Origins of the Sona Pillow®

“Many of my patients tried a number of different treatment options for snoring before they finally found relief with the Sona Pillow®.”

History behind these products

Sona Pillow® O model was designed by Dr. Z, a multiple board-certified neurologist and sleep specialist. Dr. Z is a Harvard graduate and a neurologist with specialized fellowship training in sleep medicine and sleep disorders from UCLA. Dr. Z is a world renowned highly acclaimed sleep specialist and frequently lectures to other neurologists and sleep disorders specialty conferences around the world and in the United States. Dr. Z initially invented and patented the Sona Pillow® which sold million pillows around the world. Dr. Z has done multiple studies at Sleep institutions proving the efficacy and the effectiveness of the Sona Pillow®.

Sona Positioning®

Dr. Z also discovered the specific positioning of the jaw and the head which when laying on one side with the head facing downwards at the predetermined angle while using the Sona Pillow® and the Sona Pillow® O model.  This moves the mandible forward avoiding the retro positioning of the jaw which prevents the obstruction of the throat leading to sleep apnea and snoring. This specific position is trademarked as Sona Positioning® and protected by the trademark treaties.  Since the initial presentation of the Sona Pillow® this specific pillow and specific Sona Positioning® has been cited in nearly a thousand medical studies. It is now considered to be the standard of care for alleviating snoring and sleep apnea.

It has always been Dr. Z’s belief as an esteemed US sleep specialist that the proper positioning of the jaw utilizing the Sona Positioning® method prevents snoring and sleep apnea. Lateral positioning and Sona Positioning® has been shown to be beneficial in preventing sleep apnea, providing better sustained sleep. Positional therapy has been medically proven to be beneficial and is also considered part of management of hypertension stroke snoring bruxism obesity memory dysfunction and even preeclampsia in pregnant women. With detailed medical studies and extensive medical knowledge of sleep disorders Dr. Z has patented multiple pillows which alleviate and help achieve restful healthy sleep.

Unique Patented Pillows

The Sona Pillow O model® is now the second iteration of the sort of device with use of the trade marked Sona Positioning®. The Sona Pillow O Model® is extremely unique offering multiple benefits including providing us the patented surface and design which prevents aging and wrinkling of the skin. Using regular pillows causes wrinkling of the skin because of creases in the pillow cases and pillows themselves. That is why people who sleep on one side is always, are more noticeably wrinkled on that side compared to the other side and this leads to prominent facial asymmetry and advanced aging look.

The best position would be to sleep on your back but that is not always possible but this Sona Pillow O model® is specifically made for that also because it has a central indentation which forms a cradle for the head to rest while lying on your back. The gradual incline of the pillow with the cradle forms a perfect position for back sleepers. For people sleeping on the side the central indentation serves as a perfect position to cradle your ear and that prevents compression of the ear and discomfort caused by laying on one side.

Sleep more continuously with less interruption

The central cradling indentation of the Sona Pillow O model® promotes maintaining one position whole night long. So you sleep on one side and wake up on the same side, well rested without facial lines from the other pillows sold by the infomercials like car salesman with no training and no background in sleep medicine. Dr. Z on the other hand has immense accolades as a highly trained professor, teacher, author, and acclaimed inventor.

The patented design of the Sona Pillow O model® moves the jaw forward and maintains the face in the proper Sona Positioning® and prevents retrognathia and backward positioning of the jaw and mandible avoiding obstruction, snoring, grinding of the teeth and possibly preventing sleep apnea also. The central indentation is made for accommodating a blue tooth speaker for sleep machine and relaxing sleep promoting sounds. These serve as natural and tested relaxing sounds which help in promoting faster sleep onset and alleviate insomnia and anxiety and ease the relaxation process promoting sleep onset.

Dr. Z is a board-certified neurologist with expertise and fellowship training in electroencephalography, epilepsy, sleep disorders and neuromuscular disorders.

MERRIMACK, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Taking the approach that people who sleep on their sides are less likely to snore, innovative Remarkable Life USA today announced the nationwide launch of the new anti-snoring Sona Pillow®, a specially designed pillow that promotes a comfortable side-sleeping position and is clinically shown to help stop snoring and to treat mild sleep apnea.

“Many of my patients tried a number of different treatment options for snoring before they finally found relief with the Sona Pillow®”


Developed by Florida neurologist Dr. Z, M.D., the Sona Pillow® already has helped thousands of users and their partners get a more restful nights sleep. According to a study published in the medical journal, Sleep and Breathing, people who used the Sona Pillow generally snored less often, took in more oxygen and experienced better overall sleep.

The secret lies in the patented & ® Sona Pillows shape. Users place one arm comfortably under the pillows sleeping surface in a recessed space and remain in a naturally comfortable side-sleeping position thanks to the pillows triangular design and raised center. The contour of the Sona Pillow® helps people avoid sleeping on their back where they are more likely to snore and places them in a side position with the head facing downward. This sleeping position moves the jaw forward and helps to keep the airway open, which helps to avoid snoring and leads to a better nights sleep for both the user and his or her partner.

Many of my patients tried a number of different treatment options for snoring before they finally found relief with the Sona Pillow®, said Dr. Z, who has more than a decade of experience in neurology and sleep therapy. Sometimes those most grateful for the Sona Pillow® are not even the people who stopped snoring but their partners who now get a peaceful and full nights sleep. Couples tell me all the time the Sona Pillow® literally has saved their marriage.

“Our popular retail store is all about improving the lives of our customers, and what could be better than a peaceful nights sleep thanks to Dr. ZSona Pillow®, said retailer’s CEO. We believe the Sona Pillow® addresses the very real issue of snoring that affects people, and couples, throughout the country.
