What Makes SISU Mouthguards Unique?

Posted by Sierra Soleimani on Jan 12, 2017 5:04:28 PM

Let's face it. Athletes hate mouthguards. Since their inception, the bulk, the drool and complete lack of comfort have made mouth guards the most dreaded pieces of protective equipment. Yet, mouthguard designs haven't changed much since the 1960's. Some companies expanded flavor lines and cool designs have emerged, but most mouthguard manufacturers are still using the same materials and technology as they did 60 years ago. One great idea and five patents later, that is something a little SISU Mouth Guard has been able to change.

New NATA Guidelines for mouthguard use and care

Posted by Sierra Soleimani on Dec 16, 2016 12:23:17 PM

The National Association of Athletic trainers (NATA) recently released a new position statement on dental injuries.The new position statement is aimed to provide athletic trainers (AT) with recommendations on emergency planning, dental injury classification, education mouthguard effectiveness and mouthguard care. 

Dental injuries and the lack of mouthguard compliance is a multi-layered issue. There isn't one problem source that can be tackled. It is a combination of lack of consistent education, attitudes and mandates. So we're excited to see all of these issues being addressed by such a large governing body.

Although the statement and recommendations are written for ATs, this is information that every coach, parent and athlete should know:

Posted by Sierra Soleimani on Dec 2, 2016 4:07:08 PM

For those who don't know, our company is based in the University of Michigan hometown of Ann Arbor, MI.  So you better believe we were glued to the TV last Saturday watching the Ohio State vs. UofM game.
