August 17, 2015. National Lacrosse League (NLL) has announced SISU Mouthguard as the official mouthguard of the NLL. As the league's exclusive supplier, SISU will offer the world's top lacrosse athletes and retailers custom-fit mouthguards powered by Diffusix™ Technology.
"The experience and infrastructure of the National Lacrosse League and their commitment to growing the sport is what makes them the ideal partner. We're excited to become the official mouthguard of the NLL and, through this partnership, bring higher safety standards and better communication to the lacrosse community." said Sassa Akervall, CEO and majority owner of Akervall Technologies, the makers of the SISU Mouthguard.
SISU Mouthguards are 1.6 mm thin protective dental shields, made from a non-compressible, perforated, remoldable thermal polymer. Powered by Diffusix™ technology, SISU Mouthguards deflect impact forces and absorb shock impact. Scientifically-engineered perforations create a custom fit and allow for a natural flow of air and saliva, to help improve communication on the field and increase athletic endurance, due to better breathability. With improved communication and better endurance, SISU guards have become the go-to brand for lacrosse athletes nationwide.
"We're excited to team up with SISU as the league's official mouthguard and help them spread the word to lacrosse players everywhere about their cutting-edge technology in developing the next-generation mouthguard," said NLL Commissioner George Daniel.
