The Rematee Neoprene Bumper Belt is a positional aid to keep you sleeping on your side. For many snorers and those with mild OSA, the effects are greatly reduced, if not eradicated, by side sleeping. If your snoring is made worse by sleeping on your back, then try the Rematee. The air bumpers on the back of the belt gently prevent you from rolling onto your back while you sleep, and therefore helps to keep your snoring and OSA under control. Those with moderate to severe OSA can also find the Rematee makes their condition more manageable. Read below for more information.
For some OSA patients, their AHI drops significantly when sleeping on their side. The reason for this is simply; gravity is no longer pulling the lower jaw inwards towards the throat, which causes the thoat to close up and leads to apnoeas. The Rematee Bumper Belt ensures you stay sleeping on your side.
Often the partner of a snorer will notice that snoring stops, or is noticably reduced, when they sleep on their side. If this it the case with you, then the Rematee could make a significant improvement to the quality of your, and your partner's, sleep.
The Rematee Bumper Belt goes around your chest, and has air bumpers on the back. These bumper prevent you from rolling onto your back while you sleep, gently providing resistance when you roll over to keep you in position - and keep you from snoring. The video below explains how the Rematee design works - and how it can help you.
The unique design of the Rematee Bumper Belt ensures to you stay sleeping on your side, and cannot role onto your back and trigger snoring and apnoeas. The inflatable cushions on the belt gently prevent you from rolling over, while being barely noticeable while actually on your side.
The Rematee based on an old technique of sewing a tennis ball onto the back of a shirt to achieve the same effect; but without the discomfort caused when you do roll over. With the Rematee, it is gentle but firm resistance that allows you to continue to sleep comfortably while it does its job.
Intus Healthcare have conducted many Sleep Studies over the last few years, and many patients showed a notable increase in snoring and apnoea events while sleeping on their back; some even saw it occurring exclusively while on their back. What this means is that the Rematee Bumper Belt can potentially make a significant impact on snoring and mild OSA by keeping you on your side.
Depending on the exact nature of your OSA, the Rematee Bumper Belt could provide a direct alternative to CPAP therapy. Even if side-sleeping does not eradicate it entirely, it can reduce it and therefore lessen the reliance on CPAP. For Auto-CPAP users this can lead to lower pressures being required and greater comfort as a result.
Another benefit of using the Rematee in conjunction with your CPAP is that by keeping you in one position, you reduce the chances of dislodging your mask as you sleep, and the red marks and leaks that come as a result. While the Rematee was designed as an alternative to CPAP for those with OSA, it can also be used as a an excellent adjunct to CPAP.
I phoned to order a new hose for my CPAP machine and received excellent service. The hose was on sale with no shipping cost and there was a promotion on that gave me a second hose at no cost plus a container of wipes. Everything just cost me $18.30. I received everything in the mail three mailing days later. I was very surprised and pleased to get it so fast. I will most definitely contact you when I need parts again.

Wow Fast and very helpful srvice
My local Vancouver Island CPAP store wanted $2400 for an S10 RESMED including $400 extra for the humidifier tank that already comes with the machine. They also told me that I couldn t get extended medical insurance if I bought online. Wow , this is totally untrue. I found CPAP clinic through several references on a CPAP forum. Talked to the manager on the phone and got the same machine for $980, delivered to my home at no extra cost and my extended medical insurance paid for it. The service offered by CPAP Clinic is great. They even threw in some extra filters with my order for free. Fast, very helpful and I will be a repeat customer because of my experience. Dennis Nanaimo BC

This travel unit is amazing ! Small, light and efficient. Quick and easy set up. Bluetooth connected immediately with no issue. Helpful phone app that gives you a sleep score each night. I am so happy that the folks at the CPAP Clinic exchanged the Z1 I originally purchased for this unit. Thank you !
