Introducing a textile revolution —
Designtex Celliant

The FDA has determined that Celliant products are medical devices as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and are general wellness products.

Putting people-energy to work.

Putting people-energy to work.

All humans produce and emit energy, even at rest. What if that natural energy could be recycled and harnessed by the body to feel better?

Every second, the body emits enough energy to power a 100-watt lightbulb.

Upholstery, energized.

Designtex Celliant is a proprietary textile backing. It's clinically proven to harness and recycle a person's energy, providing a boost and improving wellbeing. Improved circulation, better thermoregulation, and increased energy — naturally powered by the body.

How it works.

Sit down, relax, and enjoy the benefits of Designtex Celliant. Seriously, that's it.

  1. 01

  2. 02

    Emit.

    The body naturally gives off about 100-watts every second. That’s the fuel that powers the upholstery.

    Celliant is made from safe, naturally occurring thermo-reactive materials selected for their unique properties, including energy absorption and reflection.

  3. 03

    Relax.

    The Designtex Celliant upholstery absorbs the body’s energy and converts the wavelength to infrared. Think of it like natural recycling.

    Infrared energy is clinically proven to promote local circulation. It may be invisible to the human eye, but thermal imaging catches it in action.

  4. 04

    Harness.

    The recycled energy is reflected back to the body and reabsorbed into the skin and tissue. Yes, even through layers of fabric.

    Designtex Celliant starts to work within minutes, resulting in improved local circulation and cell oxygenation.

  5. 05

    Be Well.

    The harnessed infrared energy triggers vasodilation (the widening of capillaries). Put simply, more oxygen is available to the cells.

    Improved circulation can increase energy, speed recovery, and improve the body’s ability to regulate its temperature.

Frequently asked questions.

Will using Designtex Celliant make me hot?

No. Designtex Celliant increases local circulation, which allows your body to either warm up or cool down (depending on the environment), thus bringing you to homeostasis and perfect temperature.

Will I feel Celliant working?

No. While you will not necessarily feel an increase in local circulation or oxygenation, clinical testing has measured significant improvements across a wide spectrum of test subjects. Consumers who try Celliant often experience increased comfort and an overall improved sense of health.

How long do I need to sit to get the benefits?

Designtex Celliant starts working within minutes, continues while you sit, and even delivers residual effects that follow you into your day.

Do Designtex Celliant products require special care?

No. the Celliant fibers are embedded into the textile backing. It won’t wash off or wear out — even under the most rigorous cleaning protocols.

Can the benefits be blocked?

No. Infrared can pass through materials. Designtex Celliant is effective through layers of clothing and fabric. All that’s needed is contact with the upholstery.

Are there any negative side effects?

No. The technology is non-invasive. The FDA classifies Celliant products as low-risk, general wellness products, which are intended to promote a healthy lifestyle.
