GUARDLAB ANNOUNCES HOCKEY BRAND AMBASSADOR, JAMES VAN RIEMSDYK

NEW YORK | MARCH 11,  2019 - GuardLab® a New York-based custom mouthguard company specializing in 3D technology and 3D printing announces today a new Hockey Brand Ambassador, NHL forward James van Riemsdyk of the Philadelphia Flyers.  Van Riemsdyk joins a diverse and talented spectrum of passionate and dedicated athletes, who believe in the superior quality of GuardLab products and our modern technology to improve the way athletes protect their teeth.  

"I first got scanned for my GuardLab mouthpiece this past summer and the process couldn't have been easier. It only took about ten minutes to do the 3D scan, so you don't have to deal with the messy putty, clearly the technology is way better. I feel like that [process] allowed for a better fit, and now I find that my mouthguard is in my mouth more often than hanging out of the side of it.  Not only was the process way easier, but the product is way better than what I've had in the past” said NHL forward, James van Riemsdyk.

True, PSISTORM Gaming, StarCraft II Tournament at the e-sports arena sponsored by GuardLab

GuardLab® Joins PSISTORM Gaming at the Celebrate Fairfax Festival

GuardLab proudly sponsored PSISTORM CUP VI with the intent to bring awareness of the benefits that a neuromuscular mouthguard can have on athletes of all sports, including e-gaming. For the average professional e-sports athlete, a typical session can last hours. Hours of intense gaming can lead to teeth grinding and other stress on the jaw.

GuardLab uses 3D digital scanning and 3D printing technologies for its mouthguards, engineered with a proprietary Alignment Repositioning Cushion (ARC™) to align the athlete’s jaw into its most optimal position for the best protection and performance.  Using 3D technology, the mouthguard is able to precisely transfer the information from the individual to accurately design each guard to reduce the risk of injury by increasing airway flow, stability and addressing TMJ alignment.

Guardlab’s 3D Printed Mouth Guards Are Changing the Way the UFC Fights

Aidan Butler has taken teeth, yes teeth, and made them interesting thanks to a few 3D printing machines and some seriously famous athletes.

It's worth mentioning that Guardlab is a young company—really young. It was founded in 2014 but went live in 2015 making them just about 2 or 3 years old depending on how you look at it. In that time, they've not only become the official mouth guard of the most brutal sport on earth, but they provide mouth guards to the New England Patriots, The White Sox, The Blue Jays, Georgetown University, the Australian Football League, the whole of the Renzo Gracie Academy, and more.

Bite Down for Safety's Sake

Written By Raylene Knutson for Frontier Magazine, Issue 03

Getting hit in the head is the reality in many sports. The increasing ubiquity of helmets is a testament to that. Whether it be hockey, skiing, cycling, or many others, head protection is everywhere. Far less common is a piece of safety equipment that could do just as much to protect against injuries: the mouthguard.
