SitReliefs padded undergarments were clinically tested by physicians in HIV+ men with lipoatrophy and sitting pain.
The 2 month study demonstrated a dramatic increase in sitting comfort. At baseline, subjects were able to sit comfortably for an average of 11 minutes. With SitRelief Shorts, the average comfortable sitting time increased to three hours!
A validated HIV Quality of Life Survey demonstrated a significant increase in Physical Function and Social Function as a result of wearing SitRelief Shorts. In addition, Mental Health and Cognitive Function also improved as a result of sitting pain relief.
The following areas improved significantly:
In addition, trouble remembering things and short attention span improved.
As a result of sitting pain relief, subjects reported being able to participate longer and concentrate better in a wide variety of activities including:
This expansion in activities contributed to the improved Quality of Life Rating scales in the multiple areas noted above.
In general, subjects also reported:
"Wow!" is a common response
"Thank you, thank you"
"Great pain relief"
"Why didn't someone think of this before???"
"Feel good about appearance for first time in a long time"
"The Shorts changed my life!"
"Every chair felt better"
"Clothes fit better"
"I can't imagine life without them"
"I reduced my pain medications"
A focus group of senior men with lipoatrophy and sitting pain was held. The results were essentially the same as the results from the clinical trials in HIV men.
Seniors provided the following comments:
"I could sit thru my grand daughter's college graduation in comfort"
"Thank you very much"
"Attended outdoor concert I would have not gone to"
"Driving was more comfortable"
"You have a winner for seniors!"
SitRelief Shorts significantly improved sitting pain comfort and appearance and significantly increased the quality of life in subjects with lipoatrophy and sitting pain.
