REMastered Sleep

REMastered Sleep

A water bottle designed to help reduce snoring.

No one needs another water bottle, right? Sure, but the REMastered Sleep water bottle is more than a vessel—it’s a new solution to breathing problems that cause snoring. Founder and CEO Anders Olmanson, who earned a master’s degree in medical device innovation from the University of Minnesota, came up with the idea after visiting a sleep clinic and discovering that air pressure therapy used on sleep apnea patients has only about a 60% compliance rate. Approaching the problem with fresh eyes, Olmanson focused on the benefits of tongue training; when users learn to rest the tongue on the roof of the mouth, they can improve airway accessibility. So he developed a water bottle nozzle that forces users to create suction, drawing the water up with pressure, which exercises the airway dilator muscles. Users have reported a 93% reduction in snoring after one month of use, and word is spreading: Eagan-based REMastered Sleep has sold more than $200,000 worth of its bottles in 14 months on the market. Health care professionals are among the product’s biggest cheerleaders.
