If you had a choice between using old athletic equipment and the latest stuff at no extra cost – what would you choose? We think we know the answer. Of course you would go for the latest, most innovative material and technique.
Just the fact that you know you have the latest and the best in technology and protection, will let you focus on the game much better – and be the game changer.
According to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation there are on average 1 million dental injuries related to sporting activities in the US annually.
American Dental Association (ADA) calculates the lifetime cost of an injured tooth to $15-20,000 including all visits and procedures. If that cost is spread over 40 years, the annual cost is about $500/injuried tooth. Consequently, the total annual cost for dental injuries in the USA is $500M, quite an astonishing figure!
A study of 2,000 Swedish hockey players showed that 35% of them had dental injuries, despite wearing mandatory mouth guards. Conventional soft mouth guards are simply not tough enough and in addition they are too uncomfortable and inhibiting the game. And now, at a very affordable price, you will get much better protection that custom fits to your teeth in minutes.
SISU is a novel ultra thin and tough mouth guard that is up to 50% stronger than conventional mouth guards and allows users to breathe, talk and drink. It's the perfect mouth guard for high impact sports, team sports and high performance sports where you need to be able to be at your very best, all the time.
Our competitors claim that they not only provide dental protection but also protects against concussions. Whether we debate this or not, SISU beats its competitors in 4 important material characteristics:
SISU is made from a non-compressible, perforated material and doesn't cave in under impact like conventional mouth guards do (30 times less deformation).
With the help of our special Diffusix™ technique, the impact force is distributed over larger areas, which means less risk of dental injury.
Diffusix technology works with unique impact-energy absorbing perforations and special "crumple zones which direct the impact forces away from the teeth (30-50% lower transfer of impact forces). For more details, go to the section scientific testing.
SISU1.6 is only 1.6 mm thick. This makes the mouth guard extremely comfortable and lets you talk, breathe and drink while wearing it as if there was nothing there. SISU 1.6 is 30% stronger than conventional mouth guards.
SISU 2.4 is our new and tougher product. It is slightly thicker, 2.4mm, but our solid scientific testing shows that SISU 2.4 provides close to 50% better protection than conventional mouth guards.
SISU1.6 and SISU2.4 provide custom fit in a matter of minutes. Clinical studies by us and also an independent study from Adrian College, MI, show superior comfort.
There are several reasons to why the perforations are important.
