Positional Therapy is the name given to a family of sleep behavior strategies used to treat any medical condition requiring a positional change in sleep pattern. In short, positional therapy is what we call the process of supporting a change in someone's sleeping position for medical reasons.Examples:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea: altering airway position during sleep
- Glaucoma: maintaining specific eye pressures during sleep
- Pregnancy: maintaining specific sleep positions for a variety of reasons
- Post Surgical Recovery: when sleeping on the back isn't recommended following surgery
- Snoring: preventing the collapse the airway causing snoring
- Or any other conditions relating to body-position during sleep
For many people, their symptoms are worst, or only present, when "supine" (on their back). For many of these folks, their symptoms are either reduced or eliminated by simply sleeping on their side. In the case of OSA, side-sleeping counteracts the effects of gravity pulling your airway closed; your airway doesn't collapse, and you continue to breathe normally while you sleep.
Do doctors recommend positional therapy?
Yes. Positional Therapy is a widely known approach to a variety of therapeutic conditions. Globally, over 2000 sleep doctors and dentists use and recommend Rematee's line of positional sleeping solutions to their patients.
Will positional therapy stop my snoring and treat my sleep apnea?
If you tend to not snore or can breathe easier when sleeping on your side rather than your back, positional therapy will work. It's non-invasive, simple to use, and starts working on the very first night.
Why do I need help to sleep on my side?
Products like the Rematee Bumper Belt and Anti Snore Shirt make it virtually impossible for you to shift into a supine (on the back) sleeping position. If positional therapy works for you, it makes sense to use the Anti Snore Shirt or Bumper Belt to help you maintain the optimal sleeping position. Once you fall asleep you are no longer in control of what position you sleep in!
Product Information Questions:
Is Rematee comfortable?
Yes. Our bumper belts are made of Neoprene material (the same as a wet suit for scuba diving), which is very soft and durable. Shoulder-straps keep the belt in place and allow you to wear your belt high and loose around your chest.
Our shirts are made from 100% breathable cotton and are no different than wearing a regular Tshirt.
Is Rematee FDA approved?
No. Rematee does not have FDA approval. Extensive clinical trials are underway to determine if positional sleeping solutions can be used to treat sleep apnea. You should consult your physician to see if Rematee is suitable for you.
Can I wash my t-shirt/belt?
Yes. All of our T-Shirts and Belts are 100% machine washable. Just make sure to remove the inflatable bumpers first. Wash on a low intensity setting using a bleach-free detergent. Then hang your belt up to dry, or place the wash pouch in the dryer at low heat. If you have a wash/travel pouch for your belt, place the belt in the pouch and place the pouch itself into the washing machine.
