Clinical Results

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!
