Rematee Bumper Belt Review
It might not work for everyone, but it’s worth a try - especially if you would prefer not to keep something in your mouth all night long (like a mouthpiece).
Introduction – Rematee Bumper Belt Review
The Rematee Bumper Belt is definitely an interesting stop snoring solution. My first thought was that it was simply a very, very good idea. After all, sleeping on your back is definitely worse for snoring than sleeping on your side (or so it always seems), so I found it pretty reasonable that someone has developed a belt that keeps you from rolling over in the spirit of preventing snoring problems.
What did surprise me, however, was the fact that the company has done so many different things with this design. They’ve incorporated it into T-shirts, night-gowns, and of course – belts.
But does it work? I’ll admit that I had pretty high hopes for the idea before beginning my research – but let’s take a look at the facts and figure out if it might be a good choice for people suffering from sleep-related problems (especially snoring).
This product is basically a belt with three inflatable ‘bumpers’ on the back. These bumpers make it all but impossible to roll over while the device is in use. There are also several ‘comfort’ features that help to make the belt easier to wear on a day-to-day (or rather, night-to-night) basis. For one, it has shoulder straps that help to keep it in place. The inflatable bumpers on the back also help to cushion you while you sleep. You definitely won’t feel like anything is ‘digging’ into your back with this device.
And finally, it comes in 3 fully adjustable sizes. That makes it easy to find the best fit for you. Plus, if you find that the largest size is still a bit small for you, you can buy an extension strap to add up to 20 inches to it – making it usable by virtually anyone.
This product is technically a positional therapy device. It bears this label because it seeks to cure snoring by positioning your body correctly.
The official company website had this to say about clinical trials…
“Extensive clinical trials are underway to determine if positional sleeping solutions can be used to treat sleep apnea.”
They also say that over 1,900 sleep doctors and dentists all over the world recommend Rematee’s line of products – which definitely seems to give some credence to their idea.
Is this product FDA cleared?
No this product is not (nor is it required to be) FDA cleared.
You can buy the Rematee Neoprene Bumper Belt from the official company website for $108.78. There are also other purchasing options that come with more extras – but as far as the basic belt is concerned, this is the price.
I found it to be a little bit on the expensive side – but I’ll also say that it seems to be made of high-quality materials. And the fact that it comes with both a 30 day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty is pretty impressive!

How does the product work?
The idea behind this product has to do with what they call ‘positional therapy’. It’s designed to work by keeping you on your side and not letting you roll over onto your back. The problem with sleeping on your back is that doing so could cause an increase in constriction in the back of the throat – which could then lead to vibration of the tissue surrounding the soft palate. This ‘vibration’ is what causes snoring – so in theory, this device could keep you from snoring if it could keep you from sleeping on your back.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers are definitely saying good things about it – though it’s also not without a few negative reviews. Some people say that it’s not well made and that it simply doesn’t work – though these seem to be in the minority. Most people legitimately seem to like it, and the company definitely seems passionate about what they do.
Here’s an example of part of a positive review I found for this product on Amazon.com.
“…If you want to sleep on your side, I highly recommend this product because it’s comfortable, well-designed and probably a heck of a lot more pleasant than a CPAP machine. I have to go back for another sleep study and I’ll wear this when I’m “studied” to see if it has helped the apnea – will report back then.” –Review from Amazon.com about the Rematee Bumper Belt
And here’s a slightly different review from one of the Amazon’s users…
What you can expect
According to the official product website, most people get used to the Rematee right away. At the most, it shouldn’t take more than a few nights to get accustomed to it. If you usually sleep on your back, then it might take longer – even up to a few weeks.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
Yes, the Rematee Bumper Belt does seem to stack up against the competition. It offers an alternative to mandibular mouthpieces in the sense that it doesn’t require you to put anything into your mouth. It could also enhance the usage of MADs by helping to keep you from sleeping on your back while they’re in.
It’s definitely a solid product based on a fantastic idea.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main differences between this product and other typical stop snoring devices is the fact that it’s not something that you put into your mouth or stick to your skin. It’s really just a belt that you wear that does a great job of keeping you from rolling over onto your back. It might sound simple – but it works for a lot of people and definitely deserves some consideration.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, you won’t need a doctor or a prescription to buy or use the Rematee Bumper Belt.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I’ve discovered about this product.
- It comes with a 30 day money back guarantee and a one year warranty
- It’s recommended by many doctors and dentists
- It’s all natural and doesn’t require medications or prescriptions
- It’s made from Neoprene and seems well-built
- It’s a bit on the expensive size
- Some people say that it doesn’t work very well (that it slips off, etc.)
- Some people simply find that it doesn’t work for them
I was quite impressed with this product. It might not work for everyone, but it’s definitely worth a try – especially if you would prefer not to keep something in your mouth all night long (like a mouthpiece). If it doesn’t end up working for you, then you can simply make use of the 30 day money back guarantee and return it.
All in all, two thumbs up for Rematee for creating a product that fills a pretty vital role in the stop-snoring marketplace. It looks like they’ve really hit the nail on the head!
