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.

Top Alcohol Dragster racer Justin Ashley understands the importance of driver safety. He's also in tune with the importance of a driver's well-being, which is just as important.
Ashley, throughout his second season, has been racing with the aid of a custom-fitted GuardLab mouthguard. While some might be content to get something from a local sports store, he believes you get what you pay for.
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.
The success of Blaydes can be tracked to his wrestling background in high school. Born in Naperville, Illinois he won the wrestling state title in his senior year with an outstanding 44-0 record.
Since 2015, Blaydes has been wearing GuardLab’s 3D scanned ARC-PRO custom mouthguard for peak performance and protection while training and fighting. “I believe that GuardLab produces the best form fitting protection on top of providing some really dope creative designs." - Curtis "Razor" Blaydes

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.
