GuardLab® Inc., a New York-based, innovative sports technology company, utilizing 3D scanning technology and 3D printing to create the most accurate fitting mouthguards in the market, announced today they are collaborating with leading hockey equipment manufacturer Bauer® Hockey to supply a new line of Bauer APEX™ and APEX™ Lite Mouthguards, a product of GuardLab, available this September.
"Bauer Hockey believes that all athletes – especially hockey players – should always wear a mouthguard, even if not mandated by their teams or leagues, to protect their teeth and minimize injuries. Bauer looked at several alternatives, concluding that GuardLab produces the best, most comfortable and form-fitting mouthguards," said Ed Kinnaly, CEO of Bauer Hockey.
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.
January 28, 2019 | GuardLab® visited San Jose, California in late January to meet the All-Star Roster at the 2019 All-Star Games, held at SAP Center in San Jose, home of the San Jose Sharks.
During the All-Star Weekend, GuardLab met with NHL Athletes to 3D scan them for custom mouthguards, using GuardLab’s 3D Technology, powered by 3Shape. NHL Athletes were fitted for GuardLab’s proprietary ARC-PRO Guards that feature an Alignment Repositioning Cushion engineered to help keep the airways open, increase stability in the head, neck and jaw muscles and reduce TMJ tension for overall improved protection and performance.
