CEO. “For us, this represents a major expansion of CELLIANT® infrared (IR) bio-responsive textiles into the sports medicine field.”
Several years in development, the new CURAD® orthopedic product line powered by CELLIANT® will officially launch later this year.
