What Is The SleepRite?
The SleepRite is technically called a ‘Micro CPAP’ device, but it is actually a little bit different than what you might expect. When people hear the term ‘CPAP,’ they instantly think of a CPAP machine used to treat sleep apnea.
Well, this device is certainly not a machine. It is actually quite small, and technically falls under the ‘nasal dilator’ category. This is a pretty unique product, to be honest. But as it turns out, it is also one of the better ones that we have seen.
Here is what you need to know if you are considering giving the SleepRite a try.
What Does The SleepRite Claim To Do?
First of all, let’s not get the SleepRite Confused with the ‘SleepRight.’ They are actually two different devices… and today, we are talking about the ‘SleepRite: The Original Micro CPAP Device.’
This product is generally misunderstood. In fact, in researching it for this review, we actually uncovered several misunderstandings that were making the rounds and decided to try to do our best to explain them.
Many people think that the SleepRite MicroCPAP works kind of like an EPAP device. They think that when you wear it, it applies pressure through valves that makes it more difficult to exhale… and that this causes a buildup of positive air pressure in the airway.
Yes, the SleepRite does contain vents. And yes, these vents may actually contribute to a buildup of positive airway pressure upon exhalation.
But… it is also important to understand that SleepRite DOES NOT advertise this on their site, or even reference it. In fact, toward the bottom of the landing page on their website, they even say this.
“In no way SleepRite replaces a medical device prescribed by a doctor. SleepRite only helps with regular snoring. The acronym “CPAP” on our device stands for Contact of Pairs on Airways of Person.”
Now, with that being said, it is understandable that people might misunderstand this… because CPAP usually stands for ‘Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.’
Actually, we believe that there used to be a product out there very similar to this that claimed to use actual EPAP technology to help treat snoring. But once again, SleepRite does not make any such claim as this.
Officially, the SleepRite Anti Snore Micro CPAP helps you to stop snoring ‘by gently dilating the nasal airways.’ They also say that the specially designed snore reduction vents offer a more effective dilation, which helps even more.
But… with THAT being said… it is also possible that this device DOES provide an EPAP-like effect, as the vents may be a bit harder to breathe out through than into.
So yeah. If you are confused by all of this, don’t feel bad. We had to check, double check, and triple check to clear up the confusion. But this seems to be what the device actually does.
How To Use SleepRite
Using this product is very simple. You simply insert the soft nasal dilation cones into the nasal passages, and then go to sleep.
As long as you are wearing the device, it is supposed to help contribute to a better night’s sleep and reduced snoring by helping to keep your nasal passages open.
Clinical Background And Certificates
They say on the website that SleepRite has been rated ‘one of the most effective anti snoring devices on the market.’ They also say that it has been reviewed by over 4,000 customers, and that it has 5 stars and that it is a ‘top rated’ device. But aside from these things, we saw no evidence that the SleepRite is actually clinically proven.
We also did not see anything regarding any certificates that it has earned.
Who Is SleepRite For?
The website actually didn’t have much information about the device in this regard. We would suppose, from what we could find, that this device is intended for individuals aged 18 and older who have a snoring problem and would like to try a nasal dilator to solve it.
Who May Not Benefit From The SleepRite?
If you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, this device may not work for you, as sleep apnea is a much more serious condition than regular snoring. This device is said to be for the treatment of snoring, but nothing is said about Sleep Apnea.
More About The Company Behind The Brand
The SleepRite website is owned and operated by Sunlight Unlimited LLC. We know that you can call the company toll free at 877-366-9601, and that you can also contact them via email at email@example.com. You can also check on the order status of your order through the official website.
We were unable to locate and/or verify a physical address for the company.
The website only tells us a little bit about the material used to make the product. They say that it is made from ‘comfortable molding’ that will fit in the nose without a problem. They also say that it is designed and engineered in the USA.
We were actually really pleased to see that SleepRite offers a 30 day return guarantee with their product, which is pretty awesome. Obviously we like 60 or 90 day guarantees even better—but hey, we will take a 30 day guarantee and won’t complain about it!
Awards And Media Background
From what we can tell, this product has not necessarily won any awards (other than the company claiming that it is the best rated micro CPAP). As far as a media background is concerned, there are some mixed reviews online about the product but most are very positive.
Some people seem to be displeased with it, while others seem to love it.
One thing that we did realize was the grand scope of attention that this device has gotten. There is so much stuff out there online about it that you could almost read for hours without even getting through most of it. This device has really made an impact, and it seems like a lot of people have tried it.
So yeah. There are mixed reviews, and there are also a lot of reviews of imitations of this product out there as well. But this is a product that has apparently been tried by a LOT of people.
Pricing And Checkout Security
As far as pricing is concerned, this product is perhaps a little bit on the expensive side for a nasal dilator. We have seen cheaper ones sell for $15 to $20, but those by the looks of it are said to be less effective. The fact that this is more than just a traditional nasal dilator also plays into this. And in the end, we actually felt like the price of $39.95 was not an unreasonable one.
Of course, it is backed up by a 30 day money back guarantee, which is pretty awesome.
As far as checkout security is concerned, they say right on the landing page that this website operates with ‘the most strict standards to ensure the most secure online experience.’
They also say that their online ordering is SSL Secured, which we liked.
So yeah. Two thumbs up in this department. We liked all of this.
Shipping Costs To New Zealand
Shipping costs vary depending on exactly where you need the item shipped. They do say, however, that they offer shipping via USPS in the US, and via China EMS (ePacket) for worldwide shipping.
Any Signs That The SleepRite Could Cause Any Side Effects?
We have done quite a bit of research about this product, and basically have come to the conclusion that there are really only one very basic, general complaint about it.
- It can tend to make the nostrils a little bit sore
There are obviously a lot of reviews out there for this device, but this was the only one that we saw enough times to feel like it warranted inclusion here. Of course, learning to sleep with something in your nose if you are not used to it might be quite a chore at first—so yes, it might take some time to get used to it.
We have used nasal dilators before and can certainly understand how they can cause soreness in the nostrils. But then again, this device is pretty soft and gentle… and that makes a pretty big difference.
Summary Of Our Findings
This is one of the more ‘unique’ types of stop snoring devices that we have looked at recently. And yes, it does have a few shortcomings… but for the most part, we were quite intrigued by it.
It has not had any clinical studies done on it yet, but it certainly seem to have a lot of potential.
The product also proved to boast a myriad of benefits. For one, it is unique. It is also made from soft materials that won’t be as hard on the nostrils as some other types of material we’ve seen used on dilators before, and that is a plus.
It also comes with the vent that is supposed to ‘enhance’ the nasal dilation. Yes, it is a bit gimmicky that they use the acronym ‘CPAP,’ but hey… they probably do this to try to grab customer attention… and it honestly seems more like a marketing stunt than a misleading fact about the product itself.
At the end of the day, we didn’t have a problem with it.
So yeah. We give it two thumbs up and say that it is worth a try for anyone who snores, especially since it offers a 30 day money back guarantee.
