Hi Geo, I still don't see how this "thing" would prevent one from turning over unless a "high pitched alarm" went off! And I still don't think it would awaken me. You said it's impossible to roll-over? Is this belt strapped to the bed somehow? Or is this belt made of some heavy duty lead material?
Don't know much about catapillars other than they're fuzzy let alone know their movement! Sounds to me like this thing is more like a "straight jacket for the pelvis area"? Sounds uncomfortable. I prefer freedom when I sleep. This thing sounds binding is it? Also very uncomfortable. Like your half asleep? Like I said I have one w/a "detachable lumbar support". It was the worse thing I ever had to sleep with. That was done after 2 nites I think, if even that. I can't imagine getting any sleep w/this thing but like I said I have a bad habit of somewhere in the nite rolling over and finding myself in this position when I wake by the alarm clock. When I get up it's agony sometime because only God knows how long I was in that position. I'm surprised my back doesn't go into horrible spasms. I would give anything to prevent this, but this "belt" sounds cruel. But I would try anything to help this situation.
We dream regardless of our body's position. We just remember more when on our backs. Unfortunately some people have nitemares. Like me. Let me know more about this belt. I would purchase one if I knew it wasn't like a "straight jacket".
