What is the Reza Band?
The REZA BAND® is a ground-breaking, new, wearable acid reflux control device that reduces symptoms such as chronic throat irritation and cough, hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, and post nasal drip. Worn while you sleep, the clinically proven REZA BAND stops the flow of stomach contents through the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) by putting a small amount of pressure on the UES. The REZA BAND is prescribed by a doctor to ensure it comfortably fits and stops reflux.
Benefits of the REZA BAND
If you suffer from laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) symptoms due to acid reflux into the throat and lungs such as chronic throat irritation and cough, hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, and post nasal drip, you may now find relief with this simple, non-invasive, non-pill option. Studies have shown that people using the device felt much better once their LPR symptoms were reduced. To learn more, see the Instructions for REZA Band Use.
How the REZA Band feels
Using the REZA BAND feels familiar, like wearing a shirt collar buttoned. Breathing and swallowing are unaffected.
The Science Behind the REZA BAND
The REZA BAND solution is founded on scientific and clinical research conducted over twenty years by a globally recognized gastroenterologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Noticeable improvement in just two weeks
Studies have shown that the majority of people using the device saw significant improvement within in the first two weeks of use. They experienced relief from symptoms such as hoarseness, post nasal drip, sore throat, and the need for throat clearing, hard swallowing, indigestion, wheezing, constant or dry cough, or feeling like there was a lump in the throat.
Clinical trial highlights
86% of patients had a successful outcome using the REZA BAND and no serious or unexpected adverse events were reported.
Studies concluded that the REZA BAND is a safe, effective and non-invasive method to reduce LPR symptoms.
Studies demonstrated excellent patient compliance, outcomes and satisfaction.
The REZA BAND is an effective new option for patients that typically have a poor response to current standards of treatment.

Do you wake from sleep due to acid reflux?
Do you suffer from chronic cough, hoarse voice or sore throat? Do you sleep propped up? You may be one of the millions who suffer from laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) symptoms due to acid reflux into the throat and lungs. This can lead to serious health complications – from hoarse voice to pneumonia – and can rob you of the restorative health benefits of a good night’s sleep.
If you suffer from LPR symptoms due to acid reflux into the throat and lungs, you may now find relief with a novel new medical device. The REZA BAND is the world’s first wearable non-medication, nonsurgical medical device designed to reduce LPR symptoms due to acid reflux.
What is acid reflux?
Reflux occurs when the contents of your stomach flow up into your esophagus. It is normally prevented from coming up into your throat by a ring of muscle called the upper esophageal sphincter or (UES) at the top of your esophagus. If this band of muscle is not working well, stomach contents including acid, pepsins and enzymes may come up into your throat. This condition is called laryngopharyngeal reflux or (LPR).
What are the symptoms?
This type of reflux can cause symptoms such as hoarseness, dripping into the back of your throat (post nasal drip), sore throat, the need for a lot of throat clearing, hard swallowing, indigestion, wheezing, constant or dry cough, feeling like there is a lump in your throat, sleep disruption and pneumonia.
