The Science Behind NewGen


When you sleep on a NewGen mattress, you can expect to wake up feeling more refreshed and energized than you ever did on any previous mattress. That is because NewGen mattresses utilize the latest in sleep technology that will help your body feel it’s best. NewGen mattresses feature CELLIANT®, which is a textile comprised of 13 thermally responsive minerals that are woven into the fibres of the mattress ticking and also embedded in the latex itself. CELLIANT is a scientifically advanced material that helps your body recover from physical activity.

What does CELLIANT Do?

When you sleep on a NewGen Mattress made with CELLIANT technology, it will help your body recover from all sorts of different issues. There are a series of clinical studies conducted at various medical institutions that have shown multiple benefits associated with CELLIANT. For one, CELLIANT temporarily increases blood flow, resulting in an average increase of 8.4% tissue oxygenation.* For the average person this means less time dealing with strained muscles and soreness after an injury. The University of Calgary conducted a similar study that focused on athletes and the way CELLIANT can benefit their overall recovery and performance. Once again they found that athletes will benefit from sleeping on mattresses that feature CELLIANT. Another extensive study conducted by the University of California determined that the average person will experience better sleep quality after sleeping on a mattress with CELLIANT. Each of these studies help prove the benefits of sleeping on a mattress that utilizes the CELLIANT technology for anyone from athletes to the average person. CELLIANT also acts as a Vasodilator, which means it helps relax and expand blood vessels.

The present study has added to the body of evidence that suggest that IR-emitting garments can exert real measurable physiological effects, and deserve further study for medical indications.

How Does CELLIANT Work?

CELLIANT’s first reaction is to absorb the heat energy emitted by our bodies, and then reflect and redistribute that same energy back into our body. CELLIANT is comprised of thirteen naturally occurring minerals such as titanium dioxide and aluminum dioxide, that are broken down into a fine powder and then added to polyester fibres which can then be incorporated into any type of fabric or yarn. When a person sleeps on a fabric that has CELLIANT in it, the heat sensitive elements in the fibre become active.

On a regular mattress, the heat emitted from a person’s body simply transfers to the mattress and eventually dissipates. On a mattress with CELLIANT that heat is reabsorbed as infrared energy. This infrared energy helps stimulate blood flow, which in turn accelerates recovery from physical exertion. This entire process continues automatically throughout the night as you sleep, and will make you feel more rested and refreshed than ever before.

By working in concert with the natural energy emitted by the human body, CELLIANT technology found in the NewGen mattresses promote healthy, natural sleep and tissue recovery. To find out more about CELLIANT and the amazing NewGen mattresses visit our Science Page.
