With the slumberBUMP’s NEW One Size Fits All just released, it might help to know a little bit about it before you decide if this is a “fit” for you. We’ve long anticipated releasing this new version because of the convenience it extends to a new range of customers. As a leader in "Alternative-Conservative Therapy for Snoring and Sleep Disordered Breathing", we know that many people will find themselves happy and satisfied with the One Size Fits All.

The new One Size Fits All has a number of benefits that make it highly recommendable for any snoring or other sleep disorder issues.

● Breathable mesh belt for all-night comfort.

● One size fits all strap for all sizes.

● Anti-microbial fabric to eliminate odors and other smells.

The slumberBUMP One Size Fits All has been clinically proven to reduce snoring. It often is recommended by Sleep Doctors to patients with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Positional Sleep Therapy works extremely well in tandem with a CPAP. The sleep belt will help you stop sleeping on your back and help you sleep on your side. Sleeping on your back can be problematic for people with Sleep Apnea. Sleeping in that position makes the airways collapse which is one of the primary problems of Sleep Apnea. Due to gravity, the soft tissue in a person’s neck falls into the airway. When this happens during the night the brain alerts the person to wake up. This can be up to one hundred times in a night in some of the more severe cases. This will also cause vibrations which makes the snoring sound we have all come to know (but not love). Sleeping on your back has been statistically proven to make apnea less likely.

By forcing the sleeper on their side, the airways can’t collapse. This is what the slumberBUMP sleep belt does. Any practitioner of Positional Sleep Therapy would be able to see the obvious benefits that it provides. Usually, the device only needs to be worn for 30-60 days before sleeping on the side becomes natural.

The slumberBUMP One Size Fits All would be recommended for all those who suffer from snoring or have mild to moderate cases of OSA. In most snoring cases and some cases of OSA the slumberBUMP sleep belt can most, if not all, of fix the symptoms. If done in addition to the CPAP, the treatment is one of the most effective forms out there. It’s usually most effective for positional dependent snorers. Those that find that they only snore when on their back are the ones who stand to benefit the most from the slumberBUMP sleep belt.

Most people diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea will initially be recommended a Continuous Positive Air Pressure device aka a CPAP. These work extremely well but they are just plain uncomfortable for many users. It can be loud, irritating, and many people find it restricts their range of motion. The One Size Fits All will help this by moving users onto their sides, making the CPAP more comfortable. In addition, sleeping on one’s side will give more freedom of motion throughout the night, making it easier to keep the CPAP one throughout the duration of the night.

Unlike the standard slumberBUMP sleep belt, the One Size Fits All is made for all body types due to the velcro system implemented on the belt. Some users found that the standard sleep belt couldn’t quite fit their body shape and so some adjustments were made in order to address that. Besides being able to fit all users, this will also allow them to adjust it so that it’s most comfortable. If adjusted correctly this may be able to reduce that initial soreness most customers find in the first week or two of adjusting to their new sleeping position.

In the past customers have been extremely satisfied with the results of the slumberBUMP sleep belt. On August 31, 2017, Chris said…

 

“Great little product. I have used it now for a couple of weeks. Keeps me on my side and snoring is reduced. does what it says. Next step for me is to get a new mattress””

 

This clinically proven, effective, solution has helped plenty of customers with sleep apnea and snoring. That’s why over 90% of buyers actually use it. The comfortability just makes it such an obvious solution.

Besides being comfortable, it is also one of the easiest devices to pack up and take on vacation. A CPAP can be cumbersome, an oral device needs a plastic container so it’s not getting germs from other luggage, and medication needs to be kept safe. The slumberBUMP sleep belt is small and light to carry. Conveniently, it also has a removal bladder for these exact travel reasons. Plus, it’s not like you necessarily have to be worried about breaking it if you drop your duffel bags. Peaceful travel leads to peaceful sleep!

For a fair price of $89.99, there’s no reason anybody shouldn’t try it as a potential treatment or supplement for all sleep disordered snoring issues. It’s non-invasive, cheap, and extremely effective. Other forms of treatment have their strengths, but positional sleep therapy time and time again is the most cost-effective and comfortable.

About the Company

man on bed using slumberbumpSlumberBUMP is a leading company in selling Alternative-Therapy for Snoring and Sleep Disordered Breathing. They started as an oral appliance office and realized how beneficial their products were for sleep. They began looking for additional ways to help restore sleep and became interested in how sleeping position influences a good night’s rest. Their vision involves creating happier lives for their patients who snore. Their products are designed with the patient in mind, functional, and are non-medicated with low costs. Their most well-known product is the slumberBUMP™ Positional Sleep Belt which acts as a sleeping position trainer to help ensure patients get a better night’s sleep.

What a Sleeping Position Trainer Does

Around 30% of people aged 30 years and older snore, which can affect both their and their partner’s sleep. For good physical and mental health, you need a good night’s sleep. Continuous sleep disruptions are correlated to higher risks of kidney and heart disease – as well as diabetes and stroke.

One primary cause of snoring for patients is vibrations in the airway. For some people, their throat closes partially during sleep, causing air to travel through more quickly. This leads to a phenomenon known as snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea and is usually associated with snoring. If you have OSA, your airways are narrower than normal. When you lay on your back, your palate is above your airway. When the throat of pharynx muscles relax during sleep, the palate can fall backward and disrupt their airway. It is not recommended for chronic snorers of those with sleep apnea to sleep on their back or stomach.

Doing something as simple as sleeping on your side can reduce snoring and instances of sleep apnea. People can also find they have a reduction in acid reflux and less neck and back pain just by switching their positions. Changing how you sleep can be difficult, but a sleeping position trainer can help you along your journey to better sleep. How these devices work is simple – they prevent you from sleeping on your front or back. Some devices can cause a small vibration that will remind you to adjust your position (without disrupting your sleep) while others physically prevent you from rolling over with applications such as an inflated air bag. It has been found in a position trainer sleep study that sleep position trainers can lead to an increase in sleep quality and overall quality in life.

The slumberBUMP

The slumberBUMP™ Positional Sleep Belt is a light-weight sleep belt that trains individuals to sleep in a non-supine position. The slumberBUMP consists of an inflated air pouch around your chest that prevents you from rolling over unconsciously in your sleep. This device can act as a complement to CPAP therapy for snoring and can be purchased for $69.99. The belt is made from sturdy, non-microbial, ripstop nylon that reduces odors, tearing and makes wearing it to sleep more comfortable. It is available in a variety of sizes:

Often, the device only needs to be worn for 30-60 days before sleeping on your side becomes natural. It is a simple product to use and in a clinical study was found to reduce snoring for about 80% of users. Around 90% of users who purchase the device wear and use it at night. The reviews for this product are varied with 41% of reviewers giving it a 5-star rating. The product comes with a one-year guarantee and if you are not satisfied, you can return it within 15 days for a full refund. All the parts are washable and feature non-snag zippers.

My Experience

The slumberBUMP is the first position trainer I tried. I ordered it because it seemed like a reasonably priced, and good quality product. There are several other position trainers on the market for those suffering from snoring or sleep apnea, however, some people just tape tennis balls to their back.

The product is very light and easy to put on. It requires inflation first, similar to blowing up a beach ball or an inflatable toy. Every few nights it loses a little air, so you will need to add more air when this happens, but it is simple and easy to blow up.

Sleeping with the slumberBUMP is challenging. Like most position trainers, it requires an adjustment period. I experienced disturbing dreams all night the first time I wore it. This was likely due to being unable to turn over onto my back. My subconscious didn’t appear to like this. I kept trying the device and I found myself waking up a few times and struggling with the desire to take it off. There’s a reason these devices are called “Trainers” – they take time to adapt and learn to use. If your body is used to sleeping on its back for years and suddenly it can’t, there is going to be some repercussions.

The good news is that slumberBUMP does reduce snoring. When used alone, it reduces snoring moderately.

The slumberBUMP enabled me to test several snoring pillows that are for side sleepers and test a variety of snoring products. Using this product allowed me to compare how other anti-snoring devices and aids work for both multi-position and side-sleeping.

I found the slumberBUMP was very helpful as a complementary therapy. On its own, it is not a cure for snoring – however, when used with pillows, mouthpieces, TRDs, or other snoring aids, it improves results and makes other anti-snoring devices more effective.

Summary

SlumberBUMP is a great complementary snoring therapy. It comes as a good price and while it requires adjustment, using slumberBump alone can help reduce snoring, however it is not a cure. Combining it with other anti-snoring devices can have positive results and reduce snoring even more.
