NEW YORK, NY | January 15, 2019 – GuardLab®, a custom mouthguard brand known for using innovative 3D digital scanning and 3D printing technology announces today the first ultra-thin semi-custom mouthguard for their APEX™ Collection, named APEX™ Lite.
Designed as ultra-thin, low-profile and made from soft, yet protective & absorbent dental grade materials - the APEX™ Lite is characterized as simple, pure and effective. It is ideal for light contact sports, including basketball, wrestling, hockey, football, soccer, lacrosse and more. The APEX™ Collection now includes 2 thicknesses (APEX™ and APEX™ Lite) and a variety of colors and designs.
The APEX™ line of semi-custom mouthguards by GuardLab® are an innovative solution to the self-fit market for kids or adults. We studied thousands of digital 3D scans to find the optimal shape and size of a properly fitted mouthguard, and used these findings to create 3 universal sizes and a patent-pending pre-indented bite pattern. All APEX™ Guards are recognizable from our distinctive 3D geometric bite pattern found inside of every APEX™ Guard, which produces a quicker and more precise fitting with less material movement.
“We carefully listened to our customers and we are excited to offer an ultra-thin, protective mouthguard that athletes can easily self-fit at home. The APEX™ Lite is specifically geared to the modern athlete who wants essential protection and a clean aesthetic without surrendering comfort,” said GuardLab CEO, Aidan Butler.
GuardLab continues to produce the most accurate fitting custom-fit mouthguards, using advanced 3D technology and a proprietary Alignment Repositioning Cushion (ARC™) that helps to provide better head balance, enhanced oxygenation, and lessened TMJ tension during competition and training.
A full list of Certified GuardLab 3D Locations and products are available on guardlab.com. Customers can also purchase APEX™ and APEX™ Lite variations on Amazon.com and at select partner retailers, team dealers and gyms.
