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.
