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.
The manufacturer recommends that new patients purchase their devices, masks and initial accessories from a homecare company that can provide an individualized patient equipment setup, clinical and after-sales support, and a program to assist patients with therapy success.
CPAP Clinic meets this set of requirements by providing you with the following services:
I placed an order yesterday for some replacement gels for my mom s mask and...they arrived today, free shipping included. All the other places I phoned and even placed an order with never even bothered to reply. I guess they see it as a bother, unless you order big ticket items. You have found a new customer. Thank you.

Your price for the CPAP Fisher& Paykel 400HC302 Head strap is inflated and triple the list price on the market. No wonder health costs are sky rocketed, and inflated. Greed and relying on customer ignorance only gains you disrespect and contempt. How about lowering it to 30.00 discounted at 424.95 like others? 0 Stars and very upset with your company s practices.
