This page contains Physician Information on the Reza Band.
The Reza Band UES Assist Device was created to improve the quality of life for millions of patients suffering from symptoms associated with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) due to acid reflux into the throat and lungs. This revolutionary, safe, simple and powerfully effective medical device relieves the symptoms associated with this widespread disease.
Patients suffering from LPR present in physician clinics, hospitals, home health care and specialty clinics such as those for sleep and voice disorders. These patients have in common a dysfunctional upper esophageal sphincter (UES). A poorly functioning UES can result in regurgitation of stomach contents into the larynx, pharynx and lungs. This happens most often at night while sleeping supine. Acid reflux into the throat and lungs causes many challenging symptoms that constitute a spectrum of disorders including chronic throat irritation and cough, hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, postnasal drip, sleep disruption, and pneumonia.
The Reza Band is a “first-of-its-kind”, non-medication, non-surgical medical device that is externally worn and applies a slight, external pressure to the cricoid cartilage. In doing so, the Reza Band generates added intraluminal UES pressure to stop reflux from rising above the UES. The Reza Band is a clinically-proven, safe and effective option for reducing LPR symptoms such as chronic throat irritation and cough, hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, and postnasal drip, with few mild and short side effects. The Reza Band may serve as a potential alternative for patients that typically have a poor response or adversion to current standards of treatment.
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.
