What is a Rematee Bumper Belt?
Rematee's "Bumper-Belt", is a non-prescription positional therapy device used to treat snoring and sleep-related disorders. Over 2,000 Sleep-Doctors around the world recommend Rematee to their patients as an alternative to other treatment options, or to be used with with CPAP, Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT), or surgery.
What is Snoring? What is Sleep Apnea? How can I stop snoring?
Over half of all people over the age of 50 snore. Snoring happens when your airway collapses onto itself. The back of your throat will then vibrate and cause the loud sound of snoring. In some cases, the airway closes up completely, and the sleeper stops breathing briefly and is then awakened. This pattern of breath-stoppage and sleep-interruption when chronic, is called Sleep Apnea.
Sleep apnea leads to decreased oxygen levels in the blood while the subject is asleep. Decreased blood oxygen levels have been linked to high blood pressure, and sometimes brain damage or heart failure. It is also believed to lead to Alzheimer's and other diseases. See our Clinical Studies section for more information.
The most common treatment for sleep apnea and snoring is using a CPAP machine, which can cost thousands of dollars, and requires regular maintenance. However, positional therapy alone can often be enough to treat mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea.
How Rematee Works
The Rematee bumper belt is a positional therapy option. Positional therapy works by changing the position of your body to counteract your airway's tendency to collapse. The inflatable bumpers on the back of the belt will keep you sleeping on your side. This counteracts gravity and prevents your airway from collapsing. By sleeping on your side, you will stop snoring. Positional therapy is the least invasive, most comfortable, and most affordable anti snore solution
Our bumper belts are made of durable Neoprene. This material is soft against your skin, extremely durable, and machine-washable. Your bumper belt will fasten around your chest with durable high-quality Velcro. This material is not your average Velcro. It will not scratch your skin or stick to bed sheets.
- Shoulder-Straps will keep your belt in place and will allow you to wear your belt high and loose around your chest. Shoulder straps are fully adjustable and are made of soft elastic to ensure that you are comfortable when sleeping on your side.
- Inflatable Bumpers on the back of our belts fit into our patented pocket system, and will cushion you to keep you comfortably sleeping on your side. The bumpers will not wake you up or disrupt your sleep. Inflatable bumpers are designed to withstand up to 500lbs, and inflate easily. They allow you to customize the amount of side-sleeping support you will need to be comfortable and to stop snoring, and can be deflated for compact traveling.
- 5 sizes will make it easy for you to find the perfect fit. The easiest way to find the right size is to measure around your chest just below your armpits. Sizing charts are available on each product page. The adjustable Velcro will make it easy for you to be comfortable in your bumper belt. For our larger customers, an extension strap is available to add up to 20" of Velcro to your belt.
