Australian launch of company specialising in mouthguards


Last month, sportstech company GuardLab, which produces custom neuromuscular mouthguards using 3D scanning and 3D printing, opened its new Asia Pacific headquarters in Melbourne.

According to the press release announcing the launch, the mouthguards “provide protection, legitimate performance enhancement and recovery to many athletes of different ages, from a variety of sports.”

Currently, there are limited options for the millions of Australians who wear mouthguards regularly, for sports such as rugby, hockey, cricket or soccer.

The press release goes on to say that the key difference between the boil and bite or traditional custom guards available and GuardLab mouthguards, is the technology involved in creating the latter.

“Using 3D scanning and 3D printing technology means the scan of an individual’s mouth is far more accurate and precise than dental impression materials more commonly used.

“The GuardLab method also uses Alignment Repositioning Technology which aligns and repositions the jaw to correct muscle imbalances, improve neuromuscular response and increase oxygen intake.

“With the above all taking place within 15 minutes, the result is a more comfortable and natural feeling guard that benefits every type of athlete, increases performance and doesn’t compromise on safety.”
