FITTING & USAGE
FOR RELIEF FROM ACID REFLUX AT NIGHT
A Comfortable Fit Is Easy
Because Reflux Band is worn around the neck while you sleep, you may understandably have concerns about how it feels. Rest assured the doctor-designed device is safe to use and FDA cleared. Reflux Band applies just a slight pressure below the Adam’s apple to prevent acid from reaching into the throat and lungs. The pressure feels similar to wearing a buttoned shirt collar, and breathing and swallowing remain normal.
Once fitted, Reflux Band is ready for use. You may occasionally need another fitting if, for example, there’s a change in your weight or if you remove the Comfort Band for any reason.
Watch our fitting video or download the printable PDF (in multiple languages) for step-by-step instructions on how to properly fit your Reflux Band.
Comes with Everything You Need
Reflux Band comes with custom fitting tools to help you achieve the perfect fit in minutes. The External Manometer, or pressure meter, and the Pressure Sensor allow you to measure and set the correct amount of pressure.
Plus, the Comfort Band and SmartCushion make the device comfortable to wear, so you can get relief from acid reflux at night and get some sleep.

Many See Results Within 2 Weeks
As with any new device, it may take some time to get used to wearing Reflux Band. Most users adjust after a few nights. For others, it may take up to a week. We suggest you wear Reflux Band for at least four consecutive weeks to determine if it’s right for you.
Some Reflux Band users start to see improvement within two weeks, but severe symptoms may take several weeks to improve.
Remember, Reflux Band is a UES assist device, meaning it helps the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) do its job and keep acid reflux out of the throat and lungs. Clinical Studies show Reflux Band can help relieve or eliminate this type of acid reflux, known as LPR. You may know it as silent acid reflux.
